Why do I crumble when I get home

Friday, March 29, 2013

My lack of tracking, eating poorly and less exercise has caught up with me. Argh. I find that I do pretty darn good at work. Even if I don't pack, I've found a lot of healthy options in our cafe. Most days before I leave work, I have 6-7 glasses of water down and 3-4 freggies in me. I'm inches away from a successful day. Then I go home and come unravelled. I have a list on the pantry door of quick, easy, fun things to do instead of nibble but I look right past that list. My brain knows what to do but my emotions have my brain bound and gagged somewhere. I've inched back up in weight a little. It's harder to run because of injury and because of not eating too great.

Ok, but it's a sunny (finally!) Friday of Easter weekend. I have much to be grateful for. So I will end my pity party.

    I find evenings the hardest as well. What's been working for me (well, usually), is to have a healthy dinner ready (or at least something that I can whip together quickly) and save calories for evening snacking. I eat three small meals a day, and save about 1/5 - 1/4 of my calories for a healthy snack a few hours before bedtime. That, and a good book tend to keep my away from the fridge most nights.

    Own it. It is behind you now. Get serious and focus forward on progress: not perfection, push forward to what you can do with the will to just do it! You are doing great! Look for the good progress, learn from the not so good, and let your heart song sing to take you onward and upward. You can do it and so can I! emoticon

    Just take it one day at a time. For me - having a positive environment in one place (and succeeding there) tends to bleed over into other areas. If you can - write down things that trigger your mistakes and see if you can change anything. Just keep trying.
