Day 168

You win some, you lose some...for now. I did not make it to the gym today but I promised my mother and more importantly myself that I would go tomorrow. So I skipped that battle for the day. However I do believe I am finally completely back on track food wise. I have even posted some recipes.

I need to create another short term weight loss goal to aim for, as I do not believe I am going to make my February 28th goal. I'm kinda sad about that, and a little disappointed, but honestly who can I blame? Me. I made the choices that have gotten me to this point, good and bad. I still feel like I am doing really well despite the fact that I have been dragging my feet. I want it to be fast, and I want it to be easy but it will never be that. Slow and steady wins the war, and again "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Yeah, I still feel like this is war. I will create a new goal on Sunday after my weigh in.

Today:
1 1/2 cups bean soup: 6
1/4th cup rice: 1
1 piece dove chocolate 1
1 arnolds sandwich thin: 1
1 serving chicken salad: 3
1 serving pickles: 0
1 serving spinach: 0
steamed carrots 0
1 yogurt 2
1 can soup: 7
1 serving crackers: 2
3oz lean pork tenderloin: 3
1 1/6 serving indian spiced cauliflower and potatoes: 7
1 arnolds sandwich thin: 1
1 serving jam: 1
1/2 serving nutella: 2
1 cup hot chocolate: 4
41/42

Not so bad I think. I ate a nice amount of veggies today and got in all of my other daily recommended requirements. Trudging along nicely again, soon I'll be back to marching.

I think the great thing about having goals is allowing for flexibility when life gets in the way.

It's taken me until NOW to realise that it's far worse to be inflexible and think of myself as failing when I don't 100% achieve a goal, than admit I'm often too hard on myself and consider what I have achieved a 75% success!

Keep on keeping on...that's what you are doing and doing so well. So what if you didn't make the goal...you are still going in the right direction, and you'll make the next goal.
You're doing great.
