Argh, when will I learn the lesson?

OVEREATING IS NEVER WORTH IT. Write that on the blackboard 100 times, Christy.

This whole past week I've been on such a high. It's FINALLY spring here in Indiana, and the warm(er) temps and sunshine send me through the roof. I've also been feeling good about getting healthy, have been working out and tracking calories faithfully. I finally came to terms with losing weight the healthy way, 1-2 pounds a week, taking all the time I need, and genuinely enjoying myself in the meantime rather than putting my life on hold until I have the perfect body.

All it took was 1 day. Yesterday there was almost an audible click when I reached an "I don't care" moment, and then it was junk junk junk the rest of the day. I think we all know the feeling of going to bed with an uncomfortably full stomach. This morning I woke up feeling frustrated and physically gross. Slipped right back into the old pattern of hating my body, hating the road ahead, wishing I could snap my fingers and get all the weight off. Black cloud began to form.

Hey, you know what can cause grouchiness and physical discomfort? Junky, sugary, salty, fatty processed food! Every time, EVERY time I overindulge in this stuff, I feel bad (mentally and physically) afterward. Every, every, every time. It's just not worth it. I'm not saying "Never again!" because I have to be realistic. But I'm onto you, junk food. I'm aware that when I choose you, I suffer negative consequences. And I'm going to choose you less and less as time goes by.

Operation Feel Good recommences! Being happy, genuinely happy, is too amazing to give up for one bad day.

    I had a week and a half that I fell off the wagon, quit logging my food, half heartedly worked out (a little), started drinking soda again. I feel your pain! Somehow I remembered that I had made a comittment to myself to get healthy. I now track even when I'm "BAD" so at least I know what I'm putting in my body & it has helped me continue to lose, (I'm almost half way to where I want to be) I know you can do this!!!

    You are on the right path!! You will have days where you slip, but you are aware of this and are making plans to get back on track quickly and continue down your path of healthiness! It is too easy for me to fall off the wagon and then allow that wagon to continue to run over me while I scarf down all of the junk food that is falling off into my mouth.

Here's to a better week for both of us!! emoticon emoticon What's done is done and we can work hard today!
