The good...the bad...the ugly...

Friday, December 28, 2012

Today I woke with all good intentions of having a GREAT day. I am not going to beat myself up. Today is only day two on the program so I know if I were more into the thick of it I would have been stronger so here goes.

The good...
Started the day off with a nice three mile run.
Lost a pound from yesterday (I know it's WAY early and probably weight fluctuations but still feels I'll take it)
Tracked my food intake through lunch.

The bad...
Stopped tracking my food after lunch

The ugly...
Before our wonderful company arrived my husband came home from the supermarket with a cake, sticky buns, and cookies. WHAT WAS HE THINKING?!?!?! AND all kinds of cheeses!!!!
Of course he bought the veggies and low fat dip I asked for, but really all that junk? And then my company brought monkey bread and a raspberry ganache cake!!! So of course I lost it. I just ate, didn't even know how to process it all. Too much food for not enough people!!!!

Tomorrow will be a better day. I know it!!! At least I ran. Tomorrow's challenge will be going out for my dad's 65th birthday. I know I can be good...I just have to say NO to the birthday cake!!!! Learning to say no to the foods I love is one of the hardest things to do. Tonight was an example of that for sure.

    I say for me moderation is the key!! We had this awesome brunch up in Canada. On the other side there was the dessert spread... WOW was it sooo good... I had a little of each and it was delish.. I enjoy it now because it is a treat not a daily thing!! Happy New Year!! Hugs, Moni

    You did well to go for a run today, so all was not lost. And you started tracking, so that was better than not at all. Tomorrow is a new day just as you say! Have a try of the birthday cake, then perhaps stop at a few bites...denying yourself completely can work in reverse and lead to overeating. You don't have to be perfect, any improvement is a great achievement! Hope you all have a lovely time celebrating your Dad's 65th birthday.

    Hang in there! It gets easier as you start seeing the pounds come off. I have a hard time with anything sweet so I allow myself about 100 calories a day of candy, chocolate, something with sugar. If I don't I woudl lose it every time I was around sweets :) I obviously have not done so well over the holidays and gained 5 lbs but tomorrow is a new day, don't bea ypurself up just get back on the horse tomorrow.

    These are all steps in the same direction. Small steps build up to one long journey :)
    Keep pushing!!!

    I hate it when getting together, everyone brings the food that tempts you too much. Christmas at my house left ALL the desserts at my house. It's hard to resist, but you can do it.

    Ay! If I had a dollar for every time my DH came home with one too many treats...we'd BOTH be millionaires!!! Time to have another serious eye2eye talk with DH about your goals for yourself and how he can best help you. I'm sure he didn't mean any harm and only thought he was being helpful with your get-together (you know how often they miss the "big picture"). They truly need gentle reminders...often. Give yourself credit for owning up to the truth (something we both would have hidden years ago). Hang in there. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi! Don't beat yourself up about today! This is a tough journey we are all on, and it s wayyy tougher during the holidays! Enjoy your Dad's birthday tomorrow. Don't say no to cake, just have a very small slice. I always find that it helps to have a very small taste with a cup of tea or coffee to sip slowly with it. emoticon

    You can still eat that slice of cake, why just not increase your mileage running? Why not enjoy your food and run more?
