So I went camping on a family vacation about a week ago and can I tell you, I felt so awful that I wasn’t working out! Plus I hadn’t prepped any meals for myself, I was out of schedule and it drove me mad!! I still made sure I tried to stay on track; I ate eggs, fruit, tofu, you know, the good stuff. But at times I found myself eating chips, and ice cream and pizza!
This isn’t like me! I know control!
At the time I thought it was SUCH a big deal that I cheated myself, as I got back, I wanted to weigh myself to see how awful I had done, I’m sure that number had gone up the past week. I looked at the scale, and I REFUSED to get on it! (yes, it takes me a lot of will power to no look at my scale) Instead I gave myself a good workout(: a couple of days past, it’s been a good two weeks since I’ve weighed myself. I lost two pounds!!! I sat back and thought about the “bad cheats” I gave myself during vacation, honestly, it wasn’t even that much! my brain just over exaggerated! chips? I only had 1 handful! Ice Cream? I had half a cup of LOW FAT SUGAR FREE! Pizza? I HAD A SMALL SLICE! I guess I wasn’t used to eating junk, maybe that’s why I felt so bad!!
So to wrap it all up, if you mess up, don’t GIVE up! Simple as that! We are all humans, and we all once in a while are going to want to indulge into some junk food! We make mistakes, so what? We LEARN from mistakes! So even if you treat yourself to some ice cream, make sure you make up for it!
