Day 20/600 - about yesterday
Thursday, March 05, 2020
Yesterday was a long day, got up at 4am, got home at 10pm and I did not feel like recording my „disaster of a day“. Didn’t go so well....3 food supplier visits, and I did well up to lunch. Lunch was seafood, so on the lighter side.
In the afternoon though we had a cheese tasting, and I usually don‘t eat much cheese, but didn‘t hold back, kept nibbling away. If I would have tallied up then and left it for the day, it would still have been „ok“.
But, the problem was dinner.....had to take out the team and was actually not hungry. Went to a (great) pizza place. Even ordered salad....but couldn’t keep myself away from the pizza once I had my first slice..... and that was that. Anyways, came home stuffed, depressed.
So, looking for the positive....
- I had much worse days and still ate much less than I would actually eat on a „regular day“ about a month ago
- I got up this morning and re-committed to my journey
- I aced today - all day meeting with catered breakfast (pastries) and lunch
- I passed on the pastries
- I only ate salad for lunch
- cooked my own dinner
- drank my water......
And I know I will be ok and caught up by the weekend. Now, need to focus on keeping these inevitable occurrences to a minimum. I am positive I can, and will, do this. I will not stay down, but get up every time I trip!!!
Day 20 - 14 lbs down - only 186 lbs or 580 days to go to 220lbs
I WILL succeed, because I choose to, because I CARE!
C - COMMIT + Plan every day - I choose to see every day as a new opportunity!
A - ACT on my plans consistently - I choose to take the initiative, I own this!
R - RECORD + REVIEW daily - what worked, what didn’t - Celebrate every victory, learn from any challenge!
E - EMBRACE the journey - I choose to own every decision and every choice and will not be derailed by one challenge, by one bad choice!
