Yesterday at my Weight Watchers meeting (which I'm going to call WW from now on if you don't mind), we talked about flipping a slip up. You know those times where you just mess up. It could be at work or at home or with bills or with your diet or exercise. Everybody does it, but what really matters is what you do to come back from your slip up. Well, I'll tell you what. After that meeting, I went to Wendy's and I got the new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger. And it was amazing. But I only got the burger (mainly because I didn't understand the drive through guy). So after I got home, and ate the burger, while watching Dirty Jobs, I was still hungry. Did I grab a peach from the fruit bowl that was literally three feet above my head? Did I fill up my tervis with water because I wasn't really hungry I was actually hella thirsty? Did I snack on the delicious mushrooms in my fridge just waiting to be consumed? No, I didn't do any of those things. I in fact put shoes on, got in my car, drove to Sonic and got a small Hot Fudge shake and an order of mozzarella sticks. Because damn it, I wanted to. And I'll tell you what, after the raging headache I had had all day yesterday, a shake and cheesy fried things really hit the spot. But was it worth it? Probably not. I've been tired all day, and I overslept this morning, making me late for work. Luckily it wasn't a big deal at all. Plus eating crap yesterday made me crave crap today. I had a salad for lunch, but then I went down to the vending machine and got a bag of Chili Cheese Fritos and a Twix. And I ate them. All the while looking at the peach I packed going, I should be eating you right now. So what am I going to do to flip this slip? Well I'll tell you. I'm going to eat pork chops and roasted broccoli and cauliflower for dinner. I'm going to go to the gym and not let the machines intimidate me into thinking I can't conquer them. I'm GOING to drink water at my house. And then I'm going to get up tomorrow (on time) and start all over again. Own it, and move on.
