Boy Did I Blow It!

Monday, February 15, 2010

It's Valentine's Day...and my 8-yr-old grandson, Anthony is here. I live in a housing authority high-rise for elderly and disabled people. There was an ice cream social this afternoon, and I took Anthony, thinking I would be just fine drinking coffee. HA! I had both a sundae an an orange float. Later I gave in to the "I blew my diet, so I may as well eat." lie. A LIE it is too. It doesn't matter what else I ate, and believe it or not I stayed within my calorie range, my fat, cholesterol, carbohydrate, and sodium ranges. I didn't eat enough protein...which isn't unusual for me. Most of that makes me feel better about what I did. However, I ate nothing but JUNK after breakfast which was small and healthy.
I've been struggling with depression and the sweets made me feel better, which blows my idea that maybe I really didn't have a problem with emotional eating.
Okay, " my name is Sarah and I'm an emotional eater." "Hi, Sarah!" Oh, wrong program. Anyhow, I could use your support. Help, ideas, encouragement...whatever you want to throw my way...as long as it's not Junk Food!
I will start over again in the morning...and I am not eating any more tonight.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Sarah out.

    Remember how you feel right now, right after you ate it or when the remorse set in.. next time you go to pick up something you shouldn't - pull that feeling back in.

    I have a carmel in my purse. I pulled it out, put it back in... ;probably 10 times today. It's pure sugar. I know this.. and yes I had a great workout but that does NOT mean I get sugar!!!

    SO sweetheart... you wrote about it, you know how it felt.. hold onto that for the next time and you will WIN that battle!

    I did the same thing with pizza and low fat chocolate ice cream LOL like that helped. Today is a new day to get back on track with. What is done is done. We will have a good week.

    Wow! For blowing it, it sounds like you did really well - staying in all those ranges. So while it's a good thing you don't eat like that everyday, it doesn't sound like you did yourself too much harm.

    It doesn't sound like you set a very good example for your grandson though. Maybe if you think about that it will help you next time.

    hi Sarah,

    I am sure it was good. Treating yourself once in awhile is great to do.
    No guilt trips...ok....there is always another day......to stay on track.

    Happy late Valentines day to you :)

    hugs, paula :)

    Everyone has a bad day every once in a while. You know what you did and already decided to pick yourself and get back on the healthy living wagon. That's half the battle.

    Good luck and keep up the good work.
