Not my best week

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

i only have a minute so this will be short.... I have had a bad week. It started with chips and salsa on Friday over a few skinny margaritas with a friend on Friday. Then Mexican food again for my sister's man's birthday the following night. On Monday, I got word that I was hand selected for a special team in my department. I will be doing assessments and not intervention (only 4 people from the 100 in our department will be doing this). Great career opportunity and I feel very flattered, but I felt stressed knowing that I was losing all my cases (I work with kids with autism) and I was leaving the coworkers that I love. Change is nice and scary. I found myself eating two donuts that night (stupid husband shouldn't have bought a dozen. I am always saying just buy the kids one- I don't care if it's cheaper the other way). The donuts were followed by a few GS cookies... some chocolate from Valentine's Day.... and then last night I ate a bunch baggette (and I don't usually do white bread). I am scared to step on the scale... I feel like crap. Only good whole foods are going in my body today. The hard part is ending the sugar binge.... but detox is starting today.

My plan is to eat really healthy for the next week... and then face the scale. Uhgg.... it's so much easier to gain, than it is to lose. I can gain 5 pounds in a day, but it takes like two weeks to lose it.... All I've really messed up is my timeline. I'll still get there.

    I think that's one of the biggest lessons I've had to learn from my experiences with SP: nobody gets it perfect all the time. The important thing is that we make healthy choices a majority of the time and get back up when we fall. I don't even have to tell you that you can do this because you already know it. 2012 is your year!

    Just do your best. Some days that will be better than others.

    Take it One Day At A Time.

    It happens. It'll probably happen again. Put it behind you, take a deep breath, do good TODAY. What I am learning is all I can do is try to do my best TODAY. I can't regret yesterday, or even last year. It happened. I will try again today and I won't even worry about tomorrow. It is so easy to feel bad about our decisions during our weight struggles, especially when we are fighting off those last couple of pounds. I know you want to reach your goal because it will be a personal accomplishment...and you WILL! But in the meantime enjoy where you are and don't let a few chips or donuts ruin your day. You have come so far and have inspired so many proud! :)

    You know, we all mess up, and it is no big deal. I continually mess up too. I am having sugar cravings that are way out of control.
    Just pick yourself up, and dust yourself off, and jump back on the bandwagon. There are so many disappointments in this journey, but there are so many opportunities to make it right, and now as you have said, you are going to make it right! You go girl!
