I Didn't Even Enjoy It!

Monday, June 24, 2013

I'd sort of forgotten that there would be an ice cream social at work today. If I had remembered, I would have reminded myself that dairy has not been good to me lately and that it is not on my Paleo plan. I would have been giving myself lots of self talk and visualized how I would have handled the temptation steps away from my desk.

I did not. There were several flavors of Baskin Robbins ice cream. I had a lot, but not as much as I wanted! Yikes. As I ate, a coworker who's been on WW for years told someone else she was not going to have any. I kept eating thinking, "I really should stop." I did not.

I regretted my eating.

It's raining here today, a rare summer shower. The rain might explain why my arm has been hurting for days. It's the arm I broke years ago which is now my own weather forecaster. The pain could also be from using my KBs, but it really feels as if it's arthritis in the bone and not muscle or tendon pain.
I did a tiny light KB workout tonight and it did hurt a little.

Not great food decision but attempting to exercise is definitely progress!

    Good for you for getting your exercise in. Just put the ice cream behind you. Next time you'll do better.

    That is too bad that you had as much ice cream as you did but, know what? It was one decision, on one afternoon, one day. So now what? Well, you can beat yourself up about it and feel bad or you can use it as a learning experience. Learn from it and move on! The real key is to not let it snowball. You had the ice cream and it stops right there! You got this!

    Hard to resist that Baskin Robbins, nothing but the best for your work place! Ice cream is always the one thing I have at Costco. I far and away prefer it over their fries or other foods.
Its been mostly cold, rainy and damp here and it does wreak havoc on old injuries and other body problems. Good for you trying to workout anyway.
Hope you feel better tomorrow!
