I slipped up, but I'm not giving up

Friday, June 04, 2010

So here's how my first four days have been so far....

Day 1 - started good, ended up VERY BAD (can you say MEGA headache?)

Day 2 - AWESOME!!!

Day 3 - Pretty good - I had to walk into the same bakery twice, then walked through another bakery twice...and I never even got a cupcake either time (oh, but how they were calling to me!) Then after my son's last soccer game, we had bought cookies for the kids and I had to have one (okay, three :P)

Day 4 - Pretty good....until tonight....

Tonight we ended up going out to eat. I was pretty hungry when we were leaving, since we were eating kinda late. The whole time I'm telling myself "Its okay, Leslie, you can do this...no matter where we go, they're going to have some sort of options like salad or something. Or you can just order regularly and eat 1/2 or something"

Then we pulled into one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Mmmmmmmm....pasta.....

So, I couldn't resist having bread when it came to the table. And I ordered a regular pasta dinner, but I brought half of it home! All in all, not too bad, but not exactly what I wanted to do.

But that's okay, I'm not giving up this time. I'll just get up tomorrow and keep plugging away. I've been exercising according to my schedule, so I'll just keep right on doing that. Pick myself up and keep on going. I may not be perfect, but I'm doing better than I was before. And that's what counts - progress, not perfection!

I am SO not giving up.

    I also slipped...or should I say fell flat on my face this past weekend. And you are right! No giving up!! There are always going to be obstacles. We just need to LEARN how to deal with them better and not beat ourselves up if we don't.

    You are doing great! We all have to take baby steps to get to our goals. My motto is "everything in moderation!!"

    Good for you for not giving up or for beating yourself up about one slip. Eating out is the worst for me. I always have a plan - until I get there! I'm getting better, but it's stil hard to pass up something that I really, really love.
