I got a little depressed Sunday and yesterday and I just let the chips fall where they may and started eating. Last night, I got home and put in all the food I'd eaten and I really did a bad thing. I'm still within my weekly limits, but for the first time ever, I dipped into my weekly points, and in 2 days consumed 28 of them.
In the cool light of day, I realize I could have called my husband, could have taken a walk, done a crossword puzzle, anything to distract myself. But instead, I sat and ate. Book club did me no favors--the food was so good, I didn't want to prevent myself from eating whatever the heck I wanted.
I came home and did 20 minutes of exercise at 11:00 last night, but it was half-hearted and compared to the aerobics I'm used to doing, what can I say? It's not going to do much.
So I'm back on the wagon as of this morning, and fortunately I do have the points left over that I don't have to worry about it. Still, I hope that I won't allow myself to slip like that again. It was very, very worrying that it just went so far.
