Why Did I Do It?
Wednesday, January 13, 2010
For the past week and a half, I've been doing really well with staying motivated, focused and being healthy. I've been mindful of what I've been eating; I've menu-planned and grocery-shopped; I've been eating my fruits and veggies each day; drinking my water; overall, doing really well... until last night.
I didn't prepare last night's scheduled dinner ahead of time (the night before); I forgot about it. It was supposed to be a Spark recipe: Mexican Meatloaf. So, in the morning, the Mister and I made a plan: we would eat Subway for dinner and make the meatloaf in the evening for tonight. Sounds like a great plan, right?
Well, I screwed up and de-railed our plan. I'm admitting it. In a moment of weakness during the commute home, I called the Mister's cell phone and asked him if he minded if we ordered a pizza, instead. He asked me if I really wanted to do that, as he was near Subway. I responded that yes, I really wanted a pizza.
So, we ate a hot giardineria pizza for dinner. At the time, it tasted really good to me. And, I ate 5 squares!!! FIVE squares of pizza!!!
Fifteen minutes later, it was NOT such a great idea. I was paying for this lapse in judgement with an upset stomach, horrible gas pains, and frequent trips to the bathroom for the rest of the evening.
This morning, I'm super-mad at myself. How could I do this to myself?!!!
Now, I'm trying to pick myself back up and return to my regularly scheduled routine. It's difficult because I keep beating myself up about my bad choice.
On the sunny side, we did make the meatloaf for tonight's dinner.
