The problem is still choice.

“The problem is choice.” – Neo; The Matrix Reloaded

No, this is not a re-run. I just need to remind myself that I’m in charge of the choices I make. Let’s get the dirty business out of the way first.

Calorie diary – 10/14/14
Budget: 1741
Total Calories: 2174

So…as you can see, I went over by 433 calories. We had baked pork chops with sweet corn and garlic bread for dinner. The garlic bread I made was really good, which killed me. I ended up having four slices. That was a choice on my part…a bad choice.

However, this is not the end of the world. First, it’s one day. One day does not undo the hard work that I’ve put in this far, and I need to remind myself of that. Second, for the three days previous to yesterday, I was under my total calorie budget by 1429 calories…so I did have some wiggle room.

Now, should I have used that wiggle room on garlic bread? Probably not. That’s a lot of carbs and fat. I’m not going to beat myself up about it, I’m just going to remind myself that the choice is mine, and I need to make better ones in the future.

Thanks for reading!
