Sad but true...

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

So today my husband came home from a trip days earlier that we both had expected, and I love that he is home (I really do), but in a way it makes me alittle sad to know that he is now home and my goals for the week usually suffer........totally my fault, though.

When he is home it is harder for me to eat healthy and not that he doesn't want to eat with me, it just I have this mindset that when he is around I can eat whatever I want too. THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE!!!

And that will only CHANGE with me!!!

I need to stop saying to myself, "oh, he is home this weekend, we need to go out to dinner for every meal, I can eat that, its a special night, Will is home".....GRRRRR.......and then I hate myself for it!!! I need to remember that this program is not a diet, it is about changing my life and getting healthy again. Regardless of what the scale says every morning, if I ate healthy, drank all my water and did some from of exercise the day before, than I am doing alright!!! If i could just convince myself of this every morning when I see the number......... emoticon

    D, you're right: it is a special day when your hubby is home! You're newly married and it's hard to have your someone away so often. Of course, and this is a GOOD problem, you've married someone who adores you the way you are and is supportive of you day in and day out. So, perhaps you could make those special days even more special by cooking a healthy meal together... or make some of your favorites at home. He loves to cook, so set him to it!

    Either way, you're right... if you drank water and continued you're walking you'd be doing great no matter what... and I think you still are!

    I dont know how helpful they are but did you do the visual reminders they tell you to do when you first join Sparkpeople? I havent done mine yet - printer broke - but I think it would be helpful. I have the same problem in a way - its like there are so many reasons to declare a day special. Aaaarrrgggghhh. Then the painful truth emerges as you struggle to fit into your clothes.
    If you ever figure a way out of this, let me know!
    ASAP. lol.
