Yesterday's Disappointment is today's motivation!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Yesterday was a big disappointment. I did not plan my meals and snacks for the day, but I was confident that I could wing it and stay within my ranges. Boy, was I wrong! I had a really good breakfast. Lunch, however, was a different story. I went to Quizno's and got an oven-roasted turkey and cheddar sub. I had light mayo with lettuce and tomato. Sounds healthy, right! Wrong! When I went to the website to track my calories and such for the day, I quickly found out just how unhealthy it was. At lunch, 2 meals in, I had already began to max out for the day. So, by the time I added dinner and a snack, I was way outside of my ranges. I refused to starve myself because of this hiccup. I just made a vow that today would be a new day and another chance to get it right. I have had a good breakfast so far. My lunch will be a much better one today. Snacks will be on point, and dinner will be healthy as well.

    Don't feel too bad. You tried to do right. At least it was a sandwich you were eating. Like I had 3 servings of pasta some baked chicken and a chicken wrap today. Slim fast for breakfast. Whey protein and broccoli for snacks. I know I can do better too. I am going to fix me some veggies tomorrow and not carry my credit card on me. I tend to cave in to the food at work that way.

    I have done that many times. Thinking you're ordering something healthy then coming here to track it and finding out it isn't. I always do better when I plan my meals in advance. It's great that you aren't letting it ruin your efforts. Yesterday is in the past and doesn't matter anymore.

    You've got it right! Yesterday is gone, today is all that matters. Looks like you have it all planned out. Good for you! Stick to it!
