I never would have thought that by just eating better and exercising that it would give me the courage to branch out into other ventures. I read an article the other day about a woman who designed T-shirts from her home. I looked up the website that she used and thought, "that's a nice idea...I wish I could do something like that." Now, I sat down and did it. I tried the basic (free) layout and decided that I would try the Premium layout instead. While I'm still not launched yet, I'm so excited to be setting everything up, and I've got tons of ideas already. I think my expectations are realistic, in that I don't expect to see any returns right away (hmmm, kind of like starting out on an exercise program, lol). But I think that if I can come up with some really great ideas that this could really get off the ground.
So, let's talk PROGRAM stuff! I totally didn't stick w/ my calorie plan today, and I'm okay with that. I was craving pizza, and we were working our butts off earlier to clean the house, so we ordered pizza. And of course I had to had a Coke with that. I would have been okay if I hadn't closed out my kitchen time with a hot chocolate w/ a bit of cream and fluff, lol. So, I went a bit over 1500 calories for the day. Being that I've been consistently under 1300 for the last 2 weeks, I'm okay. It didn't kill me or derail me. I acknowledged my cravings, I ate a few slices, and that was it. I didn't scarf the whole thing. And I've been wanting that cocoa for awhile, and it's like 13 degrees outside and I was feeling a lil chilly in the kitchen. The point is that eating off program happened and I didn't die. I went over about 250 calories. I'm going to have to work my rear end off on Monday, and that's okay.
I still have to do my strength training for the day, knowing full well that my triceps are going to be a screamin'. That's okay because they can cry as they head out the door, because "bye-bye" arms WILL BE VACATING in the near future.
So, for all my friends that read my blog; stay true to yourself. acknowledge your cravings so you don't end up scarfing a large pizza by yourself. And tell yourself that you will have to make up the calorie difference one way or another...okay, mostly by sweating for it.
