So things have been nuts for me with graduate school. We have been on a crazy run of exams before spring break. I took a 4 hour exam this morning. Sadly, no I’m not joking. I also have 4 more exams this week. Due to this, my diet and exercise as been put on the back burner. I’ve been working out, but I legit have had 0 time to even go to the store. So my diet was pushing it and super limited. Meeting calorie goals but my nutrition was not as on par as it has been. As much as I don’t want to admit it, this resulted in lunch today being taco bell. Simply because I had no food to even meal prep. Yep. I exceeded my calorie goal in one meal…Initially I felt really guilty, but then I was like…wtf….why? Which is the point of this post…screw ups happen.
Diets and weight loss is never linear. Even when you’re perfect, sometimes you’re weight doesn’t match. ITS OK! Even if your weight matches some bad choices, THATS OK! Even though my weight has been dropping consistently for about two months, it wont always be like this. ALSO OK!
In the long run, if you want healthy habits (that will lead to weight loss) to be sustainable, you will randomly “screw up” or have a bad days. The key is to not beat yourself up over it and just keep going. Recognized it happened and say, tomorrow I’ll do better. I’m 100% certain that because of my t-bell adventure my weight will be up this week. It sucks, but so be it. Life happens. Even though I’m way over on calorie goals for the day, I’m still going to the gym tonight. I still plan to try to get back on track and do better tomorrow. Its all I can do. Keep your head up friends and keep trying. That is the key. You got this!
