Monday, already?

Monday, December 03, 2012

Monday morning is bittersweet. I am excited to start the work week, I have my meal plans and my work out plans, but boy, would I rather be sleeping. Which I did, past the snooze button. So the crockpot meal got converted to a regular cooking meal, and the workout got switch to tongiht after diiner while the men are at boyscouts.

Last night I fell prey to the fatitude, all or nothing. I had two plates of vegetables and noodles at the mongolian grill, and came home to discover that near as I could estimate, chicken and noodles cooked in sesame oil are a 500 a plate. so then I ate an additional 1000 in my evening snack, nutter butters and apples, and bananas. I was so full from dinner that I couldn't sleep, was uncomfortable and the irrational part of my brain kept saying " food will make it feel better." I ended up sleeping in the chair because my tossing and getting up was keeping husband awake.
but today, is a new day. I am awake, my lunch and snacks are packed, and I have a cup of joy tea to start my day. I can get some steps in on a work break, and will finish up the 10,000 at the gym tonight.

I bought an new motivational sign yesterday. It says "i would give up chocolate, but I am not a quitter." while I might have to give up chocolate, I am not a quitter. I am a sparker, and I know that Spark people can give me the tools that I need to succeed. I just need to implement those tools. Spark people is not going to fall into the category of tried and failed, like all the other diets that I have been on. This time is different, it's a lifestyle, not a quick fix.

    I felt exactly the same way about Monday this week! And, like you, many of my best plans went out the window. emoticon

    You can do this, my friend! I love your attitude: that you aren't a quitter, but a Sparker! emoticon

    As Sugarsmom2 said, keep on truckin' ... and trackin' emoticon

    Ugh! I can relate to your series of events last night. It's like falling down trip at the top and there's no stopping till you get to the bottom.

    It sounds like you have put good planning into action this morning and it is indeed a new day! It's so much easier when I have the healthy choice right in front of my face!

    Keep going. If you stumbled and fall, pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start again. You will find yourself just stumbling and not falling. Then one day you will find the balance. emoticon
