I have a question!

I confess I binged last night I ate 4 servings of heath ice cream last night. It is so hot and I was craving sweets. I went to go make a smoothie but realize I had no berries besides my room mates blue berries GROSS!!!! So needless to say I ate a small container of vanilla heath ice cream. I looked at it and realized I ate 4 servings. But, here is my question before I ate the ice cream I only consumed 839 calories and according to Sparkpeople I should be eating 2100 calories. So I ate 2000 calories yesterday. I have been marking my calendar for days that I eat and work out the way I should. So, since ice cream is not on my plan did I not eat well that day. Or should I look at it since I ate under my calories I did eat on plan????

This G** Damn Knee
So apparently I did mess up my knee pretty bad. It was spasming all day yesterday and giving me pain when I stepped on it. I iced it and put heat on it. I stayed off of it for the most part. I have such issues with my knees I was hoping I would not have any issues with it. I do not have medical insurance. So I will keep off of it as much as I can and keep icing it.


  1. Hi Jamie! First off I'd say, don't beat yourself up over it because yesterday is gone. Just move forward. But also, a treat is certainly ok. Sure, you don't want to go for that many servings as a rule, but it happened, it's ok.
    I can really relate as I had a super sweet attack last week - pretty much every day!! I wasn't happy with myself, but I've moved on.

    I heard Jillian Michaels say to use the 80/20 rule, meaning make 80% of your calories healthy, and then you can do 20% in treats or 'not so healthy' foods.

    I hope you have a great week!!!

  2. I am not beating myself up about it. I know it was a mistake and its time to move on and know I am eating better then I have in a long time!

  3. You've been awarded. Stop by my blog to pick it up!

  4. What you eat is vitally important to losing weight. If you eat 20% of your calories as empty, unhealthy food, I don't see how you can lose weight. Maybe at maintenance that would work, but for most people trying to lose weight, that's a good way to sabotage yourself. So I definitely disagree with Jillian. But I am with you on not beating yourself up. Tomorrow is past, time to move on. Keep making healthy choices from now on. :-)

    Hope your knee heals quickly. I hurt mine in Feb falling on ice and was off exercise for several weeks. Went to my doctor and she said "Rest for a while" I hate ambiguity, so it annoyed me. But she did give me some hamstring stretches for the muscles that support the knee. When I went to the ER, they told me to ice it for 20 minutes every hour. I did that for 48 hours. Good luck!

  5. Crap, shouldn't write while watching TV. YESTERDAY is past. Tomorrow is a new chance to make healthy choices. Sheesh! ;-)

  6. Yeah I don't think Jillian idea of 80/20 is all that great. The way I look at it is I am plan 80-90% of the time then I am doing great. If I am too strict then I fall off of the wagon. I just need to learn to portion control.
