Happy Friday everyone! It feels so great to actually have some time in the morning whereas being so rushed to get to school every morning by 7:15! I can actually sit and enjoy my breakfast without shoveling it in while watching the clock!! This morning I had my favorite again–-steel cut oats with banana and peanut butter. And a cup of coffee. I’m eating a pretty late lunch today (around 2) because I am going to a 12:00 bikram yoga class. I know that I will be having a snack in a few hours to keep me fueled up! Lunch will be whatever I can scavenge at my parent’s house and then dinner tonight is a suprise!! Even I don’t know!
About 370 calories…and I will be eating a snack later this morning!
I wanted to blog for a second on post-christmas eating guilt (or anytime for that matter!). Guys, I think one of the most important things we all have to learn is whatever happened last night or last week is in the past! Today is a brand new day and you can choose to do with it whatever you like. I don’t want to hear any of you ever beating yourself up for something that happened in the past because there is just no point—you can’t change it! The only thing you can do now is just go forward, exercise and eat right. And feel great!! I have been in many situations where I have either drank too much or eaten to much the night before and then (seriously) laid in bed all night long just beating myself up for drinking that milkshake or eating 2 desserts. The only thing that caused was dark circles under my eyes! This is the holiday season and all of us are only human doing the best we can. We all slip up from time to time. If you feel like you ate too much or had a little too much “fun”, then I suggest hitting the gym for a nice sweaty workout the next day. Its amazing how much better that will make you feel. And don’t get down on yourself–today is a new day!!!
