Good day (so far).....

Had a minor lapse over the weekend. I did well on Saturday, but then Sunday came.... and my enemy appeared more appealing than ever. The Boyfriend and I went to BW3's. I am such a sucker for some boneless wings with Asian Zing sauce! Darn it all! I caved. I instantly felt guilty. My problem with giving in to temptation is that when I trip, I tend to trip big time... like fall flat on your face kind of stuff. And it always seems to snowball. You get that mind-set of "well, I already cheated today so I'm not going to stay below the calories I wanted to anyway." That's always a trap for me. That's exactly the thought I was thinking a few hours after the BW3's incident when I wanted a Strawberry shake. However.... I didn't get it! Yay for at least a little bit of willpower yesterday.

Normally when I cheat on the weekends, it's really hard to get back on track on Monday. But today I did very well.

Breakfast - Yoplait yogurt and an apple (175 calories)
Lunch- Turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread w/ 100 calorie bag of popcorn. (250 calories)
Snack - Small bag of baked Lays (170 calories)
Dinner - Turkey Hot Dogs on light wheat buns w/ side of organic, steamed carrots and vegetarian baked beans. (700 calories)
Dessert: Mott's individual Strawberry Applesauce cup (50 calories)

Total today: 1345. Yay!

Now, hopefully off to bed so that I can get up and go running before work. I'm really trying, I swear.
