Not beating myself up!

Sunday, February 03, 2013

So today, as many Americans do come Super Bowl Sunday, I ate too much. I always do. It's like a second Thanksgiving, really. I didn't kid myself this morning and pretend that I was going to only eat celery and carrot sticks while my brother-in-law's delicious hot wings stared me in the face.

Still, the momentary old feeling came up again, that familiar feeling of self-loathing. What is different today, for me, is that I am not letting that voice take control. I refuse to berate myself, or throw in the towel. It's one day. (One meal, actually.) Tomorrow is another day. I have the tools with which to take care of myself and get back on the healthy road. I have Sparkpeople now!

It's too bad, though, that tomorrow's my weigh-in day! emoticon Oops!

    SuperBowl Sundays are tough days if you do family events. Don't think of it as starting over. Just think of it as a bump in the road. It's like you's just one meal. One meal is not going to destroy all your work towards a healthy lifestyle. Letting it consume you with guilt and you giving up is what will derail you. Glad to hear that you acknowledge it wasn't the greatest choice, but you're moving on from it! emoticon
