Day 2...not so bad baby

Monday, November 21, 2011

Well- I ate like CRAP today- figures right. Last night I was there-ready to commit, ready for change...blah, blah, blah... and the zingers hit. My mother in law bought them a week ago for my kids. I don't even like them. A moment of weakness and nearly 500 extra calories ingested. It blows my mind how fast I can eat sometimes. Really, its more of an inhalation than eating. As though if no one sees me eat the crap- it doesn't count. Just call me hoover.

In the midst of fixing up our new place, my husband fell off a ladder this weekend. I feel so lucky. He fell from 12+' and landed flat on his back and head on a brick patio. He is the worst pain, but it is all muscular. He could have easily been paralyzed or died. All the xrays were clean- he's damn hard headed. He still needs a little help up steps, but hes up and walking. Slowly, but surely.

I think the built up stress finally caught up with me. And as I finish off a Coors light, 'here's to a better day tomorrow' Tomorrow is going to be good.

    "Just call me hoover" well, perhaps a "Eureka" would be better! at least you have discovered your weakness and have identified the stress factors that lead to sucking in all the junk. There is more to dieting than just cutting calories, there is a whole lot in our emotional well being. I have the "Gone with the wind" attitude as well... "after all, tomorrow IS another day". But tomorrow always evades and the reality of today is here! Now I try moment by moment to be good. I do fail, but I continue to fight a good fight!
