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.

    Thanks, all. I'm feeling quite a bit better today. I still am coughing, but at least I have a bit more energy!

    I hope you feel better soon. You have it right, that tomorrow is always another change to do it right. Never give up on yourself!

    I think its so much more important to rest and get well then force yourself to workout and get sicker- it'll only set you back! Good for you!
