Today's Lesson on Motivation and Perservance
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Well, today was weigh in day once again. Actually it was only six days since my last weigh in but I was next door to one of the places that I weigh. The biggest morale of this story is something we all preach everyday, it's one day at a time, one bite at a time.
This past Saturday, I worked for my wife at our courier business, which I seldom do anymore. I went back to my wayward ways of the past. For breakfast I ate 4 doughnuts, two sandwiches from Burger King, for lunch I had two, 1/2 pound Wendy's cheeseburgers and for dinner I had chinese. I've posted some of the calories from the Chinese take-out in other blogs but here it is once again for those who missed it.
Two egg rolls =770 calories
one order of Egg Fu Young=5,053 calories
So, I dove off of the wagon, by having
over 11,000 calories for the day instead of my 2300-2990.
To add insult to injury, our grandkids came to visit on Mother's Day and we ordered pizza, which they all love. Don't even remember those calories, LOL
With that in mind, plus the fact that I weighed in after six days, I STILL LOST .9 POUNDS.
Imagine what I would have done in seven days of BEHAVING MYSELF
So, lesson learned,
IT IS OND DAY AT A TIME
ONE CHOICE AT A TIME
ONE BITE AT A TIME
Good luck to all,
Hope we ALL can learn from this experience
