And another week starts...

Monday, July 30, 2012

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! emoticon

    DO NOT FEEL BAD. We all go thru this. All of us have bad days and such, we just start fresh the next day or week. It doesn't matter. Remember you are #1. You are doing this for you, and you are NOT GOING TO GIVE UP.

    You could make up a list of goals, as you succed thru the week, mark it off.
    Goal 1 - plan meals for one week.
    Goal 2 Walk for 30 minutes
    Goal 3 Do some fall cleaning.

    Set goals for yourself, it does help. If you need me, just writed. lol

    Don't feel guilty. We all slip up now and again. You can get back on track! I think planning out daily what I'm going to eat helps. I just do it the night before or in the morning. I know some people do it weekly. It definitely doesn't allow for much flexibility until you get used to it. Hang in there. You can do it! emoticon

    Today is a brand new day! Aren't second chances great? And third and fourth...
    Are you making healthy choices today? Do you want me to "wag my finger" and hold you accountable? :) Hang in there. We all slip up from time to time. You just have to forgive yourself, let go of the guilt and have another go at it. You are worth it!

    Even though we have never met, we share a common bond. You and I (and thousands upon thousands of other women) are in the same boat here. I want to see you succeed.

    How did you do on your tracking and results on the weekend? I've taken an approach where I look back at my tracking to see where I can make better changes the next time. Perhaps next time leave off the fried ice cream because you remember that it wasn't all that good. Don't waste time and energy on guilt, though.
