Yesterday was the first big day of this diet bet where I just said "fuck it" and ate like crap (5 chocolate-chip cookies and half of a giant bag of tortilla chips). I also didn't follow through on my plan to go to the Y and do a bootcamp class. Nor did I stretch or roll out my quad/hip, which are bothering me.

I was, for whatever reason, feeling down. I was feeling alone.

Today, though, I feel better. I realized a couple of things that I actually did well:

  • I faithfully tracked my food in My Fitness Pal. Yay me! (And in retrospect, it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be - it was about 2000 calories gross consumption.)
  • Although I skipped the Bootcamp class and didn't walk the dog last night, I still managed to get my 30 minutes of exercise in. I walked 27 minutes outside the office as an afternoon break and walked about 15 minutes inside the building, deliberately going to people's offices to speak with them instead of just IM-ing them. 
  • Eating the crap made me not want to continue eating it today. So I've been eating healthily again.
  • I reached out to people today (hubs, co-worker) so I don't feel quite so alone anymore. :)
  • I'm excited and looking forward to running later today! (Yay - running is becoming a habit, finally!)


Guess it's ok to fall down as long as you don't lay there feeling sorry for yourself. This girl just got back up, dusted herself off, and got her ass back in the game.
