The Added Benefit of Knowing You Are Doing Well
Sunday, September 29, 2013
My 5K training first week is complete. I've been making me goal of steps on a regular basis, I've been eating incredibly healthy, and it is all showing in the mirror and on the scale.
So this weekend my friend had a bonfire. I ate healthy before I left for the event. I prepared myself - knowing full well that she was hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and dip, and macaroni and cheese heaven. And I ate. And I enjoyed myself. And then I ate some more.
I came home today. I ate healthy. I was back on that treadmill. I cleaned the aparment. I made dinner. I made extra food to keep and eat all week. I have my life under control. I choose to not even acknowledge last night as a setback of any kind. I wanted the creature comforts of good cooking at a bonfire. I wanted to participate fully in the event. One night does not have to be a down fall. One night is just one night... especially when you know you have been doing well on all of the nights surrounding this.
I'm excited to weigh myself tomorrow morning.
