This weekend was pretty bad. I took some pills that made me hungry ~ so it wasn't 'all' my fault. But ~ I did eat more than I should have. It was late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. I did not eat 'bad' things, just things I have been eating, but I ate way too much of them. Since it was officially Sunday, when I got up, I counted some of them as Sunday food. So, I was able to 'recover' from some of the screw-up. Still some calories over.
Then, last night, after another pill, I had a PB&J sandwich that I 'shouldn't have' had. But, I woke up late today, so I counted that as 'breakfast' today. So, I was able to recover a bit from that ~ ~ POINT BEING that I am still some calories over for the whole weekend AND I wasn't following 'the program' properly, with having to revamp everything. I do NOT want to be doing that. OK ~ once is acceptable and it's better than going way over ~ and keeping on screwing up . . . but if I'm going to do this program, and do it right, I have to be honest with the daily count, and myself, each and every day.
In the past, I would have said 'screw it' and quit the whole program. I know I would have. But, this time ~ no way. I am going to shake off the dust and carry on. THAT is what I've learned this time around and, also, what will make the difference. (I hope )
Also, today, being a holiday, the swimming pool is closed. And, tomorrow I am having over-night company. So, that puts a crimp in my exercise program for a couple of days. Which irritates me. But, I am going to plan and, somehow, find alternative things to do for exercise. Today, I will probably do aerobic dance ~ and tomorrow we'll see. I will come up with something.
At the end of this week, I will see how much damage I have done . . . and go from there. This week, I will do my best to stick to plan, both food and exercise. And ~ keep my fingers crossed.
