It could have been worse...

I really have not made any progress this summer - I just can't seem to get motivated. But after two months of looking at a closet severely lacking in summer clothes that fit, I decided I really needed to get back on the wagon.
I've been diligently measuring and tracking my food this week. Funny thing, when I do that, I actually tend to come up short on calories, so I’m searching the kitchen at 8 p.m. for something healthy. I actually cooked several items to have on hand for take-to-work lunches and quick meals – whole wheat pasta salad with vegetables, brown rice, etc. Packed lunch and a healthy snack for work. Drank lots of water. So far, so good.
Until last night. Actually, I think it started with lunch – I woke up late so I forgot to take lunch. Note to self – don’t forget lunch! I managed to find a few healthy snacks in my office to tide me over, but it obviously was not the same. Dinner went completely off the rails – ate way too much too fast. The miracle is, after I logged everything this morning, I was only 100 calories or so over my target. I guess I wasn’t as far off the track as I thought.
So today, I’m telling myself what I often comment to others – we don’t need to be perfect. We just need to do better than we did before.
