I need to vent about a motivation issue here. Yesterday, I came home, and my roommate / best friend was lying in bed kind of mopey and crying because he can't find a job. I know job hunting can be tough - I have been there. I know how depressing it can be. But holding his hand and having all my motivation stuff shot down by him was too much. I decided to have a frozen pizza for dinner (because I thought it would cheer him up, and because I was craving it too) and then he was still mopey, so we went out for ice cream. The pizza was bad enough, but survivable. And I should have gotten the 1-scoop cone instead of the 12 oz. custard. And to top it off, I didn't work out because the rich custard made my tummy hurt.
So, yes, I ventured way far off my track, away from my goals. But only for a day.
I decided that today I am back on the wagon. I don't have to make up yesterday food wise. It is in the past, and I am leaving it there as a minor setback. I will do two videos instead of one today and move forward.
This is part of my journey - I have to learn that not every day will be success, some will be failure, but perfection is not the goal, health and happiness are. Beating myself up about missteps won't lead to either.
Those are my thoughts for the day. I hope someone finds them helpful.
