Willpower FAIL

Epic. Epic fail.

I had done so well today! I made Breakfast Pizzas, light on the cheese. I had a yogurt before going to down. I'd had 1 water bottle.

On the way home from town, I wanted to stop and get a mocha frappe from McDonalds. Which, by itself, wasn't the best idea. Then I found myself ordering a small french fry and a 10 piece chicken nugget.

Willpower FAIL. On all accounts. Ugh.

So now I'm feeling yucky, and so guilty. Ugh.

Tomorrow's a better day. We'll be going out for most of it (and it's so hard to eat well in town!), but I'm going to make smarter choices. I will.

My friend Tammy made a new years resolution last year to only eat fast food if they went IN the restaurant. They could get drinks at the drive-thru, but no food. I honestly think this is something I'm going to adopt. Because this is ridiculous.

And I'm still determined to get my water intake up today. 17 ounces so far. I found an awesome app on my iPod touch called "Waterlogged" that'll let me keep up with how many ounces I've had. AWESOME! This will really help, I think, I hope, I pray.

1. 2. 3. GO!


  1. Aw, don't give yourself too hard of the time. The McD's order was not the best idea, but it is over. Do your best to bulk up on veggies and low-fat items for dinner tonight, that is one small thing to make a difference. :)

  2. Yay for getting healthy!

    When i was trying to up my water intake I was trying to do 80 ounces a day and I accomplished this by setting out the appropriate number of water bottles on the counter. If I can see it i am more likely to do it because I really dont ever think about drinking. As the day went on I felt more accoplished as the water bottles disappeared off of the counter. In the beginning I would also set a timer to remind myself that I needed to drink since I would get so involved in what I was doing and would for get about it.

  3. I am trying to up my water intake, too, Thank you for the inspiration! Hang in there....I sent you an email last week--wasn't sure if it got through or not.
