Today was a trying day, and I found myself having a pity party....I don't often do that, but I have my problems, just like everyone else. While in the midst of this self-induced crisis, I found out how destructive this type of behavior could be....this happened while making my salad for lunch. I caught myself starting to loosen my self control and stopped midstream. I thought immediately of the effort I put forth in spin class this morning and snapped out of the mental funk. I realized that hard work was too important to make meaningless by slipping up with food....that's a huge thing for me and reinforces how far I've come since November, when I would have just rolled with it and given myself permission to ignore counting and tracking my calorie intake.
