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.

    I’m glad to hear that you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and aren’t going to give up over a bad day – it’s very easy to do.

    One thing that helped me tremendously was giving up alcohol altogether. If you can do that, you’ll save tons of calories and also keep your wits about you when you’re around food. It’s hard for the first few weeks, but after that you hardly miss it.

    Looking forward to more updates!

      I was just talking to my boyfriend about this. I told him I’m going to look up low calorie alcohol drinks

    Alcohol will slow your fat loss for a day or so after. Low calorie or not. If you have to drink watch out for your mixers, and any sweet alcohol (rum especially)… clearer is usually better. If you want a burger, why not do a turkey burger or buffalo on a whole wheat bun, load up the veggies on it.

      you’re right, I’ve noticed that alcohol wrecks havoc on my results. I’m trying to figure out what to do about that cause my boyfriend takes me out to a bar once a week. *SIGH*
