So I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!
I spent my day at the a beautiful beach in Carmel. To bad it was freeeezing - 60 degrees, overcast, and tons of wind. It was a party with a huge group of family friends. But it was a potluck sort of event so there was a ton of delicious but VERY BAD for you food.
I did so well all day — had a fruit smoothy for breakfast while getting everything ready for the day trip (My family is always running late…I absolutely HATE being late. It stresses me out even if being late wont affect anything…so I end up doing a lot to get everything we need prepared cause my family would just take their sweet time if they were in charge of it).
I made sure to bring a bag of fresh chopped veggies so I could eat that instead of eat say chips, pasta salads, cookies, etc. And you know what! It did helped. I had a bunch of veggies and bit of fruit salad and a 3 oz. burger with a whole wheat bun. Not bad.
But… then they were making s’mores. I ended up eating 3 1oz pieces of chocolate. Which probably put me over my calories for the day but not by to much right? Well.. since I used to the rest of my calories on that stupid chocolate I didn’t eat dinner and by the time we got home from the beach at about 9pm I was really hungry, light headed from all the smoke of the fire, cold and tired. At that moment I didn’t really give a fuck about my calories. :/ So I eat some Doritos and cheese and crackers… way more then a serving of each. So a day that up till about 6pm was going great turned into a failed day :(
Oh well… failure is a part of life. And you know what this is the first day I have gone over my calories so it’s not like I’m automatically going to be 5lbs heavier. It just means I have today and tomorrow and all the days till my UWG (and well all the days for the rest of my life) to keep trying to be better, eat healthier, exercise more, and become stronger!
So if you have a bad day don’t stress about it to much. It happened, it happens. Don’t let it defeat you and stop you from working on being better. Don’t let thoughts of having failed and not being strong enough push you back from what you want. Honestly, tell those thoughts to FUCK OFF. Just because you had one bad day doesn’t mean you are weak and can’t become healthy or fit or loss weight.
Today I’m going to do better. Today I’m going to BE better. Are you?
