I got myself to the gym, and had a great weights session. I also did a fair bit of walking and carrying groceries today. All was going really well, until this afternoon.
I organised a Spanish meal with a group of people from work. I hosted it and it was a lot of fun getting the food prepared. I cooked a vegetarian paella, as some of my friends are vegetarian. Everyone brought a dish and we had a veritable feast.
I also bought some cheese, biscuits and olives. After the others left, I managed to eat the leftovers. I totally blew my calorie budget for the day and I am really disappointed in myself.
I am trying to think of the things that I did today that showed control over the demon food, and I did have a few small victories. I managed to send the bag of potato chips that didn't get opened home with someone. I threw out some of the cheese and olives. I put the rest of the really delicious cape seed loaf in the freezer.
I suppose I can take consolation in the fact that a really bad day now is nothing like a really bad day used to be, but I had thought I'd do a lot better. I am going to have to improve in this area. I like hosting festive occasions. I just have to be smarter in future.
I think, for a while at least, I'll have to keep cheese on the forbidden food list. I like it more than is good for me.
Still, this is just a setback and I am back on track already.
