Had a moment of weakness

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Alright, so today, I'm going strong, got my workout clothes ready to go and brought to work. I grab a few fruit. Than I realized as I got to work that I did not bring a lunch. I figured, that sucks since now I have to go run by Sprouts and get something to eat. Which it will just cut back in workout at work but I can still manage with a few minutes. Well needless to say I had to deposit my check to because direct deposit wasn't working. I was so hungry by the time I left that I pulled into one of my weakness places and ordered 2 burritos and chili cheese fries. Fortunately, I loved myself to stop eating at the Chili Cheese Fries and give the whole thing to a co-worker who was thankful because he was hungry.
So Instead of beating myself up over this little set back. I can learn from it. In this case, making sure I have my lunch so I'm not super duper hungry and that I have myself spaced out so everything is not so rushed. I could have deposited my check after work and still could have gone to the grocery store and workout. I feel very happy for myself from learning from this experience instead of looking at myself as a failure and giving up. Yay me! :D

    where ever you work find a subway. I bet there is one close. get a sub on wheat only. no cheese cant taste it anyways when its on there . mayo is ok if you gotta. get baked chips it will be a healthy lunch and better then the other. you can also log it because you can go to and they have there nutrition menu. anyways I do a lot of subway. also I like go to wendys sometimes and get a chicken with no frys just a chicken sandwich and a drink mustard only . there chili is ok too. they also have the nutrition menu for calories in there stuff. I like to go out and eat not gonna give that up and I can do that with finding a better choice. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon at giving some food away so you did not eat all that. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow! Great job giving away the Chili Cheese fries! Sometimes it seems my car just automatically goes to those old places. You are not a failure - we all have those times where we forget our lunch, get frazzled with time requirements. I keep a stash in my drawer at work - I have protein bars, almonds, dark chocolate squares, and a can of veggie soup - things to save me when I forget - or get tempted by the M&M's people have sitting out. Usually it works and I know exactly how many calories I am eating. That being said - I still have those days where I just want to eat something that isn't perfectly healthy - but I make sure to track it for what it is.

You did an awesome job!!!! Better yet, you didn't quit. Way to go!
