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.
