It's a binge kind of weekend

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I think this weekend has become the culmination of all my failed efforts over the summer. I don't know what I ate last night, but I ate pretty much everything that I saw, and a whole lot of it. I've been paying for it all day. After a week of bringing lunches and trying not to over eat, last night killed my system. I suppose that is reason enough not to do it again.

I reset my goals today. I need to focus. I need to fill up my life with things that do not include just sitting on the couch doing nothing. I do a lot of that these days. I have all this time right now while I'm not taking classes, and I'm just wasting it. No more. I will change this no matter what I do.

My goal for tomorrow is to drink plenty of water. I am taking my husband to BaconFest, which is sure to be a mecca for unhealthy eating, but I will do my best to find reasonable and healthy options. I am going to get up early and do something, even if it is just a video, before I leave the house. I am going to eat breakfast before I leave.

I started making better decisions this past week (bringing lunch being the biggest of these) and I need to keep that going. I cannot, no, I WILL NOT live in this body any longer. I'm sick of hating what I look like. I love the person that I am, but now it is time for the outside to match the inside.

So, binge weekend, I am kicking you to the curb. I may not be perfect for the rest of the weekend, but I'm sure going to try to be better.

    Well I sure needed to read this blog tonight. I just got home from vacation where I think I must have eaten my weight in pizza! lol Okay so that might be a slight exaggeration but it was a LOT of pizza!

I have also said so long to the past week and am moving forward! emoticon

    I am glad you are ready for the outside to match the inside and have re-committed to a healthy lifestyle. WooHoo for packing your own healthy lunch this week. I also applaud that you will workout before going to the bacon event today and eating a healthy breakfast.
Keep moving during the festival and that will keep your activity level up today.
Best wishes as you start your journey to better health again. emoticon

    Wow! I loved this blog entry. I don't know if you set out to do this, but this is what I saw: You started by telling us about your "failures". Then, you evaluated what you've been doing and looked for (and found) strategies that you can use to ensure your success. Then, you signed off by demonstrating how strong & motivated you are. --All of this in just a few brief paragraphs. Anyone who makes this their pattern is sure to turn those (seeming) mountains into mole hills (or better yet moguls), propelling you toward your goals! If I were going to place a bet, my money would be on YOU! : )

    Weekends are rough for me too, especially holiday weekends. emoticon Great job getting back on track, and not letting one bad day slow you down.

    Holidays are hard for us weight watchers. I have a Catfish festival going on in my neighborhood that won't end until Monday. All manner of carnival-style fare is out there for my indulgence and oh how I love to nosh! I am going to be strong and not even go to the festival until Monday and then not pig out. Good luck at your Baconpalooza!
