Well, it's Monday, which I'm sure you all know. The new week has officially begun. The weekend is over. Hopefully this means my eating will straighten up again. You see, I'm one of those people who tend to slip up a lot on the weekends. Ever been there?
My hubby was off on Friday, so unfortunately my weekend was 3 days long. Most people would be excited by that, but I just saw the weekend looming before me, rubbing it's hands together and sneering at me as if to say, "Come and get me!!" Ugh!
The weekend started with my family going to Legoland and then out to eat at one of my fav. Tex-Mex restaurants that is no longer near us. So, I of course had to eat the good stuff, right? Their sangria is heavenly. I had veggie fajitas. I had a little fried ice cream (really not that good, so it was easy to stop eating it). I HAD to enjoy myself, right? All the way home, I felt incredibly guilty for what I did. I felt like I let myself down AGAIN. Not the first time.
Saturday, I woke up and thought it would be a different day and I could start over. Well, I was pretty ill with a headache and stomach pains. I didn't feel like eating at all. I also didn't feel like making dinner, so I gave in and let the guys order Dominos for dinner. I was pretty well-behaved, but I'll admit I did have some. Again, guilt was my dessert.
Sunday! Another great chance to try again! I actually ate pretty well Sunday, but didn't get much activity. My hubby grilled a ton of veggies and that was dinner. I also made a good recipe I found on this site for Grilled Margherita Portobello Mushrooms. Yum! Very tasty. So I didn't feel too much guilt yesterday.
Now it's Monday and I'm looking back on the weekend and shaking my head. I know better than to eat some of that stuff! I know that it set me back, it doesn't help me in any way! I know that I should've been more active and worked off some of those horrid calories! I now have a busy week ahead and I'm not sure how it's going to go. I'm not one of those people who plan their food for the week. I usually figure it out as I go along. If you DO plan ahead, how on Earth do you do it? I've never been able to do it.
So here's to another week of trying hard to behave myself. Of trying to support my SP friends and hopefully get support in return. Of trying to remember that this is all within my control and I make tons of choices every day and many of them have to do with my eating, health, and better lifestyle.
Here's to trying to love myself more, trying to be healthier, trying to get sleep, eat well, and release stress as soon as I feel it. I really need a good week. I'm sure you do to, so good luck and remember that we're all in this together!
