Slip up

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Major slip up. I have gotten cocky with my ability to melt off the pounds and began eating snacks that I normally wouldn't give a second look to. I have gained six pounds over Easter break.

I am so upset with myself. I need to shop for a dress to a wedding and was hoping to fit comfortably into a size 8, when now I think I will struggle to fit into a size ten.
I am so mad at myself because I have two more weddings to go to in the next two months and I have to look hot and sexy.
There is nothing I can do to take my behavior back. I can only look forward. The first of three weddings, this Saturday. I can lose two pounds by then if I only drink coffee and water and consume no snacks whatsoever, and I will wait until Friday night to go by a dress. As for the other two I still have until May and June to get back my groove.
1)My first problem is that I have let bad food creep back into my house. It has become acceptable for the cabinet to contain Cheetos and Dorito's and whatever my husband wants to fill it with. I have even bought them on occasion. I was too confident that I would be able to stop eating when I was full. But with those foods, there is no full.

2)My second problem is that I have been exercising and when I am done and the whole next day I am ravishingly hungry. Problem one and problem two together are lethal.

My solution is to not by any bad snacks, that way when I am hungry after exercising I can't dig into a bag of Cheetos. I am also going to go back to drinking an entire glass of water before I eat anything. That worked really well at the beginning of my diet and I think I am at a point where I need to go back to some of the basics. The more water I consume the less likely I will be to consume something bad for me.

I hope to be back on track in a few weeks.

I want a trim summer. I don't want to screw it up just months before it arrives.

  I don't buy Cheetos either simply because I inhale them and before I know it.. have eaten wayyyy too many. Time to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and jump back into the program. emoticon

    Hope you can put the slip up behind you, forgive yourself, and do the things you need to do to get back on track.
