Ditching the all-or-nothing
Friday, March 01, 2013
Well, today was one of those incredibly stressful days with a sick kiddo and craziness at work. I had packed healthy food to eat during the day. I've been much better about consistently eating breakfast at home before I leave in the morning, but didn't today and then the minute I got to work there was no time. But, now that I think about it, I did "have time" to eat the cookies given to me as a gift. (As I was typing that, I have to kind of laugh because my healthy stuff was right there!). Anyway, the morning was very busy and stressful, so I justified not eating my healthy salad and ate instead what was available in the office. I was a little frustrated with myself, but (for once) I didn't let it sabotage the rest of my day and I had a healthy dinner. In the past, I would have definitely said "screw it, I already messed up today" and would have not been healthy for the rest of the day. It's a small victory, but I'm slowly realizing it's these little victories over time that will pave the way to my healthy future. Hooray!!
