WLW - wk 5
As you may have seen, I had a fun weekend away with a few of my girlfriends. I'm sure you can imagine how faithful I was to my healthy eating while we were away. I was away from my safety zone where I have my kitchen and (usually) healthy food to prepare. We ate out the whole time we were gone... I kind of felt like at any given meal I would either make a fairly healthy choice but overeat, or I would choose something not healthy and have decent portion control. It wasn't all bad, I did keep from unhealthy snacking by bringing some things from home. But dining out killed me.
So... what I am trying to focus on this week is keeping on keeping on. I'm not going to let a slip up or set back ruin me. I am not going to drop out of this race I am running just because I made a few bad choices. I am doing what I can to refocus and regain the healthy patterns that I have been working so hard to implement. When a runner stumbles, do they quit? No, they get back up and they finish the race.
This weeks weigh-in: 0lb lost since last week - 6lbs total. Not great - but considering the change in routine with being out of town and all, I guess its better than gaining.
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 1 Corinthians 9:24
