I am Not very good at this....

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

blogging thing!!! Just call me inconsistent but I find it hard to come here and write about my days sometimes. It seems to me to be trivial but then I read other blogs and people seem to be having some of the same trials and tribulations, cravings, the scale is misbehaving, my clothes are tired and don't look as I would like them etc etc...

Today I had a wonderful day off, I did nothing....absolutely nothing at all. Well I did eat, healthy for the most part. I tracked here on Spark and I played on the computer a bit. I got out for a walk in the drizzly rain, not my favourite way to walk but necessary for the greater good right!

Went out with the girls for dinner and a movie, tried to behave with my meal, had a glass of white wine, Appelia a lovely greek white wine and had lamb with horitiki (sp?) village salad to some. I did not eat the wrap that was around the lamb. Ok so I am doing pretty good and then we get to the movies, I usually do well there, never bother with the concession stand ever. Silly me decides that I should have some popcorn, WHY????? I don't me, it is salty, tastes vile and I ate the whole darn least it was a small bag. I will be swelling up like a beach ball overnight, tomorrow I will have to drink copious amounts of water to counteract the effect of the large dose of sodium my poor body is not used to.

So I guess this is one reason why we blog, to get our "sins" off of our chests! I feel a little better confessing here, it does not negate the fact I consumed those calories and all that salt and fat but at least I know now what a dumb move it was! Lesson learned, stay away from the concession stand at the movie theatre, consider this your lesson for the day! ;)

  It's your new found friend Divinediva5. I love the blog and like you I am not consistent but I am starting to understand that it can be helpful to see others in the same boat as myself. I am not alone (GOD promised that) but I forget that sometimes.

Love your spunk for life and when I grow up (actually when I can retire) I want to be just like you (I saw those wonderful pics). Between my mother and you I don't know who is the most adventurous but I do know, I am following both sets of those foot prints. emoticon

    You are not alone. I have a hard time blogging, especially when I end up with limited time to write.
The popcorn thing, I am sure you are not alone. You recognize what you did and are working to counteract it. Keep smiling, it will work out.

    Hey, you're on your way...blogging is all about reflection. What we did that works or DIDN'T work! Mistakes are opportunities for learning and it sounds like that's exactly what you did: learned an important lesson!

Popcorn & movies...powerful American past time! Not easy to buck that trend! But an OH-SO-WORTHWHILE habit to KICK! :-)
