Minor setback

Monday, March 24, 2008

Okay STOP! Take a deep breath...hold it...let it out...repeat.

Let's just say that the past few days have not been super "clean"...besides the usual holiday temptations...chocolate and wine...I've had a few too many drinks and cheats. I'm not in a full-fledged panic about this as as least I have not stopped exercising....I'm still getting all of my workouts in.

I attribute this mini setback from stress and being tired. When the two are blended, I'm too sidetracked with worry and therefore I don't plan well or skip a snack which leads to me being too hungry and making a hasty, and sometimes poor, choice. And being tired makes me crave carbs and sugar.

Rather than wallow in guilt, I choose to move on. I can't go back and undo the cheeseburger but I can learn that sometimes I will slip and that it's not the end of the's part of the journey. Guilt is a waste of energy so I'm going to make myself a cup of tea and plan the rest of my week...I'm craving clean!
