Fifty one days of empowerment...

... and on day 52, I hit a wall....
I hit the "reset" button 53 days ago. In the following 51 days, I did everything right -- the right attitude, the right food, the right movements. I was mindful of what I was eating, I made extra effort to move and walk, I tracked, I self-assured, I used positive reinforcement. I planned, I was present and I made an impact on my own life.
Yesterday was day 52, and, I consciously made the choice to eat anything and everything that I wanted. It wasn't "bad" food, it was just too much. The food I ate was good, I should have scaled back how much of it I had.
I give myself kudos because I tracked it all, and by the end of the day, I was over by 805 calories. Which isn't all that bad. It's the sodium that is the issue. I don't usually eat processed foods, and yesterday's food was loaded with sodium. The scale will show the high sodium induced bloating for sure.
Today has been a lazy day, and I've been grazing all day, but tracking all that I've eaten, and I'm still on track.
I'm proud of myself for staying on track for 51 days. I'm also proud that, even though I went off track yesterday, I didn't go right off the rails.
Life is good.
