Oh I'll indulge just this once... twice... ten times!

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

Just because you had a 7 am meeting and everyone went out for breakfast after doesn't mean the calories in the hash browns don't count. Just because it's a Friday doesn't mean you can eat out for every meal. Just because the bagels are free doesn't mean you have to eat one (or two!). Just because you had a long run this morning doesn't mean you get to eat twice as many calories afterward. And just because there is leftover Chinese food doesn't mean you have to eat it all at once just to get rid of it! IT WILL catch up!

There are so many EXCUSES for me lately! I'm okay with going over on calories once in a while, but now staying IN my range has become the rare treat! BLEH! This really needs to get under control NOW. Not tomorrow, not next week, RIGHT THIS SECOND.

There is a work Christmas Party this weekend, for which I will indulge a little but that is IT. I will eat a huge egg white omelette that morning with spinach and a small potato. I will drink gallons and gallons of water. I will NOT drink. I will run my 5K the next morning as fast as I can, and afterward, I will have another HEALTHY breakfast. This Christmas party is the only thing in the near future that I can forsee myself "excusing" the diet for, but if anything else comes up... TOO BAD. Eat your apple, drink your water, and suck it up. NO EXCUSES.

    I know what you mean. I have six parties in the next week and a weekend away. Blah. At least you are exercising.
