Ice cream and rules
This week I wasn’t feeling too well for a few days and I let it push me out of track. I didn’t log my food for a few days and didn’t go shopping for food either. When I wasn’t feeling too good I finished the macarons and other cookies that were in the freezer(there wasn’t many left at least). We went at the grocery store (the 3 of us) on Sunday and my daughter chose a box of frozen strawberry yogurt on a stick with chocolate coating. My husband chose a carton of breyers banana cream pie and I wanted to by a mini cup of the real cream cappuccino flavour and there was none left…so I bought a big carton of it.
When we got home I took a measuring cup and served myself 1/2 cup of the ice cream and ate it (from the measuring cup). Big disappointment! It was nothing like the mini cups I usually buy, it is the same brand and same flavour, so is it a conspiration from the company who makes the delicious mini cup to make you buy the big mediocre tub!
That night (obviously I wasn’t satisfied) I don’t know why but I took a spoon and open the freezer to try husband’s ice cream. OH MY! It is sooooo yummy so I ate my half cup directly from his ice cream carton in front of the freezer. Ok out of control? Looks like it but it was like that for the whole week. Worst than that, I really didn’t exercise much.
I could blame all that on losing my Fitbit because it has kind of destabilised me a bit but I am pretty sure that it is due to a lack of sleep. I can’t seem to be able to put myself to bed or I should say turn this bloody laptop off when I am in bed. It is getting later and later. Reading blogs and other stuff online but yesterday it was an old strategy game that I found while cleaning the computer armoire. I don’t see the time going when I play that because when I realised it was 4ham….I was so mad at myself.
Sorry for the big splash of negativity but writing it is helping me see the cause and the solution to my problems. I have to get myself back on track. I need to focus on these 4 rules until we live for Australia.
1- Going to bed and turn the laptop off at a reasonable time : midnight
2-Do a work out everyday
3-Track my food
4- Only have 1 treat a day
It is the first time I have too give myself rules or day goal since I have started so I will tell you how I did with those tomorrow.
