Whew! That was close!

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Today was a day FULL of potential pitfalls. emoticon emoticon

1. We had goodies in the break room at work.
2. We had an event at work and there were goodies at that....
3. I went to a concert tonight and there were goodies there too.

home made goodies. sigh. emoticon

i can pass up store bought, but home made? that's tougher. emoticon



it was hard, but i did it. emoticon

I made it through an entire week without junk food, and mostly wheat free. emoticon

Whew! emoticon

Goodnight Sparklers emoticon

~ Limiting "sweets" - (i did have my small gluten free banana-oatmeal-choc chip muffins).
~ 561 days in a row of walking. emoticon
~ 7-9 freggies per day emoticon
~ working hard with the Physical Therapy and making progress!
~ havent eaten between meals at all.

    Way to go, being back on the path. And being strong when facing evil. Seems there are always goodies to tempt us, and we all have something that is our kriptonite. emoticon emoticon

    Drink lots of water and do something else to distract yourself. Your urge is just neurological junk floating in your brain. Your mind can overcome it.

  For the sake of your tomorrow self, don't do it. Drink a big glass of water, brush your teeth, take a walk, do deep breathing, read through past blogs of success.

PS: I can't believe how many SparkPoints you have! Wow!

    Don't do it! I did and I am so miserable. You do not want to feel like this. The worst part is that is was so not worth it. Success tastes so much better than sugar!!! I should've reminded myself of that

full disclosure

Saturday, November 08, 2014

yesterday i blogged about a NSV and it definitely was one.

and then.....

i went out to an event an ate about 12 (or more?!) cookies!!!! emoticon (they were delicious)
i was out of control. it was stress eating of a different sort. i was having a good time. surrounded by good people. enjoying good music. but, i still ate out of stress. and compulsion.

so, while i was happy i didnt eat the bread yesterday - i couldnt hold on to that feeling once i got to the fundraiser.

one of these days i will have an entire day of good eating!!!!!!!!

Happy Saturday, Sparklers! emoticon

    It happens to all of us!! I like what Fimalya says that most of us take a zig zag road to success. And so true!! We fall off the proverbial horse we just have to get back on!! Hubby and I were in Chicago last Friday and it was cold and snowy and we stopped in a coffee shop for coffee to warm up and hubby got himself something called an autumn cookie. I had a few bites of it and told myself it was okay because it was basically an oatmeal cookie with raisins and dried cranberries plus we had done a lot of walking. I had all kinds of excuses. emoticon

Today is a new day!!! Another NSV is in the cards for you!! I can see it!! I am psychic!! emoticon Actually just betting that you will do better today!!!

    Very few people can just wake up one day - decide to eat healthy - and do it. Most of us take a zig zag road to success.

It's a learning experience. Did eating those cookies feel good - past the few minutes it took to consume them? I'm guessing not. So remember that next time you feel the urge to eat sweets. As you keep at it - it will get easier.

    It happens. Hope today is a day on track for you. It's not easy.

Report Inappropriate Comment

    I've done that. Chalk it up to a learning experience. Maybe analyzing it a little would help figure out what was compelling you. The forbidden fruit? Social anxiety?
Celebratory overeating? You didn't eat the first cookie mindfully?

a definite NSV!

Friday, November 07, 2014

i had a very stressful day at work. emoticon
i came home to more stress. emoticon

there was a bit of bread on the table (I LOVE BREAD with LOTS of BUTTER)

I reached for it and then said "NO".

I couldnt say no to the the M&M's today, but i said no to the bread so i consider that a pretty big VICTORY!

Thank you, Sparklers.

    Well done!! Lucky for me that I do a lot of exercising an require bunches of carbs. Thus, the bread is OK for me.

    Congrats on saying no to the bread and butter! That's one of my big weaknesses, too, so I appreciate how hard it was for you to pass up. Keep making good choices! You're on your way!

    It is hard not to binge on something when you are stressed. Still working on it here.
