My weekend off and why I'm ok with it.
Sunday, September 24, 2006
I'm actually reposting my resply to a thread on the message boards. I think it covers my feelings on the subject of "free anything" pretty well.
I don't normally "slack" on weekends, but I did this weekend and I refuse to feel guilty or bad because of it.
We had out of town company, which throws a spin into schedules as it is, but I knew they love to eat out and I knew that eating healthy wasn't going to be in the cards... So I went with it.
Generally I give myself either a free meal during the week or a free day, and it hasn't slowed me down, if anything it's made sticking to my new lifestyle, diet and exercise habits easier. I don't feel like I'm forever starving myself of ALL the things I used to love to eat and I know I always have that "free day or free meal" to look forward to.
So today I am back to it, after two days of unhealthy eating, and I am actually looking forward to getting back on track. I actually miss feeling good about what I've done and what I've had to eat in a day. I think it's almost made me appreciate more the lengths I am going to to get back to being healthy and in turn happy.
This isn't a rant, just an angle from my point of view.
