Back at it

Wow I just took a little time off from tracking and slowly but surely all the old bad habits start kicking in. First, gradually drinking more beer and more regularly after so long at giving it up altogether. Plus, not tracking calories most days for the last month, knowing that I was always going over. Now, I just totally binged while on vacation for a few days with the in laws. I ate whatever... pizza, numerous slices washed down with numerous beers. After I'd sworn off them both! You just let your guard down and the next thing you know... I had gained 6 lbs when I got back and weighed in. True, in one day I lost 3 of those lbs, they were likely water weight caused by eating too much sodium. But I digress.. here's what I ate since I can't really track it. Pizza, ice cream, beer, graham crackers, burger with goat cheese and mayonnaise, barf at the thought of more pizza, more and more...
Enough beating myself up. I'm owning it. I felt awful yesterday going for a run after drinking wine and beer and eating (you guessed it) pizza. But I felt much better today in cx works and body combat this morning. I just really want to renew my goals. So I'm one day in on a streak. Currently 156, goal weight 140. I really want the spare tire around my waist gone completely and I want to be able to run further. I want to be able to consistantly not be tempted to eat crap or at least be able to stop at just one, you know? Alright, I've come a long way but it just goes to show how damaging a slip up can be if you let it. I could really have not drank every night for 5 nights in a row. I could've used some self control. I will next time! I can't help but wonder what damage I did to my LDL cholesterol (which I'm trying to lower) and blood sugar control. *sigh*
