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!

    Oh man I feel ya. I had to stop keto probably because of pizza! lol. It doesn't matter what type of plan we are using, there will always be days we wish we could have done better but you know what? The single biggest way to get to where we are going is to dust ourselves off and move on. We never gained weight from pizza or coffee or ice cream, we gained weight because we got depressed, discouraged, and hopeless and punished ourselves. Self love is the hardest thing I have ever worked on and will work on forever. It's also the most important. You are so wise to recognize how bummed you were and re-commit to a new day. Good for you! You are worthy of goodness and joy.

    Good for you, for assessing the day, forgiving yourself, and moving on. You can do this!

    Just a little bump in the road, friend. It happens. You acknowledged it, owned it, now it’s time to move forward.
    Keep up the good work.

    We stumble, we fall but we get back up to face another day. If you do that always, I should be reading your blogs for a very, very long time. It’s when you don’t brush yourself off and try again you will be on that downward spiral! Glad you are back up today and it was a very good day! Wtg!

    You're doing fine. You don't have to be perfect ever. On my journey I even gained weight back but like you dusted myself off and kept going.
