Default My confession

Last night a big group of friends went out to dinner at Chili's for a birthday party and after scanning the menu for healthy choices, the salads weren't appealing to me, the only thing that really sounded good were fajitas. So I told myself I'd get the citris fire chicken and shrimp fajitas, I just wouldn't eat the tortillas or sour cream, or guac. But before I knew it 1 tortilla turned into 2 and just a dip of sour cream turned into almost the whole scoop. The lesson I learned here is to specify when ordering no tortillas, no sour cream, etc. I thought if it was sitting in front of me I would be able to just resist it..because I have been doing that for 2 weeks. And I easily could have. But if they wouldn't have been there to even think about eating, it would have been a less guilty dinner! I'm not beating myself up about it because I know there are things that could've been way worse for me to eat and that although I did eat 2 tortillas, I didn't eat the normal 5. I will just pick myself back up where I left off. 1 bad meal out of 16 days can't be too bad.

It happens to the best of us, but you have the right attitude about little slips like that. Don't beat yourself up, it happens, pick up and keep right on going. I know that if I am not supposed to eat something, I plain cannot have it in the house or have the restaurant not bring it to me. I don't have enough willpower not to eat the sour cream or tortillas!

And you're absolutely right - 1 bad meal out of 16 days is awfully good in my opinion.
