I totally gave in!!!

Monday, September 23, 2013

I totally gave in today! I did really well all day then I went to visit my mom in the nursing home and they have snack machines. I ate 4 cookies and 2 bags of doritoes like I've never had them before. I just lost it and I have been doing so well and I am so disappointed with myself. I ate like I used to eat before I started my healthy lifestyle. It was totally not what I had in mind today since I worked out this morning and everything.oh well, I will brush myself off and start anew tomorrow morning.I haven't heard from the neurosurgean yet about my back but my shoulder and UTI are doing better.well, gonna get to bed soon.Hope everyone had better luck than me today

    Carpe diem! Look forward, not back. Your second chance is at every next meal, just make sure it is a healthier one.

    We ALL have had days like parents are getting older and having more and more problems. I DO understand the stress of elder care; don't be too hard on yourself. Every morning is a new chance to make wise choices.

    We ALL do it!! I have had a good September until yesterday when I went to the Big E in MA. Only went over calories a little, BUT today has been awful.....

I'm with you, get up, dust yourself off, and get back on track.

    It happens to all of us and we need to think and do just as you said, move on and next time maybe it will only be 1 cookie or 1 bag of chips. emoticon

    You do what I do and beat yourself up for deviating. For me all it does is give me permission for more comfort foods. Give your self a break. The program I am now following allows Sunday as a reward day where you have permission for doritoes or cookies.Last week I purchased a Girl Scout cookie bar that I have wanted to try. I put it in the freezer and Sunday allowed myself to eat know what? It didn't taste as good as I thought it would. Give your self a break!

    Look at the bright side. You stopped after two snack size bags. It could have been so much worse. Today is a new day and you'll do better.

    So glad you didn't let your old habits keep you down. Be kind to yourself as seeing any one you love in a nursing home is always stressful. emoticon

    An odd day doesn't matter, but you know that. Days like this are such a contrast to the new life that they really work to show us how far we have come. emoticon

    Awwww...don't feel disappointed in yourself. There is nothing written in stone that says we can't eat chips or cookies. The fact that it came from a vending machine shows they were little bags and really, 4 cookies are better than the whole pkg like my husband ate a few months back. Lol

    It's easy to get down on ourselves.

Great job in staying focused on the big picture and knowing that tomorrow is another day!

    Do not beat yourself up! Sometimes it is just one of those days! On the bright side, you DID workout today!!! What better day to "blow it"?

It is definitely NOT like you ate before because this time you are aware of it, and are going to get back on track before it becomes a habit.

A nursing home can be an emotional place at best. I think (to quote the Yankee Grey song) All things considered "you're" doing just FINE!!!

Does OT matter how you fell, what matters is how you get back up!!! I am proud of you for getting back up without wallowing there.
