Don't Break the Eggs!

Friday, January 11, 2013

I know many people get discouraged if they make a poor food choice during the day. In their minds, if they decide to have a donut vs. scrambled eggs at breakfast, the whole day is ruined (calorie-wise) so they might as well indulge the whole rest of the day. A great analogy my nutritionist gave me was this: If you go get eggs out of the fridge, drop one and it breaks all over the floor, do you then say, "Well, I dropped one, the whole carton is ruined, I may as well go break the rest of them." No, none of us would do that! So don't get discouraged with your food intake either! You don't have to "blow" the whole day. Just make the NEXT right choice.

    I agree! You need to start over at each meal, that's the way I look at it;)
