I have had a week or so of letting things go. I wouldn't go so far as to say I binged, but I probably exceeded my SparkPeople calorie, carb, and fat allotments on different days. I am so weak in the presence of temptation. Also some foods are just plain hard to track even with the best of intentions. I have things I need to do and I'm such a procrastinator that I put them off and put off excercise to provide the time I SHOULD be doing important things. I need to fix this as it is self-sabotage.
But yesterday, I tracked my food and made a point of drinking my water. I didn't exceed my numbers. I should have eaten more veggies--that is something I really need to make happen!
Today, I am road tripping to my mom's to take her to the doctor for a procedure to discover why she gets pancreatitis. I hope the news is good. My mom had surgery in 1989 for diverticulitis and she had almost 10 years of complications. I was so worried she'd die in her 40s because of all the complications. It has made me very wary of surgery. I don't understand why so many people would embrace elective surgery--the only surgery I've had is 2 Caesarian deliveries. I'm sure her pancreatitis is related to the scar tissue and problems that followed her surgery. I just hope it can be treated so she can live a longer pain-free life.
Spark on y'all!
