Day "one" - if I can call it that

Saying today was a bust is probably an understatement. I started day one in a hotel in West Virginia for work. Breakfast was good, as were my intentions. Lunch was forced on me early due to my schedule and I did ok. I had a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup at Panera for 330 calories and drink water. By the time I was halfway though my 4 hour drive home this evening I was starving and the only place on my gas exit was McDonald's. So I caved. Ugh....  I'm telling you guys, as much as i want this, my heart isn't in it yet. I had a double cheeseburger and a small fries.

And because I'm sure to get my period tomorrow of course I had a sweet tooth, so I had a bowl of fruit loops at like 9:00. Never good. Awful awful Day one. I need to truly prepare better for this and try to figure out how to get my head in the game. I need to do a full fledged pantry and fridge clean out and start from scratch with only healthier options. And I need to keep some sort of healthier snack in the car for road trips like yesterday and today. I'm not out of the game... I'm just not quite sure I'm in it yet either. It's like I'm sitting in the dugout dressed and ready but am not playing yet. I'm working on it. :-/

I'm sorry you didn't have too good of a day/start...BUT what is important is that you logged it and you were honest about it. The ONLY way to get somewhere is to be honest with yourself.

When do you get home and when can you go shopping to set yourself up for success? I was actually in the store today, wanted to buy one of my FAVORITE crackers which are "healthy" but I didn't..because I can eat the whole box. It's just a set up for failure for me.

Panera soup isn't exactly enough for lunch anyway. Can you do the half soup and salad? I don't think you ate enough in the beginning of the day.

Tomorrow is a new day. I am going to push you to do this. Yes, it is all about getting your head in the game. Sometimes you have to force yourself when you are up to bat and the team is cheering for you.

I love broccoli cheddar soup. It's my favourite thing to order at Kelsey's.

Maybe a heavier lunch would have helped kick that Mcd's. I can't make as smart of food choices when I'm hungry either.
