Crappy mental state of mind

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Today was a trying day, and I found myself having a pity party....I don't often do that, but I have my problems, just like everyone else. While in the midst of this self-induced crisis, I found out how destructive this type of behavior could be....this happened while making my salad for lunch. I caught myself starting to loosen my self control and stopped midstream. I thought immediately of the effort I put forth in spin class this morning and snapped out of the mental funk. I realized that hard work was too important to make meaningless by slipping up with food....that's a huge thing for me and reinforces how far I've come since November, when I would have just rolled with it and given myself permission to ignore counting and tracking my calorie intake.

    It's hard to combat 'pity party' urges but you did it. You are strong and incredible for being able to do that. Keep up the hard work! Son't forget, your SP friends (and random people like me :P) are here for you if you need us.
