Default Bad Day Turned Good

Today started off badly. The scale said I gained .4 pounds, which I know isn't a real weight gain but it sucked nonetheless.
Then I had a tuna sandwich planned for "breakfast". I had it made and was just about to stick it in the microwave to melt the cheese when I dropped the plate on the floor. Tuna sandwich mess to clean up and nothing prepared to eat!
A few months ago I'd have said screw it, I'm going to the diner. It actually passed through my head that I could just go get a gyro and fries. I'm allowing myself a planned gyro (NO fries) in August for my birthday. I didn't need another one anytime soon. I made another tuna sandwich instead.
Then I was trying to convince myself that I didn't have to go to the gym. After all, I had extra work preparing my food all over again and cleaning the mess and the gym closes at 5PM so it wouldn't hurt if I just didn't go today...
I went anyhow. And managed 40 minutes on the elliptical plus 35 minutes on the treadmill. In March when I first tried the elliptical I was toast at 1.5 minutes and praying for death when I crawled off the machine after a whopping 3 minutes. So hitting 40 minutes on the elliptical was awesome!
All things considered, a bad day turns into what *I* make of it. And I turned today into a GOOD day! I hope everyone else had a fantastic day also!

You know, sometimes it seems like the world is trying to sabotage your healthy choices (I've had cats eat my tuna sandwiches...twice!), gym equipment break, you name it.

But it has no power if you don't let it get to you! And you didn't!

LOL gotta love cats! My sister has to share with her two cats when she makes fish or opens a can of tuna. They bat at her with their paws and meow until she sees things their way.

that is the best attitude to have. everything is what you make it. when i am having a bad day weither it be from something at work to the weight loss or what ever it is i simple say "nothing can get to me unless i let it". i may have to say it more than once to make myself believe it but in the end it does work.

great job-

not sure how much you are into cooking, but just wanted to add a note on the gyros ( i also love them)
I make a lentil loaf flavored like gyros (rosemary is key ingredient). You can follow a regular recipe that calls for meat, just use cooked lentils instead. Or you could prob just use meat and it would still be better for you.
add all your own toppings and it is awesome much better then mystery gyro meat
Then you can have a gyro whenever you like.

just a suggestion

Not too long ago we were having roast for dinner....the kids were all coming over...Angie left the roast on the counter...all salt and peppered, while she went to get the roasting pan in the garage pantry....here comes Reba, golden retriever, down the stairs with it in her mouth...

so much for our planned meal right?

nah...we washed it off...cooked it...ate it...then told the kids...

As we make our journey..life gets in the way...

great job in dealing with the situation!

Congrats!
