Yesterday and today have not been good days for me. They’ve been great days. Just not food wise. I have said time and time again that I track all of my food. All of it. There have only been a small, very small, amount of days that I have not tracked. That amount just grew by 50% because I didn’t track yesterday or today.
Yesterday I picked out carpet for my new house (btw I owe you all an update on the house front) and then went to lunch with my sister. We ordered two dishes and shared. We practically attacked the food. It was so good though. Wish I would have taken a picture for you all.
Then last night we had a family dinner after my nephew’s soccer game. I had a big fat cheeseburger and lots of hand cut fries. It wasn’t even the best burger I have ever had. It was good. Just not the best. Either way it was still a lot of points. Or I assume since I haven’t tracked it.
Ok, so I’m feeling a little down because of these two days where I have not made the best food decisions. Two weigh-ins ago I was .6 away from reaching the next 5 lb mark. Last weigh-in, there was no change. So I am still .6 away from that mark. I really want to hit it this weigh-in but do not feel this is going to happen after eating so poorly today and yesterday.
Oh yeah, I didn’t tell you that I ate like 10 snack size candy bars today at work. 10! I went to the candy bowl at work and got 1 of each kind of bar. Oh geez! Bad decision after bad decision.
After hearing all of that, hear this. I know that 2 days isn’t going to ruin me. I know that I’m not going to gain all of the weight back that I have lost. I know that I might not reach the next 5 lb mark this next weigh-in but I also know that I will reach it. If not this week, then next. I’ll get there.
Live happens. We aren’t going to stay within our daily points every day for the rest of our life. Weight Watchers is about teaching us to make good, healthy decisions the majority of the time, how to deal with those days that we don’t and how to stay or get back on track when we get off. They are training us for the rest of our lives. We will have days where we aren’t perfect. That’s ok. Just as long as we don’t let those days get out of control.
So yes, what I did yesterday and today is not helping me get closer to what I want tomorrow. But…
