I slipped yesterday. I ended up inthe resturaunt by myself (with a plan) but ran into a friend. And before I knew it - my plan was gone and we were enjoying a wonderful evening. (Well you know what that means - an extra bite here, snack mix there, the piece of pizza you shouldn't have had.) Well later of course you feel guilty. But then I faced up to it - and logged what I had eaten - and guess what I only went over my target calories by 200 calories. Yippee!!! (Means extra fitness minutes and getting back on track today)
But the victory was - due to my new habits - I was able to enjoy the little extras and watch how much I did eat and did not totally blow it. Also - it was so nice to have the feedback from the tools at SparkPeople as I could have really really been down thinking about how I blew the hard work that I have been putting in to this program. I love this place!! We are making lifestyle changes and not depriving ourselves. Yes there was a big victory here!! And not a defeat that could have sent me into a downward spiral.
