Get the bleep over it! I ran across this blog post, (http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2012/08/16/get-over-it/) and it not only made me laugh, but it rang true. Wanted to share it because I know SO many of us take it so hard when we have a bad eating day, or miss a workout.

Nice. Very nice! I needed this badly three years ago, when I really had it in my head that I could use nasty drill sergeant inner dialogue to get the weight off. GTFOI probably describes my current way of eating. It's a lot slower, but I am a whole lot happier.

I think I'll make GTFOI my daily affirmation. Thanks for the link!

It's such a simple truth, but it's also sometimes so difficult to internalize.

Dr. Judith Beck uses the analogy of slip ups to breaking fine china. If a person drops a fancy plate, they wouldn't say "Oh, well, screwed that one up, might as well go and break the rest of the set, too." So it is with our food and fitness choices- we make mistakes, but should never compound them with more mistakes.

Thanks for sharing the blog post.

Hahaha! When I saw the title of this thread, I thought How did you know about last night? I went out with friends and ate worse then I could have. Great link very funny and true.

Profanity or not, it's definitely true. Nobody ever fixed a blowout by slashing the other three tires, nor did they ever lose weight by pitying themselves into paralyzing inaction over an inevitable slip up.

Definitely an excellent reminder!

you know what? thank you for that.

i saw the number on the scale this morning, and almost retreated to the pint of icecream hidden at the bottom of my freezer.

instead, i went to for a run, and it was my best ever.

I'm SOOO glad that you all could related and found it inspiring! I know I was definitely glad to have run across it (on the myfitnesspal forums of all places, which I usually avoid).

Thanks for the link. That made me laugh and just reinforced what I've been trying to tell myself for the past 20 months.
