Excellent--You are going to have to practice putting your problematic co-worker in the background where they belong.

Thanks for the support everyone.

By posting here, and acknowledging my desire to dive into the bad carbs I was about to resist and distracted myself with cleaning.

My bad day was work-related, I've been having some problems with my associates and it all was just driving me up a wall, or rather straight into the sugary carbs, but I resisted!

Over eating makes a bad day worse.

Visit some of your team mates blogs or make some new sparky friends to motivate you to make a change. If they can do it...so can you.

Here's is what you do. 1. Determine what is causing your bad day--you can actually go from there if you identify the problem. 2. If you can't put your finger on the problem, drink water, have a fruit, and do your favorite exercise. 3. If this does not work, call someone close who you could discuss your problem with. Actually, you could use us as a sounding board if you told us what was going on to make these bad days.

What made your past couple of days so hard and "BAD"? Are you trying to do everything all at once? Are you setting yourself up for failure by giving up all of your favorites or trying to fit YOUR LIFE into someone else's plan? Are you making this harder than you need to? Ask yourself what you might want to do to make things easier. Some small changes could be to simply swap a soda for a glass of water, or a piece of fruit for a brownie, or choosing a half of the brownie and skipping the second helping of potatoes. You might even ADD to your meals by planning a salad or a bowl of soup for about 20-30 minutes before your meal - you will fill up faster, eat less, and stay full longer. You might decide to take a walk, or play with the kids, or take a bike ride, play tennis, or golf. You can make this FIT YOUR LIFE if you take the time to look at things realistically and decide what you are REALLY TRULY GOING TO DO. For instance I KNEW I was not going to give up my "sweet treats" like doughnuts, brownies, or candy bars - so I found ways to fit them into my plan and MY LIFE. Now, I don't eat them so much, but I always have them available IN CASE I CHOOSE TO HAVE THEM. Only now, instead of regular size candy bars, I have mini candy bars and candy kisses, I buy doughnuts and freeze them and only thaw ONE at a time, I take half brownies, slivers of cake, etc. - AND most importantly, BECAUSE I CAN HAVE THEM, I almost never even want them any more. This doesn't work for everyone but it has worked WELL for me. Hang in there and you will succeed. Have fun and enjoy your journey.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

May I suggest yous tay away from the bad carbs???
Grab a piece of fruit instead.
If bad comes to worst don't be so angry with yourself and move on tomorrow is a new day.

Hello Team,

Today (and yesterday) have been truly awful awful days and all I want to do right now is dive into a batch of brownies, or cookies, or a loaf of bread. Pretty much anything carby and delicious.

I'm trying to stay strong and resist the urge.
