Fastest way for a perfectly good plan to crash…. Poor planning.
The entire key to being able to successfully remain ‘sugar-free’ is good planning. Thanksgiving Day came and went with very little problem. I did have my treat and enjoyed a nice glass of wine but did not struggle much with the holiday goodies. I set at a table full of temptations and felt in control. This was a welcomed surprise.
Friday arrives and Scott and I began the Christmas decorating and cleaning marathon that lasted about 10 hours. Breakfast happened and the day started off fine. Hours later I ate an apple with peanut butter on the run. This was my poor attempt at my lunch. Snacks never happened much less I stayed so busy I never really had much water to speak of. By the time dinner time arrived our youngest was starving and Scott and I were beyond exhausted. Too tired to think clearly I recommend ordering a pizza and 35 minutes later it arrived hot and ready to eat. Two slices later I was on the couch disgusted at my poor planning. Saturdays run was not good at all and after 3 miles I was headed to the bathroom for you guessed it. Greasy pizza… not good.
So yesterday was a new day. Better planning and a better workout. Still did not take in the water I should have but honestly anything was better than the days before.
Lesson learned: Planning is everything!! It blocks any crashes that are sure to follow.
