I’ve messed around during the last 24 hours. I’ve been a little careless with my eating, and I haven’t worked out. I’ve been running myself ragged for days, and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. But it’s time for me to get back into the game.
I’m not saying that I’ve over eaten -I’m pretty good at eating reasonably portions at this point. But I haven’t been as focused as usual either so I can’t be sure exactly how much I’ve had (though I’m going to try to concentrate on figuring that out shortly.)
Today was a day devoted to family and friends who feel like family. I spent time with my favorite cousin and her baby again today, and this time my favorite sister and niece came along too. 😉 We all went to lunch with my aunt, and I ate chicken alfredo. I also ate salad and a few bread sticks which was part of the plan. It was tasty, but my stomach hurt after eating it. It’s so yummy, but so heavy!
For dinner, I ate a light meal that was very high in protein, but I did a little snacking throughout the day too. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with snacking. 😉 I’m just disappointed in myself for not being as precise as usual. I brought my food scale with me on this trip so there’s really no excuse not to be thorough.
All I can say is that I’ll do better starting now. I’ll track the specifics tomorrow, and working out will be first on my agenda. Visiting family is wonderful, and being in control of my intake is just as important here as it is at home.
I am the happiest version of myself when I’m doing my best so that’s what I’m going to do – starting now. Forgiving myself for being less than perfect used to be so hard. Now I realize that it’s not the end of the world as long as I become aware and move forward. That’s my plan for today.
