In my last post I said that I would reset and start making healthy decisions again immediately, and I did. I am happy (and relieved) to say that my eating and workout habits were back to normal today. I ate several servings of fruits and veggies, two servings of lean protein along with whole grains, and I completed a heart-pumping, sweat inducing workout on the elliptical at the gym. And while it can take more than one day of healthy choices to make up for one day of unhealthy choices, I’m a step closer to my ultimate goal – to be healthy.
It’s no surprise that I feel much better after a full day of healthy eating than I felt after eating junk food all day. I’ve spent the last two years making (mostly) good choices, and it’s still hard to admit that I made a conscious decision to eat unhealthy foods for an entire day. But if you read my blog, you know that I own my decisions – the good ones and the bad ones. And the last 24 hours of good ones will soon become 48 hours of good ones.
This journey, at least for me, is not about perfection. It’s about changing my relationship with food and exercise and doing my best and not giving up. I’m so much healthier than I was when I began this journey, and I’m going to do my best to make it another healthy day.
How do you bounce back after a less-than-stellar day of eating?
