After my weigh in on Thursday, I went downhill. After a week-and-a-half of beautiful calorie deficits came three awful terrible food days.
I really have no excuse for Thursday. It really started off well. Unfortunately I let myself make bad choices later in the day and treat myself to a Wendy's Frosty despite knowing that I had two bad days coming up ahead.
Friday we were having dinner at a friends. While I could have chosen to eat light, I filled my plate and pigged out. The foods of choice: KFC chicken and fries, as well as breadsticks with our salad (at least a small part was healthy). And as if that wasn't already bad, I topped it with two Smores Oreo cookies.
Saturday we had a family event. A cousin was visiting from England. This is a rare event despite the large family we come from. It was a potluck and despite my plans to take very little and fill my plate with veggies and fruit, I failed and filled my plate with everything else including some of my favourites - pirogies and potato salad.
Sunday, oh Sunday. . .finally a day to get back on track. I did well but it was certainly a struggle. If I was just starting, it could be the breaking point, but thankfully I know that this is something I can get past.
I have not exercised the last four days either. However, I can still confidently say "I've got this". My mind is made up and I need to get to the end of September so that I can get to the next part of my plan. I promise that I'll fill you in when I get there!
