I messed up today, but that is OK.
So today, I ate nothing but crap… all day. Literally did not eat one vegetable or clean piece of food for the entire day.
Here is a recap of what I ate, in order from start to finish:
- 1 bowl of cinnamon toast crunch w/skim (Breakfast)
- 1 piece of toast with butter
- 1 glass of cran-tangerine juice
- 1 large serving of baked macaroni and cheese (Lunch)
- ANOTHER large serving of mac n cheese (Dinner)
- 5 chocolate hearts (Snacks/Dessert? lol)
- 2 lolly pops
- 3 scoops of chocolate chip ice cream
Yep. I have been fighting negative feelings all day about it. I rarely get down on myself for making mistakes but I have been really hard on myself all day— which lead to even more poor choices. You see, I am a human being— and I was literally thinking in my head after I finished off my bowl of ice cream, “This is going to be so embarrassing letting all 1600 of my followers see that I was a lazy pig with no will power all day.” But that’s the thing. I am only human, just like everyone else on this planet (as far as we know… lol). So how can I be embarrassed for being a flawed human being? I refuse to be ashamed of my actions. Instead I am accepting them and moving on to tomorrow to start the day fresh and new. I would not consider any of my eating today as a binge, for I did not sit down and eat a large quantity of food at one time.. I just made poor choices is all.
I have noticed a pattern too, and am going to try really hard to pay more attention to this pattern. I have come to realize that when I say “screw it” in the morning during breakfast— it usually leads to more unhealthy choices throughout the day. It is not a conscious thing usually… it just happens. So if I am going to make very clean, healthy choices I am going to especially make sure I start off my day with a nutritious breakfast. It jump starts my day and inspires me to keep making better choices as the day goes on! :D
Tomorrow is another day. And it is never too late to start over and make things right again. :-)
Any thoughts, comments, or concerns?
