Learning to forgive one's self for small slip-ups, and moving on

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I had been doing really well and was super pumped from my 1 yr spark anniversary along with finding out that I was leading the yellow team for the spring challenge.... and then last night.... i got the munchies before eating out. I managed to confine it to lower calorie munchie stuff. I then ate two plates of food at the mongolian buffet (of which is super hard to track, so i didn't) but at least left the noodles out. I tried to make slightly healthier choices of ingredients, such as lean beef, tofu, and tons of veggies. Even so, I was beating my self up about it, as I suspect I probably went over in calories a lil bit. I just made a note of it on my nutrition page for yesterday and decided to move on. I am looking back at it and seeing what I did that was better than normal when that happens and focusing on that. I made better ingredient and food choices than normal. I am also trying to learn from the more negative parts and see how I can improve it next time. However, the biggest thing is forgiving myself for the small slip-up, and moving forward. :) I'm looking forward to a healthy eating day and putting in a good work out this evening when I get home from lab.

    I love your attitude about your situation. I admit I've been horrible, and haven't worked out for two days due to stress. Im focusing on the fact I can work out tonight, and end this trend of being too stressed to work out, and use it as an outlet. Your blog makes me feel like this is more possible :)
