Day 18 Cheat day?

Ok so today is shot.  Although my food log has been all over the place the last two days I still managed to come in under my alloted 1700 calories from what I could tell.  But today, forget about it (said in my best New York accent)! Breakfast was pretty good with 1/2 a bowl of oatmeal, but for lunch we ate at Jimmy John's & I had their delicious Club sandwich coming in at a whopping 926 calories!! On top of that I ate the whole bag of chips, 300 calories alone. 

As if that weren't bad enough, tonight I'm going to an awards dinner with my sister & it's a buffet style dinner, so I have no clue what the selections will be.  Am I going to make good choices?  I may, it depends on what they're serving.  But I'm not too terribly worried b/c I've been good all the rest of this week & tomorrow is a new day.  All I can hope for at Sunday's weigh in is to not have a gain.  But if I do then I do, I know it will only be temporary.  This is a journey for me.  I'm learning lessons as I go and making choices day by day.  So, if today wasn't that hot, that doesn't mean that I have to continue down this treacherous path tomorrow too.  Today is one day out of the rest of my life & today's bad decisions don't have to affect my future forever.  Every meal is a chance to turn it all around. 

So, if you've been putting off this whole "weight loss" thing, then just remember, every new meal is a new chance to make that change!!

I'll be sure to take some pictures tonight of the dinner. 

Hope everyone has a great Friday night!!


  1. I love Jimmy John's, but their sandwiches can be awful for you! Try out their website - their nutrition facts are interactive, which is awesome. You can take any sandwich, add and subtract whatever you'd like, and get the calorie info. My favorite is the Beach Club ... for 830 calories! Yikes! But I have them unwich it (lettuce wrap instead of bread) and hold the mayo (no need for it, as it has avocado spread) and then double the meat (more protein is always good!) and it's only 350 calories, a decent meal!

    1. Hmmm, I think I'll head over there. I LOVE the sub I get but I can't handle that many calories, I mean sheesh that was close to my calories for the whole day. Of course next time I won't get the 300 calorie bag of chips either!! :)
