The last week has been pretty insanely busy for me…not because I wanted it to be, simply because I couldn’t avoid it. The days have been full of family visits, cleaning, errands, parties, and work. I feel like I haven’t been able to catch my breath for a long time. I am really looking forward to tomorrow, because I am doing NOTHING! *queue Bruno Mars ‘Lazy’ song*
One of the biggest causalities of my busy week was my diet. My eating has been atrocious! Between a planned cheat dinner for my anniversary, and then a surprise meal for my hubby’s birthday, my mom cooking my favorite dinner of ALL TIME (beef short ribs in chili sauce with mashed potatoes), and birthday party food…we can safely say that I am a bloated, miserable, mess who gained four pounds. ERG.
Yesterday I got back on plan and I feel better, but I know it’s going to take a solid week, maybe two, to rekill sugar cravings and get things back under control. It’s ok, though, because I know this race is a marathon, and not a sprint. Life happens. Celebrations happen. The important thing is that I got back on track. It helps that I am currently sipping on Gwen’s Thin Mint Shake. I mean, that really makes things easier. If you are having trouble getting back on the horse after some cheats or a bad week, know that YOU CAN DO IT! Every meal is a new opportunity. Don’t let defeat set you back. If you need some inspiration, try the thin mint shake! YUM!
