Yesterday was a tough day at work. Busy busy, frustrating. FRUSTRATING. So at the end of the day when I went by the breakroom and there was a box of donuts on the table, guess what I had. Oh, that was a good donut. Unfortunately it didn’t stop there. I ate the ‘healthy’ brownie that I had brought with me on the way home in the car. Then I stopped and got a small bowl of frozen yogurt before I got home. THEN I took the little bowl of walnuts, chocolate chips, and raisins to bed with me. Dad gummit. Up until 6:30 pm I had had more than three days of perfect food choices.
So what’s a girl to do? Encouraged my those two stalwart bloggers and long time maintainers, Miz and Lynn, I got up this morning, pulled my leggings up over my lumpy legs and headed out for a four mile walk with Noah. Onward and upward. Made good food choices one meal, one snack at a time today. That’s how you maintain for life, they say.
Mizfit says: Top Tip: Consistency. The secret is to move a little, day in and day out, week in and week out, year in and year out. The same goes for eating. No matter what approach to food you take, simply aim to be as consistent as you can with your plan. Deviating from our healthy paths every now and then isn’t what packs the pounds back on. It’s when we lose sight of our path entirely.
