You know that feeling when you are entering in all the food that you ate at the end of the day (because you were too busy to do it throughout the day) and you just know you ate too many calories? That is how I have felt the past couple of days. I just knew that I overdid it when I entered in the food that I ate on Thursday. I actually cringed while entering it in. I was bad. I lost that one. However, it was not as bad as I thought. Sure I gave in to that Krispy Creme donut. I'm alright with that. And I also needed some caffeine to get me through the day, so I did drink a coke. I'm alright with that too. Not as bad as I thought. I was also so tired that I fell asleep as soon as I ate dinner after work. So I didn't workout either. Gag me.
I told myself I would do better on Friday and I absolutely did. My coworkers go out to eat on Fridays for lunch and I had to go with them because we had a group meeting afterwards. I ate Tumbleweed (great place) and I ordered off the kids menu (smaller portions = smaller calories). Kids menus are cheaper and they are more likely to be the correct portion size. Instead of fries, I got rice and a little cheese quesadilla. It wasn't bad and I was filled up until dinner! I also ate a grilled chicken sandwich and fruit for dinner. All in all, I did wonderful.
So I am telling myself (and anyone else who wants to read this) to not sweat the bad days. Yes I did make some bad choices Thursday, but let me be real. I am a REAL person who makes REAL mistakes. I am trying to make a REAL lifestyle change and I am just beginning. Of course I am going to mess up, just like everyone else. You win some, you lose some. I just got back on track the next day and worked my butt off in the gym today. I can still do this. Don't sweat it.
