To Hell in a Handbasket...


Friday, October 04, 2013

Seems like an appropriate, though ancient, saying to describe how I feel about today. This morning, I went to the emoticon food bank for this month's pickup. Like I always do, I gave back several things that don't belong in our house - a large package of emoticon almond bark, emoticon a whole cake, emoticon powdered (yucky!) coffee "creamer." So far, so good, right? But there was this 8-1/2 oz bag...

It was like an instant scream from my eyes to my brain - CHIPS! CHEDDAR AND SOUR CREAM CHIPS! So I didn't give them back, mistake #1. Then I put them on the passenger seat, mistake #2. And I opened them, mistake #3. I started to eat them straight from the bag, unmeasured, mistake #4. So I scarfed them all the way home, secret eating, mistake #5. All this in the space of -what? - maybe emoticon 10 minutes. It was only after I pulled into the driveway that the emoticon demon crawled back to whatever rock he'd been lurking under, and reason could begin to return.

emoticon So I weighed what was left (2-1/2 oz), tracked 6 oz as lunch ('cause I knew I wouldn't be eating anything in half a hour when I served Paul and Sean), and tossed the rest in the trash. emoticon

That was more than 7 hours ago. I'm still not hungry. So I've let my BLC True Blue teammates down today on our weekend challenge, as well as just doing something really dumb to myself. I really don't see myself getting 7 freggies emoticon emoticon in today, because I really don't think I'll have room. I really need to fix some emoticon lean protein, too, to get even to the bottom of my range. I have 8 glasses of water down, and I'll definitely hit 10. emoticon It would probably be wise to hit 12-14, because of the excessive sodium intake, but I might not have room.

I did manage 60 minutes of emoticon cardio, and I got in my 30 minutes of emoticon decluttering in Erik and Sean's room. I still have time to do some emoticon ST this evening. I'm also planning to get a head start on tomorrow's freggies emoticon emoticon emoticon by getting some roasting done.

That's the best I can do now, so that's what I will do! I'm off to grab my resistance band!

    Pamela, don't feel bad about a brief lapse. We all have those moments of "giving in" to that little emoticon voice inside but it's how you handle the "after" that really counts.
emoticon on getting right back on the weight loss wagon. You didn't let down your team, instead you've set an example on how to "pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again."

    In religious terms, you sinned, felt deep sorrow, accepted the consequences, and determined never, ever to eat potato chips like that again. You have to forgive yourself, and we are all on your side, understanding what you did and why you did it. Best to you!

    Been there, done that! Lots of water is good for the sodium intake. Hang in there. The devil made you do it. emoticon

Tomorrow is another day! (How many of these can I come up with?)

    I totally sympathise about the crisps - I can almost taste that sharp, salty taste just reading your blog. I don't think I'd have had the strength of character to throw the rest away!
As the others have said one mistake is not the end of the world, and by the sound of it you are making up for it with exercise and tomorrow's vegetables!

Those few seconds across the tongue sure are great . . .
but isn't it amazing how those chips land like a rock in your stomach.

Tomorrow's a new day. Make the most of it!!!!

We all sabotage ourselves once in a while, the trick is we have to stop beating ourselves up and climb back on the horse and trot off.

    You have done the right things when a mistake is made. So . . . you can move on (which you sound like is happening). Good for you.

HUGS and hope tomorrow is a bit easier day.

    You'll get past this! It's just a small bump in the road. emoticon

    Don't be too hard on yourself and DO give yourself credit for working around that chip trap!
