Jan. 11th was an overall good day. I stayed within all my nutritional goals and had 4 glasses of water, my best count yet. For the most part I ate healthy, but had one moment that, while it didn't ruin my counts, is one I want to address.
I call these my "fail food(s)". Not because they, in and of themselves, are bad (though in bulk are definitely unhealthy), but because of the mood and/or reason that led me to indulge in these types of food.
In this case it was a knee-jerk reaction and not one that was thought upon long enough. Had I stepped back and thought it through, I would have probably made a different choice. But, I was hungry and wanted instant gratification. The result: 2 Rocky Road Double Chocolate Chip Cookies @ 160 cals. each = 320 cals.
3 Lessons Learned:
* Reminded me to take a moment to make conscious decisions of what goes into my mouth.
* That this journey is never going to be free of temptations, but that I have the power over them vs. them over me.
* That the world didn't come to an end because I had a hiccup moment. You can be human and still cross the finish line of ultimate weight loss. DON"T LET THESE MOMENTS NEGATE ALL YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED!
* That my other choices within this day were smart and that this one blip didn't effect my overall goals. My cal. count was still below my lowest caloric range and my fats and carbs were within range.
Like the name of this cookie, the road to long term weight loss is a rocky one, but what worth fighting for isn't, right?
Hoping this will encourage someone else who may struggle with moments like this one.
Wishing everyone a positive and healthy day,
