Why do I always use a holiday as an excuse to eat like crap? I've always done it, and today was no different. I am so full, and I feel sick. I didn't start the day with any kind of plan, and that always leads to trouble for me. I don't know why I keep making the same mistake over and over again - eating crappy foods, and not stopping after a few bites like I should when I do choose to eat crappy foods. I feel like I've been there too many times this month! I wouldn't be so upset with myself if I didn't overdue it. Like this morning, we went to my sister's house for breakfast, and my mom ended up bringing fruit WITH fruit dip - you know, the, completely, yummy, but not good for you, cream cheese and marshmallow fluff fruit dip?!! OMG - I love that stuff!! Seriously, give me a spoon, and a corner to hide in, and I could eat a whole big bowl of it - without the fruit!! Anyway, I started out with about a tablespoon of it with some grapes and strawberries, and I didn't need anymore than that, but, oh, I WANTED more, and I couldn't stay away from it! It was calling my name - Here I am, Shannon. I'm soooooo good. Come have some more!! And I listened, I went back two more times! The whole day went this way - too much ham with pecan glaze, one too many buns, too much butter on my potato, etc. So, it's all about poor planning, and poor choices for me. I overdue it! I need to remember - portion control!!
Once my stomach stops hurting, I'm going to walk, at least, 2 miles on my treadmill - maybe I can work off, at least, one of those buns that I ate! :)
I hope you all made better food choices than me today!
