One step forward....

Monday, December 07, 2009

One step back. I took a little road trip to Chicago this weekend. We went on an architecture tour, saw a play, and saw an exhibit at the Art Institute. We didn't have any fine dining experiences, just road food and quick sandwiches. And that was my downfall. It's so hard to eat healthy on the road! I had a tuna sandwich (full of fat), french fries, and a chocolate chip cookie (in my box lunch for the tour.) Not a vegetable in sight. Sigh. Now I really have to get back on the wagon. I'm eating a whole bag of frozen vegies for lunch today, plus some string cheese for protein. Goal: No sweets or junk food all week.

    All that matters is the bigger picture...and also what you learned along the way :)... plus you should celebrate that you are in a much stronger position than you were a few months ago... not only have you set goals to regroup but you know you can and will stick to them...well done that's amazing! you are doing SO well!

    Good Goal for the week!

    I know you're hearing in the back of your head "I should have brought along a little baggie of carrots" or some such common sense but the truth is Life happens. It isn't always possible to eat as healthy as we'd like. You have been excellent about getting right back at it when you take one step back. And that's what real life is all about.
