Can I practice what I preach?

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Well, yesterday wasn't as good an eating day as I had hoped. I hit Mcdonalds for lunch because I was out running errands and was really hungry. Then I had some ( 4 I think) fresh baked cookies my sister made. I sampled her homemade dip with a few taco chips and dinner was a huge grilled steak and a salad. Now even though that is not great there are good points. At Mcdonalds I only bought a small regular hamburger and a small fries, I only had 4 cookies, and oops forgot, a soft pretzel, only had a couple of teaspoons of the dip and about 5 chips ( luckily they were stale, lol) and I did eat my salad and steak. Here is the deal. Usually I would be crucifying myself over this. OMG! look at all I ate yesterday, but I still lost 3 pounds this week and I am back on the horse this morning. I feel pretty good about the weight loss and I feel pretty good about not eating all the cookies, chips, pretzels, a quarter pounder , a supersized fry and about stopping after dinner. So no matter what I ate yesterday, all in all it has been a good week and it shows.
Can I practice the self love I wrote about yesterday? Yep, so far so good.
Stay loving

    I've adopted the attitude that on those days where I don't do so well, it's enough to be better than I used to be. And that's exactly what you did! We don't have to do "perfect"-- just "better". GO YOU!
