Just start off stupid.

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

I always think of new months as a fresh start. I sometimes look forward to them eagerly.

Today, the first of the month, also coincided with the Sr. Discount Day at Kroger...I can't afford not to take advantage of 10% off all my I was out the door by six am. Home by 8:30. BUT I had already, even after talking with myself about unhealthy choices, gotten a McDonald's chicken biscuit and diet coke. emoticonWHAT? emoticon I keep telling myself "never again" for they just are not as good as they used to be and they are terrible for us to eat...but every once in a while, I stupidly choose to go astray anyway. NOT an auspicious start. emoticon I have just about kicked the diet coke habit...but occasionally indulge in that when I am "out".

Ahhhh..but it gets worse. Unloading all the groceries...I "sampled" the small box of Belgian chocolate cookies that I got with a store coupon (DH never got any of these, but HE has no weight problems, so he can have treats like this now and then). Sample...nah. I ate the whole thing (four servings!) emoticon That on top of the stupid chicken biscuit AND diet coke.

I did get out and mow for an hour after all that. I probably won't be hungry till dinner. I have to wonder whatever possessed me to even want to eat that stuff...on my first day of a new month...when I was going to enjoy a fresh start.

Well, the damage is done. The "fresh start" starts noon instead of in the morning. I may have started out stupid, but I don't have to stay there!

Hope everyone ELSE has a great fresh start this June 1st! emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up! We're not perfect so we all make mistakes, the important thing is that you start fresh again and not let that ruin all the hard work you've already put in. You got this!!

    Asta, yours is mild compared to my lousy eating yesterday. Lets just say, I ate a whole bag of barbeque chips all by myself. We all do things like this every so often. So, don't look back, tomorrow is another day.

    Enjoy tonight emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the support, my friends. I don't think of my self as stupid...just what I did this morning...and with an added mishap this afternoon. Argghh. I hate that those kinds of things seem to build on each other. ***sigh*** Hopefully, I have it out of my system now. As Michelle said...out of the way for this month. LOL (I WISH!).

    Love you all!! Thanks again. emoticon

    Yeah. You had a moment of weakness, but you handled it in a very fine way. The thing we don't want to do is let that sort of thing take over. You could have easily said, "Well, that's it." and just kept going, but you didn't. Good for you!!!!!

    Oh, yeah...and I have hit myself in the head with my hand a few times too. LOL

    Look at it this way Asta, you were just getting the "stupid" (as you say) out of the way for the month!!! Now you can go about your month with no mishaps.


    Have a great month!

    I love you Asta!!! So many times I have had to make fresh starts throughout the day! But the important thing is to keep going!

    You're far from stupid, my friend ... you're human! We all have mishaps. 1 step back, 2 steps forward (not exactly how that goes but it's how I like to look at it). emoticon Anyway, you've made the decision to move ahead and that's the important part. emoticon emoticon
