Man...did I fall off the wagon

Monday, September 22, 2008

Well....This is Saturday was my 26th birthday. My boyfriend and I had a party together at a local restaurant/bar that we had planned for months. I did not go to the gym at all this weekend and completely did not pay attention to what i ate or drank which is terrible. Everyone kept telling me it's your birthday weekend you should eat/drink what you want...and I unfortunately listened. Starting today I need to really watch my diet and make sure I don't skip the gym...If anyone has any words of wisdom it would really help..It worries me that I stopped my healthy lifestyle as soon as I did...and I dont want to fall out of it again...

    Don't dwell on the past. It is unrealistic to think that you are not going to have set backs. You indulged yourself over the weekend and hopefully you had a great time celebrating your birthday. Now what is important is that you let it go and get back on your Spark routine.

    It's hard to say that deviating from your healthy lifestyle (because you're not on a diet!) wont happen ever again. It's all about moderation... and you're friends were right, it was your BIRTHDAY! If there is any time all year to indulge yourself, it's your b-day.

    The guilt you feel now is a double edge sword. On one side, the guilt motivates you to get back into your healthy lifestyle after enjoying yourself, but the down side is that the guilt will eat u up inside and cause you to falter more.

    I say the next time you celebrate something, be prepared to indulge yourself! If you can, make better choices when it comes to food you're going to eat... I'm not saying order the salad instead of the N.Y. Steak, just maybe skip the appeitizers / cocktails/dessert or order healthier sides with it. Have the steak with more veggies / salad / baked potato instead of fries. And nix the gravy!

    Try only eatting half! That way you eat what you want, and you have leftovers for the next day. This way you eat less, but you get to eat that awsome dinner twice!

    Good luck and happy belated bday! emoticon
