I was sooo bad today.

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

I went to lunch today with my two boys and my husband. Of course they wanted Mexican food. I ate a small portion of food, it was just over loaded with calories. This is the first "screw up" I have had and I feel awful. I met the calorie intake, went over on my sodium and fat. Ugh. I can't believe that it never bothered me to eat probably "double" what I did today. I had no will power when it came to the chips and salsa. They tasted soooo damn good. I was soooo stuffed when I "almost rolled" out of there. That won't be happening again. I did come home and did my 30 minute power walk and drank lots of water hoping to wash all that salt away. Tomorrow I go to do lab work and Monday I have a dr. appt. I haven't been to the dr. in more than six months. I am anxious to see my test results since I have been eating right. I am also anxious to get on that scale in the doctor office. My last dr. visit I weighed in at 288 and I was shocked because I honestly felt I weighed over 300. We will see what happens Monday.

    I think you should be proud of yourself for going home, power walking and increasing your water. How many times have *I* screwed up and said "eh, screw it, i'm having whatever I want because I already screwed up - might as well blow it the rest of the day." I've said it far too many times to count.

    You're human - chips and salsa are definitely kryptonite!! But also remember, you were enjoying time with your family and in the end, that's why we're making these changes. Not just for us, but for THEM as well.

    It's so easy to focus on the negative, as we're trained on focusing that way, and not on the positive. Think of the way you USED to do things - you would probably eat twice as much, literally roll out of the mexican joint, then go home and sit on the couch, watching T.V. or a movie and mindlessly eat something else. I know that's how I was. But YOU are making a difference - You made a conscious effort to balance out your so-called screw up at lunch. Kudos you!! That deserves celebration! emoticon

    Are you serious? Am I hearing you diss yourself over one little food attack? Ohhhh girl, read YOUR blog again!

    You are emoticon

    You came home & did a power walk and drank lots of liquids to help flush out your system. That's amazing! Good girl.

    Just because you are changing your life to a new & healthier better you, does not mean you are perfect. That will never happen. So understand that some days you will take a few steps back. Some days you will do something unhealthy. Some days, you will make mistakes. That's life.

    But the key is in your blog. You won't let that stop your momentum. You will just pick yourself right back up and get back on track.

    Kudos for you on posting this blog. You got it off your chest and out there. But even better is your recognition of the not-so-good choices and your desire to get-it-right.

    I think you are doing fabulous! Please, please don't beat yourself up. You are an amazing woman on an amazing journey. And you know you are not alone.

    We are ALL here for you!!!

    I agree with the others. One day does not hurt, it's when we beat ourselves up so much that we say "that's it I messed up might as well quit". I'm speaking from experience here.
    Last night I took my Mom and Dad out for their 70th wedding anniversary and Dad wanted to go to the Chinese buffet. I almost cried. I haven't been to a buffet for a very long time. But it was Dad's choice. I'm sure I ate too much, I didn't even know how to log it all on. But I did make sensible choices. Stayed away from the fried stuff and didn't eat my usual fried donuts and egg rolls. Today is another day and I feel great.
    I can't wait to see your post on what the doctors scale says. You are doing great. emoticon

    Oh don't beat yourself up....one day does not a success make OR break! Seriously, sometimes those days where there are little cheats are the keys to your sanity...lol. The difference is that this was ONE day-not every day and that is the change you are making in your life right now.

    Keep up the good work-you're doing great!

    Don't beat yourself up over one slip up! We all do it, and matter of fact sometimes it helps trick your body, so no sweat girlfriend!, Well, maybe a little bit of sweat from your power walk! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The important thing is to get back on track as soon as possible. We all slip a little, it the fall that can kill us if we don't hop back up. Sounds like you are going to do okay. Good luck at your weigh in. I hope you are pleasantly surprised!
