I fought the food and the food won...

Yesterday was an awful food day for me. I mean the worst I have had in a long long time. I felt guilty all day about having TWO cupcakes ( I am sharing this because I need to be held accountable for my actions) My co-worker/friend Callista makes the most amazing brownie s'more cupcakes, like better than Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker combined. My chocolate craving won the battle and I overindulged.

 I justified my actions by repeatedly telling myself "tonight is one of my longer workouts, I'll burn the extra cals off. I don't do this all the time, it's okay. I ate them early which is the best time to eat the bad foods." Talk about excuses!!

Then as I was getting ready to head out of work, gym bag in hand I got the bad news.

                                        The trains were suspended.

I wasn't going to make my class, I wasn't going home until who knows when. They closed Penn Station and I was stuck with hundreds of others.

So what did I do?

Found the nearest bar and drank 2 bud lights. By myself. Then I met up with my cousin who works a few blocks away and was also stranded and we went to Stout(another bar). There I had another beer and we ordered food....

                                    Wings and spinach & artichoke dip.

 Which was totally justified because we were stuck in NYC and everyone knows there are no healthy eateries in the city. DUH! 

Fast forward 4 hours and 3 trains later...we ended up in Long Beach and while waiting for a ride we discovered Tutti Fruiti--the most heavenly frozen yogurt bar on Long Island if I do say so myself. I treated myself to the smallest size they offered but at that point I was so over my caloric limit for the day it didn't even matter. So I had 2 flavors and 2 toppings::one consisted of cheesecake bites.

I am sure most of you are reading this and saying, "isn't this blog about a healthy lifestyle and eating healthy?" And the answer is Yes but the truth is shit happens and I am sharing it with you so you don't feel bad the next time you have a day or a few days like this.

   So this morning the trains were STILL not running on my line (of course) so what did I do? Woke up and got my booty in the gym. Cranked out a good 1.5 hr workout and I will be going back tonight for round 2.Every now and then there will be bad days, it's how you make up for them that matters. I am pretty embarassed with myself BUT I am not pretending it didn't happen and I am making today 200% better for it.

Thanks for this post! I think it might be one of the most important you've posted thus far. It is sooo real! People who try to commit themselves to healthy lifestyles often have a day like you had yesterday. And I don't mean only the LIRR but the caloric intake, guilt etc. Your message is an important one. Guilt is natural but just like with life everyone has slip ups and makes mistakes. Its realizing your mistake and turning it around. Good job!

Also, black bean and corn salad is my faveeee. Yum!!

i agree with JenniferLeigh, cupcakes are great esp when Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker make them together!
