This past week I have been eating way too many calories. I notice when I am out all day , eating out, I eat so many more calories than when I just stay home all day. When I stay home I eat less than 1600 calories a day, when I am out all day I eat more than 2000. One day last week I ate over 3000 calories. It was a day when I had multiple job interviews and I had therapy in the evening, I ate whattaburger for breakfast, Blue Baker for lunch and I think thai food for dinner with a boba tea. So many of my calories were liquid, cause I had a shake, a caramel ice coffee and that boba. I only followed the diet calorie restrictions 3 days last week.
Yesterday we were at a hotel and then we went to a symposium, I ate an over abundance of junk for breakfast yesterday, At the hotel I had eggs and 3 danish and orange juice for breakfast, then at the symposium I had a cinnamon roll, tuna sandwich and ginger ale. For dinner I had some indian food and lemonade.
Today I ate at IHOP with my mom for the Eid, end of Ramadan. My mom is Muslim and fasted all of Ramadan and she wanted to go out to celebrate the end of it. I had pancakes, eggs, turkey bacon, hash browns and orange juice. So yea. I don’t want to step on the scale cause I am pretty sure I gained weight.
That’s the thing about me, I can follow a diet for about 4 months, then I go back to eating crap. I can’t stick to it longer. This is what I’m working on in therapy.
