Crashed and Burned Yesterday

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Bleck! That is how my day was yesterday. So, let's get this over with:


Breakfast: 2 DD doughnuts and 2 mini milky ways

Snack: 6 Triscuts and 1 slice cheese

Lunch: Ham, green beans, bread, butter, chips

Snack: Bottle of chocolate milk

Dinner: 2 BIG helpings of fried chix, rice a roni

Dessert: (not earned mind you!!!) scoop of Ben and Jerry's with whipped cream

I was just in a funk all day and couldn't wait for the day to end. I didn't like that I had to work at a different office yesterday (despite I do that EVERY Tuesday afternoon) and had to wait a hour for my RX at Target. Oh, and my hockey team lost last night in a shoot out. Gosh, just a hard day in the life of Jen (eye roll and insert sarcasm). I did sneak in some ST during work, so I did get my workout in.

All in all a craptastic day for me.

Today is looking better. I'm eating right, I have a scheduled run, we are cleaning the house tonight and giving the dogs a bath. I'm more aware today, that I need to be thankful for everything in my life and not be so boo-hoo about stupid crap.

My reward for all that done will be having my co worker put on a nice set of nails for me.

Sometimes, I feel a little burnt out from tracking food, water and working out. I'm not obsessing as much which is good, but sliding off track yesterday was kinda.......liberating. Granted, I still wrote everything done and snuck in a workout, but it was refreshing to just eat what I want.


It didn't help my craptastic day. I still felt crappy, slow and tired. It didn't help me at all and I'm pretty sure if I stepped on the scale, it would be a good two pound gain.

Shockingly, food didn't help me feel better. Eating my feelings didn't do me any good. I thought I was treating myself by letting me eat what I want, when I want......but it just made it worse.

Lesson learned.......again! And I'll probably have to learn it again at some point as well!

Thanks for listening to me complain about nonsense and thanks for the support!

    I'm having that day today. I'll try to pull myself out of it and get on the right track!

    I think we ALL have days like that. Good job on making an important realization that eating your feelings didn't really help at all! Also, good job on the mental reset and making today a better day! You can do it!!!

    Every few months, I take a week off.

    I don't take the week of everything though, basically, I keep up with Spark, and tracking my food until dinner time. I don't workout like normal, I will walk the dogs, but that's about it.

    I find it lets me regroup, make changes if I need to and I get my motivation back. I will admit that 1st workout is usually a killer, but I feel better about it.

    Must have been in the air yesterday Jen. I had a similar day - cheeseburger & fries for lunch, stuffed crust pizza for dinner. Why? Crappy weather, crappy time at work, etc.

    Like you, I wrote it all down. Also realized it didn't help my day at all, and I really felt sluggish last night.

    We all have to learn to be kind to ourselves on this journey. If we eat something we know we don't really need, at least we recognize it and get back on track!

    Have a good one!

    Jen, we can't always have days when we shoot butterflies and rainbows out of our a$$. We all have our down days and I was in a mood yesterday too so you are not alone (safety in numbers, ya know). Wishing you those butterflies and rainbows today though!

    At least your not allowing the 'craptastic' day to unhinge your entire week. Hang in there-- I hope today is better for you. And way to go getting a ST workout in there and realizing the food didn't make your emotions better. You're doing amazing! Keep up your positiveness and you'll be there in not time!
