yup, I went over!

Saturday, January 30, 2010

I am human and I too had a less than optimal day.

I wanted to walk - way too cold and raw outside.

I did do 3 loads of laundry but that doesn't burn that many calories.

Then my Dad's dialysis location wouldn't stop bleeding and I just kept trying to stop it. I really hope I finally got it stopped without hurting him.

I guess it was a combination of things and I just got hungry. As I tell Ray, I have learned to feed the hunger. Tomorrow will be much better!

    Sometimes our natural instincts take over when we need to build up through food. After a fight or before one. Much like the mother that sleeps 18 hours prior to her giving birth.
I have no fear or worry for you, you will be just fine.
Love ya, Em emoticon

    Some days just aren't optimal. You do the best you can and don't worry. You have maintained beautifully.

    We all have those days, but the trick is to not let one day become days or weeks or a year of bad eating. In the past I have done didn't serve me well. Now I try not to roast myself when I have had too much to eat one day, but get back on track. Bottom line for me is the idea of eating what's good so I have the energy to do what I want and be healthy...

Hope you are doing prayers are with you.

    One day is ok, when you know you need to get back on track the next day. Some days are just like that. I'm sorry you had troubles.

    That you could even think about your food intake and write about it on a day like you had says a great deal about how far your progress has taken you. Most of us, (me, at least), have had multiple days in our pasts that spun us out of control for much longer than a day, and we didn't face the problem head-on as you just did. That sounds like a good place to me.

    You are so right....sometimes things happen and calories in is more than calories out. The thing about you is that you don't make it a habit. You are doing great!

    Thanks for sharing. You are a major inspiration to me and it helps to know that you are human. I know you'll be right back on it.

Are you your dad's caregiver? What a demanding job! And bleeding that doesn't stop sounds like about as stressful as it gets. Be extra kind to yourself. You deserve it!

Wishing your tomorrow is a wonderful day of healthy, delicious food and sparkling clear water and fun activity ---

    I know you will be right back on track tomorrow. No worries! Afterall - If we never slip up - we'd never realize how good we were the rest of the time.
