Motivation Monday

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." - Thomas A. Edison

Sometimes my biggest cheerleader is also my worst influence.

We went out to eat twice this weekend and my loving husband just had to order the Fried Everything Appetizer Platter - both times. I'm human, I gave in and it was good.

So this morning when there was no milk for cereal and not a single egg to scramble in the house my trip to McDonalds could have ended in a value meal with a not-too-bad-but-not-good egg mcmuffin, a really-bad-for-me hash brown and a drink. Starting the week off very wrong.

Instead I left with a lone egg mcmuffin with no cheese.

I'm a salt craving cheese-a-holic - this was not an easy temptation to pass up.

One motivation is that my body is all screwed up today from the junk I put in it this weekend and I feel like crap. But if I make good choices today and into tomorrow and start using the exercise bike I bought over the weekend, eventually I will get back to feeling my best.

Let's hope I don't again forget the lesson I have had to learn over and over again.

    I love egg sandwiches and definitely feel your pain! Have you ever tried the egg white egg sandwich from Tim Hortons? I'm crazy for egg mcmuffins and I find the egg whites from tim hortons pretty comparable when I've got a craving!

    Good for you on the no cheese too! That was probably pretty difficult!

    So far I've also had some bad days on the weekend. I've been calling them my "black hole" days where I don't record any calories and try to eat healthier over the next few days to compensate. I feel your pain on that one!
