Today was one of those days.
One of those days when you eat too many peanut butter filled pretzels. Like about the whole 20-serving package.
One of those days where your only veggie source was the handful of spinach in your breakfast smoothie.
One of those days when you feel fat, ugly and out of shape.
One of those days when you just want to cry because you can’t go running because your knee hurts.
One of those days where you eat until you are so full it hurts and then you feel extremely horrible and guilty after. Like you need to go back on a 900-calorie-a-day diet.
Even though today was not a perfect day, I know that going on a 900-calorie-a-day diet will not fix things, but make them worse. I also know that, despite what is going through my mind today, I am not going to gain 5 pounds because I ate too much today. The only thing I can do is start fresh tomorrow.
I need to start eating salads on a daily basis. I need to stop snacking on pretzels, trail mix and peanut butter throughout the day because they just make me hungrier and I always eat way more than I should.
It’s hard to admit and talk about bad days, but they happen to all of us.
