I’m still human.

I went over my macros today. I didn’t want to go over them today, and I had the freedom to choose not to – but did anyway. Don’t get me wrong – of course I’ve gone over my macros on some days. I usually plan for them. If I’m eating out or celebrating, it’s more than likely and I know it. But this, this I didn’t plan for, it just happened. And yes, I do regret it.

What had happened was…I brought home leftovers (mistake número uno) from a Soul Food dinner party I attended. You’re damn right that included homemade baked mac and cheese, cornbread and little bit of authentic fried chicken. I intended to make the leftovers last a couple days. But maybe because I’ve been feeling more hungry lately (possibly be time for a refeed), but I felt ravenous at lunch. And I ate all the leftovers. I almost didn’t even want to enter the estimated amounts into MFP and call the day a wash. But, I wanted to know the damage.

And guess what? It didn’t end there. I added to the fat and carb fest I had earlier by having bit of chicken lasagna I had left over from the other night when I could’ve had mostly protein and some veggies. And then I had an apple.

I overate today and regret it. But, instead of kicking rocks for the next few days (as was my usual MO), I know that tomorrow is a new day. A new day to reboot and stay on target. What has been done can be undone. Training butt crack of dawn tomorrow and a day of work and hitting those macros dead on. A day to carry on.
