Back in the saddle

Monday, December 10, 2012

I will NEVER say that getting back in the saddle is easy.

Never, ever, EVER!

But sometimes are easier than others, depending on how off it's been.

For example: I mentioned that I was going to get derailed this weekend...and you know what? I sure as heck was!!! To the nth degree too!!

There was "visiting eating" - I also call this "polite" eating because you are the guest and it's a special occasion and there is NO WAY you can avoid this specially prepared meal of greasy latkes and brisket. There is NO POSSIBLE way. And the special dessert the hostess made for us because we mentioned we liked it so much! Can't forget that. And of course there is your favorite wine they bought ...Can't not have a glass!

So you see, I had no real choice in the matter. Hey, sometimes you don't! I've been a guest at this meal for 6 years - I know what to expect too!

And then there was the football game yesterday with it's mini-hotdogs and nachos. That meal was a 4 to 1 decision NOT in my favor to have. Ugh. By then, all I wanted was a salad!!!

So here I am today and OH THE BLOAT!! emoticon So bad my wedding band set it tight!

So now it's time to get back to better eating - which means that anything fried, sweet, salty - emoticon Ugh.. just the thought of it is turning my stomach! emoticon emoticon

I'm CRAVING green things. Crispy, green things.

I'm not craving my water just yet, but I'm chugging it nonetheless - and it's helping me feel more normal.

I have a scout den meeting/holiday party tonight - ziti and cheese and crackers... and a NICE BIG SALAD!! emoticon But it's on MY turf and I have control over what I eat, as opposed to the visiting scenario. And that makes me feel emoticon

In the next few days, things will slowly start to feel more and more takes time, I get it. No worries.

    Ah girl but you've taken control, as usual, and are back on track!

    I hate days like that... My new strategy is to really just have a little bit because I hate feeling sick afterward. Most people can understand if you say you don't want to leave feeling physically ill...
