200 lbs of slog moving through my body

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

I have done nothing but eat junk and drink Diet Coke all day andI am sitting here on my couch feeling as though there is 200 lbs of slog moving through my blood vessels. I am anchored solidy to the couch, droopy eyed and lethargic. So, I'm owning it...I mean what else can I do?

In stead of pretending like I have been perfect, I am embracing the fact that I have been anything BUT perfect. Like so many of my friends on Spark, I had one of those days where I started off not doing the right thing and then an avalanche of poor choices crashed down around me. I ate poorly at breakfast, I began drinking Diet Coke in stead of water. The ladies were ordering out at lunch today and even though I HAD a healthy lunch, I went along with them. I ate tons of little pieces of Halloween chocolate today throughout the day. Then, I came home and started eating Doritos while I cooked a totally unhealthy dinner--chicken nuggets, pasta, broccoli--neither Johnny or I really wanted to eat it because it was horrible. I have proceded to drink more Diet Coke and eat half a pound of ANIMAL CRACKERS...(who, other than a 2 year old, eats ANIMAL CRACKERS?) I am: LARD BUTT.

I'm going to go drink a pint of water and lick my wounds. Tomorrow will be a better.

    Oh, dearest Rose, sometimes things like this just happen! I've been there, too, and have a whole t-shirt collection as a result. At least you had the Diet Coke instead of the "real thing." But next time, might I recommend Pepperidge Farm Mint (or Orange) Milanos instead of the animal crackers? Yikes! ;) - Sandi emoticon

    I spent a lot of wasted time feeling guilty about my "slips" and feeling disappointed and disgusted with myself until I finally realized and accepted how unproductive that was. Now, I just say "Oops - poor choice - put on your "not-as-big-as-you-were girl" panties and move on.
    Try to always remember that mistakes are a given; we are humans and are not perfect!  We don't have to feel the need to be perfect. Every time you get off track and take a detour on this journey, you have two choices: to keep walking backwards and give up; or to accept your detour as normal and forgivable, and take not one, but two positive steps forward.
    If you never have problems, you’ll never have any successes. You’re in the process of changing your lifestyle, and finding solutions that work for you will take a lot of trial and error.
    We all have times like this! The important thing is that you accept that you did it, forgive yourself, and move forward.
    You have many friends here who care about you and want you to succeed.

    Stay positive and don’t quit!

    I'm sorry! You can't predict tomorrow but today still exists. Make it good. Water, move, water fresh fruit and veggies to push out the lard....

    My advice, make today better, not tomorrow. If you got a speeding ticket on the way home from work you would not continue to run red lights with a what the heck attitude.

    We never have to wait till tomorrow to say this ends now. I am sure the animal crackers were quite delightful, but feeling better about yourself is priceless!!!

    HaHaHa. I love this blog. I know the feeling where you can practically feel all the junk you consumed that day settling somewhere on your thighs, but what I loved is how you didn't make excuses and didn't beat yourself up. "Embracing the fact that I having been anything but perfect". That was great. The yucky way our bodies feel after a day of bad choices is pushiment enough, so why keep beating ourselves up with guilt. Your right, tomorrow will be better. You can do it.

    This sort of made me feel like i do....i think it's from not putting myself first...actually i'm dead last, and it's very, i have to put me up there do it, too.
