It Just Doesn't Matter

Friday, March 19, 2010

This has been one rocky week for me.

My weigh-in it tomorrow morning and the truth will be told as to whether or not I stumbled a little or a lot. I suspect all will be well, but I definitely strayed from my program. I did no strength exercises Tues-Thurs and missed my cardio yesterday. There was definitely emotional eating going on for those days as well, with calorie overages three days.

I've been under additional stress regarding #1 son and my fibromyalgia has been kicking my booty.

The nice thing about all of this is that when I succumbed to emotional eating I still made healthy choices. So yes, I was ravenous, but the things I ate were still nutritious and healthy.

The other good thing is... even though I am still dragging physically, I have no worries that I have lost my motivation to be a healthy person. I'll get back to my high level of activity and goal adherence as soon as I am able to physically. Then I think I'll try to strategize how to make better choices the next time I take a nose-dive with the fibromyalgia.

For instance, I didn't feel up to going grocery shopping to replenish my fresh fruit supply, so my fruit intake plummeted. If it's not here I can't eat it. I probably should have run to the store JUST for the fruit and left everything else for later, you know?

    Realizing and understanding what is going on is over half the battle. You are still making good choices, and if the scale shows a small setback, don't sweat it! The scale is just one component of this process to getting health - and you are well on your way!

    You are doing great. Just keep it going! That's a great idea to think ahead so you have choices in mind for the rougher days. I need to do that myself; so thanks for the thought. You did great, you still chose well even if it wasn't perfect, you still make good choices. Don't beat yourself up if you have bad days. just remember tomorrow is a nice day to start fresh all over again. You should be proud at how far you've come so far! emoticon emoticon
