Bad Choices = Bad Day

I was really baaaaad today. Dad and mom came over for dad’s birthday. I picked at the bones/skin of the homemade rotisserie chicken while Mike was slicing it and I had some birthday cake. I tried to be honest with the calories and portions and tried to calculate higher.

I did ask mom about the calorie info for the cake and it was 280 calories, 12g fat with 14 servings for the whole cake. Since it was just the four of us, she brought over half the cake. I originally estimated there might be 6 servings, but there truly was 7. I had one piece, plus a few bites of the leftover big chunk that mike ate later on tonight, so I calculated two slices of cake.

I added all the info into myfitnesspal food diary today, I was over 325 calories! The sad part is I could probably eat another dinner right now! sigh! I am hoping I calculated my calories very high so I really didn’t do as bad as it shows! eeek!

It’s funny. When I eat healthier, more sensible choices I don’t find myself getting hungry as much. When I eat food that is higher in calories, etc, I find myself wanting more to eat. Not satisfied. I have to keep that in mind when I want to reach for bad foods. I need to keep reminding myself that better choices keeps me happier!
