A palmful of protein, a handful of carbs. I'm a 6'2" 185 lb. guy, so I was in the habit of stretching those a little bit. Yesterday was a stressful day at work - but I was doing well until I got a call from my girlfirend to see if I wanted to do a late lunch. It was time for my next meal, so we went to Chipotle.
It had been just over 3 hours since my last meal and I was hungry. I went with a burrito bowl - rice, beans, chicken, pico de gallo, salsa, lettuce. I thought I was doing it right. I didn't finish it all, either. That night I went home and made my own steak burrito (steak, rice, peppers, onions, gaucamole, salsa, multigrain tortilla) - well, I thought I was making one - I couldn't wrap it up, so I ended up with two. I ate both.
I felt so sick. My burritos were a meal apiece, and even though I had one more meal to go, eating them one after the other was a bad idea. I went online to find the nutrition info for my Chipotle trip earlier in the day. I was blown away. 550 calories. As much as a Big Mac. In fact, Chipotle doesn't even have Nutrition Info on their website - I had to search for it. Wow. Up to this point (C1W2D3), I hadn't been counting calories too closely.
I felt awful - physically awful. My stomach hurt so much that I wished I could just vomit and go to sleep and hopefully feel better the next day. I can't believe I took Chipotle for granted for so long - I've loved eating there for so long, but it's definitely not authorized now.
There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.
Ok Clint, you've recognized what slipping up feels like and are now motivated to be more vigilant. Let it go and move on bud.
Yeah, yeah... Ive done it on my fee day... Getting a bacon western cheese burger and feeling terrible afterward. This has caused me to rethink my free days (-:
Correct and move forward!
ClintL just look at it this way. You are so much more aware now that you won't let it happen again. Don't beat yourself up. Oh and fyi, it's not a handful of carbs. It's a serving the size of your balled up fist which should be much larger than a handful on a 6'2" guy ;o)
