So Frustrated With Myself!

Monday, August 26, 2013

Why do I make such horrible food choices? This morning - a 580 calorie Honey Bun. And for lunch - 660 calories worth of garbage at Burger King!! So I have a maximum of 310 calories left for the entire day. UGH!!

I rationalized those purchases (can't believe I paid MONEY for that junk!)!! I made it okay in my head to eat that bad food. and consciously made the choice to eat badly. Now I feel like the junk I put into my body and what's worse is that it didn't even taste that good! The honey bun was so-so, the fries were not very good and the burger had way too much ketchup and mayo on it. I feel ashamed and guilty.

But I will not let this setback defeat me! Every choice is up to me. Every bite I take for the rest of the day can be nourishing and healthy. And so it shall be. I will forgive myself and move forward. I will make good choices for the rest of the day. If I'm a little hungry tonight, so what! Salad with balsamic vinegar is going to be my dinner. And I will get out when I get home from work and take my walk like I've planned.

    You know, we all have those days. Don't beat yourself up because you know the right things to do and you don't like feeling bad so you go right back to making the right choices and those bad meals are in the rearview mirror. Take care and cut yourself some slack. You CAN do this!

    I know the feeling. I'm a bagel and scone junkie. Just remember those less than satisfactory tastes and awful feeling afterward and you'll be hard pressed to go back to those foods.
