Ugh, What is wrong with ME??? (Pics)

Sunday, September 25, 2011

It's official weekends are BAD when it comes to self control. I'm so frustrated because I'm always telling my DH and DS how important self control is in all aspects of life right? I feel like I can't even follow my own advice!!

So Friday night we went to a wedding, I was thrilled to fit into a size 8 dress, I decided to eat a light supper before going since I knew the food at the reception was not going to be very healthy. Well needless to say I should have skipped my light supper because I ended up eating at the wedding (very small portions) but still talk about lack of self control!!

I also knew I would probably have 1 or 2 alcoholic beverages Well I had 3!!! Yikes!!

Again where is my self control????

So that was Friday. Yesterday (Saturday) We went to the colorado rapids soccer game, again I know stadium food is not always the greatest when trying to lose weight, so I made delicious veggie burgers for us to eat before the game. Well I still ended up eating a hot dog and had a beer

Ughhhh what is wrong with me????
Is it normal to feel this way?
Will I ever have the self control I so often preach about?

    Remember, there are times where you just have to give your body what it craves. You are doing super so you need to reward yourself every so often. I just tend to reward myself way too often! Don't be so hard on yourself.

    I'm sure you already know the answer to your question. There is NOTHING wrong with you. You may be setting yourself up for failure. Weddings are for enjoying and celebrating. Games are for cheering and hot dogs. Let those events be what they are and accept that you will join the fun. Then get back on track when you return to you regular life. There are some things that SHOULD be controlled with tools and strategies. For example, I had difficulties with alcohol and had to get help. That is a ritual I no longer entertain. But..........there are so many times in life that self control is unnecessary. Isolated events and happenings in our lives are to be enjoyed. They don't happen every day and putting high expectations on ourselves at these times is unnecessary and defeating.

    Be nice to yourself. You sound like you have made great progress towards good health and try to model good values for your family. Take it from a recovering perfectionist, it is permissible to be human.

    With much encouragement,
