A bit too much
Okay so today was Easter and I first have to say “He is Risen…He is Risen Indeed!” I was blessed with our service this morning and being able to preach the resurrection of our Lord who is not held in the grave.
But easter also means a bit of overdoing it for me usually. After yesterday’s debacle with Whoppers/Robin Eggs I was prepared to try and “behave myself” today. I had preplanned to eat some of the breakfast casserole I made for the congregation after our SONrise service. I found the recipe when clipping coupons last week. A nice mixture of eggs, cheese, sausage and veggies. I even made it healthier by using some fat free cheese and egg beaters. It was Yummy and no one even knew it was healthier. However I did go overboard and have 2 servings instead of one. I also had some OJ because it had pulp like I love. I also made some cinnamon rolls and I ate one for breakfast and then one later for lunch.
I completely overate for breakfast and was full through lunch. I only had some baby carrots to hold me over. I think I didn’t plan well because I binged on semi-sweet chocolate chips since “its Easter.” I guess I was just on a downward spiral because I ate my leftover cookie dough late last night. Who knows what’s been eating at me that’s causing me to eat. I think I just have been bored and missing the sweets. I need to make sure I alot for some sweets or I’ll go overboard randomly.
Hunni and I went out to dinner tonight because I wanted salad to keep the points low because of my huge portions earlier in the day. We were going to go to Bennigans because I love their buffalo chicken salad with grilled chicken and fat free ranch. However the ENTIRE mall was closed today for Easter. I respect people celebrating the Lord’s resurrection…however I wanted my salad.
We ended up at 99 Restaurant because it was nearby. I was proud of myself that I ordered something from the menu but made all the substitutions I wanted to make it healthy. The original item was a traditional Buffalo chicken salad. However I asked for grilled chicken, no blue cheese crumbles, and fat free vinaigrette instead of the blue cheese dressing. It was good but I was so full from my chocolate binge that I only ate the chicken and a bit of the veggies. But I didn’t stuff myself just because it was there.
I got home and snacked on a few carrots later in the evening….and then more chocolate later for some reason. I think I need to drink more water and get more sweet stuff with less calories. I should have had a sugar-free fudgsicle instead.
Now I feel guilty about all the chocolate and want to hit the gym for a very long time tomorrow to ease my guilt. I can’t let myself push too far the opposite direction with working out. I need to be okay that sometimes I slip. But how to do it I don’t know. At least I got in an hours worth of yoga to get me some AP’s. I’m hoping that now that the craziness is done I’ll get back to “normal”…whatever that is. I miss my good hard workouts and need to get them back. I think they kept me from binging while I was doing a Weight Watchers challenge…thank God I am starting another tomorrow.
