The great thing about being healthy and running all the time is that you can afford to sometimes slip up and it’s not such a big deal (at least not physically, in your head…another story).
I had a bad day yesterday and like other humans, my emotions bled out into my choices. I only had one meal yesterday, dinner. Well, only one “proper” meal. For breakfast I had a frozen glazed donut and for lunch I had a bag of potato chips. Pinnacle of health and nutrition folks.
Stress does bad things to the body. I was wired yesterday and annoyed at work stuffs. Muscles in my arms were clenched for most of the day (I guess that’s a type of work-out) and I also lost my appetite.
The main point that I’m trying to make though is that I work hard and train hard for months and months. I am proud of my body and the blood, sweat, & tears that made it what it is. Is it good to take out your frustration on the world on your body via food. Nope. But can I afford to do this every once in a while… to slip up? Yes.
I can stumble. Just a matter of picking myself up again. I’m not as stressed out today and I’m looking forward to a run tonight. Enjoy the pavement.
