I'll Count That As A Lesson Learned..

Saturday, June 14, 2008

When I started this 90 Day journey I made a pledge to myself that I wouldn't drink any alcohol for 90 days.

Well...last night I broke that promise to myself. I had two BIG margaritas. About 12 ounces each. And BOY am I PAYING for it today.

I got online this morning and looked up the calories and was FLOORED!!!

For 24 ounces of Margarita it is a whopping 1,129 Calories!!!

That's almost my entire day's worth in two drinks!! I could have had 11 Coors Lights for that many calories!!(Not that I would have)

And of course I'm not feeling too hot today which means I won't be able to work out as hard as I need to...

I'll count this as a BIG lesson learned and move on from it..The old me would have said "oh well..I blew it might as well blow it bigtime!!"

The new me will just go on from this and do better from here on out. I know I'm not perfect, and that sometimes we all slip up and the only thing you can do is pick yourself back up and keep going.

So..I'll take my day off today, instead of tomorrow. Tomorrow I'll get back on my exercise plan and do a little extra to make up for it.

    wow! didn't know that margueritas "cost" that much in calories. I'm not much for drinking alcohol, but i do like margueritas.

    thanks for sharing!
