Easter is perhaps my favorite time of year, and as a worship leader, it’s also one of my busiest times of the year (Christmas being the other). And let me go on the record as saying that Easter is one of the most difficult days to stay on a diet.
You don’t want to know how many calories worth of food I consumed yesterday. You don’t. And if you do, I won’t tell you.
We all stumble from time to time when trying to lose weight. Personally, I’m past the point of giving up over one bad day. Sometimes, I think, you have to recognize that particular days – like holidays – are going to be difficult. But those days are still to be enjoyed, so don’t stress over it. Do the best you can and get back on track the next day.
I ate too much yesterday – though I never felt stuffed – but this morning, I got up at 5:10 a.m. and jogged 2.2 miles, just like I do every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Yes, yesterday set me back a little, but that doesn’t mean my journey is over.
How do you cope with these kinds of days? What helps you get back on track after a stumble? Let me know in the comments.
