I wish in life that everything wasn't so all or nothing for me. If I know I have a lunch out with friends or co-workers and order something that may not be the best choice, instead of compensating for it, I just blow off the rest of the day. I end up eating more at my next meal. If I could just accept the fact that I didn't blow it, and that I could balance then I would be so much farther ahead.
Here are some things I can do to compensate for a meal out with friends -
1.) Exercise more that day.
2.) Choose light, filling meals with lots of vegetables for the other meals of the day.
3.) Be sure to really enjoy the meal with friends.
4.) Drink more water, especially at the meal.
5.) Take a longer walk with my dog that evening.
6.) Remember that one meal does not break my entire healthy life style.
This is one day at a time. All things can be evened out if the effort is made to do so. Nothing is all or nothing.
I will do this!
