Holiday Weekend

Monday, December 03, 2012

I had a great holiday weekend in the U.A.E., celebrating their 41st National Day. I did not do great with my food choices but I also could have done worse. I spent 3 days in a hotel which makes it harder to eat better. I had a great time hanging out with friends, going to restaurants, and having a few drinks. I would normally beat myself up over this and then normally fall off the wagon and stay there, not this time. I made my choices, both healthy and unhealthy ones but the weekend is now over and I'm back on track.
I did bring granola bars with me and took apples from the front desk so my breakfasts were healthy. At some restaurants I ordered more healthy options when possible even though everyone around were ordering hamburgers, chili fries, fish & chips, etc... I did not order any desserts. I limited my alcohol and stuck to light beer, I tried to drink my water although did not drink enough. I am up on the scales but I am hopeful it will go back down quickly once I get back on track.
I need to stay positive with the fact that I will have bad days/weekends and even if I do it's not the end of the world. I will be going back to Newfoundland, Canada for the Christmas break and I know I will not be eating 100% healthy while there, but that doesn't mean I need to eat 100% badly or give up healthy eating completely. I am trying, and will continue.

    You definitely have the attitude that will lead to success! It's sometimes hard to remember that our goal should be PROGRESS and not PERFECTION but you seem to have a good understanding of that!

    You have the right attitude! None of us are perfect and you shouldn't expect yourself to be either. emoticon emoticon emoticon
