However, later on in the evening while Mike and I were catching up on The Office and 30 Rock, I grabbed that bag of cookies and polished them right off! Probably close to another 400-500 calories. Eek! Now, this may not seem like a big deal to some of you, my dear readers, so please, laugh if you will. It's ok; you won't hurt my feelings. :)
I purposely didn't record the extra calories in my food diary. My ego mind came on strong with an onslaught of excuses, "Those calories just don't count if I don't face up to them", was the general gist. For those of you on your own fitness journey, I'm sure you can relate to the various and sundry excuses that ran through my head as I sat there eating the extra cookies and not recording them.
And, as much as I may say to myself today: it was a one-off, it's over, it's in the past, it's a new day, fresh start, and as much as those statements are absolutely true, I feel that today I also must confess this moment of "weakness", so as to prevent it from becoming habit again.
To those of you who read this and have supported me throughout this journey, and, most importantly, to myself, I hereby vow to record everything that crosses my lips, whether I stay on track or I "cheat", like last night. Ego, defied. Now, off to work out. <3
