I fell down but I got back up
Monday, March 25, 2013
For the last week, I've only been on SP a couple of times. I took a mini-vacation from the healthy lifestyle changes I've been making.
These are the bad choices I made:
I ate at In-n-Out Burger. Twice.
I ate at Chick-Fil-A. Twice.
I ate breaded chicken strips and onion rings and homemade potato chips.
I didn't track my food.
I didn't work out.
I didn't get to 10K steps per day.
These are the good choices I made:
I didn't drink any cokes. (I bought one root beer but I took a sip and decided I didn't really want to go down that road so I threw it away).
I did watch my carb intake on the days that I didn't east fast food.
I kept drinking all of my water.
I stayed away from sugar and sweets.
The good news?
My weight stayed the same.
I started C25K today and I think I now know what people mean when they talk about a runner's high. I feel incredible.
The best news?
The best news is that I chose to come back. I didn't say "well, that's 3 months down the drain" and eat my weight in brownies. I. CAME. BACK. I am here. I don't have to be perfect all the time. There are bumps in the road. Knowing that I can fall down and get back up (instead of laying there wallowing in misery) is a HUGE deal for me. One day at a time. Today, I choose to be healthy.
