Going Easy On Myself
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
After doing pretty well with check in on SparkPeople almost every day for a week and a half, I managed to slip up over the weekend and forgot to sign in Saturday or even Sunday. I've had a lot going on.
In the past, when I'd slip up after doing well with being on a streak, I'd really beat myself up over it; this time I have been able to shrug my shoulders and say, "Life happened. Even though I lost my streaks I still did what I've been doing and that's what's most important."
My kids were invited to a birthday party Saturday night. I drank a single can of Sprite, my first soda in almost a month. It tasted great, and I wasn't too tempted to drink a second one. I simply grabbed a bottle of water and drank that. I was proud of myself.
With Thanksgiving this Thursday it would be easy to put on the pound and a half I've lost, but being that my family & I will be staying home to celebrate, there will not be as much food to be tempted by. I should be okay for my weigh in the following week LOL
I wish all of you all the best this Thanksgiving. Remember, thought eating healthy and taking care of yourself is important, spending quality time with family and/or friends and truly enjoying yourself is just as important.
Keep on keeping on Sparkers!
