Feel Bad

Saturday, May 26, 2012

I sucked big time yesterday! I'm pms-ing and have had the munchies for 2 days now. Well, yesterday I feel like I ate ALL day long. Not all of it was bad. But I didn't want to log it here. Things like, almonds with salt, about 6 Ruffles potato chips. I did have a nice salad for lunch, a protein shake for dinner >:( - I know! Then my mom made bread pudding and saved some for my husband. My husband, mind you!!!! Who had about a cup of the stuff???? MEEEE! Felt like such a pig afterwards. I also ate a small cheese quesadilla with my son because I'd made them for his afterschool snack. Suprisingly I'm not retaining any water this morning and just finished working out, so I feel a little better about eating all those empty calories yesterday. Lord, help me be stronger today! I don't want to quit now that I've got a good running start. This is about where I have fallen off my nutrition plans before. I'm not starving myself, but I miss cheese so much. I do not even want to get on the scale today. And I won't or I'll be more depressed. Why oh why did I let myself get this fat after I'd lost so much weight in 1999??? I was so active and peppy. Always going to the gym after work, no kids to worry stress. Just younger and active, wearing my size 5 clothes. Then something happened to make me feel so worthless and I wound up not caring anymore. I don't want to get off this track and find that lonely, self loathing girl again. Okay, enough venting. More later.

    One bad day of eating does not make failure. Just put it behind you and move on. Living in the past won't help you either. What happened in 1999 is 13 years ago. The "something happened" part is called life. You did new things, some of them stressful. Having kids is stressful. But would you change any of it? My guess is, no. You seem to know what you need to do, you just need to make it fit your lifestyle of 2012, not 1999. emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes it is better to track than to try to hide a bad day.


    Because your body knows, whether you track or not. There's no lying to your body.

    Because sometimes we overestimate just how bad it was. Let's pretend you log it and find you ate 1000 calories over your range. You can divide that over the next 5 days by eating a little less or exercising a little more - just enough for 200 calories each day. It doesn't look nearly as bad when you can see it that way.

    Getting healthy is not an all or nothing endeavor. One less than ideal meal (or several days worth) is not going to matter over a lifetime of healthy eating. I believe Coach Nicole says she aims for being healthy 80% of the time. Life is meant to be lived and sometimes that means enjoying, without guilt, a few almonds with salt, potato chips or even cheese. I have found that when I have no off limit or "bad" foods, I am less likely to crave them. When I do crave them, I can eat a small portion without guilt, be satisfied and move on.

    Don't get discouraged! You ARE worthy of getting healthy and losing weight!

    You CAN, and more importantly, ARE doing it!
