First Day Back - a semi success

I got too aggressive with calorie restriction - especially in the fat department and I was hungry and out of food. Not a good thing to be in an office environment the first day after Halloween. I succumbed to some of the crap candy - but at least I took only a few pieces and made sure it was candy I still really like: Milk Duds(2 mini), Butter Finger(1 fun size), and Snickers (1 fun size).

People - don't be fooled by the small size of those Butter Fingers and Snickers fun size bars. 1 bar (and who really eats just one) is a whopping 100 calories. When you're vertically challenged the way I am, you need to be careful throwing around "100 calories here, 100 calories there. What's 100 calories gonna hurt?" Um...those 10 lbs I'm thinking about shedding.

Anyway - I'm not upset about the small candy splurge. My calories are still good for the day and overall - my food today is infinitely better than it was same day last week. But I still can taste that country fried steak. And I can still remember waking up in pain!

As a fellow weight manager noted - make sure the calorie splurge is worth it!
