I did not track my food yesterday and I think that mentally I was taking advantage of that. I had cereal for breakfast, and then for dinner I was a facilitator for a community meeting as part of some research I am doing. My professor and I went to this great Thai place, and got some amazing food, and I had hiked earlier and so I just ate. I was so hungry, and I was with a bunch of big dudes who were eating a lot, and I just ate what I wanted. It was so yummy, and then I noticed one of my colleges was not going back for seconds or thirds like I was. He has been doing insanity, and looks amazing. He was so strong, and I realized after I had eaten so much I was disappointed. Somehow in my head, I thought since I messed up for dinner, I can have dessert, so I went to the store and got a cookie and milk for my boyfriend to share. That mentality is usually what breaks me. It is the all or nothing, and then when I mess up, the gig is up and I eat whatever I want. In those moments, I really appreciate breathing, and realigning myself with my goals. So today I am realigning myself with my goals of continuing to work out and eat healthy while tracking what I eat, and accept that sometimes I am going to slip up- and THAT IS OK!
