So, I wasn't particularly on plan over the weekend. Turns out that I checked out, unplugged, and then promptly stuffed my face.
I didn't fall off the wagon (as Oprah says), no ... I fell onto the food wagon.
Pizza. Tortilla chips. Guacamole. Cupcakes.
Yes, the food wagon made a stop in my back yard (literally as the BBQ was in my back yard) and I stumbled over myself to get at it.
This was probably the most off plan I've been since starting my new healthy lifestyle. Sure, I've had little slips here and there but this was a consistent slip all weekend long.
I'm somewhat dreading the weigh-in tomorrow but we're adults and must deal with such consequences, right? No more turning my back on the scale as I've realized that doesn't make it go away.
The only thing left to do today is get my mind in the right place (which it is ... I CAN DO THIS!) and focus on taking care of myself.
The truth is, we all stumble. But truly successful people (like us!) pick, ourselves back up, learn from the mistake, and keep charging ahead.
And that is what is on my agenda for the day.
As an aside, Oprah has a rerun today of her weight loss show where she talks about gaining some of her weight back. If you haven't seen it, be sure to Tivo it. It's very interesting and I sure could relate to a lot of what she was saying.
