Because of a minor mishap, I missed my kettlebell class this morning. But to salvage a perfectly good exercise day, DH and I walked at the Y and did some machines. Not exactly workouts compared to doing kettlebells , but it was okay in a pinch.
Another mishap of my own making happened yesterday. At a baby shower/party, I got out of hand on my eating. Up until then it was a good clean calorie range day.
But I arrived hungry. Really hungry. Big mistake. And cause for a 'mishap waiting to happen'. Some chips and dips started the whole thing...then on to too many other non-guilt-free foods. No need to name them because everybody knows already.
I was self-talking on my usual guilt-trip. But somehow I came to my senses and reasoned that I did not have to continue this binge --- as so often has happened (especially before SparkPeople). I drew a big circle around that part in my journal and wrote, “Off Day. New Day Tomorrow.”
I went back to my nutrition tracking this morning as if nothing had happened... but not before the scale, yes, I dared to face my maker...glowered that a horrible mishap had indeed happened. Up 2 pounds!
Hmm. Mishaps are going to happen---be assured. But when they do, like missing the kettlebell class or succumbing to temptation at a party, it doesn't have to be fatal to a plan or program in the grand scheme of things.
My goal remains the same. To continue on my health and fitness journey, no matter how many mishaps along the way.
And so can I!
