Best laid plans ... out the window.

Thursday, September 01, 2011

I knew I had to take a friend from out of town to dinner tonight--no time to cook, school meetings all day. Besides I had a plan even though his favorite food is italian, I was going to order something I liked but bring 1/2 home. Well, I boxed up a little less than 1/2, but half way through the meal the waitress brought fresh garlic bread topped with parmesan cheese to the table. All bets were off. I kept dipping into the bread basket. My mind couldn't make my hand stop dipping, and my mouth stop accepting it. Well, it was good. So much for this week's weigh-in. There's always next week, as my southern grandmother used to say, "If I live and nothing happens...."

    Don't beat yourself up...one day won't kill a healthy lifestyle, just get back on the bandwagon...Instead of looking at one day as a make or break deal, eat the best you can for the remainder of the week and see if it balances out with the calories, etc. Stick to your workout schedule, and hopefully the end result will show no harm done at all! Good luck reaching your goals!

    I behave the same way you just described. We just can't beat ourselves up when it happens. You did it and just move on. The guilt trip is what starts a big binge with me.

    Probably the best thing to do in future is to ask that the bread not be brought.

    Take care!
