Yesterday seemed for whatever reason to be a challenging day for me. I was hungry but didn’t want to cook. I didn’t want anything cold as I was cold and wanted a warm meal. Protein shakes and bars didn’t seem appealing at all. So what did I do? Well first I reached out to a few groups I’m on and got some great ideas. But when push came to shove last night I caved and got fast food. The kids wanted to eat Whopper Wednesday and since I was so not in the mood to cook anything.
Why am I telling you this? Well because I want you to know that I too am human. There are days when I make bad choices, there are days when I don’t feel like cooking. There are days when I am exhausted. I ate the whopper and it didn’t really do anything for me. It didn’t satisfy my hunger and it didn’t make the tiredness go away. But I can’t spend weeks thinking about this poor food choice, which is what I would have done in the past. What I took away from this is I need to be prepared. I need to have a few freezer meals ready to go for myself and the family. For some reason yesterday I was craving warmth and comfort. So I’m going to start having a few meals in the freezer that my fellow bariatric friends suggested and move on.
Don’t tear yourself down for one bad choice but also don’t keep repeating that same choice over and over again.
