Days 81 -84 of 100 Day - Exercise and no junk food streak

Monday, October 08, 2012

I don't know if any of you are familiar with the old "Odd Couple" tv show starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall...? In particular, one episode towards the end of the series was about Oscar's secretary, Myrna (played by Penny Marshall), and her boyfriend Sheldn Stimmler (played by Penny's then-husband, Rob Reiner), who had cheated on her.

I'm getting somewhere with this!

So, anyway, Sheldn (legally, it's Sheldn. No 'o' on the birth certificate.) returns to his faithful girlfriend, saying over and over, "I strayed. I strayed. I strayed.")

Well, my SparkFriends, this weekend, *I* strayed.

Yup. I'm not just talking about a cupcake. Sigh. Well, it was my daughter's birthday. When I look back on it, I realize it was mostly emotional/stress eating than a real desire to have pizza, tacos, birthday cake (I told you I strayed). I had two parties to host this weekend and for me, a kind of shy gal dealing with a tinge of social anxiety, food just soothed me. I also was terrified I didn't have enough money to pay for everything. There, I said what I realized had really been bothering me all weekend.

I did feel guilty for a while, but I'm just going to pick up where I left off and finish my streak out. If i spend too much time chiding myself about it, I'll just keep sabotaging myself and overeating.

Today's menu:
greek nf yogurt with 1/2 cup Bear Fit cereal
snack: 2 clementines
Cafeteria soup (whatever my caf has today, one serving)
Small salad (greens with balsamic dressing)
piece of roasted chicken

Just wanted to keep it real today.

Have a real day!!
