Oh wow, epic fail!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Okay so I got ready to do my workout about the time my Mom got home from work. Then, we decided since it was my last night in town we would go out to dinner to enjoy our time together. That wasn't a terrible idea until we opted for Mexican food. There is never any good can come from an endless basket of chips and salsa. Not to mention all the cheese, sour cream, and guacamole slathered on everything. Long story short I didn't workout and did overeat. So, I learn from it and move on.

I'll be eating out again tomorrow night, but I've already chosen the restaurant and planned my meal and calories accordingly. It was the impromptu dining out that got me in trouble tonight. Tomorrow will be the third night in a row of eating out the odds of me posting a loss this week are rapidly decreasing.

    Impromptu is fun, but it's also a scary place when you're used to planning! (Well, for me it is! :) ) Hopefully, you enjoyed the company with your mom. While it may have been an "epic fail" in the food and workout realm, it was also a very positive experience, as you only have so many moments to spend with those you love.

    You lost it once and you can do it again. You know how and with the motivation you will succeed! emoticon emoticon

  Guacamole and salsa are good things. Silver lining in this cloud.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. These things happen and you just do the best you can when ordering food. Still do everything else that you know you should do (exercise, water, etc.) and see how the week works out for you. Any loss or maintenance is a big win, a gain is a reminder of why you're doing this in the first place :)
