What the beep?

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

grrr, what the poop? Made the rookie mistake of weighing myself on a day that wasn't my weekly day. Yuck. two lbs more than last time. realizing my mistake but unable to erase the ugly number from my memory.... dove into four pieces of yummy cinnamon raisin bread.... ugh, dang it! that can't be good..... oh, sooooooo not logging THAT in the food log! followed by wasted time in the abyss of the internet instead of exercising AAAACK!!!!! lol.
so, how has your day been!!
whooo, thankfully, I have spark to cling to when I jump off the crazy wheel and get back on the wagon with a good, heartfelt, anxiety easing blog vent!!! yay!!! so.... sigh and move on to realize that it was only four pieces of bread, not four chunks of poisonous rat trap bait so I actually can move on and live through this event. And, it is still early and i have a super support network so all my kids and hubby will rally and do something active with me if i just ask! yay!! Lucky me to have that help! also, I have lots of yummy produce that I bought yesterday and a vegan daughter that loves to have cooking adventures with me and we can find lots of super delicious foods with barely any calories and lots of healthy energy to even out my calorie count for the day! yay! I am so lucky and for the first time today, I get why journalising and blogging is helpful! two paragraphs to get from-Oh My God! I am a dieting failure...... blah, blah, blah to yay me!!!

    I agree with the others....track it. Even if you don't, your body knows you ate it but seeing it in black and white can be very educational and as Tamara said, the bread may not come out that bad nutritionally. There is nothing to be ashamed of. It happens.

I have to say I got a kick out of reading your blog. I don't think I've ever seen anyone go so quickly from 'what the poop" to 'yay me" before. You must be a hoot to be around emoticon

    I jumped off the wagon a week ago and I'm almost back where I was. I've lost 65 pounds todate and have to keep my goals in sight. But I binged for almost 5 days and had severe indigestion, and felt like giving up. So your right on to focus back on Spark People, and focus on next steps.

    I agree with everything TaMara said. And how cool is it that you have a vegan daughter? The opportunities to find healthy meals you can both enjoy are abundant! I'm not at all a vegan but I am definitely working to make my diet more plant based than it is. If you come up with some awesome main dish recipes from your adventures together be sure to post them for us!

    We all have days like you had today. It's great that you have so much support and are able to jump right back up on the old SparkWagon!

Way to go!

    Hey hon. We've all had days like that.

I agree tho, you need to put it on your tracker. Keep yourself accountable, if only to yourself. Do a little bit more activity tonight, maybe have a lighter dinner. You can do it! *HUGS*

    Good thinking that it's just 4 pieces of bread and no, it's not going to kill you! But you do need to be accountable and put those four pieces of bread in your tracker. You ate them, so not entering them is just lying to yourself and that's not healthy. Nor is it helping you in any way. You might even be surprised and see that those 4 pieces of bread aren't even that bad! Seeing that information will help you make smarter decisions in the future until you get to the point where you don't need to emotionally eat! And remember, your weight can fluctuate from day to day based on water retention so don't let it get you down. Be sure you weigh in at the same time, on the same day, in the same place to get the most accurate results! Good Luck!
