June not off to a great start

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

So I got back from my awesome vacation only up a few lbs (which I expected & am OK w/ bc I was planning on getting right back on track) then factor in a few picnics and TOM pending so I am feeling very carby & gross.

I was very PUMPED about my new June Challenge on Buddy System team but I feel like I let them down today. All was going well until about 630p. I was in the car on the way to the gym and got a VM from my mom reminding me to call my g-father (it's his 89th bday!!) So I called and he told me I should come after the gym....which I quickly factored in that by the time I left the gym, got down there and got home it would've been too late to get anything done. So I rationalized family first and decided to see him. Not that I regret going to see him; I know it made him happy...I just wish I would've gone after the gym. I ended up getting home late anyway. I went to my parents' first to grab dinner (since I only had a snack pre-gym) and just go w/ them...but I would've prob been better off stopping for a healthy sandwich or salad. My parent's house is a trouble zone for me. Dinner was angel hair pasta & mushrooms (no protein!) and then I decided to graze on some cookies and choc (used TOM excuse) but this is what happens when I go there. It's like my self control goes out the window. So now did I not only NOT work out now I'm eating crap. AWESOME. On one hand I am mad bc I let myself & my team down and on the other hand I don't want to be negative bc I am sure tmrw will be a better I will choose to be positive!

Where is the line between staying positive and promising to do better tmrw and just using the "I will do better tmrw excuse"?? after day. Bc I feel like I use that one way too often!! When will I ever want this bad enough??

    I think you made a good choice by spending time with the family. 89 is quite a milestone and it is awesome that you made him a priority! Diet and exercise will always be there so it is important to cherish the time that you have with family!

    Today is a new day so make the best of it!

    I am so excited about June- dont STRESS! in fact- get up- dust off- and start over again. I used to use the same excuses- and YOU GUESSED IT~ one day I just quit giving the excuses (well- they come farther and farther apart- and that is pretty cool!)

    Sometimes life happens and we have to make unexpected choices. There is nothing wrong with having to change plans, just get back on track as soon as possible and don't let yourself feel guilty over it.

    I could have written this myself. I am on Team 4 and feel that I too have let my team down and not off to a good start. BUT tomorrow is another day and we can get back on track and make up for it in the next 29 days! Good luck!

    dont beat yourself up. It was very important to visit your grandfather. at 89, he probably doenst have many birthdays left. Today is only June 1, so just remember you still have 29 days left of this month to do good. dont dwell on the one bad day (in your opinion) and focus on the great visit you had and the planning you will do tomorrow to do better. you can do this. we are here for you. emoticon
