I'm Not Giving 100%

How is it already Wednesday? I'm not really complaining. I just feel like I have wasted the first couple days of my week. I didn't follow my meal plan for Monday and Tuesday; I ate really late "snacks", and; I haven't been getting much sleep. I even ate a donut for breakfast this morning:

Instead of dwelling on what I haven't done, I will try to look to the positive. For instance, I have been following my exercise plan. My husband and I went for an evening bike ride on Monday and went 2.5 miles in 30 minutes. I also tried to make myself a healthy breakfast this morning, but left it covered on the stove, forgetting about it when I left for work. My co-worker brought in donuts so even though it wasn't the best choice, at least I had something to eat for breakfast.

I know that I'm not giving this 100% right now, and I feel guilty about that. I need to remind myself that nobody can give 100% all of the time. I just need to forgive myself and keep trying.

  1. 2.5 miles in 30 minutes is awesome! remember progress is infinately better then prefection, if we don't make mistake we can't learn from them!

  2. It happens to all of us! My favorite "get back on the wagon" phrase is.
