Just a silly mistake...

edited January 2016 in Goal: Maintaining Weight
I fell asleep rather early and I panicked when I saw the time, got ready for work, and ate breakfast as fast as I could. Halfway out the door I realized it was 9 pm and not 9 am... Problem is, the breakfast was pre-planned for the next day and now I'm far over the limit for today. If I continue tomorrow as if I had eaten it at the right time, it ought to balance out, right?

    You are maintaining right? One meal, one day over is not going to mess you up long term. Just eat like normal the next day and it will all even out in the long run.

    You are never going to make up for that, sorry :D
    Lol, tomorrow is another day, no worries.
    To avoid this happening again, buy a 24 hour clock/watch.

    I would think it will balance out.

    Also, been there, done that (or something very similar). When I was in college, I was prescribed codeine for headaches I was having. I took one in the early afternoon and felt sleepy so I set the alarm for when the dining hall opened for dinner. I went to bed. When I woke up to the sound of the alarm, I was so out of it that I went through my entire morning routine. Then I went to the dining hall. And wondered why they were serving dinner food at breakfast time. Doh. Have never taken codeine again (and it has been probably 17 years since that happened)...

    Honestly though, I wouldn't eat breakfast if I wasn't hungry, one way or another... were you hungry at 9pm? lol.

    No, but I'm seldom hungry in the morning, either. Due to my schedule, it's prudent to eat breakfast regardless because I know I won't have access to any food until the late afternoon or evening and it can be distracting and unpleasant to feel desperately hungry during that period.

    Sense of perspective OP - you really need to get one.

    How many days in a year? How many meals in that year? How much does each individual meal really matter in the grand scheme of things?

    Let it go and move on.

    Oh man, that brings back memories of high school when I had to get up at 4 am for hockey practice and when I was working 2 full time jobs and a part time job. There was a few times I got up, dressed and headed out the door for the wrong engagement.

    I go to school full-time during the day during the week and work overnights on the weekends. There has been more than one occasion of me waking up and not knowing whether it's am or pm.

    You probably burned half those calories just panicking that you were late. ;)

    I've actually done this before. I don't get enough sleep so really thought I crashed and woke up the next morning. Turns out it was 8pm not 8am.
    Just carry-on as normal and don't sweat it.

    Haahaa your calorie goal will even out. Your ability to not be teased endlessly will take longer to recover.

    This reminds me of something that happened to me twenty years ago. I fell asleep in the afternoon and slept really soundly until 6:30. I slept so well that I was sure it was actually 6:30 the next morning when I woke up and I started work at 6:00. It was in the fall, so 6:30 at night looked just like 6:30 in the morning. I got dressed in record time, flew down the stairs, jumped in my car and peeled out on the highway. About a mile down the road, I began to wonder why the sun was behind me, since I was driving east. That's when I realized it was early in the evening, not morning.
