And yesterday sucked big time...

What a sucktastic day!
I had to be at work early (and 35 miles away) so I had no time to walk before work. I also needed to plan on being stuck in traffic, so I restricted my water intake.
Work itself wasn't particularly bad, but there was pastry available. Yup, I ate a mini bran muffin in the morning. I did okay for lunch--made myself a nice salad with beans, cukes, tomatoes, and a small amount of chicken breast and balsamic dressing. I was still limiting my water intake, however, because the only bathroom was so far away.
Towards the end of the day the rainstorms hit. And I knew how bad the remainder of my day would be.
Although the rain had stopped and the ground was dry when I left work (after I managed to justify eating two delicious cookies) at 3:30 pm, the damage had been done. I spent 3 hours and 10 minutes driving home. I was sincerely happy that I kept myself dehydrated all day or I would have never survived the trip. My legs were cramped, my rear ached and my head was throbbing when I got home.
I did not walk on the treadmill. I ate fast food for dinner. I drank only 6 glasses of water for the day. I blew my calorie range for the day.
Obviously, I realize that this has not destroyed what I have previously accomplished. I am just struck by how I let my choices become part of the bad things that occurred.

Bad day : over.
New day : begun.

    Holy Cow! What a bad day...driving MORE than 3 hours home from work????? I can't even imagine how you manage to find the strength. We all falter with our plans (food and exercise), but I admire your resolve to keep getting back and staying on track.

    I'm sorry to hear about your issue with leg cramps, though. I hope they can be much improved or even cured eventually with diet and exercise...is that being too optimistic?!

    Oh...I haven't any lentil recipes to share, I'm afraid, but I'd love to hear yours, if you make something wonderful...in the mean time, have you checked out 101cookbooks.com...she's got some ridiculously gorgeous and scrumptious recipes.

    I'm wishing you a beautiful, zen, relaxing as possible week...with lots of entertainment on your drives to and fro--work, that is. :-)

    I'm sorry you had a sucktastic day yesterday. You are already doing the single best thing you can do by putting it behind you and moving forward. I hope you have a fabulous day today!
