So this weekend was a total bust. I had a really bad day at work on Friday, so told my husband we are going out to dinner. I had a steak with potatos Au Gratin. But I also had brocolli, so perhaps they were offset. I ate so fast I barely tasted the food. That is my big problem, emotional eating. I used to stop at the drivethru on my way home and order a full meal, then eat it as I drove, dumped the "evidence" and then had dinner with the family. I haven't done that in a long time, but sometimes I think about it and have to talk myself out of it. Saturday was ok, but then Sunday my youngest daughter and I had a mom daughter day. She doesn't want those very often, so I jumped at the chance. We went to lunch and I had a bacon cheeseburger AND we had onion rings and fried zuchini spears with Ranch dressing!
We had a good talk so I made the rationalization that it was ok to not just fall off the wagon, but to fully jump off.
So now it's Monday and I feel totally guilty about everything I put into my mouth. I know that we can't change the past, and what's done is done, but I was really hoping that I would do better on making choices. I also know that the change won't happen overnight, but it will never happen if I don't try.
It's Monday and I have another opportunity to start again, so here goes!
