Sometimes I slip but I always get UP!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

I am not perfect and sometimes I slip back into old habits. There I have admitted it emoticon Yesterday I let emotional eating take over my day. Let's start at the beginning.

I bought a new scale because my old scale DIED emoticon . I got on the new scale it read that I had gained 1.8 lbs emoticon I know that scales differ and that this weight may not actually be a gain. I thought -"I will not let this affect me." So I tracked my breakfast and kept it moving. Breakfast was about 350 calories emoticon

At work- well let's just say there is no professional etiquette and I will not be here another year. Updating my resume and I am looking for a new job. I was trying to avoid confrontation with my boss which resulted in me eating 2 slices of pizza for lunch emoticon . Then another incident happened which resulted in me eating a enormous oatmeal raisin cookie at about 3pm emoticon . I plan on talking to her on Monday because I need to confront the situation before I explode.

After work - well I had planned to stay within range during the day because I was going out. But since I had already blew my calories let's just keep the trend. 2 Long Island Ice teas, 7 oz steak with a baked potato and let's not forget the buffalo wings as an appetizer! emoticon emoticon

I know that yesterday I consumed well over 2,000 calories but that was yesterday. Today I am back on track. I did skip zumba because I am getting a cold plus I was a little hung over from those Long Islands emoticon . But this morning I ate a 300 calorie breakfast and have tracked my food for the rest of the day emoticon

Sometimes you slip- but you have to get back up so that you kick FAT in it's BIG OLE BUTT emoticon emoticon

    What we slip up and do isn't as important as what we do consistently emoticon . Glad you're back on track! Never give up on yourself. emoticon . Hopefully soon you'll have a new gig and less stress. Maybe then you'll have a Long Island to celebrate! Lol emoticon

    I was just there, been there, just done that! We are only way are we perfect but you did the best thing you can do.. admit it, know why you did it, let it go and move on! It took me two days to shake myself free of the Oh Well's...You Got This!

    It's good to just admit that you are a human and get back on the horse. I'm just glad I'm not the only one who falls into emotional eating now and then.

Having a bad job is a tough one. I hope you get your resume done and a great company scoops you up.

You have come a L O N G way. Hang in there. emoticon

    Kick fat in the butt -- I like that! How sad is it that I read this and immediately thought about how much I would love to eat that buffalo wings dinner. Hope you at least enjoyed it.

    You are doing well, great approach!
You can't change the past, so not dwelling on mistakes but starting a brand new day well is the best you can do.
