A choice to overindulge...bad choice...but...

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Good morning friends!

It's so nice to see the sun! Susie, I'm thanking you for this, your goodie came and so did the sun!

I did get in Jillian's 30 Day Shred yesterday before I met my friend. We enjoyed our Syrian food, middle-eastern. I got the Vegetable platter which had hummus, and several other things I can't even begin to pronounce, but were all delicious!! There was lots of color, so I'm thinking it was fairly healthy! I had a small lemon bar for dessert because my friend had gone to the trouble to make them, it was yummy!

I made cauliflower soup for dinner, one of our favorites, and had 1/2 a "grilled" cheese sandwich (made with Pam Spray...and low-fat cheese). I thought I was done eating for the went like this...

So, I'm cuddled up in comfy sweats, watching a show, really tired, my dog starts barking her head's my brother-in-law and sister in law at the my husband comes upstairs and sheepishly admits he forgot to tell me they were coming over...he is KNOWN for doing this...but has been pretty good about letting me know at least a few hours ahead of time the past couple of months...

So after a couple of hours they leave...he gets out some dessert and I just dived right on in with him...BOOM there went the calories for the day! I KNOW I ate because I was frustrated with him!!! So why did I HURT MYSELF??? I should have just told him I was frustrated, why didn't I yell at him or something???? Because I'm a sweet, nice, loving, Christian wife and we aren't supposed to do that, right?..Shew...

Oh this eating thing is complicated, isn't it?

I did talk to him about it later. To be fair to him, and myself, I knew he'd had a rough day, blasting him wouldn't have made him feel any worse than he did about "messing up" with me already, he's pretty hard on himself as it is...

Besides, it's not like he shoved the goodie into my mouth, I made the decision to eat crud....a poor decision...a hasty decision...

So, today I'm brainstorming about ways to short-circuit this automatic eat to soothe response I have....I've already got strategies in place, the problem is when I'm really tired or upset strategies are the LAST thing on my mind! I think I'm going to put my Vision Collage on the refrigerator or pantry door....

I'm motivated to make today a great one, yesterday was ALMOST perfect! I'm focusing on what I did WELL yesterday!!

Thanks for reading! Make today a great one!

    Hey you!! Isn't it so crazy how we understand what we are doing...sometimes why we are doing it...we know we shouldn't do it...YET we do it anyway??? Boy, we are such weak flesh, lol... Well sweetie, you said it yourself "it's not like he shoved the goodie into my mouth, I made the decision to eat crud....a poor decision...a hasty decision...". I think it's awesome you are already plotting out different alternatives to deal with those times. We can never blame others for our choices...shoot, our choices are the only choices we truly have control of. Even though we understand other people's actions and choices may contribute to our actions and RE-ACTIONS, nonetheless we are only accountable for the choices we make....and yep, some choices arn't the best ones....I was writing on another friend's blog that I know that I can "talk" myself into procrastinating a workout...and I know that about myself so I need to constatanly be on guard for the "I'll just do it tomorrow" like you I've got to set up stratagies to avoid this "pesky little voice". You are pressing forward like so many of us, don't be did do well yesterday..we are such works in progress!! I'm glad you blog about your challenges because this is certainly real life:)

    Yes! Focus on the successes and the positive and I agree put the collage on the refridge door. It helps you and your DH realize there is a work in progress here. Mine loves sweets as well and thinks he is being loving by offering me "just one won't hurt you, you've been working so hard" routine!

    Personally, I think you are on the right track! It is a lifestyle afterall, right? emoticon emoticon emoticon
