I've never been perfect - and I'm still not.

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Late in the evening I screwed up. I got into the peanut butter. My nemesis. I felt awful as soon as I was done. In the middle of the night I woke up and realized that I was stressed about life at home and what I was going to do. I was hurting a bit and made myself hurt more.

I'll be damned if that old habit is coming back. Me. The couch. A jar of peanut butter and a spoon. I realized where it came from. Said 'enough' again and moved on. I refuse to beat myself up for stuff like this because I am learning, starting anew. A different pathway. Yes I went over my calories for the day. Oh well. 2 Tbsp of peanut butter is not going to wreck anything. Its just 2 Tbsp of peanut butter. I am worth more than that.

    Sometimes we have to give in to a craving. Please don't beat yourself up - it's not like you ate the whole jar!

    oh I Love that peanut butter too. In anything, on anything, even just the spoon. I do treat myself about once a week with a chocolate rice cake with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on it. Boy is that good. Like a big reese cup. Great job stopping at 2 tbsp. I'm sure that says a lot. Good for you!! Move on you shall.

    Hehe, I'm with Ecoage on the 2 Tbsp really not being a big screw up. I remember spoon and peanut butter jar equating to half the jar gone before I stopped scooping. And I wasn't even eating out of emotions or stress - just snacking non-stop.

emoticon on recognizing the root cause and making the decision to forgive yourself and move forward!

    2 tablespoons does not a trend make. Good for you for recognizing that!

  And you got some protein and some "good" fat!!

And a lesson--don't ever forget that!

I like my peanut butter with brown sugar--so it could have been worse, if you were me!!

Make today yours.

Here's to "100 days of summer." emoticon

    Do you really think 2 tablespoons of peanut butter = screwing up? Do NOT beat yourself up.
