I took a bit of a tumble down the hill (read HUGE MOUNTAIN) where I live on Wednesday morning. Trying to avoid a puddle, I slipped on the wet sidewalk next to it. On the ironic scale, pretty hilarious. On the pain scale, ouch! It hurt to move, but thankfully I walked away with nothing worse than some bruising. I avoided the gym later that day and the day following. I could barely walk. There was no way I could elliptical.
Yet, I was very excited about the opportunity to show the eating skills I've mastered. Despite the pain, I didn't let myself eat emotionally and even saw a loss the next morning!
Thursday, on the other hand, was pretty awful food-wise. I have a variety of trigger foods, and they can all be lumped into the same category: carbohydrates. I ordered chow fun while out at lunch with a lay leader, and ate responsibly. But then I got hungrier later that day, with delicious leftovers sitting in the fridge. Without enough forethought, I ate everything that was left!
But I'm feeling good about today, right now. I have been eating normally once again, with no more Chinese food to haunt my fridge. I love being able to start a new day!
