Slip-Up

Monday, April 29, 2013

Last night I got tired/cranky/lazy/whatever. I hadn't been sleeping well and I just wanted some pizza. I should have just made it myself, but I ordered Dominos gluten-free instead. Big Mistake. It was so gross!!!! But I ate it anyway.

It doesn't really matter, calorie-wise, in the grand scheme of things, but it left me so bloated and gross. I got terrible indigestion. This was my first big processed-food indulgence in a long while and I must say, it was not worth it at all. I need to remember how gross it is before I decide to get it again.

Put good in, get good out. Put crap in, feel like crap. Remember!!!

It's ok. I've forgiven myself. People don't change overnight, and I've been doing so well lately... so I will just pick up where I left off and do awesomely well the rest of the week! Today I'm planning to do a semi-fast day (I don't feel hungry at all) of just eating a ton of veggies and a few fruits, maybe some vegetarian protein powder all morning/afternoon. For dinner, we will be having the salmon and steamed veggies I was planning to make this week (yummy anti-inflammatory fish, please make me feel better!). I won't let today be ruined because of a minor slip-up -- I can do this!

    These things will happen, I myself did the same thing with pizza but with Pizza Hut and ya totally wasn't worth it. Looks like to me that you are doing the same thing I am doing, realizing it was one slip up but its not going to phase me or throw away all my hard work off. You can do this! Maybe right yourself a little memo about how the pizza made you feel and put it near your phone or take out menus so when you are tempted you will remember what has happened in the past and look for something else instead. Hope that helps.

    You have the right attitude. We had a lunch meeting at work today, they brought us pizza, it was gross. I really wanted a salad. I had yogurt and a fiber bar I had brought from home. I know what you mean about caving to cravings. I always feel bad physically and mentally. Tastes do change when you eat better. emoticon

    That is exactly the attitude you need to have. 1- you aren't going to die because you slipped up and 2- the slip-up wasn't worth it and you're not going to easily forget that. Our body really has a way of blaring those signs, huh?

    Yeah, the last time I caved in and got some processed fast food I was craving for so long I ended up being soooo disappointed and thought it was gross/made me feel awful just like you. And I think about that every time I get some intense craving - maybe you can use this experience to help you in the future. In the meantime I do hope you feel better soon!

    I notice feeling like that often now whenever i eat "junk" really makes you realize how we've mistreated our bodies in the past...

    I like your mentality though, how you recognize you did something you didn't like & get over it.

    I noticed the same thing. I've been a huge Domino's fan but since I've started eating better my tastes have changed. When I cave to a mental craving my tummy soon reminds me that it was a bad decision. It's really handy actually. We all slip up and I'm glad you've forgiven yourself. Just try to remember how you felt this time, next time you think about pizza.

    Oh, hope you feel better soon! I hate feeling bloated and weighed down. Veggie cleanse will get you back to feeling great again! At least it was gluten-free...

    Having the right attitude is the biggest step in making change.

    "Slipping up" is just that. Not the end of the world. Just pick yourself up, dust off, & get right back on that wagon.
    You can do it!

    We all slip up from time to time, the big thing is that you picked yourself up and got right back on your eating plan. emoticon emoticon emoticon
