So the scale has me a little growly along with not sleeping well last night
Last week I was sick and ate poorly with little excercise. I am still congested and I may or may not start my new training plan this week. At the end of this week and next I am travelling. Alot of me wants to shelve the whole watching what I eat and excercising thing for the next 2 weeks until things calm down. I always accept my lumps and would accept a 3-5 lb backslide.
With these things in mind I didn't pack my breakfast or lunch today figuring I would indulge whatever I desired. Well I could have saved myself money. Got to the drive thru and one of my options for breakfast was available, she even looked up the calorie count. So I had 250 cal for breakfast, an apple, yougurt, and my standard and unhealthy 2 diet cokes (I switch to water when I get to work).
Yesterday I walked my 1.5 mi at lunch, and weather permitting I will do the same today. And I realise this is not the 24 mi I have been doing but its not zero miles either.
So I go forward gently, imperfectly, but knowing I can take the high road and perhaps for once I can spend a couple of weeks eating a little more loosely, excercising a little less, and maintain instead of gain. I think I can.
