I admittedly did not get off to a great start today, health/eating-wise:
Old habits, my friends… old habits. This morning I woke up after a loooong night of teething with Harlow (so tired) and grabbed a Chobani Blackberry Greek Yogurt out of the fridge to pair with a banana and some granola for breakfast. I realized that I never made it to the store yesterday to pick up some creamer (I know, I know) so I told myself I’d just stop quickly for a Starbucks. When I got there, almost as if just by habit, I also ordered a breakfast sandwich… aaaand a donut. A thousand calories later, there we were.
I could have let this dictate the rest of my day and have eaten all the things (like I normally would), or I could hit my internal reset button and make wise and healthy choices for the rest of the day.
So, at lunch I had to run and pick up diapers and a million dollars worth of other necessities, so while I was there, I peeped the deli salads and picked up this beauty for lunch.
Instead of grabbing a frozen, microwavable pizza and a pop (and something chocolate, because…reasons) like I normally would, this gave me some unplanned veggie power and a boost to my resolve. I still plan on having my yogurt, banana, and granola as a snack later if I get hungry, since salads usually don’t really hold me that well. I have no idea what’s for dinner, but hopefully, I’ve reset my thinking for the rest of the day.
(I really have to stop using my crappy phone to take all the pictures…)
Mistakes and setbacks are going to happen, because life happens, but if I don’t use them as an excuse to go crazy and eat super unhealthy, they will cease to be an issue.
Hope you all are having a great day!
What is your go-to lunch on the run?
When you start the day off on the wrong foot, do you use it as an excuse to overindulge the rest of the day?
