I almost beat myself up today for not doing as well as I had wanted to do. I went to a basketball game with my husband, sister and nephew. My car broke down on the way and we were almost two hours from home. I was upset and disappointed about missing most the game because my nephew was bummed out. I had already decided I would let myself indulge a little for lunch/dinner because it was a late lunch early dinner and didn't think I would eat again. I calculated everything before I ate and only ate what I logged. Then at home I started to get hungry and had a granola bar at about 7. I almost started grazing on everythign in site because I was stressing about not having a perfect day, and then I reminded myself that had I not calculated at all today I would have had a terrible day. I would have ate scrambled eggs not egg whites and ten slices of bacon instead of two. I would have ate the cheddar bacon fries and about three rolls at Texas Roadhouse instead of a side salad and one roll. I would have also ate the entire meal instead of half. I made MANY good choices today and I am going to focus on that instead of that fact that I went over my goal a little. I saved A LOT of calories and fat compared to what a normal day out would have been AND I worked out too! When I started to beat myself up I instead played with my daughter and praised God (as I do everyday, all day) for giving her to me. I would say it was a good day.
