Stress over took me.

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Today was my day to add lbs. I had no way of controlling it. It just came over me and took me by the hand and led me to places I have managed to stay away from. It happened because I could not have my blueberries this morning, due to heartburn. I always have my oatmeal and blueberries in the morning and it fills me, but this morning, it was just oatmeal. Then I had a doc apt and probably the rushing about didn't help. I manged to do my weights and bike before I left, but also wash clothes too. Then I had to get some dollar bills at the bank and because of the celebration they had balloons and cookies. Well, I tried to not walk over there, but my feet I couldn't seem to control, and you guess it, got two of each, and then decided instead of sharing with dh, I would get him two and I could enjoy the two I had. I had stayed away from sweets so it was a treat. I came home and made the shepherd pie and had two small helpings and still was hungry. I couldn't tackle any fruit because of the heartburn and no bannas were in the house. I started to drink water. Other days, i would have the organtic
tea, which I seem to be able to take and it would fill me as I had it twice a day, and my fruit, but seems I over did it and heartburn took over. I ended up with two slices of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff and shared the left over, small portion, of shepherd pie for supper.
Now, tomorrow I fear facing the scale. At least 3 lbs. i am sure. So will have to do some double sets of exercise and up the bike from 40 to 60 and 3 sets of weights.I just hope I don't have another day like today. For some reason I just could not control it. Now, my teeth are brushed and I will not eat anything after I brush them, so water for me now.

    Hon, sometimes you just have one of those days where stress just completely breaks you down. It's being human. Please don't beat yourself up over it. If anything, look at it as a well deserved day to let everything off your chest and just take a break from the world. Sometimes having a day like that is just as necessary as breathing. You can't get the bottled up stress out unless you sometimes LET it. ;)

    No one day will cause any lasting problems for anyone as long as it doesn't become a habit. Try not facing the scale. Just stay away from it for a week or so. I don't think SparkPeople recommends ramping up exercise to make up for eating too much. Just pick yourself up tomorrow and go back to your plan. Let me know how it goes.
