Was doing so good...until KFC...

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Ok, so on Saturday (yesterday) I had a really good day. I had my Zumba class in the morning and burned a lot of cals and then me and my daughter went for a walk..we only did 1 mile as we both weren't feeling it and it was pretty chilly out..we both weren't dressed for it and too lazy to go back for something warmer :)

Then, when I weighed myself this morning I was down 2 lbs, but my brother and his family came up to visit us this weekend and I knew my mom & dad planned on having KFC for lunch and I checked the calories..I just think I didn't think I would have biscuits and I had 2! I really didn't plan to have them, but when mom handed me one I just took it ugh! I, also, had some ice cream..I did pass on the chocolate covered stuff everyone else I had looked at the calorie intake beforehand and knew I couldn't afford it calorie-wise!

I haven't worked out yet today..didn't have time this morning and then the day just slipped away from me, but I think if I can squeeze something in will make me feel better about eating all those calories today. I really tried to not eat much...I know I shouldn't beat myself up over this..but the scale went down and I told myself that I wouldn't overeat today!

I need to re-focus and just try my best to work out every day...even if just for 15-20 minutes..or I guess even if if is only for TEN minutes! At least it is something right? But I really try to stay in my heart rate zone for at least 20 minutes each time I work out.

Ok...Tomorrow is a new day. I just needed to post this here, so that I can make myself accountable for what I ate today. I feel if I do this, then it will help me move on to tomorrow.

Here's to a new day tomorrow! emoticon

    If the KFC seems to have affected your weight, it's probably water retention due to the sodium - drink extra water and it will disappear quickly -

    Remember the 80/20 rule (on plan 80% of the time, off 20%) - these occasions will continue to crop up and if you deprive yourself of the fellowship and relationships by not sharing the food, you will likely end up worse off -

    Keep your eyes on the prize and keep on keeping on! emoticon

    Thank you ladies for the support! Oh, Judith...I never eat the skin on any meat. I, always, take it off before I eat it! I try to tell my daughter and mom, but everyone loves the taste of it LOL..I just know better so I don't even bother with it LOL...

    GZELLEFRO is right - this is a lifetime journey and a little slip up is not worth beating ourselves up about!! recognise the mistake and move on - onwards and upwards! :) Congrats on the weight loss!! :)

    Next time, just at least take off the skin from the chicken and that will save you some fat calories at least. My downfall is their cole slaw! LOL

    Hang in there!

    You're right. We all slip up sometimes. And if this is for a lifetime, what's a little slip up every once in awhile. It's a little blip on the radar of life. So keep going and have a great day tomorrow! emoticon

    You have the right attitude, tomorrow is a new day. We all fall down some days, but as long as we recognize it, don't beat ourselves up too bad and try, try again. We will succeed.
