My First Bump...

Sunday, August 11, 2013

So after a month, it happened. My first bump in the road. I pretty much crashed and burned Friday and Saturday. Ice cream. Pizza. Fried food. Soda. Dessert.

Here's the difference. I know that I didn't eat enough to put back on the five pounds I lost. I'm human. I made a mistake. A couple of them. But I'm not beating myself up and giving up.

Before Sparking, I would have never posted about my failures. I would have just disappeared quietly. But I am putting myself out here. People care about me and I them.

So I'm headed for the gym. A salad for lunch. Baked fish and veggies for dinner.

I'm back on track.

    Nobody stays on track without occasional fits and starts, without straying, without - sooner or later - a binge, a splurge, a complete off-the-rails. It's what you do after that matters, and you did the right thing: you get up, you dust yourself off, you go back to what you know is best for you.

    Go, girl - you done good!!!

    I overate this weekend too, so I feel ya. If you were good the rest of the week though, there's no way you couldv'e eaten enough in one day to undo all your progress. So chin up and knuckle down! Tomorrow's another day.

    I had a set back today. Went way over the calories. But I know what I did and will get back on track and I know you can to.

    Keep up the good work. Don't let one bad day get you down.

    Welcome to the Club! You have just had the epiphany. You had a bad day. Its not a disaster and tomorrow, you start making healthy choices.

    You got it. Fall down and hop right back up again. ;)

    P.S. Bob Harper recommends that we eat out one day a week...

    As long as we keep on trying, we have not failed. It takes courage to admit mistakes. Sounds like you are getting right back on track. emoticon emoticon

    Failure is temporary, giving up is permanent!!! emoticon

    It does NOT matter that you fell, what matters is how you GET UP!! emoticon
