Food Blowout! However, I am Not Browbeating Myself!

Friday, November 08, 2013

Sandra, my still-new coworker and I were in the mood to eat out today. Neither one of us has eaten out in months. We ultimately went to Scotty's Seafood. She insisted on fried calamari appetizer. Then there was the chewy wonderful bread. I had salmon tacos and dessert.
Thus, I blew my promise about sugar.

My promise about soda is still intact.

I don't know why I am not down on myself - that is not my normal response.

I have no desire for dinner tonight.

I am working both jobs tomorrow, so it will be a very long day. I will lose a bit of money with the shorter hours at job #2, but I will really appreciate the OT at job #1!

    Good for you for not beating yourself up about it because in the end, that won't do you any good. Learn and move forward!

    So good your aren't beating yourself up about one meal out in months!!! Sounds like a pretty good meal overall, and hopefully you had a really nice time.

    You were better having the dessert than not having it and then overdoing it later. You are slowly but surely madding some headway. emoticon

    I too went a little overboard on food (including dessert) last night. I am doing exactly what you did: not beating myself up, AND making the next choice a good one.

I hope you had a happy Oct. Mine was great! Very busy, but good. I was doing a great job of losing in July, Aug, and Sept, but Oct. was just maintaining. On one hand, I'm happy to know that I can be a traveling fool, eat what I want, exercise sporadically, and STILL maintain. I hope things are going well with you.

    Every day is a new day, that's why it's called the "present".

    Some days, you just have to kick over the traces and let it be. Harness up tomorrow!

    I think it's wonderful you're not down on yourself. It is was it is and time to go to the next day, just like you're doing--no time for negative feelings! Besides, one dessert or the odd overeating of daily calories is not bad--it's life ;-). Hope you have a super weekend.

    One misstep happens, if it is not a new pattern you will jump right back on track.

    Like you said, its rare you eat out and very good for you not beating yourself up over it.
You can get back at it.
Unfortunately, you will be so busy tomorrow you might not even have time to eat or prepare a meal properly, so just do the best you can make the choices as nutritious as possible!

    Guilt serves no purpose and keeps us stuck in the past. Enjoying an excellent restaurant meal is a good thing, as long as it is a treat and not a habit.

    I'm glad you're not down on yourself about this indulgence. It happens to the best of us. I think you've reached that point where you realize that the occasional 'oops' is not the end of the world after all, and that you know you can get right back on track again. =)
