Diet Sabotage

Yesterday was a big fat diet fail, and let me tell you why.

I have been waking up around 8, eating a big breakfast with lots of carbs fiber, and then going to work out at the gym. Yesterday I had the bright idea that I would eat a little bowl of cereal and a small thing of yogurt, and go do my regular workout.  I didn't even drink coffee... bad idea. About halfway through my workout I was starving! I kept going and did everything I usually do, 3 miles on the elliptical and 2 miles on the treadmill. Anyone that knows me knows that I can not stand being hungry (obviously, look at me). It puts me in the worst mood ever. I got home and ate the usual lunch of fruit and a FiberOne bar, but an hour later I was starving again. It was a downward spiral from there. To top it all off I had a headache by 4 pm because of the lack of caffeine (that addiction is starting to get annoying, I have to drink coffee whether I want to or not).

Today I felt horrible about eating too much yesterday, so I did an extra-hard workout at the gym. I woke up and had my usual breakfast about 5 hours ago, and have yet to get hungry. The lesson here my friends is to Eat a good breakfast!!! At least if you're like me. Some people can deal with hunger, I'm not one of them.

I must say that this is the first time I have ever had a diet pitfall and jumped right back on board the next day! I thank weightwatchers for that (or maybe I thank them for charging me $65, so I feel like I have to). I also think this is the longest time I've ever consistently went to the gym. Yay for small victories!
