A Monday Moment of Honesty

This won’t be a lengthy post, as I need to leave for work in a few moments but, I just wanted to take this time to have a moment of honesty.  Yesterday was a bad food day for me.  I was having one of those days where, no matter what or how much I eat, for whatever reason, I just can’t get myself to feel full.  I went WAY over my calorie intake for the day.  Now, a lot of times, I would let something like this throw me off the horse, so to speak.  I would continue to gorge myself on food.  I would feel bad about myself and guilty for having indulged my insatiable hunger.  The guilt would lead to me feeling depressed, which would then, in turn, lead to a candy bar or some chips.

I know there are a lot of people out there who feel this same way.  However, I can tell you that, this time, I am not letting days like yesterday have the same effect might have before.  Because I am making a LIFESTYLE change, these days are going to happen.  I cannot, realistically, eat wonderfully healthy and perfectly within my calorie limit everyday.  Instead, I am going to eat super healthy for the rest of the week, make up for it with a little extra exercise.  I am also going to find a positive in yesterday.  I worked out quite a bit!  That is certainly more than I used to do on days when I would gorge before.

It all comes down to having the right mental state and the right approach to this whole thing.

I’m not dieting, I’m changing my life for the better!
