Caution: Moment of weakness ahead
I wish there were signs, in big red letters to let me know when something like this is about to happen. Don't you?
I woke up feeling so amazing on Saturday and continued my healthy streak through the day. I felt good and hung out with friends at night. Two glasses of wine led to late night eating. Wasn't too hard on myself.
Sunday morning, a planned day out with the girls. Breakfast went well, fruit, handful of almonds and coffee (Good start right? Especially since the other 3 ladies were eating homemade cinnamon crunch cake for their main course) The day goes on, the four of us head out for pedicures. I didn't plan ahead and become ravenous by the time we make it back to the house. Pretzels, almonds and homemade pizza (a lot of homemade pizza) I allowed zero conscious decision making. Then it continues through the night for dinner. A big snowball of nasty feelings and guilt.
What have I learned? While not making good decisions feels good in the moment, like a break from discipline, the effects feel worse and ultimately set me back.
How do you rebound from the guilt of bad decisions and straying from your goals?
