Lessons Learned

Sunday, May 07, 2017

I would consider yesterday a success. I planned the meals I would eat and ate only those. I resisted the unhealthy snacks at work. This morning, I woke up feeling good, and even excited to hop on the scale. But, I'd made no progress. In fact, I saw a slight increase. What was happening, I thought. I even tried to convince myself that I deserved a break, since the scale wasn't moving. That just doesn't make sense. I am thinking that it might be best to weigh myself weekly, instead of daily. Perhaps, I am too reliant on the number on the scale.

This afternoon, I attended an alumni event today at my school. The event included the opportunity to meet professionals in my field over lunch. Admittedly, I over-indulged and I did not make the best choices. Afterward, I went out for drinks with some of the alum, and continued to drink throughout the event. I do not make a habit of heavy drinking, but I realize drinking does not allow me to make the best choices.

So, here I am. I'm not disappointed in myself. I am accepting that sometimes I will make poor choices, but I will still succeed.

    We all have days like this. What's important is that you keep moving forward and that you don't let one day that didn't go as planned dictate how all your other days will be.

    You can do this - one day at a time!
