Back to Reality
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
Well hubby and I are finally back from our anniversary weekend. Let me tell you - we had a ton of great fun and relaxation. But I must say my nutritional goals were toast. I think out of 4 days I only stayed within my range one day! So a little R&R included lots of dining at our favorite restaurants and some delicious desserts. Luckily I was able to really get some good outdoor exercise but still, it wasn't enough. My caloric differential was all positives (except for that one day). But in a way it was worth it. My husband and I reconnected and relaxed with one another - and we had more than 1 night to accomplish this. It was nice to really have a chance to enjoy each other's company again!
And I learned this: life happens; and I should enjoy all of it. The reality is that I will not be able to always stay within my range. The lesson is that just because I went over one day, two days or even 5 days - I will log every morsel in and when I can I will jump right back on the wagon again! That way I won't lose too much ground and I know I can get back on track much more easily than if I gave up and had to start over from step one again.
