A Day Of Successful Calorie Overages Where I Won!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

When I started sparkpeople and tracked my nutrition I would have a melt down when I went over my calorie count. Then I would have a food fest and triple my calories feeling guilty afterwards. It was such a vicious circle, but the cycle has been broken! Today I went over by 100 calories, the first time since December. I didn't have a melt down. I didn't throw a food party and I didn't feel one shred of guilt. Instead I gave myself permission to and I told self it was ok. It feels so good to finally break the cycle of guilt, self loathing and hate. I know tomorrow the horse will be waiting and I'll get in the saddle and ride off into a day filled with healthy eating and calorie balances.

    You are doing great! One day of eating a bit too much isn't going to hurt your progress, especially since you are back in the saddle again!

    Yay for you! Don't get so down when you're not successful today, there's still tomorrow for you to improve even if just a little bit :D
