1250 extra calories...

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Performing yesterday was really hot although we had the most beautiful scene:

Acting in long thick skirt, shirt, vest and wig was exhausting... so I decided that I would allow myself an icecream... a Häagen-dazs "salty caramel"...Unfortunately they don´t come in smaller servings than 500 ml at the store and believing that I would eat only half is so far pure fantasy...1250 calories in one snack! Totally not worth it, I have decided that if I am going to have icecream I will not settle for anything but the really delicious one and that is Häagen-Dazs... but I know that there are smaller servings, 250 ml I think so I will go looking for those ones to have the very rare times I will enjoy one.

Lunch was otherwise very smart - my homemade "sushi-to-go":

looked and tasted delicious, will be a favourite.

But then a sandwich extra coming home and tortillawraps for dinner made the day in a 1000 "overdraft" of my calorie account. That consequence makes it not worth it to me. I was too exhausted by the heat and the long drive to make a good decision have to consider that and plan better next time...

...and next time might be today as we have another performance, also at a sort of harvest festival. The drive there is a lot shorter, only 30 minutes but the weather seems to be equally hot, need to bring lots and lots of water and drink, drink, drink...

AND I have planned to drive daughter instead of sending her with the bus tonight, maybe that is stupid if I want to stay on track, there is a great risk of me making bad decisions when I have to drive too long in the sunny weather....

Started the day with left over bread, not good caloriewise, the breakfast ended up with 1000 calories... compensated with biking for an hour with doggy, that gave me 500 calories so the day ahead is doable...

    Temptations are all around us, and Haagen-Daz on a hot day sounds like a taste of heaven. emoticon

    When days are hectic and upset my plan so that i eat more than I should, it comforts me to remember that one way to keep from getting stuck is to significantly change the amount of calories we eat - higher some days, lower others. Keeps the metabolism guessing. Extra calories now and then means we're not starving! So we're less likely hit a plateau. I don't know if that will help but maybe it will. Your sushi looks fantastic, and I love the pepper serving as a cup for the ginger! I don't want ice cream - I want SUSHI! Hope the performance was great, and that you have a wonderful happy healthy week!

    I like your plan to look for the smaller portion. Setting an intention like that has often been helpful for me.

    I read your headling - "1250 extra calories" - and I admit, my first thought was "Oh, wonder what it was? I WANT some--!" lol... Is food ever far from my (our) thoughts?
