The last few days.

 have been a bit of a train wreck and I need to get things back in line. Let's examine....

On Friday we went to lunch like we always do. Hubby had a pretzel and I ended up eating half of it. Then, after picking up Lola from the vet, we swung through McDonald's to get ice and Hubby wanted an ice cream cone, so I got one too. I did feel like crap after I ate it and ended up doing 60 minutes of Supernatural. A few hours after working out, my left calf became extremely painful. The muscle feels really tight, almost like a cramp. It is not exactly painful, it is just that I can't walk normally because the muscle is not moving properly. So I'm walking all wonky and I know that will screw with my back. I have to focus really hard to walk somewhat normally so that my back doesn't end up hurting. So I'm walking slowly and purposefully in order to try and walk normally. I did end up going to Costco with Hubby and while walking through I decided to get some sweets. I initially picked up something that was really sweet and had a lot of sugar, even though it was paleo. After a few minutes I put those back and said no, I don't want sweets. Right after which I picked up these things called Aussie bites

They are oats, apricots, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey, coconut, quinoa, chia seeds, and some other things. Decidedly a decent snack. Snacks in general are not the greatest, but this has lots of good things. As snacky things go, this is not horrible. But then I ate 8 of them. 8!!! Really?  I sort of felt like my old binging self. I wasn't hungry. I didn't need them. I'm not sure I even wanted them. But I ate them. Actually I ate 8 of them. 

So 2 days in a row I ate an excessive amount of junk food and lots of sugar. Time to regroup. I need to get away from these things. Hubby will freak if I throw them away even though he hates them and won't eat them. But I am thinking of freezing them in pairs and that way I will have to put some effort and forethought into having any of them. But I think I'll just probably throw them away. 

Okay, so that nonsense is completely over. I'm done with junk. We are going to dinner tonight with friends at Joe's Crab Shack. That is a place to get good, healthy food. As for the rest of the day, there is no need to eat junk so I won't. 

I got on the scale this morning and it was the highest it's been in weeks. I think there is a correlation and I need to pay attention to that. 

Okay, I'm off to hobble to the kitchen.
