Celebration over, back to business!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Yesterday's celebration ended with a trip to the Chinese buffet. I know this isn't good for me and that's why it's such a treat, almost like a forbidden treasure. Yes I could have made better choices there but they weren't what I wanted and what is the sense of going if you are not going to have what you want. So I had my favorites and the night was spent drinking tons of water because of so much salt in their foods. The rest of the night was spent running to the bathroom. Yes, I was bloated and uncomfortable and would I do it again, you bet! Could I be a sucker for punishment, YES!

So today my weight was up as I knew it would be, I don't know why I weigh in other than when I do the Wii, the body test always comes first. However I'm back on track, wearing my fitbit and exercising to get those steps in. How I wish I could celebrate without food but nothing else appeals to me but the food. I've got all the material items I want, I don't like to be pampered, I just enjoy eating. There in lies the biggest problem, I really love to eat and not that gourmet stuff where they put sauce dots on a plate and a sprig of something. I like the cheat comfort foods that make me all warm and fuzzy!

Isn't it something that whatever you love the most is the worst thing for you and the one you fight your whole life to control. Ahhhh, well, it's raing hard but it's still going to be a good day because I'm going to make it so!!

    It sounds like you had a great time, so don't worry about a little overeating. You do well most of the time.

I also most often celebrate with food. Like you I have what I want in material terms (not that I want much - I'm not someone who puts a high value on things), and the thought of getting a manicure, or God forbid, a pedicure makes me shudder. Ah well.

I hope you have a great day today, my friend!

    1. Is it worth trading your health for the food
2. the aim should be for small portions of what we like
3. is it worth the emotional swing
4. indulging occasionally is good but we have to define 'occasionally'.
5. Keep being honest - it's all part of the process
