I "cheated" yesterday and felt very guilty. I tell myself that I should have done this or that instead. I just made the bad and wrong choices. Now today, I'm trying to make up for it. I am eating healthy, but I'm not doing all the walking I should be doing. I will be weighing in tomorrow at the weekly TOPS meeting and I'm scared. I know I don't need to beat myself up over the "bad choices" I did make and hope to get back into a better frame of mind.

Yesterday was a good day – and a bad day. I “cheated” on my diet and treated myself to a BIG bowl of popcorn. A lot of people’s self control challenge has to do with sugar but not me, for me it’s popcorn. I could eat it 3 times a day and not miss anything else (at least for awhile). Popcorn is OK by itself but somehow it’s not the same if it’s the microwave variety and definitely not the same without butter – lots of butter. So yesterday I cheated. My calorie count for the day stayed reasonable but we won’t talk about the fat content. I also went a little crazy with exercise yesterday. That’s the good part. I just got my new shoes and decided to test their limits I guess. I did my new Walk Aerobics DVD all the way through. I did 23 minutes of WiiFit exercises mainly so I could log them on my WiiFit Team Challenge of 20 minutes a day and then I took our dogs for a half mile walk. So why do I feel guilty? I always thought that one day of falling off the wagon wouldn’t hurt too much but this morning I wondered if I was right or wrong in that assumption. I found this SparkPeople article this morning. It addresses that very question. It’s called, “Can You ‘Cheat’ on Your Diet and Still Lose Weight?”
Here’s the link:

I’m still not sure if I should be feeling guilty or not but today will be better. Why is it always so much harder to climb ON to the wagon than it is to fall OFF?
