You ever have "one of those days", well ....

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Things come to a screeching halt, and you forget who you are and all the hard work you have done so far...and then wham, you are back at it again

I mean Biscuits and Gravy, Waffle House, all amercian, twice in 1 week, as well as a big Easter Buffet, and then Taco Bell, how does one allow this to happen?

I am really mad at me , but everything but the buffet was awesome, even the buffet was , but I left feeling bloated, the food was great, but my conscious was not.

Guess the only thing to do is stop the madness and get back on track, right???

Iss it really that dang easy, it is if you have a short memory and can forgive yourself and then move onward toward your goals....Guess it could be !!

gotta run
still driving to North Dakota from Florida

    Being honest about your struggles and acknowledging that you made some unhealthy choices is a great start to getting back on track. We all fall off the wagon from time to time.
Get back up and keep fighting. You are worth it!

    Figure out what you were telling yourself before you ran into the troubles that brought on the guilt! Develop an argument that you can present yourself when faced with the temptations! Don't beat yourself up but take the blame and develop a strategy. Figure out alternatives to the foods that you chose that are healthy or just spread out the time between those splurges. If you tell yourself Biscuits and Gravy are okay when you've made space in your calorie run, then you make them part of the plan rather than part of the failure! Your in charge and the choices are yours. Plan to win rather than admit defeat!

    All you can do is get back on track. Try to learn from what went wrong and not repeat the same mistakes.
WE all do it, we all fall off. The ones who are successful are the ones who don't Give up. They carry on.
You can do this! For every two steps back take 3 forward.

  I did the same thing Easter week. You're right though. The best thing to do is to just keep on moving. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you not beating yourself up - you recognized the problem - maybe it will remind you next time you face those days to just choose a little less. emoticon

    Yep - it's that easy.

I believe more harm comes from beating yourself up over choices than from the actual food intake

Traveling healthy takes a lot of practice - so just keep working at it.

Safe journey.

    Oh yes, I've had many of those days recently. Sad, but true. But at least you enjoyed it.
