Glad to hear that you recognized this... you aren't going eat "perfectly" every single day for every single meal/snack that you eat, and that's okay! It's all about your overall lifestyle change. If you failed one test in college, does that mean you failed and didn't get a degree? Of course not. If you don't eat as well as you should one day, does that mean that you can never eat good again? Definitely not. Keep on keeping on :)

I don't know what went on with me on Monday but I ended up polishing off all the miniature Easter candies and the remainder bag of walnuts along with whatever else I could find. And to top it off, in the evening I asked my hubby to pick up burgers on his way home. Pitiful... I didn't want to log the food in the food tracker because I was so embarrassed and didn't even want to know what kind of damage I had done. The following day I went to lunch with a friend and also didn't really care about the menu. I continued to hide from the nutritional tracker for the remainder of days this week. Today I finally pulled up my bootstraps and logged the damage. Surprisingly, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. Especially when you look at the averages for the weeks, I am still within my weekly calorie range. How that happened, I don't know. I am just glad Sparkpeople is here to keep us all honest and on track, whether you do well, or whether you get off track a bit, it's here to be your friend and just tell you what's what. It doesn't yell at me. It just gives me the facts and points out the truth. I also found out that yelling at yourself doesn't do any good, so now it's time to just shrug it off and keep on trucking.
