good news/bad news

I have had a cold since the weekend, and for the past 2 days it has really drained me. I swear I keep hearing my mother's voice in my ear,"Starve a fever, feed a cold..." It's weird how your mind will play tricks like that trying to get you to take off the brakes and go eat a lot.
I haven't done great on my food plan but I haven't done terrible. We had a med supply rep at our office today doing a demo, and he had brought Panera bagels and several kinds of cream cheese. (Evidently he know how nurses eat) He offered it to me several times but I didn't eat any and I'm going to go ahead and be proud of myself for that. I knew that as crappy as I was feeling, once I started eating to feel better I would keep on eating, and eating, and eating...
He put the leftover bag of bagels in the break room where we eat lunch, and I stil avoided it, plus the OPENED box of Girl Scout cookies someone left on the table. So that was good.
But at the end of the day when I went home I made spaghetti for dinner with turkey Italian sausage, and if I had measured my portion, that would have been good, and if I had made a salad to go with it, that would have been better, but I just ate a good sized plate of spaghetti and then some seconds.
The stupid cold has me feeling too tired and depressed to exercise much. I did some yoga yesterday, trying to unstuff my head and clear my breathing.
I'm not going to beat myself up for yesterday. Just going to keep going today.

    One day at a time. That's all you can do. And you're right to just forget yesterday. Ya can't change it, and stressing about it causes cortisol production and midsection fat retention, so worrying about yesterday will just wreck today.

    So tomorrow, have your game plan ready.
