Well, I didn't exactly have the best eating habits this weekend. After going out to eat at Cracker Barrel on Saturday and having pizza, wings, and some birthday cake and ice cream for my mom yesterday (and I didn't do well with portion sizes either.....) I felt rather stuffed and heavy last night.
However, I will not beat myself up over this. I am still making progress towards being healthier and two days of being off of the "diet" is no big deal. I enjoyed my weekend very much (food and all!!) and that's that. If I let myself feel ashamed every time I didn't eat healthy I would never get anywhere. I would just end up getting bitter and angry. Now I will just make sure to eat right and maintain portion control for a while. It's as simple as that!
It's having this type of mind set that I really think is going to allow me to be truly successful in attaining my weight loss goals this time. All other times I tried to lose weight I would completely ban any "unhealthy" foods from my life and when I would slip up and eat them, I looked upon it as failure. And sure enough I would then just give up entirely. But now, I know that it is ok to just have days of eating whatever and however much I want. I just can't do that every day! And I am perfectly fine with that. It makes my weight loss journey all that much more enjoyable!
