To Forgive is Divine…today started off great with an orange juice and real strawberry smoothie for breakfast, but when I got to work; I still wanted “breakfast.” I went and got a pancake and an egg. Then for lunch I had a huge nacho supreme. Who knows how many calories were in that. I felt so bad; I knew I had to work out. The whole first 5 minutes of my walk, I beat up myself about my poor food choices….then I said you know what, when Kay Quinn asked me about the most important lesson learned, I said “talking back to the negative thoughts,” so that’s just what I did. I told myself no matter what you do; you can’t UN-eat the freaking nachos. Get over it, forgive yourself! So I picked up the pace to my usual jog and finished my 5K (3.1 mile) Run. I finished in a little under an hour. If I wasn’t throwing a pity party in the beginning, I might have beat my official race time…oh well there’s always next time. I made much healthier choices at dinner and had a chicken salad and my fave, a cold glass of Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. Oh, wait, I can’t forget to mention, I left behind the 2 cousins who “had” to watch the American Idol finale…although, even after my 3 mile run, and I still caught the last hour and a half!
