I overate today. And yesterday. And I didn't do any exercise either. And no, I'm not proud of it, but it's okay.
My surgery was two days ago and even though I tried to squeeze in some high intensity housework (yes, that counts as exercise) on the Thursday before I had to go to hospital, the painkillers I had to take yesterday and today meant it would have been irresponsible to go outside and exercise on my own. Of course that was no excuse to overeat, but I'm not going to beat myself up. Excuses are lame, but if there's a reason to relax the regime a little then surgery is certainly it.
I know it's undone a lot of the good work that I've done over the past few weeks, but it's okay, because I can fix it.
The good news is that tomorrow I can probably start doing some gentle exercise again, so I'll be taking the dog for a long walk. The doctor told me it would be fine to go running as soon as I'm ready, so I'm probably gonna wait until they take my cast off on Wednesday and go for it!
I'm nowhere near ready to give up on myself. Now or ever for that matter.
And a random fact: I felt like diet coke today, so I had some. I used to practically live off that stuff, but haven't had any for a long time and oh my goodness, did it taste strange. I don't drink regular soda because it's just too freaking sweet for me, but now even the diet version tastes like syrup. It's like my taste buds are finally getting back to normal, haha!
