Way Over

I'm still using the LoseIt app.  It's been a week and a half, and I haven't forgotten to log anything yet.  I've done fairly well with it; I usually end the day with calories left over.  This week, though, my period finally started, which means I've been craving salt, fat, and carbs.  Today, I'm ending 566 calories over-budget.  I can pinpoint where I went over: I had a 12-ounce can of Coke and a serving of Trader Joe's chocolate-covered potato chips, for 370 calories in the "snack" column, and then we went to Carl's Jr. for lunch, where the small fries and low-carb SuperStar with cheese, no tomato or mayo, ran 880 calories.  Getting the burger without the bun (because of gluten) and no mayo (because I don't like mayo) helped take the sandwich from over 900 calories to 560 calories, but still, those four items were a calorie sink.

I got the Coke because I was seriously craving one the other day.  However, when I had it, it didn't taste like I expected.  It didn't have the "zing" or "bite" I remembered Coke having.  Matt had a sip and agreed, it tasted weak, like watered-down fountain soda.  I also felt it tasted a bit cloying.  I didn't remember Coke having such a negative aftertaste.  I told him that the next time I was craving a Coke, I'd try one of the Mexican Cokes they sell, that are supposedly made with cane sugar, not HFCS, and if it still tasted off, I'd just have to remember that "Coke doesn't taste the way I think Coke tastes anymore."

I'm not going to beat myself up for going over-budget today, because I've been under-budget the rest of the week.  In fact, even with today's splurge, I'll still be about 500 calories under budget for the week.
