Ugh, What is wrong with ME??? (Pics)

Sunday, September 25, 2011

It's official weekends are BAD when it comes to self control. I'm so frustrated because I'm always telling my DH and DS how important self control is in all aspects of life right? I feel like I can't even follow my own advice!!

So Friday night we went to a wedding, I was thrilled to fit into a size 8 dress, I decided to eat a light supper before going since I knew the food at the reception was not going to be very healthy. Well needless to say I should have skipped my light supper because I ended up eating at the wedding (very small portions) but still talk about lack of self control!!

I also knew I would probably have 1 or 2 alcoholic beverages Well I had 3!!! Yikes!!

Again where is my self control????

So that was Friday. Yesterday (Saturday) We went to the colorado rapids soccer game, again I know stadium food is not always the greatest when trying to lose weight, so I made delicious veggie burgers for us to eat before the game. Well I still ended up eating a hot dog and had a beer

Ughhhh what is wrong with me????
Is it normal to feel this way?
Will I ever have the self control I so often preach about?

    Remember, there are times where you just have to give your body what it craves. You are doing super so you need to reward yourself every so often. I just tend to reward myself way too often! Don't be so hard on yourself.

    I'm sure you already know the answer to your question. There is NOTHING wrong with you. You may be setting yourself up for failure. Weddings are for enjoying and celebrating. Games are for cheering and hot dogs. Let those events be what they are and accept that you will join the fun. Then get back on track when you return to you regular life. There are some things that SHOULD be controlled with tools and strategies. For example, I had difficulties with alcohol and had to get help. That is a ritual I no longer entertain. But..........there are so many times in life that self control is unnecessary. Isolated events and happenings in our lives are to be enjoyed. They don't happen every day and putting high expectations on ourselves at these times is unnecessary and defeating.

Be nice to yourself. You sound like you have made great progress towards good health and try to model good values for your family. Take it from a recovering perfectionist, it is permissible to be human.

With much encouragement,
Leslie emoticon

No more double digits! DH said the dress looks great!:-) well that's all for now:-)

Ok so its Friday morning again, this week went by sooooo fast. I did well on the eating side of things but not so much on the workouts!! I have been reading some blogs where fellow sparkers have sore achy muscles, I want that!! I want to really push myself, back when I started this journey I had days where I could hardly move after a great workout. Now not so much emoticon. I think its time for the Jillian Micheals DVD's again! Today I will go to my Zumba class!


Tuesday Update!!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

So the past few days have been kind of busy so I had not posted a blog. I over ate during the weekend emoticon Monday I had a long brisk walk, and today I totally did not work out. Tommorow I will go to the gym right after I take DS to school. I am beggining to feel a bit frustrated, the weight is just not coming off fast enough emoticon My clothes are fitting much better but the scale is just NOT moving!! Must be patient!


Great Friday Zumba,Denver Broncos,Grocery Shopping

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Yesterday was a great day! I went back to my Zumba class right after taking DS to school, I had not been there in a few weeks! It was awesome although I was very aware of my lack of rythym lol. Then I went grocery shopping I got healthy stuff and stayed within my budget!! I went for a walk after lunch the weather was excellent! In the evening there was a Denver Broncos Pep Rally and although I dislike the broncos we went as DH and DS are fans and wanted to go. My sister came with us she is also a huuge broncos fan. They got autographs and pictures. Gorgeous sunset in the middle of Downtown Denver!
