Yesterday was my first day off of the 12 week challenge that I participated in. I really enjoyed doing it, all but having to make sure I got 7 hours of sleep per night. That was just too stressful for me!! Because of having a newborn and all!! But I loved all the other things. I hoped that at the end of the 12 weeks I wouldn't crave the SUGAR so much, but that didn't happen for me.
AND yesterday I took FULL advantage of not being on the challenge and being able to eat whatever I wanted. I didn't go out and buy fast food, or have french fries, or anything like that. It was all sugar! I am seriously embarassed to even say how much I had!!! 2 oversize cookies in the morning, ice cream sundae in the night...AND another 3 cookies. Hello??!!!!
Seriously overboard. And I was totally feeling it last night. Not only mentally but physically. There's a reason why I try to eat right all the time...because duh...I feel good when I do. Yesterday was serious overindulgence and I vowed to myself that today was going to be a new day, a better day. I reminded myself of what my goals are.
Is what I am eating, leading me to my goal? Or leading me in another direction, away from my goal?
I am so glad I did the challenge!! And I am definitely up for doing it again, when the babe is older and sleeping better!!! :)
