We all make stupid mistakes right?

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Maybe I will feel less stupid if I blog...
emoticon doubtful.

Well, my man was wanting some ...

I can be a real bore. And he tends to work, come home and naps, gets up for "dinner" (maybe a cheese sandwich) and watches maybe an hour if tv and then off to read and go to sleep.

He has been working on the acreage alone for quite some time now as I was doing the PMP coursework. He worked hard on Saturday and needed a break. We have started very recently going to dinner once a week but that is about it for us.

Anyway, off we went. We ended up grabbing a great lunch at Red Lobster where I eat wayyyy to much. Then we went to Columbia. We decided against Charleston thinking that it is a 3 hour drive and we planned to be back around 6:30 or so for Utah to get his meds.

Long story short, I drank to much...

Also, I rarely drink so I guess it really hit me too. We met some really great people but they were buying me shots.

BUT I AM WAYYYY to old to be doing shots. As my man said, about twice a year we drink too much. We may be just me. Anyway. STUPID. I had a great time but went too far.

Moderation is key. I ate everything in sight yesterday to feel better. NOT GOOD. I was 3 LBs up today. Yes, THREE POUNDS!

Ok. No worries.

and dropping (kicking them to the curb) the lbs will remind me just how strong I am.

opps, where did that one come from?!?

Most importantly....

TODAY is 5 weeks NO seizures for Utah.

OK, enough embarrassment shared for 1 day.

Here's to a new day.

    Very glad to hear that Utah is doing well. emoticon

    As for you, well that 3 lbs. is nothing. You will shed that in a day or two.
    No worres, but how is the head after those shots ?

    Back on track, and all will be well !!

    It happens to the best of us. The difference between success and failure is our determination not to give up.

    Like mentioned. Water weight. What I do, is go low carb to try to get it off. More protein and fat. Oh and drink lots of water.

    Some ppl say, that after a carb/calorie up day like that, that when it does go, they end up having a swoosh drop of weight. So that's kewl, huh? Usually happens to low carb folks after a carb up like that.

    Wow, that sounds like quite a party! The important thing is that you made it home safely. Hope Utah's meds were administered to him properly that evening.. j/k, I'm just razzing you ;) Glad Utah has been seizure free 5 weeks- that's fantastic! And don't worry about partying like it's 1999 if it's only once or twice a year. You're never too old to have a little fun every now and then!

    Hurray for Utah who will continue to be in my prayers!

    Moderation, not deprivation is an awesome mindset. The water weight gain will resolve itself. Continue drinking your water!

    I don't think that 3 lbs is long term.

    I don't condone abusing alcohol but it's fun to let loose every once in awhile! (unless you're a "bad" drunk, I've been told I'm a good one) If I know I am walking home or have a designated driver I'll have that extra one or two from time to time when I'm not training hard for something. My weakness is red wine, haha. I don't do shots, did once or twice in my way younger days, hated it so much I used to fake drinking them when someone would buy me one (throw it back onto the floor behind me pretending it was going in my mouth, haha).

    I'm sure you paid your price by the way you felt physically and mentally already. Your sins are forgiven.

    Wait, are you Reese Witherspoon??? I had no idea! (sorry, bad joke)

    There's no point beating yourself up about it now. Just learn from your mistakes and move forward. It's okay to allow yourself to overindulge once in awhile, as long as it doesn't continue. I will admit to allowing myself an occasional beer or glass of wine. I've never done shots, nor do I really have the urge to try one (or more). You know what you did wrong, and you also know how to fix it. Problem solved!

    I'm so glad that Utah is still seizure free. How are you treating his seizures? I have a friend whose yellow lab has been having seizures, and I know she's really frustrated.

    Good intentions sometimes fail us when we are faced by temptation and short circuited by alcohol!

    We all have to let loose once in awhile! I was up 3 pounds this week just from NOT drinking my water over the weekend! I was down today 2.4 pounds so there went that water weight. The important thing is to not look back and just........ emoticon

    Oops! I think we have to do that every once in a great while to remember why we don't choose to live that way. Of course 1 glass of wine would be enough for me to be drinking too much. I still have that wine now and again though.

    And just like I'm going to kick my 5 lbs to the curb, you'll kick that 3 lb gain too!

    Woo Hoo on Utah! That is huge! No better news could be possible today.
