I get stressed a lot. There, I said it. I was so overwhelmed this week I seriously ate at Wendy's 3 out of the 5 weekdays this week. And I only made semi-good decisions (small fry instead of the Biggie I wanted to stuff in my face with two hands). Stress is where I totally fall apart every time. Today at lunch, I didn't bring my lunch in yet again, and I was debating getting into my car and getting Wendy's (for the 4th time....GROSS right?) and I instead walked across the street from work and got a Greek salad and dessert. I always give myself a pass when I make the bad choices because it's "only" a few days and then "I'll get through it." Yeah right, who am I kidding! The only thing that will change about my stress is the level - I've pretty much given up on the elusive stress-free day. But, it doesn't mean I can't HANDLE the stress better. Seriously, giving myself a pass has always led to my downfall. So this time, I am OWNING UP. Yes, I sucked for the last two weeks. There's no pretty way of saying it. The only thing I can do is make better choices TODAY, RIGHT NOW and not make excuses for why I did a bad job before.
So today, I made a better choice, and eventually, all my "todays" will add up to a nice long streak of healthy eating.
