Breakfast can make or break you...

Today I had a family breakfast and my portion totaled about 1350 calories. ???! This left me with hardly any calories for the rest of the day and led to me being hungry and desperate by evening.

What have we learned from this?

1. Don't eat huge breakfasts without considering the calories BEFORE YOU EAT. Don't wait til after you've eaten bacon and donuts to consider the calorie count.

2. When you've had a lot of calories earlier in the day, eat smaller meals the rest of the day. DON'T GIVE IN TO PIZZA JUST BECAUSE YOUR SISTER IS MAKING IT HOMEMADE.

3. Don't eat something in a hurry. Don't grab ice cream or a dessert on a whim. Especially when it's a food you don't even really like. (ugh)

4. Don't eat chocolate several times a day. It just leaves you hungry for MORE. MORE MORE MOOOOOORRREEE CHOCOLATE!

I let myself have a huge breakfast maybe once a month... it usually ends up being a brunch and also usually ends up being the bulk of my calories for the day. It can be a major bummer to use so many calories up before noon!
