One step back, two steps FORWARD.

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I am slowly getting my eating back under control. I did pretty well yesterday, and then kept picking at dinner's leftovers as I was getting them packed up and put away. So, I ended up over my range yesterday. I know this, because I tracked it all! For the first time in quite a while, I tracked all my food for the day. So that's a small victory. Definitely a step in the right direction.

Today, we visited an arcade as Vanessa's early-birthday treat, and ate pizza at their restaurant. With a side of fries. I didn't do very well moderating my intake, sadly. My stomach hurts, having to deal with all that lovely grease! emoticon
So we got home from our outing, and just wanted to curl up and take a pathetic nap. I was sitting on the couch, wasting time on the internet, and decided I'd better go take a walk, before the day was a complete waste.

So I got my coat on and took off! I ended up doing 3 miles in 50 minutes, and even did the C25K workout while I was at it! Feeling much better about my day now. The article linked below is what the title of my blog refers to, don't let a setback keep you down! It popped into my head while I was thinking about how crappy a lunch I'd eaten, and helped me get motivated to go exercise!

    Tracking is SO important for me. That's the only reason I'm at maintenance rather than having to lose again. Even if you don't like what it tells you, it is valuable information to get you thinking about your goals...long term health and fitness vs. short term mouth and stomach satisfaction. You are thinking now, and it's leading you to act!
