Happy Birthday weekend to me! I promised myself I wouldn't - but I did. My present to myself this year was supposed to be staying on track, but it didn't go exactly as planned. I worked out, but I definitely indulged more than I should have - and boy do I regret it. The saying 'you are what you eat' rings true. After a weekend of eating 'junk' I feel like just that -- JUNK!
But it's okay! I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I'm going to pick up and get right back on track! There are 4 weeks until Spring Break and I am going to make the most of them.
I have a hard time having A splurge. It turns into a downward spiral for me, which is exactly why I cannot use food as a reward. I found an article called 8 Reasons Why You're Not Losing Weight, and it really hit on some important points - consistency, eating the right kinds of calories, not letting your "cheat days" cheat you, and understanding that it's a combination of exercise AND diet.
How do you pick yourself up after a slip?
