Today was one of those days for me. Started off well enough, but being with family, going to a rugby game with friends, going out to eat and having a couple of beers, the calories really add up.
The thing is, at least for me... This isn't a make or break moment. I know that for the week I still have a deficit, and while I might gain a few pounds due to water retention (chinese food and beer, salt and alcohol will do it), I'll also lose them in a few days when I even out.
I actually don't feel too bad about it- I had a great day, it was a ton of fun, and if I went over on my calories, so be it. Some days will be like that. So, I planned my meals for tomorrow, made sure to include a LOT of veggies and keep within my normal calorie range and do my spin class. This is life, and I cannot expect 'perfection' ever day. If I did, a day like today might make me feel guilty and throw in the towel, and I know I don't want to go *there*.
Best of luck (and way to go at making it 8 MONTHS without going over, that is amazing).
There are no elevators in the house of success.
