C minus 18

Friday, December 07, 2012

Yesterday was great until dinner time, when I went to a Mexican restaurant with my family. I drank a margarita. I only ate a few chips. I only ate a third of my greasy, disgusting dinner. But then I ate some of my daughter's candy afterward. That was not part of the plan:( But it could have been so much worst.

Today I also ate a little more than I planned at lunch, but I'm cutting myself some slack because of the time of the month. I usually do gain or stall at this time, but then lose a significant amount afterward. So I'm just holding on to hope that it gets better!!

~~~ C-18 ~~~
I went for a long hike today, which I found difficult. I didn't have very much energy. I rested most of the day besides the hike.
I don't anticipate any challenges for this evening. Since we went out last night, we're not going out tonight.

Highlights: I love the time I spend with my dog on the trail

Lowlights: PMS still

    It is difficult to do strenuous exercise with PMS. I always start out feeling energized, but then fatigue will hit me like a ton of bricks!

I'm so glad you put the brakes on the Mexican food episode! That shows real progress!

    That sounds pretty minor in the scheme of things, though I know that thought: why have any candy at all when I was fine without it? Because we're just not used to saying no yet. That's all. But you didn't succumb to WTH and I'm sure you ate reasonably. That's fair. And one day, you'll have less without its being much effort.

    Glad you had a nice hike, even if you didn't have a lot of energy you still likely feel better than if you hadn't gone at all. 18 days? What? I can't hear that Christmas lights, no presents bought...uh-oh

    You can do it. Just takes some time. Everyone slips up... but hey who can pass up a margarita!! I hate going out for the reason I want my usual's but then end up getting the healthier plate. Then I drool at the sight of my b/fs plate.

    I'm a sucker for Mexican food. Anything is better with sour cream!

Sounds like you're a little tired and in need of some rest. Hope you have time to recover over the weekend, and I hope the PMS lets up soon!

Have a good evening.
