In Like a Lion...Out Like a Lamb?

Friday, March 01, 2013

Ok, I know the old saying "In like a Lamb, Out Like a Lion" or visa versa is suppose to be referring to the weather but I will call it as it happened to me.

I have had some frustrating things going on in my life including my health and family issues. I let it get the best of me today. I am so ashamed of myself. I have been so strong with my eating healthy. I cannot exercise as much as I would like to but I do try to walk often.

I found myself GRAZING today and it was not food that was good for me. I was not hungry. Perhaps it was a bit of boredom, frustration, and hormones. I even had a soda today which I cannot believe. I gave up caffeine at the beginning of the year. I made excuses for every bite I put in my mouth. I am feeling sick now and wish I could take it all back. I want a do over!
I need a swift kick in the rear end. I know there are no do overs. I will just have to wake up tomorrow and hopefully remember how bad I feel right now and dust off the guilt and carry on.

So, with all of this said...March has started like a (Roaring Lion) but I am praying it ends like a (Sweet Little Lamb).

    I hope the issues are working themselves out. As far as getting off track, don't look back, just look forward, and remember how you felt after overeating. Did it make you feel good ?? I can relate, I had a day like that a couple of weeks ago, and felt awful for two days after.
You can get back on track. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope your issues are resolved.

Writing about it is helping you cope, and obviously you now know what you need to do.

Great work.

You are doing it! Keep after it.

    I too am an emotional eater. I never really thought so until recently. But it's true. We juice fruits and veggies every morning so I always feel good about that. I try to not feel bad about slip ups, they don't define me! I have found keep good old fashion popcorn on hand makes a filling yummy snack. I found popping it in coconut oil and a bit of butter makes it taste so good no toppings are needed. And I was a buttered popcorn lover. I make sweet treats rarely as I have no will power. But I promised my hubby oatmeal cookies today:-)

    Oh my gosh!! I am reading the same thing I thought just 2 days ago about myself. The worst part for me was life was falling apart and I chose at that moment to focus on the food tracker, which meant ditching the soda and sugar.

Physically, stopping that habit was killing me. So there I was beating myself up about all the decisions I was making and feeling sick from no soda! But ya know? It didn't break me! And from what I have read on your page, I know it won't break you either!!

The best thing about Sparking is someone out there is always cheering you on!

Hang in there! emoticon

    Let it Go
-- by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    It's from our mistakes we learn, don't we?
It happened to me quite a few times, but now, I'm careful with every bite! I'm sure you won't do it again, considering how you're feeling right now! We just have to pick ourselves and move on!

    I hope you are right! I hope this month goes better than last month. Maybe we will even get some nicer weather up here as well....

    Just jump right back on the wagon. I think it's great you gave up caffeine. I ate fries today and felt guilty too, but I'll keep trying until I succeed.
