10-4 Good buddy

Friday, October 04, 2013

Welcome to October 4. Get it, 10-4 good buddy! bah ha!

Boy did I overdo it yesterday! It started innocent enough, two slices of thin pizza, half a can of RC. I got all my freggies in yesterday, all my water, ate light during the day so it was all good.


AND THEN, we went to the wine tasting at the wine store near our house. No worries, it's five sips of wine, all good. AND THEN the chocolates came in from the chocolate of the month club DH signed me up for a few months ago (at the wine store). Still, no worries, I've been very good about making that small box last. The SP Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge taught me well.

AND THEN, we hit the Mexican resturant down the street with friends. Everything went south, I split steak nachos with DH and had a strawberry margarita. We had a good time, good laughs, then at home I hit the bag of oreos and dug into the chocolate of the month club while watching Grey's Anatomy.

So hitting the reset button today! I have a healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks packed for work. It's rainy and humid so walking breaks will be indoors. We have a junior high school sized gymnasium here at work so I do ten laps one direction, then 10 laps the other direction. I walk briskly on the long stretches and slowly on the short stretches to vary intensity.

The weather should be fine when I get home so I will run. Or plan B will be the elliptical. And water, water and more water today. I got two cups in before my morning coffee.

I had DH pick up the ingredients I need for Coach Nicole's pumpkin apple waffles that I will make this weekend in addition to plenty of fruits and veggies.

So I'm gonna hammer down with my activity till I get to the chicken coup on Sunday (Translation: I'm going to speed up on activity till I get to the weigh station aka weigh-in day on Sunday).

Now for your viewing and listening pleasure on this 10-4, I leave you with East Bound and Down from Smokey and the Bandit, a favorite of mine when I was a kid. I just love Burt Reynold's laugh!

Catch ya on the flip flop!

    Will power just wears out when subjected to too many sequential challenges. To be expected, no biggy. Reset and do-over is gonna work just fine.

    Wine, chocolate and Mexican? Wow, then oreos? I've been known to do that to.
    Fortunately, that reset button works. Good for you for hitting it,

    Sure, not your first choice but one day of it won't make a difference in the grand scheme. Good for you for adjusting and getting back on track - that is the hardest part for me.

    And oh yes, I loved Smoky and the Bandit. (And I once rode in the elevator for about 20 floors with Burt Reynolds. He was very-very nice! I'll never forget our chat.)

    It sounds to me like you started out great, but with temptation after temptation, you finally caved! At least that's what would have happened to me. I can only be "strong" for so long.

    I love your attitude -- no recriminations, no guilt, no breast-beating -- just "I'm hitting the reset button today." emoticon

    Sounds like you had fun. We all get derailed, better to be over good times with friends than emotionial eating in the corner.

    You'll be back on track in no time.

    Oof, I hate to say it but it sounds like you had some major fun, hee. But now you have a great plan for getting back to center and that's good, too. I'm probably dating myself but I still remember most of the words to 'Convoy', and old truckers song from the late 70's--so I got a big laugh out of your 'going to the chicken coop'! LOL Great blog!

    I am not a teetotaler, but I seldom drink anymore because I lose those inhibitions that keep me on the right path for eating. Also, I don't want all the carbs in the alcohol.

    Today will be great. Besides, it's OK to splurge, we just know we can't do it everyday anymore!

    You had a good time with your DH. You've got great plans for resetting your program. You're all good!!

    I think it was something in the air, because yesterday it all went downhill for me as well. And I feel ashamed because I didn't get any exercise in.
    I definitely hit the rest button this morning!
    I think we deserve to have these off days occasionally as long as it doesn't become an everyday habit.
    I know we can do it!
    Have a great weekend!

    Your plans to get back on track sound great. We go wine tasting also, and I have to watch that it does not lead into eating things off plan. Have a great day on your new plan.
