I gave in. :(

Well folks, if you’ve come to this site today looking for inspiration and motivation, I’m afraid I’m going to let you down this morning. I blew it yesterday, I really did. I gave in. I succumbed to my cravings and went totally off my diet. I took Lisa out to eat yesterday afternoon and had fajitas, beans, rice, tortilla chips and salsa. I also had a margarita. To make matters even worse, I skipped my afternoon cardio session and drank Grey Goose on the rocks last night. I’m surprised I didn’t go running through the neighborhood naked, too. I mean, what in the hell happened?! One of my strongest personality traits is that I have incredible willpower, but I just couldn’t seem to stop myself yesterday. I guess I needed it, but I’m not going to sit here and make excuses. The bottom line is that it shouldn’t have happened, and I’m embarrassed by it. I feel like I let myself, my trainer and you all down. I know it’s just one day and all that, but that’s how I honestly feel right now so I’m speaking my mind.

Now that I’ve said my piece, there’s nothing I can do about yesterday. It’s done, over and history. I think it’s important to not let a bad day get you down, otherwise you’ll be more susceptible to letting a bad day turn into a bad week – or worse. Today I’m right back on the horse, and I’m going to work my butt off until I reach my goal.

Today is my measurement day, and I’m afraid that the numbers are skewed thanks to yesterday’s debauchery. Even though I look and feel pretty bloated, my scale weight did not go up. I’m down about a half-pound from last week, but every other measurement is exactly the same as last week, including my body fat percentage: 9.3% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall). I’m definitely holding some water, so I think next week’s apparent progress will be better than usual.

I’m going to go do my cardio now. I promise to behave myself today. Have a wonderful Sunday!
