April 28th, 2017 A Win

April 28th, 2017 A Win

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with super support. That's a win!

A midday location broadcast until 1pm made for a late lunch--and I wasn't prepared. I normally keep a package of almonds or an apple handy, but not today. It wasn't a big deal, but it was a small circumstance when I started feeling hungry and the offers of free food keep coming. I picked up my phone and shared the circumstance with support contacts, reminded myself that lunch wasn't too far away, and I headed straight to my "plan approved" favorite Mexican restaurant immediately after the broadcast.

I didn't feel too much at risk because the items being offered would have required a complete jump off the wagon, over the cliff, and onto the canyon floor below. But with that written, I do know for a fact if the right combination of elements came together, I'd make that leap. Being prepared with a plan was/is/always will be my greatest defense. I can limp forward with a couple of out of sync plan elements, like a delayed lunch, but Lord have mercy if I ever assemble the "right" combination. 

I visited with mom a little while before going back to work tonight to wrap up some production I wasn't able to finish earlier today. I'm hoping we dodge the weather we're expecting overnight.

Today's Accountability Tweets:

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Still faithfully reading your daily blogs. You did a good job of avoiding the bullet of that combination foods that are known to break the "bands" that hold our plan togather!

  2. Have you ever read Dr. Judith Beck's book "The Beck Diet Solution"? If not, I highly recommend. One of the exercises is on practicing hunger tolerance by purposely skipping a meal. You learn that you CAN skip a meal without it becoming a disaster. Having that knowledge has saved me on a few occasions. Good job on handling the situation. Keep up the good work.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
