I'm always talking about taking it day by day. Well at least for the next few days I'll actually be taking it meal by meal. What's interesting about last week was that I ate healthy breakfast everyday of the week and my first snack was healthy too. What killed me was lunch, I went out for lunch 4 of the 5 workdays. After lunchtime failures it was that much easier to not do well in the evening because in my mind the day was blown.
So is the world coming to an end for me? Hardly! In 8 weeks I've still managed to lose 5% of my bodyweight. I've also been smoke free for 111 days and have not had a drop of alcohol in over 40 days. So when you put things in perspective, having 1 week where I gained a little weight pales in comparison to the whole focus on improving my health.
I'm keeping my head up because last week was only one small battle lost. The war can still be won, but only if I choose to keep fighting.
