Vicious cycle!

Thursday, September 26, 2013

On a whim, we went out to lunch on Tuesday. I carelessly ordered what I wanted, and tracked later. Holy moly, I had no idea it would tally up so high!! An amazingly huge lunch for a normal-sized plate, over 2000 calories and 100 grams of fat! So I chugged water, took a walk, and tried not to berate myself. Tomorrow's a new day, after all.

So yesterday I took my daughter to the movies, which is also a restaurant and I splurged on lunch there, too. Plus popcorn, at least we didn't get extra butter :P . After we were done there, I didn't feel like exercising, we just went home and took a nap, lol! Ugh. Eating out is so bad!!! Duh. So then I'm feeling bad, and all what's the point, and overate for dinner too.

So this morning, the scale is UP! I'm feeling down. Apparently feeling down makes me want to eat crap food, which only keeps me feeling crappy! Time to get out of that rut before I get in too deep.

Today's a good day to make sure I eat well, exercise and drink my water!

    Ahh, we all have moments/meals/days, and sometimes even weeks like that. Starting again is always the hardest part, but you can do it. Just get back in the saddle and don't look back! Sometimes if I've had several days of overeating, I use my tracker and ramp myself down to what my calorie intake should be. That way, it doesn't feel like as much of a shock to my body to get back on track.

    Been there, done that...repeatedly! Eating out is not my friend, either. But we can choose what to eat and whether to do our workouts. It depends on what we "really" want. (I have to set my sights on the longer range want rather than the short term counterproductive want.) There's a lot to be said for researching what you'd eat if you went to a certain restaurant before you find yourself there with no idea of what is reasonable for nutrition and calories.

    emoticon ... it takes planning....plan before you go as to what you will eat, then remember you are worth the effort it takes to reach your goals...
forget what went wrong and dwell on what went can be a good day

    Oh my. Been there done that.
Come on Emily. emoticon Less than a year to go before the big day. You and I both want you to be one HOT bride. I've had a couple "not as good as they shoulda been" days too.
Tuesday = no workout :( Yesterday = not the best nutrition. But like you said today is a NEW DAY! I'm ready to do this. WE CAN do this. How does that quote go?...... One year from today you'll wish you would have started today? When I say KEEP GOING I don't mean backwards.
New goal = cut down on emoticon s. LOL You with me?
