Cheater cheater chocolate eater.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

It's weird how "cheating" on your diet makes you feel like you are cheating on a significant other. Your heart beats faster. You make excuses to justify it. You're nervous about getting caught. Or maybe it's just me who gets like that when I "cheat" on my diet. I've been craving a Reese's egg lately. I've been putting it off for about a week now. Today I decided to buy just ONE. I had plenty of calories left for the day, and even with eating it, I still have about 50 calories left over. Now I'm sitting here taking teeny tiny bites off of it, trying to make it last as long as possible. I know that obviously one Reese's egg won't hinder my weight loss for this week, but I'm still kind of paranoid. Anyway.. It was a planned treat, so I don't feel that bad about it, lol.

I also took some pix at the gym today. On my phone and in the mirror, I felt like I looked small. Once I uploaded the pictures on my iPad, not so much. Don't laugh. 222 pound pictures..

It's kinda sad that as I was taking these pix, for some reason all I could think in my head was "hey there tubby tubby". Lol that's awful. Can't wait to take -50 pounds progress pictures. I wish it was quicker. I know I can't have that mindset though, so I need to be patient. Anyway, I'm just prattling on, I'll end this blog now before I started rambling about pink glittery unicorns or something.

    Hey, you planned it, you logged it, that's not cheating! If you had one every day and never counted it, that would be cheating. We can't give up everything. We'd be miserable and unhappy and geeks just aren't built to be that way.

    Keep up the good work!! emoticon

    chocolate and pink glittery unicorns sounds like a match made in heaven for me
    i love unicorns :)
    your doing great. dont think about how much you got to go think about how you feel now. do you feel great, then that is all that matters.
    i think we as woman have a love affair with chocolate and that is why you get the fluttery cheating feeling cause its so sinful yet its legal

    I think just one was fine- last night my challenge was totellini- I hadn't had any pasta in months and I made it for my family- measured my portion and then kept eating- not good behavior- but it tasted so good. I would just as soon skip Easter- that was always the spring holiday that derailed my eating big time. I got married two weeks after Easter and that Easter candy just kept going in my mouth- which was why my dress had to be taken out more when I hoping it would be comfortably loose.

    Maybe I will buy extra weight watchers celebration mini bars( they taste kind of like birthday cake) I could carve them into the shape of Easter eggs and put them in a basket for me emoticon emoticon

    There isn’t anything you can do to make up for a slip in your diet. No amount of cardio or starving yourself after the fact can change the reality of what has already been done. Any thoughts to the contrary fall neatly into the realms of magical thinking as the universe doesn’t have a rewind button. What is done is done so you just have to move on. Wallowing in guilt and trying to make up for our bad choices with hours of exercise doesn’t bring you any closer to the body of your dreams. If anything, it only pushes you further away from your intended goal of a healthier lifestyle. Instead, learn to see your slips for what they are: learning experiences that teach more about yourself. Every slip holds the information needed to help avoid a re-occurrence. It’s an opportunity to see what triggers make you stray from your intended path. Is it people? Is it places? Or is it a reaction to stress? Each time brings the opportunity to figure out just what you need to look out for in the future. emoticon emoticon You will get there.
