Reality Bites

All I can say is that I broke all of my healthy living rules yesterday and I’m paying for it today.  I only slept about 4 hours on Tuesday night and my defenses were weak.  I had this nice sautéed chicken with POM reduction ready to try last night and by the time I walked in the door I was exhausted.  I took one look at the kitchen and said “Tonight we order PIZZA”.  So I ate 4 slices of thin crust mushroom pizza from Pizza Hut and a bread stick and the worst part…I drank 8 oz of REGULAR Pepsi.  Wait, it gets worse.  I then downed a small cup of Swedish Fish italian ice from Rita’s.  I warned you it was bad.  One thing all the carbs did was give me a much-needed energy boost so I could at least take the dogs for a nice long walk last night. 

I slept good last night so I’m feeling really optimistic about eating better today and I have a trip to the gym planned after work.  There was a time when I would let something like last night’s dinner set me into a downward spiral, but the way I see it now….I recognize dinner was unhealthy and I also recognize that I’m entitled to an unhealthy meal every now and then.  I didn’t eat like that to wash away my sorrows, I ate like that to save myself the effort of cooking. 

So I’m definitely making that chicken tonight and will be sure to share the recipe and photos tomorrow.  When’s the last time you gave in to your exhaustion and made a poor food choice?  I know you all have stories so hit up the comments.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself! Look up the detox tea in The Kind Diet, it will help you feel better. I just went shopping and I’m going to try a couple of the recipes, I’ll let you know what’s what’s. It was quit funny trying to find most of the ingredients, not knowing what I was looking for!. Is it a veggie, a canned food, a spice? I had to look up pictures of many of the veggies online! Even the people that worked at Right By Nature didn’t know what this stuff was! LOL

      Thanks Julie. I need to pick up that book still. I think I’ll stop at Borders on my way to book group tonight. See you soon.
