Life is a struggle

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

"We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our worst enemies." - Roderick Thorpe

I flamed out yesterday. Made a cake before going to work. My usual MO - slice it up and share it out - did that. After distributing, I had a piece left because one of the recipients was not a work. I ate it. Went home for lunch and ate another piece. Mentally, I just wanted to binge. Went for exercise after work and while exercising I am planning to have a Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich with fries and coca cola. I worked out so hard that I was exhausted. Went to Wendy's ordered my son's food and for me - baked potato with sour cream and a side salad. I was proud of me.

Went home, cooked a steak (8oz). 1st serving - cut the steak in half and had half of the baked potato with butter (no sour cream). I'll take the rest for lunch the next day. After eating and waiting 10 minutes (I think it is supposed to be 20 mins) I was still hungry and ate the remainder of the steak and potato. I did not use the sour cream. I did drink a liter of water and a glass of ice tea.

What do I do? I do good and then bad. It's a struggle.

I want success. emoticon

    Sometimes, you just have to give in to your cravings; deprivation is so anti-motivational. ;)

Your body was telling you something, that's all. So, you'll do better tomorrow - if you haven't already today. Life goes on and you're supposed to enjoy it, now and then.

    It is a struggle but you do so good most of time. Plus I don't think you did that bad. It could have been a lot worse. I still think you are awesome. emoticon

    It is hard,isn't it. I'm trying to encourage my team to open up their senses while they exercise. Do you walk on the treadmill? Listen to the sounds around - not just the voices and what they are saying, but the little noises that the different machines make, etc etc. It helps to keep focus and also makes me forget about the food that follows.
