I must confess, I had a big slip-up eating-wise yesterday. I was feeling very down all afternoon after spending too much time entering my billable time in our computer system and generally dwelling on all the negative things in my life.

I decided I was going to "treat" myself with some off-plan food. I was tempted to go to Chino Bandido again, but I didn't want to go quite that far off plan. So I went to Qdoba and had a mini quesadilla and mini nachos.

All told, my little "splurge" cost me close to 1000 calories. Not great, but I estimate about half the calories of what I would have ordered at Chino Bandido. I tried to ameliorate some of the damage by just having fruit & cereal with milk for dinner.

I have to say, the meal *did* make me feel better, at least temporarily. Of course, after a couple of hours, I felt icky because I'm just not used to eating like that anymore.

Today my mood is slightly improved--trying to focus on the positive--and I am back on track.

And ironically, the scale was the lowest this morning that it's been in days. Go figure. . . . .

Don't feel bad. I ate a cream filled long john donut this morning. A client walked into my office, thanked me for being here early, gave me her payment, and handed me the bag from the shop in my building. I couldn't help myself and I downed the entire thing in seconds. I felt guilty but decided not to be too hard on myself. You shouldn't either. We're human and we love food!
