Tonight I decided that I’m just working too hard. Well, not really…that’s an overstatement. But I am making choices that are causing me to work harder than necessary.
Food. I still love it. I have to be vigilant with my eating or I easily slide back to a lifetime of bad eating habits.
My son wanted some cookies tonight. When I opened the package I also grabbed myself some. Just a few…okay, five. They were very good.
Serving size? 3 cookies
Calories per serving? 140
If I do the math right, those 5 cookies were about 233 calories. It took me about 2 minutes to eat them. (I’ve always been a fast eater – another bad habit.)
Tonight I ran 3 miles. Fancy-net-calorie-burn-calculators on the web say that at my current weight that burns around 500 calories.
In two minutes of weakness, I “wasted” half of my workout tonight. Was that a good choice? Nope.
That’s a mistake I’m going to try not to make again.
