So I partied hearty for the 4th of July. I couldn't even finish my nutrition tracker because I ate and drank so mindlessly. I am not going to let this get me down! Yes I went over on calories. I also went on a run this morning and spent a long time in the pool today.
I recognize that in order to be successful in losing weight I need to view this as a life style change and not a diet. I have completely changed my lifestyle! I log my calories every day, have become a running addict, and am now adding strength training through the wii fit. I won't let my lifestyle stop me from living. If it is a holiday, and I have been on track for weeks, I will let my hair down and not obsess for a day. The old Bean (what I call myself) would have let my eating today get me down and continue to eat like that for the rest of the week. This bean will be right back on track tomorrow. I doubt I gained half a pound, and even if I did, it will be gone in a week and I will still be 20 pounds lighter than when I started.
I will continue to get healthier.
