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! emoticon

    Why to turn it around and I have a bad habit, if I eat one bad meal to finish the day out with a bad meal. We can control it. Good Job.

    Thanks for sharing your story. We all end up in this kind of situation at times and you do the best that you can do in the moment. I think as long as you track your food and don't pretend it didn't happen, things will work out. My doctors tell me all the time that nothing is off limits if you use control. And absolutely no negative self-talk or bashing allowed!! Keep up the good work...
