Don’t eat the donuts at work.
If you must eat the donuts at work, only eat one.
If you eat more than one, don’t take that as an excuse to declare failure on your calorie budget and gorge yourself.
All right, so gorging myself is a bit hyperbolic. I mean, 380 calories over budget is still over budget, but it’s not obscenely over budget. It’s annoyingly over budget. But, to be perfectly honest, it was still better than I did over the holidays. Improvement is happening!
The greater struggle right now is my ongoing effort to remind myself that the reason I’m not exercising right now is because I spent the weekend laid up with a head cold. I need to make sure I’m recovered. But my brain is all like “you feel fine! Stop being lazy! Go work out!”
My brain hates me and wants me to suffer and die, I guess. Part of it, anyway.
So, the reminders to myself are:
- Don’t eat the donuts at work. Or, at least, don’t eat more than one.
- Rest and recover from being sick before exercising. Not wanting to relapse Ian being lazy.
Sounds like a good list to me.
