November 13, 2019 - Taking your eye off the prize

Wednesday, November 13, 2019


I knew it was a no-no when I first put it in my mouth. But I rationalized "just small piece of cheese". And since I knew it, I adopted the "well I have blown it already" attitude later that night with a small handful of raw almonds.

Lunch out at a lecture was healthy and tasty and I didn't 'go hog wild'. But it was more calories than my usual lunch so I needed to plan dinner accordingly light. And I did a small spinach salad and was just a few calories over my 1250 goal. Didn't have that glass of wine I thought about or the heavier soup that I had in the fridge.

I ate the 1 ounce of cheese. I knew it would undo yesterdays progress...cause I had not fulfilled my water consumption as well. Yes I did this knowingly and not at all listening to my mindful warning.

My resistance, my mindfulness, my do I hazard to say "willpower" - left it at the last "I can't do it" step.

Not gonna beat myself up, gonna build myself up! No more...
