I posted my Tuesday meals on my WIAW post yesterday, and I planned to eat basically the same thing all week. Hmmm… that didn’t work out so well.
First hiccup in the plan: un-satisfying lunch
I know better. That’s one of my top diet rules: don’t make a plan with food you don’t like. Of course, I didn’t realize I wasn’t going to like the dressing before I bought it, but nevertheless – this is what happened instead.
It’s a wheat baba ganoush pita from Pita Pit with spinach, cucumber, a little onion, and a little black olive. Yum!
Second hiccup in the plan: calorie miscounting
Tracking calories works best when you enter the right food into your calorie-counter app. I accidentally entered a Larabar mini instead of a regular Larabar. By the time I realized my mistake, I had already gone 110 over my limit. Oh well – no biggie!
I still thoroughly enjoyed my leftover channa masala without an ounce of regret. It tasted extra-good since I enjoyed it after my post-work trip to the gym. (20 minutes elliptical followed by 1-hour body pump class)
My arms were burning in class! I’m surprised I could hold up the camera for this sweaty photo once I got home.
Ever have diet mishaps (whether you’re “dieting” or not)?
