90-Day Challenge: Day 84 – Had a bad day


What’s the best thing I can say about my eating today?  Tomorrow’s coming.

The day started out innocently enough.  My wife made pancakes, turkey bacon and sausage links.  I had some of each, with coffee.  Okay, not too bad, really.  We have a relative recovering from surgery and we took her over lunch, which was a Bob Evans family meal.  This is where things went completely off the rails.  Though I only had one helping, I at turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, a dinner roll and a 12 oz coke.

Now, did I stop while I was behind?  Of course not.  Two more sets of relatives had joined  and one of them brought over a birthday cake to have a mini-celebration for another relative.  So, I couldn’t be rude (aka, sensible) and avoid the cake AND ice cream, right?  Yeah, I did it.

Okay, dinner was just pasta and meat sauce (made with ground turkey) but, the damage has been done.

So, I look forward to tomorrow.  I plan on making better choices and getting in some activity.

But, as for today, it was just one of those days…
