News Flash! I JUMPED off the wagon!

Monday, April 08, 2013


NEWS FLASH! I can't DO THIS health jig without SPARK PEOPLE!

To make a long story short.... I jumped off the wagon. I didn't slip off, I JUMPED! it all started with spring break and smoking some Boston butts with my family who I haven't seen in months. As usual, we all brought food! I smoked two HUGE butts with "Slap Yo Mama-Butt Rub" The "butt" was the only cheat of that day.... I ate pork instead of chicken or fish. OOPS! Nope! Scratch that! I also ate some of my sister's chocolate peppermint trifle (and I'm on a low-carb diet).

A few days later it was a fish fry for my brother.... which I COOKED! He's a quadriplegic and couldn't do it himself. I also cooked fries and puppies. Heck, we didn't even have a veggie with that meal!

A few days later it was Easter...and to ME, celebrating holidays means FOOD (well, mostly it means food). I baked a ham, made cupcakes and potato salad. ( think I ate about 1/2 dozen of those cupcakes over about 2 days.

On the heels of Easter I entered a work week that was filled with long stressful days, a HUGE workload, tons of stress and I had no time to cook. I ate at McDonald's one night, Churches Chicken on another and at a local BBQ place on yet another night. Go figure! BY that time I'm all like, "Who cares? Eat what ya want!"

I then entered the weekend, and said to myself, "Eat everything you want this weekend for Monday you DIET!"

So.... here I am. It's newest "Day One." I've got to get my rhythm going again. I guess the only way to lose is to just quit completely! I put up a new pic on my Spark page that kind of sums up>>>>> Success is not a straight line.

Here's to yet another, "Day One!"

    Sounds like getting back to basics is what is needed here. I think there are more of us who have had to start again than those who just continue on there journey from day one. That's the beauty of SP. We have all the tools to get us back on track along with support and encouragement from our friends/Spark family. YOU can do this. emoticon

    I can't begin to tell you how many times I've gotten thrown off of that wagon. It's so much easier to slip up on what we know we SHOULD be doing. I guess the old adage is true ---Old Habits are hard to break. But guess what --one step at a time will help us change those bad habits into good ones. emoticon

    OH please girl i've been rolled over by the wheels on the wagon a time or ten. We just pick ourselves up and like the last post said dust off our butts and get back to it. One step in front of one step until the momentum is gotten. I've got your back and and remember you can have as many day ones as needed to reach that ultimate goal. Just takes some of us longer than others....i'm still reaching.

    Today is a NEW day and you can get up and dust yourself off and move forward. I sure hope you enjoyed the foods that called your name and branded YOUR BUTT. If you did - don't worry - just move on. If you DID NOT - then be NICER to yourself and MOVE ON. YOU CAN DO THIS - normal weight people sometimes have a week or two when one thing after another sidetracks their eating - then they simply get back up and move forward - so can you.

    Here's to another day one. I read this quote from an anonymous writer "You don't drown when you fall in the water, you drown when you stay there." so just emoticon emoticon
