bad day! But it is tracked and forgotten.
Sunday, October 28, 2012
So, isn't it amazing that you can abuse your body for years, feed it poorly and not care a bit about what you shovel in your mouth? Then you start tracking and you watch everything you eat and if you have a bad couple of hours, you are ready to throw in the towel? So bizarre.
So this week has been odd. I ate good six out of seven days. I only worked out 3 times but instead of focusing on the good that I have done....I am focusing on the bad of my one afternoon. Why? It seems so silly.
So yesterday I went and ran errands with my daughter. I went out to donate more books to the library. I brought magazines to the local recycling center at school. I went to target to buy a couple of thing that my daughter needed for school. I felt really good about all the positives that I had accomplished. Then.... I went out to lunch. I knew what i was getting when i got there. A chicken avocado salad. It is served on a taco shell, but I only usually have a bite of it. I did not eat breakfast. mistake one. Warm tortilla chips came out. Yum with fresh salsa. I ate them. Yum. Then Fried chicken wings. I never never eat those, but the skin was so crunchy... I ate two little drumsticks. Then my salad came out. Dang, they gave me a chic ceaser salad. Yuck. They made me a new one. I feel like such a pig for eating those wings and chips.... Next I went to a 55th birthday party. 2 glasses of wine, a hotdog and cup of mac salad. Feeling like such a piggie. I get home. A half a cup of potato sticks, 3 oreo cookies, 2 chocolate covered strawberries. Off to bed. I am out of control. I did this two days before a weigh in. WTH Talk about self destruction. I am imagining that i had thousands of calories. 2955 because I tracked it!
Wait a minute. I tracked it? Yes. Now I have forgiven myself for eaten poorly and when I woke up this morning do you know what it was? A new day. Today I went out for lunch and had a spinach pecan salad. I am right back to eating healthy and I am hoping that tomorrow I will still see a weight loss on the scale, but I am doing this! One day at a time.
I am not proud of my piggy escapade but I am proud that today was a new day and that I tracked everything I did yesterday. I could have easily have imagined that it was a 6000 calorie day and it was half of that!
