Bad Day

So yesterday was not good. Full disclosure, there was more eating than there should be.  Like a lot… What the hell happened?  It was horrible, it was like I was compelled to eat.  I don’t know if it was that day in my cycle or what but it was a break down.  I didn’t even take any pictures because the shame was real.  The one thing I had going for me was that I don’t have a lot of horrible stuff in the house.  I don’t keep any food that I love in the house because of this very reason.  I am working on my attitude towards food but it still has a ways to go, I can still slip into that mindset of “oh well, day's shot, mind as well eat everything.”

Now, what I am going to improve on? Resetting myself.  It happened, it's over, move on.  Today has been a much better day, which is surprising because sleep did not happen last night.  Between a teething baby and a sick husband, I’m exhausted. I totally thought that exhaustion was going to win out and I was going to have a lazy day, but not the case.  I was able to get 2.5 miles in, good food choices, all in all a good day.  I got this.

I think the thing I need to work on the most is resetting myself.  I have ALWAYS struggled at this.  I have always fallen for the “cheat weekend” which turns into weeks, or literally I would have one piece of those Dove chocolate(you know what I mean, those little squares)  and immediately throw the whole day out.  I can be so black and white when it comes to creating a healthy lifestyle and I am pretty sure that attitude is the antithesis of a healthy lifestyle.  Yesterday is not going to change my results, how I treat today will.
