Changing This Blog (Thanks NANCY!)

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I was going to write a blog today about, yes again, the pumpkin pie I overate. I expected myself to know better after 4 years of a healthier lifestyle. I failed to understand how I didn't really want it or enjoy it, but felt compelled to show myself I could have it. And have it again. (smiling)

I do the same thing when I give up coffee. I don't really want it or need it, but there's something deeper that makes me return after I've detoxed for several months.

Then, sparkfriend NANCY's response came into my blog this morning and made me smile. Congrats on being human. Yes, I am. And congrats on the exercise.

Thanks, NANCY. This blog's for you.

    We are are only human & will slip from time to time. The key is to picking ourselves up & moving past the obstacle that we are tripping over. One step at a time. emoticon

    It all comes back to that "all things in moderation" theory. Hope you are having a good holiday weekend! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    It is odd that when you give up something the memory is often actually better than the actually product should you choose to retry it. I am getting into the two bite rule. The first bite is the best and it is downhill from there so there is no need to have more than a couple of bites.

    Sometimes our bosses at work expect no errors EVER. Maybe if we were machines it would work like that. The same goes for our errors in eating. We are not robots programmed to only intake what is good for us, and only certain things. As your friend Nancy said, we are human!! And thank God for that.

    yep, it's important not to focus on the negatives. we all make mistakes, obsessing over them (ironically) just makes up repeat them.

    We are all human and we can all relate to what you did. We do it, too. I did it for 4 days! But I'm back on track now.
