Ugg, just ugg.

I really really let myself go. I can feel my body bloating. Time to find a tactic that will work with my crazy work schedule. I haven't exercised in months. I have been completely lackadaisical about my diet. I had THREE donuts today. In case you missed that, THREE donuts. Two were spectacularly nummy -- devil's food cake donuts. The Boston Creme was disappointing, I am especially sorry about bat that one. It was not worth the calories. The devil's food donuts were worth it, but I should have stopped at one. We were really good for a while. Planning the meals for the week, packing my lunch. It was great. Then kids got sick, made us sick, a major project on work went off the rails and I worked crazy long hours.

SparkPeople is a double edged sword. I as doing well, and tracking my food, but I missed a day logging in which broke my log in streak, and it seemed pointless to log in. I think for me the streaks are counter productive. I am a black and white, one and off, 1a and 0s kinda girl. I have traditionally been a messed up, missed a mark and since it is no longer perfect, time to just throw it all away. And so I did chuck it all in for a few weeks, and it shows. My belly is starting to get bigger than my boobs which is no mean feat. I need to make a break through. I have been bouncing, up and down the same 20 lbs for a while now. I have been stuck between low 240s and low 220s.

I could just scream. I will hatch a plan this weekend. Something attainable yet ambitious. In the immortal words of George Jetson, "Jane get me off this crazy thing!!"

    Every day is a chance to make a fresh start. Don't beat yourself up. We all backslide, it's perfectly normal.

    That 0/1 perspective has to go. Think of it this way, if you slip and fall - do you stay on the ground? Or do you get up, dust yourself off and limp off with as much dignity as possible?

    If you accidentally run a red light, do you rationalize that you might as well rob a bank as long as you're breaking the law anyway? No, you realize your mistake and drive more carefully.

    It won't be easy to break the mental habit, but letting go of it will serve you well.
