Yesterday was the first day that I “cheated” on my Clean Eating “diet” (I dislike the word diet, but what else would I call it?). By cheating I mean that I went over my daily caloric intake goal which is a max of 1800 calories. I ate 2700 calories yesterday.
I’m blaming it on the alcohol.
I went out last night with my boyfriend and had a vanilla vodka martini, a Ciroc red-berry drink, and a Jagermeister shot.
On the way home I had some alcohol induced hunger and the only thing open nearby was Jack in the Box. I know I shouldn’t have but I bought a Sirloin Cheeseburger.
When I got home to eat it, I immediately looked up the calories on the web. It had 943 calories in that one burger! I ate half of it and demanded that my boyfriend take it away from me. He ate the other half but we both agreed it tasted overly salty
My eating wasn’t great yesterday anyway, because for dinner I went to Wingstop and had 9 wings. But I had budgeted for those 600 calories. I hadn’t budgeted for the alcohol and burger.
Oh well I’m sure this wont be the last time I ever have a high calorie day. I’m not going to beat myself up over it either, especially if it only happens once a MONTH.
What I am going to do is get in the gym today and do some extra cardio to burn some of that off.
