Just being real here
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
I had a great Saturday and managed to keep my eating under control even when it got challenging and I felt unmotivated.
I had a pretty good Monday where I planned the meals and didn't judge myself for swapping out a planned healthy meal for a healthy alternative.
Sandwiched in between was Sunday - the day the family goes out for something not so healthy after church. Well, this week we went to Stevi B's pizza buffet. Lest you think I always have it all together, I'll admit to the 4 slices of traditional pizza and 3 slices of dessert pizza I consumed alongside my much healthier salad and lemon water. Oh, I had little serving of bacon mac & cheese too. Who could forget that?
I compensated for the mega-meal at lunch by having a healthy apple for dinner before heading back to church in the evening. I anticipated a small healthy snack if I was hungry later on. But on the way home, my husband picked up a large shake "for the kids" ...and guess who ended up drinking most of it?
I think my overindulgence on Sunday probably had something to do with the lack of motivation I was still experiencing from Saturday combined with the fact that I didn't bother to plan my meals. Throw an all-you-can-eat buffet into the mix, and it's a recipe for disaster.
I'm so thankful that each day is a new day. No matter how much I messed up on one day, I can start over the next. And really, why wait until the next day to start over? I can always start over immediately by making the next meal healthy or taking a walk right now.
