Job news and confession

Monday, July 02, 2012

I accepted a position that will give me a 10% raise in another office. I'm excited but also don't really want to leave my office either. My boss is rallying to see if they can match the pay but it has to get approval from a higher up who is out due to a death in the family. So I'm in waiting mode until the end of this week.

So between that stress and waiting, AF on her way, and the derby stress, I kinda let go this weekend. I didn't work out. I barely did housework. But I did EAT! Boy, did I ever!

I didn't want to track it but decided that was probably the best reason to track. So I did. *cringe* I had three days of 3,000+ calorie intake. I ate every sweet thing in my house, drank more alcohol than was necessary, and ate double portions of dinner.

I have good excuses. But they are just that...excuses. I knew when I was doing it that it was a bad idea. Stress just brings out the hunger monster in me! But normally I can acknowledge the issue and work out a smart plan to avoid this much damage. I just gave up this weekend.

Today is a new day. I'm drinking my water. I'm going to practice tonight for lots of cardio. I'm going to stay in calorie range today.

I can't change the past but I can work toward a better future.

    Stress always gets me, too; it's about the only time I really overeat or binge. Just get back on track and forgive yourself.

    Congrats on the new position and raise! I'm sure the situation will work out for the best, whether that means you move to the new position or stay put.

    Have a great Fourth!

    Everyone has one of "those" days or weekends! Just remember that one weekend does not a lifetime make...you can do it! Good for you with the tracking. I've been tracking too..just on paper and then I have more of an issue with my tracking once I'm home from work. At least by tracking you were able to really see what you were doing. I think that's the biggest thing. We never really realize just how much is eaten until we track.

    Good luck with the job thing. I hope you get what you want. emoticon

    emoticon Have alternative options handy just in case you get blind sided by the urge again. Keep the end in mind before you succumb to temptations. A little indulgence now and then is ok; just brush yourself off and keep on keeping on. Have a great week. emoticon
