Yesterday, I got in a great workout at the gym. Did 65 minutes including the cool down on the elliptical and did about 10 minutes of strength training.
Burned over 600 calories.
After the workout, my sister and I went to pick up our mom and she was hungry and wanted Chinese food. I knew it was a bad choice...I knew it would blow all the calories I worked off....yet I still gave in..no excuses..just the honest truth.
I'm not beating myself up. I know Chinese food is loaded with calories and fat. Yes, it was delicious but I don't think it was worth it. I put the food into the tracker & I knew it wouldn't be good but
HOLY COW! It was horrible. The GOOD news is that in my family, two people share one box. It's still bad but you have to find something good out of the situation.
NO more of that after working out. I don't work hard in the gym to just blow it.
Still, it's about progress, not perfection. Everyone has a bad day with nutrition so go ahead and confess...what did you cave into?
**I just also want to say this doesn't mean there isn't room for days to have things that aren't the healthiest. I just don't want to blow a huge portion of my calories on one meal, especially after a really great workout! I have to find the balance.
