Mistake #:1

Who made this mistake? I did

What was the mistake? Losing focus

When did the mistake happen? Past 6 weeks

Where did this mistake happen?

Why did the mistake happen? Its because Im too caught up with the last of my study.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY?
Feel like Im always behind with my school work and feel guilty if if I do other stuff.

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Hurry up and finish my work because there isn't long to go now! Think about how 'free' I will be in 4 weeks time and that this situation can't be changed but is only temporary.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Don't study again for awhile or commit myself to something that is so intrusive to my plans, goals etc.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- Log my food/exercise on SP
2- Get some exercise this week of some/any description.
3- Join a new supportive challenges.

Mistake #:2

Who made this mistake? I did

What was the mistake? Over eating and over eating unhealthy food this weekend

When did the mistake happen? Saturday and Sunday

Where did this mistake happen? At a friend's house.

Why did the mistake happen? We got junk food for the Super Bowl. We didn't cook dinner on Saturday so we just got fast food.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY?
I just don't try that hard on the weekend to control my eating or to even think about healthy eating. I just go with the flow and don't put up any fight.

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Start thinking about the weekends in advance. Voicing options about meals. Planning meals for the weekend. Just thinking about it at all in advance would help.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Resolve to eat healthy. One snack/dessert or whatever is okay...but I need to be determined that I wouldn't let that be the WHOLE weekend.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- Think about this coming weekend and what we can eat.
2- Choose a healthy option, even if it's just me---They will totally be fine with it.
3- Be active during the weekends--when I'm advice I generally eat better.

Mistake #: 1

Who made this mistake? ME

What was the mistake? Ate a crap load of funfetti cupcakes yesterday with funfetti frosting...um, I ate 11 of them

When did the mistake happen? yesterday

Where did this mistake happen? at my house, in my kitchen, in my living room

Why did the mistake happen? because I decided to bake cupcakes for my cheat day

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? because I haven't had sugary treats in a while so I thought it would be ok

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Limit my portions, I am not upset about eating cupcakes it's the amount that is a problem. I should only buy single portion desserts.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Buy single servings or healthy options like low fat ice scream or something

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- It's the weekends that are the problem so I should plan my meals before the weekend
2- I should stock up on the sweet/healthy stuff at home or at least write a list of what I can get
3-Eat well all week & put in my all re: exercising & tracking

Mistake #: 1

Who made this mistake? I did.

What was the mistake? I ate two scoops of ice cream.

When did the mistake happen? This afternoon, when my friend was visiting from out of town.

Where did this mistake happen? At the dairy farm store nearby when we went to buy skim milk to make yogurt.

Why did the mistake happen? I made the mistake because the ice cream cones baking smelled so good, and because eating sweets is an activity I'm used to enjoying with this friend, and I wanted to hang out with him a little longer. I lacked the willpower to say no to the rows and rows of delicious ice cream in front of me.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? Beneath this episode is the emotional comfort I seek in eating sweet foods (ice cream being a top favorite) rather than in a spiritual connection with my concept of the divine, or in human relationships. Also, underlying this mistake was my habit of socializing over unhealthy food, and not telling my friend that I'm trying to lose weight.

How can I resolve the underlying reason?
The journey towards seeking emotional comfort from my spirituality and personal relationships rather than food is long, but every day when I make good choices I can reinforce my path. Energy follows intention, and is strengthened by small successes.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? With my friend, I can tell him that I am trying to lose weight and ask for his support when we are hanging out, and maybe we can do active, playful things together rather than sedentary, sweet-eating things.

And when I return to the dairy farm store on my own, I can avoid making the same mistake by eating a healthy meal before I go, and maybe treating myself to a small dish of homemade nonfat vanilla yogurt (I'm making it tonight!) sweetened with Truvia, which tastes really good and is not so bad for me.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- tell my friend I'm trying to lose weight
2- make my own nonfat yogurt
3-every day make progress towards finding fulfillment in my spirituality and personal relationships rather than sugary/fatty foods, for instance, by praying or calling a friend or loved one instead of binge eating.

First of all...VIRGOGURL4 this is such a great idea!

Mistake #:1

Who made this mistake? I did

What was the mistake? I went WAY over calorie range and didn't workout today

When did the mistake happen? today

Where did this mistake happen? home/perkins

Why did the mistake happen? I was mindlessly or emotionally eating instead of thinking about the choices I was making and what I was putting into my body.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? I didn't plan ahead when we went out to Perkins...I should have researched the calorie values and made my choice ahead of time.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?

2- Make it a point to get exercise in tomorrow, maybe extra time if I can do it
3-Plan my meals ahead even for at home...that way I already know whats for dinner and I stay within calorie range without worrying at the last minute

What was the mistake? eating more than I'm supposed to

When did the mistake happen? @ 30 minutes ago

Where did this mistake happen? in the kitchen

Why did the mistake happen? because I was upset about my husband not being home

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? because it's easier to give in & eat than it is to acknowledge that I am insecure and needy
How can I resolve the underlying reason? truly, I dunno; HELP ME, PLEASE!

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? i don't know, I have to get creative; my bedroom is off the kitchen

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1-acknowledge that I am human, and make mistakes
2-1- Plan ahead - I know what my weaknesses are, I should be able to plan a strong strategy to overcome them
3-prepare a healthy snack to have when I come home from a meeting or whatever

Who made this mistake? Me

What was the mistake? Ate too much sugar/junk yesterday

When did the mistake happen? yesterday

Where did this mistake happen? home, in my kitchen

Why did the mistake happen? I made excuses to cheat myself/break my goals

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY?

I see food as a reward and "medicine" when I am not feeling well. Also, I tend to make excuses for excess calories when I exercise.

How can I resolve the underlying reason?

Realize there are other ways to celebrate than to eat sugary foods. Also, recognize that I am undoing the benefits of a good workout by refueling on unhealthy food rather than healthy food. SUGAR IS NOT MEDICINE AND WILL NOT MAKE ME FEEL BETTER :)
Last but not least, pick and choose one satisfying treat rather than have a ton of cheats.
How can I avoid making the same mistake again?

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- Plan ahead - I know what my weaknesses are, I should be able to plan a strong strategy to overcome them
2- Always refuel on healthy foods after working out
3- Ask myself "why" before cheating. Try to recognize unhealthy associations w/ food (i.e. Am I eating to make myself feel better?) and come up with a more effective alternative

What was the mistake? Food choices last night. Dessert twice.

When did the mistake happen? Last night.

Where did this mistake happen? At our friends' house.

Why did the mistake happen? I was not even thinking about controlling my portion or figuring out a healthy food to eat. I just went with everyone else.

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Understand that everyday counts. That I have to make the choices of what I eat and I can say no even if everyone else is getting some.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Think because just eating everything.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?

Mistake #: 1

Who made this mistake? Me

What was the mistake? Ate a piece of cake

When did the mistake happen? Last night

Where did this mistake happen? In my living room watching TV

Why did the mistake happen? My landlady brought it despite the fact that I had asked her no to bring me anything sweet. She is 87 and I can't say no to her,
she is always bringing me food and I feel bad saying no.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? Because I always say OK, just once and then I can't stop.

How can I resolve the underlying reason?
I have to learn to say no. I was doing really well,
I started a streak last monday of "No sweets 7 X week"
and I didn't have anything at all until last night.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again?
Since I can't say no to her, I could take the food and put it in the trash, I did that on Tuesday when she brought me a cup cake but last night that cake looked soooo good that I had to have it. The good part was that the piece was not big and after I ate half I felt that it was too sweet (?) and I put the other half in the trash so I couldn't eat it later.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- Forgive my self and start over
2- Learn to say NO
3- Allow myself to have something sweet once a week
and not go crazy about it.

Mistake #: 1

Who made this mistake? Me

What was the mistake? Buying a morning tea snack from the work canteen. an unhealthy one with loads of fat.

When did the mistake happen? This morning

Where did this mistake happen? At work

Why did the mistake happen? Because I wanted something hot for morning tea and hadn't bought in any healthy hot food that i could eat. I had a cold salad in the fridge as well as a tuna snack, both of which i like and am looking forward to eating today.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY? Because I wasn't prepared with healthy food choices to replace my bad ones. Food preparation and planning is my biggest hurdle at the moment. (and thats saying alot considering i have an injury that prevents me from walking and running!)

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Prepare a plan for 1-2 weeks ahead and then make the food. cater for my known preferences. ie. hot, cold food, snacks...

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Make sure i have packed both hot and cold food options (meals and snacks) for work OR accept the fact that if i'm not prepared i still need to eat healthy options that may not be my preferance at the time.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- make a shopping list of ingredients to buy on the way home from work tonight for both hot and cold snacks and main meals.
2- find and pick some snack recipes (for hot healthy snacks - open to ideas anyone!?)
3- write up a food plan for the rest of the week and make sure i have prepared food in time. On thursday night, prepare my plan for the coming week so i can shop and prepare food on the weekend.

Mistake #: 1

Who made this mistake? I made the mistake.

What was the mistake? I did not track my calories and i didn't work out.

When did the mistake happen? Thrusday-Saturday

Where did this mistake happen? At home.

Why did the mistake happen? I was limiting myself so much during the last couple of weeks that i couldn't take it anymore and sort of gave up.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? I wasn't planning ahead like i used to, so the meals i was creating weren't satisfying me (I used to plan out healthy alternatives for foods that i love). Also, i was just being lazy. I don't get to see my Fiance a lot during the week and i used that as an excuse to not go to the gym.

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Start focusing on myself. I need to take care of me before i can take care of anyone else. I also need to keep in mind that i want to be a healthy mom so my kids won't be raised with these same bad habits.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Plan out my meals a week ahead of time like i used to so that it includes healthy versions of some unhealthy comfort foods that i love.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1-Talk to my Fiance about my goals and remind him that i need support and for him to help keep me accountable.
2-Get enough sleep so that i can get up earlier to work out so that it doesn't cut into time with my Fiance.
3-Plan out the week's meals ahead of time instead of figuring it out when i get home, or while i'm at work.

SLIP-UP RECOVERY TEMPLATE:

Mistake #1: overate

Who made this mistake? because I didn't eat breakfast and what I didn't order what I should have at a fast food place.

What was the mistake? Ordered a large burger instead of a small burger.

When did the mistake happen? Yesterday

Where did this mistake happen? at a fast food place

Why did the mistake happen? because I let myself get hungry.

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY?

I was hungry and ordered the wrong item.

How can I resolve the underlying reason? Eat breakfast.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again? Remember that nothing taste as good as skinny feels.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- always order small burger
2- remember that nothing taste as good as skinny feels.
3- remember, I don't need any more than a couple of bits to taste the food. I don't have to eat it all.


Aim for the stars and enjoy the view while getting there.

Mirrorball, I love it!!!!

Writing it out makes you actually realize and baby step through your actions.

I felt a sense of "AHA" just from reading your Slip-Up Recovery. This just may work.

Mistake #1:

Who made this mistake? Me

What was the mistake? overate at a party

When did the mistake happen? 1/2/11

Where did this mistake happen? friend's house

Why did the mistake happen? I didn't resist the bread and cheese appetizers

What's the underlying reason why I made this mistake? In other words: WHY THE WHY?
I've been thinking about this today and I realized I think of food as a person, something I need to pay attention to. It seems like everyone is always eating, and I want to fit in and have fun. But in retrospect I realize everyone isn't always eating - it's just that at any given moment, SOMEONE is always eating. So if I take a bite everytime SOMEONE takes a bite, I'll be eating all evening! But if I try to match my eating to just one person - perhaps my naturally slender friend who still loves to eat but just doesn't overdo it - I would eat much less.

How can I resolve the underlying reason?
First of all, realize food is an inanimate object and will not feel hurt if I ignore it! Secondly, realize I'm there to focus on my friends, not the food.

How can I avoid making the same mistake again?
Match my eating to just one person, rather than taking a bite everytime "someone, anyone" takes a bite.

What are three SPECIFIC action steps that I can truly commit to right away?
1- Keep exercising every day
2- Drink lots of water
3- Self correct by eating only when I'm truly hungry today
