Usually, once I make one bad food choice it leads to another bad choice: not to exercise. Tonight was a test of breaking that habit. My husband and kids really wanted to eat Chinese food which for me is a bad choice. I love the food at our local Chinese restaurant but not anything on the menu that is healthy. The kids and I like to split the orange chicken dish three ways. You know that is still a lot of food at these restaurants.
Ok, so I made a bad food choice and I was already thinking that I might as well skip working out. I had blown the day, right? I was flip-flopping the choice in my head on the drive home. I ate way too many calories, so why bother.
But...after much debate in my head I decided to workout. Yes, I made a bad food choice but that didn't mean I had to make another bad choice. It took a strong pep talk from myself to change into my workout clothes and just do it! I was so proud of myself for making a good choice that I stepped up the intensity of my workout :)
