Today I decided to 'give up'...

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

...but only just for today.
I need to let go of stress at the moment and one of those was how I was constantly eating the wrong stuff this week.
Obsessing over it hasn't helped - it's made it worse. So just for this afternoon, I decided to not track and just eat what I wanted.

I know that tomorrow I will get back to tracking. I trust myself enough to take a tiny break in order to be able to start again afresh.

Thank you for all the kind words and goodies. I haven't had a great week (so far!) but your support has truly helped me keep going.

I'm off to try and relax with a soothing cup of sleep tea and a bit of crafting before bed.

    Track everything good or bad. No one else is looking and you might learn what you do when you have "mistakes". I track whether I eat junk or not. I don't beat myself up when I goof off. I eat well most of the time. Good luck. Don't allow stress over what you eat. This is a lifestyle not a diet. You can eat everything in moderation. emoticon

    Yes, step back...don't stress...
    Better to reset and move forward, than resent the past.

    We've been thinking of you. Hope things are getting better.

    good for you for identifying stress & making a plan to release some of it! One step at a time, my friend. emoticon

    I SO get it. Sometimes, you just need a break to stay sane. I think the idea of of an ETERNITY of restraint, makes up give up for good. However, a little break, and then getting going again can keep you from going bonkers! (just get back in that saddle ASAP!)
