blowing it all at Bunko

Friday, November 16, 2012

Ok, I have dreaded this, but I decided I needed to blog about it, to teach myself a lesson. I went to Bunko, where there's always an abundance of food and goodies, and my self control went out the window. I tracked it all (was way over my calories, and it was painful to track) and I paid for it on the scale. I think it is going to take me at least a week to get back to where I was before that night and those poor choices.

So--when i do something like this, I like to drill it into my head, so that at least I learn from it. And what I have learned from this unfortunate Bunko experience is that

The food I ate wasn't worth a week of my progress.

From now on when I'm tempted like that (e.g. Thanksgiving maybe?) I'm going to ask myself, "Is this food worth a week of progress?" Most likely the answer will be no, and I'll be able to make more reasonable choices.

I'm all for eating a few bites of something really tasty, but that decision includes thinking it through and setting limits and also distinguishing what's really tasty and what isn't.

Anyway, have a great weekend!

    This is so true - I always ask myself is it worth it? For something you're really going to enjoy having a little of it every so often is probably a good idea, but if youre not going to LOVE it - what's the point?

    Enjoyment and control can be a tough balancing act. I've had some colossal meltdowns. Hope you can turn this into a positive. emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear about blowing it, but that's ok. Just pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and keep going!!!

Recognizing the issue is the greatest thing. You can work on that issue so you can make better decisions in the future!! emoticon
