Why do I make such horrible food choices? This morning - a 580 calorie Honey Bun. And for lunch - 660 calories worth of garbage at Burger King!! So I have a maximum of 310 calories left for the entire day. UGH!!
I rationalized those purchases (can't believe I paid MONEY for that junk!)!! I made it okay in my head to eat that bad food. and consciously made the choice to eat badly. Now I feel like the junk I put into my body and what's worse is that it didn't even taste that good! The honey bun was so-so, the fries were not very good and the burger had way too much ketchup and mayo on it. I feel ashamed and guilty.
But I will not let this setback defeat me! Every choice is up to me. Every bite I take for the rest of the day can be nourishing and healthy. And so it shall be. I will forgive myself and move forward. I will make good choices for the rest of the day. If I'm a little hungry tonight, so what! Salad with balsamic vinegar is going to be my dinner. And I will get out when I get home from work and take my walk like I've planned.
