Until this last weekend, I never realized how much my mood affects what I eat. Last week was a bad week for me. I had a migraine for 5 days, in bed for 2 of them. Then my daughter informs me she is moving out into an apartment of her owe very soon. She gave me like a weeks notice. Not sure if more notice would have changed anything. Stress at work from missing 2 days in a row and the nature of the business we are in. All added up to a “cheat week”.
Ok, It wasn’t that extreme but kinda feels that way. Good news, I must not have been too bad since the scale hasn’t moved. But I ate things I normally don’t eat and in quantities that I normally avoid. I’ve been snacking a lot on the desserts I’ve made. Those are keto friendly but still add up in the calories and fat departments. We splurged and took my daughter and her boyfriend out for Mexican. I ate a whole fajita and chips. Normally I would say no to the chips and only eat 1/2 of a fajita complete with refried beans, cheese and sour cream. The flour tortillas are pretty big at the place we go to. Also, went to the movies on Saturday so I ate popcorn (which I do every weekend). My hubby has some sour patch kids and I ate about a handful of those delicious evil treats. Also made a quick run through the Dairy Queen to get Blizzards. I got my favorite, Salted Caramel Truffle in a small.
Now is the time to get back on track. I have to deal with my moods and emotions in a more productive way. Need to figure out what that is. But for now, I’m hitting the gym and being more strict on my food intake. I am working to be more intentional with how I nourish my body. I felt horrible after I ate all the tings I normally avoid. I remember why I made the changes in the first place.
I’m refocused and ready to move forward. Wish me luck!
