Feeling horrible

Monday, August 01, 2011

I'm literally feeling horrible because I ate WAY to much this weekend. My mom had a big party on Saturday. It was the first time she's had one in ages. She invited all of her co-workers and people who had helped her after her house burned down last summer. Now it's rebuilt and beautiful so it was a chance for everyone to see it and to have a great time.

But there was TONS of food! I had really good intentions of not eating so horrible, but I didn't have time to eat before people got here and then there was so much food. And I was hungry. And there was a lot of alcohol so I drank a bit too.

Then yesterday my family came over for dinner to eat up the leftovers. One of my dads is having surgery today to have his gallbladder removed so it was his last real meal for the next 3 weeks. So I ate a ton again! I'm usually not like this. I have really good self control. I enjoy eating fruit and veggies. But I totally fell off the wagon this weekend.

I had to go for a long walk last night because my body felt crappy. This morning I woke up and my stomach was cranky. I know it's because I didn't eat well. I ate way over my calories and am probably not going to lose the 3 pounds I gained last week at the rate I'm going.

But the weekend is over and so is the partying. I have lots of healthy food in the fridge and I plan on cooking for my mom this week. (She makes really unhealthy food. If I cook for both of us I can also help her a bit because she eats healthier as well.) I also kinda signed up for a gym membership this weekend. (I say kinda because it's through the YMCA and I applied for their financial aid. Since I've been doing AmeriCorps and Peace Corps I haven't had any income for the past 3 years. I can't afford the membership on my own so I'm hoping I get enough aid that I can keep going but I won't know for a couple days.) I'm looking forward to my workout later today. It's time to get back on track!

    Emotional eating.....but I know you and I know that you can put a stop to it and work out a rational way to get back on track.

    I am feeling ya.

    Last week was both of my kids birthdays so there were two cakes, ice cream, eating out, you name it.

    Just when I thought I was in the clear- my friend brought them an Ice Cream cake yesterday.

    Since it was their birthdays --that means that my step daughter was here who stresses me completely out. I munched like crazy.

    and- to top all that off- my period is coming this week so I am crunching chips like crazy- I always crave salt when that comes. Otherwise I dont like or even eat chips-


    keep your head up. its only one week. at least this is what I am trying to tell myself. . . .

    Falling off the wagon is not a crime- don't beat yourself up. One bad weekend is not the end; you can do it!

    My tummy was cranky this morning too. PLUS I'm tired. I hate not eating right. Good for you to get right back into work outs! I have one planned for later too, plus I am going to the fruit stand today to load up on some good sugar. Then I have to go to the bread store to get some whole wheat bread. Gotta keep the good food in stock or I plunder the depths of the pantry and eat crap. Hahaha
    Have a beautiful day!!
