It was one of those days -- I was doing great and then suddenly, WHAM! I was at work and starving. I had an apple and it didn't help. I ordered a sandwich and that took the edge off. I knew it was going to blow my calories sky high but I didn't care. I worked out more than double what I had set as a goal for the week and knew that one bad day wasn't going to blow my progress.
Had I stopped there I would have been fine. However, I got home from work and was hungry as always. I had my usual 2 cups of veggies and should have quit there. But there was frozen greek yogurt in the freezer calling my name. Did I stop at one? Oh no!!
I am putting this day in the "lesson learned" column. I talked it over with my supportive person and he agreed with me -- that I don't so much fall off the wagon as jump off it intentionally every few weeks. Long term, I guess that's how we all actually live. There are holidays, celebrations or events that call for a little indulgence.
I'm not going to kick myself or feel badly. I'm going to wake up in the morning and start again -- and I will be starting over again and again for a very long time.
