So yesterday I started my morning thinking I wanted a Spicy Chicken Biscuit from Chic-Fil-A (yuuummmmmm). I told myself if I had that then I was going to need to compensate by eating better the rest of the day. I knew I needed to, but...
You know those commercials that show if you start by making one unhealthy choice it feeds the rest of your choices throughout the day (and then it shows the healthy choice person on the other side going on with all the goodness)? Yeah....I'm the living, breathing heavily testament to that. I went onto make other 'not so good' choices for the rest of the day and really did nothing on the workout side either. My day of gluttony if you will. I didn't necessarily plan on it becoming that, but as long as I can keep it from rolling on any further, I am going to forgive myself and move on.
This morning I woke up feeling different than I did yesterday morning. Yesterday I was proud of what I accomplished on Monday (maybe I felt like I earned 'the biscuit that started it all'). Today I'm feeling a little down about my choices, so remembering the distinction will keep me focused on my goal of making better choices today. I had a good breakfast, am making my new favorite recipe (crustless spinach and feta quiche found in the recipes section in case you're wondering - YUM!) for lunch, have pork chops and salad on deck for dinner, and I'm heading to the gym for a class I have yet to try (barbell strength - oh dear!).
It's not a disaster, but definitely worth remembering should that biscuit come calling again!
