Poor Morning Choice #1
For some reason I chose to whip out the dry shampoo and not shower. Now I know showering daily isn’t good for your hair or some shit but my routine is to shower every morning (even if I showered at 9pm the night before like I did on Monday).
I’m pretty confident in my 5 years at my job I’ve never gone in without showering…why I chose that yesterday is just a mystery.
Poor Morning Choice #2
I chose to not drink my Trim Tea that takes 1 minute in the microwave and about 30 seconds to drink if need be (more at the end of this on Trim Tea**).
Poor Morning Choice #3
I stopped at Dunkin and got coffee. Now does that make sense? I have time to go to the drive thru for coffee but NOT spend 2 minutes on my Trim Tea before I leave the house?
Also, I know if I get a coffee in the morning that is recipe for not drinking water until at least noon and resulting in me being dehydrated at the end of the day.
Poor Choice #4
Instead of having my fruit that I packed for my morning snack I went to the vending machine and got a giant cookie (520 calorie cookie to be exact).
Blaming my lack of Trim Tea on this one since it curbs cravings…
Poor choices leading to more poor choices at its prime.
Poor Choice #5
I worked until 7pm and chose to order Qdoba instead of coming home to the vegetarian curry Derek and I prepped for the week for my dinners since he won’t be home (intentially planned so I wouldn’t eat out every night…we know I don’t cook)
Poor Choice #6
Instead of coming home and working on my three personal goals for the day (which included a blog post and meditation). I binged watched Netflix and ate my dinner in bed until I fell asleep.
I’m confident that my only sound decision yesterday was to not add a nice glass of wine (or two) into the mix. Mostly because I’m cheap and decided I shouldn’t buy Qdoba AND wine…
BUT, as crappy as my decisions were yesterday, the good news is they were all CHOICES. Choices that I decided to make for myself. Just as I made those poor decisions yesterday, today I chose to be kind to myself.
Breakfast- Avacado Toast
Morning Snack- Fruit & Almond
Lunch- Vegetarian Curry & Green Tea
Afternoon Snack- Protein Bar & Vitamin D
Chores- Laundry, Dishes, Cat Boxes and Fed Derek’s Fish (you can come home now…)
Water Goal- 80oz
It’s funny how much better you feel and the energy you have when you just be kind to yourself. I challenge you to be kind to yourself and be fully aware of the choices you make big or small and how they impact other decisions you make throughout your day/week.
