i know i've been MIA. It's my TOM.. it only comes every 3 months, so when it does come, its bad. I spent the last week eating everything I could get my hands on. I was so ashamed to see the scale going up and not down. BUT.. now that I actually have it, my cravings aren't nearly as bad, and I finished off yesterday at 1,200 calories... burning 1,000 at the gym, so a deficit of around 1,500. My calorie count website said that the exercises I did at the gym only burned 600.. but I was wearing a heart rate monitor.... I wonder which to believe! Anyway... after my 1,200 calorie day.. I had no plans to eat.... but as I was catching up on a tv show, I heard the call of mixed nuts in my cabinet. I ate almost the entire bag... 170 X 5 is the entire bag = 850... I probably ate more like 700. UGH. How is it even possible to eat that many nuts?! And isn't it sad that I don't want to include that in my total for yesterday because I don't want to change my calorie count deficit? I want to lie to myself. How stupid. I have so many good things in my house... so many healthy options. I just need to make a list of things I will eat each day this week... instead of coming home and picking whatever I want bc there are so many options. Hmm.
