Had a slip, but not a fall.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Last night I had a slip up. My husband was gone for work, I was hungry, the kids were in bed. You know where this is going. I didn't have anything quick and easy in the fridge (we have gone through 2 HUGE pots of soup this week! My kids love it!). So I slipped and ordered a pizza. I got a roasted vegetable one that is supposed to serve 2 people (1,200) calories and a sprite (250 calories). I then proceeded to eat it ALL.

In the past having something like this happen would have set off a month long binge. After all I had already "ruined" my weight loss so why not? Not this time though. Nope. I slipped but I didn't fall. There is a big difference. I sucked it up and took responsibility for my actions. I logged it all and then compared my calories in versus my calories out on my fitbit. Yesterday I got 10,000 steps in so even with the pizza slip I was still -100 calories for the day.

Lessons learned:
*We need 3 pots of soup a week so that I always have something quick and easy to eat in the evenings if I get hungry once the kids are in bed.
*I am stronger then I give myself credit for. I can have a slip and still stay on my feet. I will not fall off the wagon every single time I make a poor decision.
*Today is a new day and a new chance. I can do this!

    You are so right that there is a big difference...good for you! My therapist calls this "you can crash, but you don't have to go up in flames" and you didn't. CONGRATULATIONS!

    You are right, you have to pick yourself up after a fall but that is the learning experience. I'm proud of you for not giving up!
