So self critical...

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

All morning I have been down on myself because I overate yesterday. About 2400 calories…

I had been eating well all day, until about 6 PM. I was hungry so I ate dinner. (a not very tasting vegetable beef soup). I wasn't satisfied, so I ate more... Hmm, still not feeling satisfied, so I grabbed a handful of chocolate covered almonds. (Now at this point, I would still have been within my calorie range) But I was still roaming around. I then ate 2 chocolate covered cherries, and then found a bag of dark chocolate M&Ms. Please..... the big bag that was only about 2/3 gone.

So you can see why I was disgusted with myself. Why didn't I stop with the chocolate covered almonds? Why did I have to keep going? Then I had a shower thought. I did a lot of really good things yesterday. I got my 6 fruits and veggies, I drank 20 glassed of water, I walked 2.3 miles at 5 AM, then in the afternoon went to the gym for strength training and some cardio on the elliptical. It was a good day. I did some overeating from 6 to 6:45. Why is it that all I remembered this morning when I woke up was that 45 minutes of overeating? I need to cut myself some slack... And figure out a plan to nip it in the bud if it happens again.

    Great post - that happens to me as well but I am glad you could see that you did achieve great things! I try to now look at things on a weekly basis so if I kill one day than I try to even it out over the week.

    Know that your not alone, I've been having the very same thing.
    But together we can get over this hurdle.

    I think your doing great!
    I also thought I'd might add get rid of the sweet stuff...that's BIG thing I've learned on here at SP getting the junk food out.
    I only have the sweet stuff just about 20 % of my week.

    It sounds like you're on the right track for nipping it in the bud. Me? I did a little of the same thing last night and what did I do first thing this morning...? Weighed myself and had a 1 lb gain (I know, it's not real weight gain) I also need to find a solution to stopping the overeating before it happens and I think mine was triggered by being too hungry before dinner and then not having my evening "ritual" skinny cow for dessert!

    It really sounds like all in all you had a great day yesterday, and, really, it's what happens today that matters now.

    Thanks for posting this blog and making me think about what I can do to prevent these blips in the journey. You are an inspiration to me.

    Blessings, Sarah
