Day 2: Rest Day Already? Yes, yes / by Rattaya Nagorski

No, I didn't give into my laziness already! But my food, however...

I really need to be ok with working out by myself. I work with my workout buddies, besides my husband Eddie, and trying to coordinate workout times can be a bit scattered. Then it just so happens that Day 2 becomes a rest day for me this week. It's just scheduling conflict, but ok, I can workout by myself if I must after today.

Rest day can certainly equals to bad eating day. But I'm trying to keep my eyes on the prize here! But as the picture suggests, I had a slice of apple pie...and a cookie. But I stayed within calories!!

That's the thing: I keep thinking if I stay within calories, that should be ok. But I need to shake that off.  Just because I'm staying within the limit, it doesn't mean I'm eating nutritious food. C'mon, apple pie AND a cookie? I knew it was a bad move, but my mind kept thinking: just stay within the calorie limit! Stay within it! 

Bad thinking. What the heck was I doing? I made a commitment to myself, and it's already bad. I took a workout rest day, but it shouldn't have meant indulge in old habits. Reboot, Oaky, reboot!
