Truth and Consequences
Monday, December 31, 2012
The truth is, I binged. I binged to the tune of almost 6000 calories. I took my eyes off of the goal and focused on the negative. This led to my descision to use my self pity as an excuse to eat myself silly. The consequence is the appearance of 3.6 pounds on the scale.
I also sacrificed a week's worth of progress.
More truth......This was ONE DAY
24 hours of my life.
I got on my spark team and held myself accountable to my friends and they received me with love and support. I spent the next day taking care of myself physically and emotionally. Today, I looked at my monthly calendar. And here is where the rubber meets the road.
I completed 23 of 26 workouts including a virtual 5 K. 88.5 % successful
I stayed within my calorie range 23 out of 31 days. 75% successful
I drank at least 8 glasses of water 28 out of 31 days. 90% successful
I ate my freggies 27 out of 31 days. 87% successful
So on and so forth.....................
The theme here being, overall, I am about 86% successful in meeting my goals for the month. That gives me a B+ grade for the month. The lesson learned is that one bad day does not break up everything I have accomplished. I have proven to myself that I have the ability to be successful in the goals I have set for myself. The difference between success and failure being wether or not I give up.
Moving on and moving up!
