A Bad Day

Yesterday was a very bad day for my CR. The first really bad day I've had all year, and I am as petulant as a child about it. I guess I can write it up to experience and try not to let it happen again, but I can see it very easily happening again on similar occasions - ie, when I am in London, socialising in an evening, and when that socialising is predominantly wine tasting (which is something I am very interested in and do not want to give up). The bulk of my calories yesterday probably came from alcohol. :-(

I tried to eat well during the day - berry breakfast; a cannellini bean and vegetable soup from Luscious Organic on Kensington High Street with some broccoli I grabbed from M&S and microwaved (never again), 100g mango, a banana, a small pot of soya yoghurt, 12 (!!) almonds over the course of the day. But I met friends in a pub before the tasting, and we drank wine there. At the tasting I took one sip from most of the glasses and tipped the rest (we are only talking about 1oz pours here), but a couple of them I finished. The worst of it was knowing that I was getting hungrier and hungrier, despite hoarding the carrot sticks that were on the table and having a little hummus as well. So when we left the tasting I was ravenous, and when we got home I was so cross with being ravenous that I drank another glass of wine, and I shouldn't have done that. Finally ate tofu and stir-fried vegetables (with mushrooms) and edamame at midnight.

I guess it's not really so bad when I write it down. But I feel a bit of a failure today.

Don't worry about it! One day in an entire month is not bad, not bad at all!

No need to dwell on a so-so day (you ate well for 75 percent of it..that's not so bad really)...it's a journey and a path.. not to worry. You wrote about it and it's been released. Today is a new day (actually you are already into it half way by now.)
Time to move on. Go read Mary R's posting. It's beautiful and inspiring.


Take care

Oh Sara :)
don't worry too much ... as you said - it wasn't that bad. And if makes you feel better, I blew it yesterday too - tho I went wild with sweets not cocktails.

Sara,

It's the wine that gets me too. I'd much rather drink wine than have a dessert or whatever. In fact, I was reading yesterday thinking, "I want to go to the wine tasting!"

In fact, now I really feel like popping into town to go to my favorite wine bar. I should really be giving you helpful suggestions, but instead I am thinking of a glass of wine.

Okay, will write something more helpful later. Meanwhile, don't worry about it.

Your picture is beautiful, btw!

That sounds like a pretty wimpy bad day if you ask me. As I was reading I kept expecting your choices to get worse, but it never really got that bad! Ending the day with veggies? Virtuous!

Next time, I expect better, and by that I mean worse! Just kidding :)

Have a great weekend.
