Weekends are so difficult!

Monday, July 15, 2013

I did awful this weekend with eating better. I didn't exercise or eat healthy foods at all. I hadn't seen my family in a while and they wanted to have a cookout with my boyfriend and me. My mom made a ton of food-bbq chicken, corn on the cob, salt potatoes, baked potatoes, mac salad, potato salad. I had everything and felt horrible after. I couldn't help myself. I just kept eating..and eating.....and eating!! There was no will power this weekend. I am so bloated from all of the salt I had and very disappointed in myself as well. I feel like I "slip" almost every weekend and have something that is bad for me, but I overindulged this weekend and feel horrible now. I was doing great and I can't wait to get back on track today with eating better and exercising! Just thought I would share. I know everyone has a bad day of eating. I just need to find will power when I am around so much food and family!

  Thanks, Gabi! I just know for next time not to eat so much! I did not like the way I felt and do not want to feel that way again. That's how I used to eat, so it's an eye opener as to why I always felt bloated. I started eating better and it had been three weeks. My body wasn't used to all of the foods I used to eat. I feel too good to wreck this with bad eating now! emoticon

    Hi DeeDee,

Special occasions happen to all of us and in order to Live your new lifestyle, you have to take these into consideration and allow yourself to have fun or else you start feeling deprived and just feel like quitting. But your body, by being so bloated, is telling you that what you ate or the amount you ate did not agree with it. Try to remember that feeling the next time you are in that or a similar situation. It might keep you on track a little more. Instead of being disappointed, think about what you have learned and use that for the future. Everyone goes through the same thing, you are certainly not alone!

The important thing to remember is that each day is a new day and we can start with a clean slate! Have a great week!!

    Just don't decide to quit! Back on track today. We all make mistakes. Family and celebrations are fun and wholesome. One weekend won't wreck your good work. Just keep working. You'll be surprised how you will feel if you keep going

    I totally blew the weekend. Sigh-- and I've paid the price. It set me back on the hard-earned progress I'd made during the week. My theme this Monday is taken from Dora (Finding Nemo) to just keep swimming. Big breath and here I go.

    Sometimes we take two steps forward and one step back. This is not a lack of progress, it's called the cha-cha. Maintaining a healthy relationship with your family is an important aspect of a balanced life.

Make Today the Best Day of Your Life!
