Time for a confession.
Monday and Tuesday evenings are always a struggle for me, food-wise. My husband isn't home for dinner on those nights, so I am left to cook for myself. I have trouble doing this sometimes, because I see it as my chance for a break! Without making much of a conscious decision the past two evenings, I have found myself some place that I haven't been in quite some time; the McDonalds drive-thru.
Eating there once (Monday's dinner), seemed to make it okay for me to eat there twice (Tuesday's breakfast), and then a third time (Tuesday's dinner) and then... a fourth time (Tuesday's "evening snack"). I am confessing this because if I blog about it, maybe it will help keep me from doing it again. I like to blog about things I am proud of accomplishing, rather than a confession of shame. This should be motivation enough to keep me out of the drive-thru.
The important thing is not what I have done, but what I do next. What's done is done! No sense in feeling guilty about it now. I probably won't have a loss this week because of all of the McDonalds I have consumed, but what I do next may prevent me from having a gain, or an even bigger gain than I would have had, if I didn't stop myself from repeating this cycle.
So, what am I doing next? Well, today is Wednesday and I have not had McDonalds. (que the round of applause!) I went for a walk on my lunch and I am making lasagna for my in-laws tonight. My mother-in-law is bringing the salad and some games for us to play!
Tomorrow, I am planning on finishing W2D3 of the C25K Program. I completed W2D2 on Sunday afternoon at the gym. I found that I prefer doing this program outside because I was getting bored on the tredmill; but the important thing is that I finished!
