What's Your Excuse. . . .

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

So I got up early & meditated & read the Word as I do on daily basis. I did my yoga & kickboxing workout, I'm getting my walking done in spurts here at work. Now my problem is, I ate cookies for breakfast! HUH! WHAT?! I know, I know, I finally got over the crook, it still aches but I can't go heavy on the weights yet but I'm doing well. So why for the life of me, did I buy the cookies & why did I have 2 Keebler Fudge Stripes for breakfast with a tall glass of milk? Yes, I do eat cereal for breakfast but I wanted cookies. So what was my excuse? Well I won't eat anything else for breakfast but then I gobble down 3 donut holes. YIKES! I did leave some in the box, okay but still. If I can exercise my mind & my body, why can't I for the life of me exercise self-control? I have pondered of this for the last couple of weeks. Some times I don't have to have anything sugary, then BAM! I load up on the sugary carbs. So my question to my Sparkfamily today, what is your excuse for over-indulgence or not working out?

Did you see that I did do 30mins of yoga & 50mins of Kickboxing & almost done with my 30mins of walking so does that justify me? NO!

God bless & Enjoy Tuesday!!

    TOM- I want to eat everything in sight. I also get cravings for a sweet/salty mixture. It happens, just have to get over it. No one person is perfect all of the time.

    Have a wonderfully blessed Wednesday.

    We all slip from time to time Dee, don't beat yourself up about it. You worked out like carzy in the morning and probably needed some carbs, like someone else said. Keep up the emoticon work! you are doing Great! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like me about once a week or two. But I would chose chocolate-dark if I can find it. Now I want a donut hole - haven't had one of those in years.

    Glad you're feeling better. emoticon

    I too get sugar cravings and I just give into them right then and there because if I don't I will just go way overboard at a later time. I find it's better for me that way. I don't feel guilty about it. I just continue on doing the next right thing. I am not perfect and I think that it's fine to indulge occasionally and it it's at 8 am - so be it.

    You my friend, workout SO much, that if I were you, I wouldn't even think twice. But, we are all different. Hmmmmm - guess I'm not much help - huh????? lol

    If you did all that before breakfast, you probably really needed the carbs. Like right now! emoticon
    At least that is my problem, I over work, more than my usual, then I want to eat to catch up.

    Personally, I think it's FINE to have cookies for brekkie once in awhile. I had 1/2 a candy bar the other day because I was really craving it. I put the other half in my glove box of my car, for next time I have a craving. I am absolutely not forbidding any foods. I am so proud of you for how great you are doing!!!!!

    First I just want to say, congrats on being 11 pounds from your goal, that's FANTASTIC! It sounds like for the most part you stay on track, and sometimes it's okay to have a little extra.

    This wasn't a binge though, you probably had a serving of each of those bad bad things. Would the old you have just had 2 cookies and 3 donut holes? Or would you have eating half the package and left no survivors in the box? Pay attention to your progress because it's great!

    Don't get down on yourself, excuses happen. Tomorrow try and make sure to make something a bit healthier, maybe some cereal with blueberries instead of cookies and donuts :)

    I can't help you because I do the same thing. I'll be doing great and then mindlessly I'll just have to have a chocolate bar or brownie, both of which are my downfall. Let me know if you get any answers.
