Venting then Moving On

Sunday, January 18, 2009

I was doing great this week...eating well, staying within my desired caloric range, running 30 mins/day...and today I fell off the nutrition wagon. It all started to crumble when I split a scone with my husband...a scone! And I know how terrible those are for you! Argh! Then, instead of wanting to cook dinner, we bought a frozen pizza...for cryin' out loud, I'm so mad at myself. To top it all off, I made myself a shake (ice, milk, banana, PB) for a snack after dinner. The shake is a good meal replacement, not a good snack. Now I'm over my desired caloric intake and at the high end of the other nutrient ranges (fat, carbs). I did do my 30 minutes of running as usual, but that doesn't make up for the fact that I ate like crap today.
I have two choices: I can sit here and obsess about my bad choices today or I can move on. Everyone has bad days right? Tomorrow is Monday and the start of a new week and a new opportunity to keep eating right, exercising everyday, and making good choices.

    Always remember that no one is perfect. They say it takes much longer to break old habits than to make new ones. For awhile you will struggle with choices. One bad day cannot take you off track. One bad day cannot even make you gain weight!
    I think we get into a habit of beating ourselves up after taking a slight dip in our progress. We are human and are bound to fall short of perfection.
    I think the fact that you are running everyday is awesome! You are on the right track. Go easy on yourself!
    Best of luck to you! emoticon
