Because of a huge super giant thunderstorm with a hint of a tornado watch, I didn't get to go home for lunch today. So by the time the storm quieted and I was able to go to the post office (a part of my daily routine as an administrative assistant, but they were kind enough to not force me to go during the peak of the storm) I was starving.

And I stopped at Taco Bell for 2 fresco bean burritos. Yes, two. No, I probably wasn't hungry for the second one, and yes, I still ate it. Then I ate two squares of some delicious vegan dark chocolate that I found in my purse. So... not a superhero today!

But I'm not going to worry about it. I think that I made the best decisions that I could have in my situation. (Well, 1 burrito and 1 square of chocolate probably would have been better, but hindsight is always 20/20, right?)

Life happens. Rolling with the punches is something that I'm learning to do.

One of the biggest lessons that I'm trying to learn right now is to let go of my "all or nothing" attitude, particularly when it comes to food and exercise.

And in that, I excelled today, and am very proud of myself. :-)

remember, this is a kind way of life, so don't beat yourself down!

sometimes making the best life decisions you can is enough. No one is perfect. And almost anyone would have eaten the second one having already bought it. Just buy one next time ;)

Every once in a while I find myself at Taco Bell eating a Fresco burrito. It's cheap and it's quick and sometimes when life throws things your way that you didn't have just sometimes have to do what you can. At least it isn't a hambuger!

I'm so glad they have the fresco bean burrito so we don't have to ask for no cheese. Makes my life easier!
