Thank goodness for logging!

I just ate several cookies. They were good but I now feel sick! Which I’m kinda glad about cuz maybe I’ll remember that next time! (I know it won’t make a difference in the future, but I can hope!) Why did I make these cookies anyway? They were convenient and easy and I wanted to give the kids a treat to come home to. Sooo anyway, I WAY overindulged!I was really feeling bad about it, and guilty.

I realized I hadn’t logged in my calories for the day, so I just put them into Lose It.

I’m so grateful for Carrie and her workouts. (I may not be tomorrow, when I can’t walk from all the squats!)  It was intense for me this morning, and I burned about 500 calories. I had a healthy lunch, and a very low cal breakfast. (I’m not mentioning the cookies I had as soon as I got out of bed this morning 🙂 I did count them on my log though!! So when all was tabulated on Lose It, it tells me that I still have plenty of calories left for a nice dinner. Before logging I was feeling like all was lost from the cookies. The log put things in black and white. All was not lost! I’m feeling much better about today. If I hadn’t have logged my calories, I would have continued to feel bad and probably not cared what I ate the rest of the day, but instead I have the tools to make better and wiser choices. I have maxed out my desserts for the day, so I will not eat anymore cookies, but I can still eat and stay within my calorie count. I’m still frustrated that I ate that much junk, and I feel sick! but at least I don’t feel like I’ve blown it! Thank goodness for logging, I feel much better now!
