Absolutely Horrible Eating Week

Friday, September 13, 2013

When I blog, albeit rarely, I try to impart some message that not only reflects my honest thoughts, but will hopefully reach others as well. This is not one of those blogs. This is a purely selfish ranting blog. Sigh.

This week has been the eating week from H - E - Double hockey sticks. For real. Late night snacking on junk, loss of control, no exercising, no logging food, just... everything blah. Everything Spark People says what not to do.

My excuse? This is my holiday season (I'm Jewish) and there is a lot of food around. It's like Thanksgiving cubed. And it's not even over. Maintenance? Forget it. If I gain a mere two pounds it will be a victory.

So in the meantime I'm going to try to limit the damage, rather than throw my hands up completely. I'm going to practice the act of self-compassion and forgive myself. I'm not going to compare myself to the New York Fashion Week models and bloggers and fashion divas, because that would be just ridiculous. I'm going to love myself, and promise myself to get back on track when I am able to commit myself more fully. I think that sounds good, don't you?

    This is a hard time of year if you are Jewish but like Phebess said - let your fast on Yom Kippur be your starting point to begin again. You can do it!

    That's why Yom Kippur is a fast day, so you can start over with a clean slate!

    It's much easier to treat yourself well when you love yourself and want to do good for your body and mind. :) It's also important to remember that all those models, bloggers & fashion divas present themselves in a very calculated way and don't ALWAYS look that perfect.

    "Oh... this fashion blogger just happens to be posed in such a way that the light falls perfectly on her face and the wind just happens to be blowing her hair slightly."
