Didn't sleep well last night. Didn't get to sleep till almost 6 AM and was woken up by my parents, whom I live with currently, cooking breakfast. I didn't get up and eat any cause it was all covered in butter and oils but man did it smell delicious. I went back to bed though and was woken up at noon to go bowling.
Didn't have time to eat really anything so I ate a banana and a pouch of breakfast on the go. I bowled with my mom while my dad and girlfriend spectated. We were there for quite a while so when we finished, they wanted to buy lunch/dinner there. Unfortunately, it's a bowling alley with bowling alley food. Burgers, fries, chicken strips, nachos, corn dogs, and the like. I have been trying my hardest to say away from fattening foods, but they wouldn't let me get away with not ordering something.
I got a single patty burger(without cheese, as much as I wanted it) with waffle fries. I ate it, all. And to be completely honest, I don't feel too guilty about it. Why beat myself up over it? Instead, I kept reminding myself that I didn't get all of this fat off of eating one burger and some fries. What I used to do when I was trying to lose weight in the past was I would beat myself up and get negative if I ate something I wasn't supposed to. I have learned that doing that only causes me to feel guilty and then quit because I think if I eat one bad thing then I can't keep going. Not anymore.
Yes, I ate a bad meal, but tomorrow is a new day. I did not eat anything else bad the rest of the day either. If I slip up and eat something bad, I am not going to insult myself or feel down about it. I am going to remind myself that I am human and sometimes you just can't help a craving. The best thing to do though is just keep going forward and not let the cravings overwhelm you or bring you down if you give in. I am still going to keep going strong! One burger and some fries are not going to get me down!
