Day 2 - Learn as I Go

Monday, October 08, 2012

Ok, lesson learned. So today, well, let's say it didn't go as planned. My alarm for work did not go off as I reset the clock after a power outage, but hence forgot to reset the alarm and went to bed a tired pup and used to my normal routine, did not bother to check the lil switch for the alarm. So....I got a lucky day home, you see, in my line of work (seditary, line of work)...BUS Operator for a transit agency, well one second late, and your done for the day. So there is the first lil problem....

Ok, so have the day off, I can eat well, and excersice, and relax a bit or two. Great breakfest I had I tell you, lunch...don't ASK. Ok, here it goes, spilling the beans.....
Hubby and I decided to eat at Wendy's, what a smart man I am married to, he eats a salad, and I do....wait for it, wait for it.....jr. cheese burger deluxe, small fries, and a frosty (which I only ate half of) OH (THANK GOD), came home feeling full, I wonder why. Logged in my meal onto sparkpeople, WHOLY CRAP! 800 calories for what I just consumed! You know what that means?? Dinner is a salad!! With no dressing! ha ......That will be the last time Wendy's get's my money! Lesson learned thank you!!

Now I am home, and well, feeling ya, guilty, and so I decided to dust the treadmill some more! Yee haw...which reminds me, I must find some better workout music to listen too. So I am not feeling as bad as when I originally entered that awful information, but I am still sticking to a salad! emoticon
The water issue, that's going great today, concerned while at work, but going to make the best of it, emoticon

So live and learn I say and will do, hopefully everyone else is doing the same and having a great week! Thanks for letting me vent and maybe someone else won't make that poor decision.

    Don't feel guilty! You learned a lesson, and you ate half of what you originally ordered. And on top of that, you adjusted your next meal to accommodate the higher-than-planned amount of calories. That is fabulous!
Keep it up!

    Thanks so much, and your right, I need to pick one thing, and I am proud of my excercise today. BUT am amazed at how many calories were in what I ate, Blew my mind, no wonder we are the way we are. Thanks again!! emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up! LOL! You are like the rest of us! We set high standards, then screw it up! Progress, not perfection!
Take it slow at first... SP is a real lifestyle change. We didn't get where we are over night, and we will not become totally new people overnight. It is one day, one step, one moment at a time. Pick one thing you think you can accomplish, and do it. Build on that.
Have you read The Spark? It helped me get off to a really good, solid start.
WTG on your blog!
