It seems like no matter how well I do during the week, my weekend eating habits ruin any chance at weight loss. Don't get me wrong, I go into each weekend with the idea of eating healthily and staying on track, but somehow it never goes according to plan.
Saturday I picked up some Boudin around lunch time for my boyfriend and I. I planned for this by eating a small breakfast. We both have been wanting to get some boudin for a long time now. If you are from the South, you know what I am talking about! The stuff is delicious.
Anyway, I ate a light breakfast and ate our boudin and I would have been able to finish the day okay-ish if I ate a healthy dinner. Turns out the boyfriend wanted me to cook pizza that night so we could stay in and have a movie marathon. So I made a couple pizzas from scratch and they were very good. Then he bought a case of hard cider and I drank one. My calories for the day were about 2,500....great....
Today I had the munchies all day. I was bored, I was tired, etc. I snacked on grapes, blueberries, nectarines, chips, crackers. Anything. I was hungry. Nothing would fill me up. We also went out for ice cream tonight. Saturday and Sunday...both days over 2,000 calories. Why is it so difficult to stay under 2,000? I feel disappointed in myself, but at the same time I realize that to have any sort of social life, it usually involves eating a lot of extra calories. Such a struggle. I am hoping I can find some sort of balance sooner rather than later.
