Day 9 Slip sliding.....

Friday, August 02, 2013

So I blew it yesterday. I started my day with my green smoothie, then went to get lunch at work & decided that Salisbury steak & mashed potatoes sounded delish. Got home & it got worse from there. I won't go into the details, because frankly I'm embarrassed. No workout. Just sat around doing nothing, catching up on all my dvr'd shows.

This is where I would normally fade out & just go back to my unhealthy lifestyle. But I'm not going to go out that easy this time around. Baby steps......I have to remember I can't change everything about my eating habits overnight. In the past 8 days I've managed to go from drinking mt. dew all day everyday to having 1 & a half since last thursday. I'd say that is pretty good! I've traded either not eating breakfast at all or eating something very unhealthy to having a green smoothie each morning! See another plus!

So I'm not perfect. I've still got a long road a head & I want to make this a lifestyle change, not a temporary change to drop weight & then get back to my old way of eating. I'm not going to have all great days & yesterday was a not so great day, but that doesn't mean I should just give up. It just means I try harder today. emoticon

    You know, a lot of people schedule in cheat meals while they are in the weight loss process. Perhaps you can pencil last night as that?

    Regardless, it really sounds like you've got this! You've made an awesome change to start with by changing out the mt. dew. Overall, I think you are doing emoticon
