One Bad Day Does Not a Failure Make
Thursday, September 30, 2010
I didn't work out at all today. I didn't even clean. I've caught the cold from hell. Last night, I spent most of the night coughing. So aside from feeling drained, I was also exhausted from lack of sleep. I was supposed to go to the zoo with a friend and her kids, but I just needed to rest. So it's been a less than productive day.
However, I HAVE tried to make sure to keep up my end of the bargain when it comes to eating. I had a small bowl of Cheerios for breakfast, along with half a banana. For lunch, I had a chicken sandwich and ignored my kids fries and nuggets. For a snack, I've been having some mixed nuts. And my drink of choice (aside from the Nyquil) has been Powerade. Dinner will be crock-pot pork chops and potatoes. So I think I should be well within the calorie requirement for the day.
I'm not looking forward to weigh in tomorrow. I know that my weakness over the weekend and the beginning of the week is going to show on the scale. But I will come back with a vengeance and lose even more the following week. I've been successfully ignoring the cake. And I'm hoping that with a good night's sleep (thanks to the Nyquil), tomorrow I should be able to jump right back on the exercise wagon. And Saturday will be a day filled with walking, since we're going to the Celebration of Cultures and that means a lot of moving around.
Tomorrow is another day. And that's what I need to keep remembering. It's always a new chance to get back on track.
