weekend binge killing me!
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
POOF - gone, just like that. I was starting to get back in the habit of getting up for a little exercise, starting to enjoy eating and cooking in a more health concious way and even becoming more dedicated to tracking what goes into my mouth. and then, WEEKEND!!!
We enjoyed a trip to the fair on Friday night where I skipped soda for my water bottle and managed to control my cotton candy fetish, eating a little bit with the kids and then moving it away from me. Saturday was a good start with swimming for a couple of hours and good choices, until the husband got home. Chinese take-out here we come. Never mind that I had a great meal in the crockpot, ready to go. I was disciplined with the rice and noodles and sesame chicken but the crab cheese wontons - fried bits of amazing goodness - kicked my butt.
Sunday morning started with a call from my father-in-law and donuts for breakfast. LAMARS chocolate glazed I might add. Two donuts later and I didn't feel satisfied or full, but I managed to quit. Did I mention that we had pizza and cookies for dinner?????
this is crap - I just read a post by Jillian Michaels that said weekends will completely undo an entire week of good behavior and I think I likely just proved that point. Not to mention my digestive system is really really irritated with my excess and I am bloated and sluggish overall.
Going to work hard at keeping us on track all weekend. I have said that this is a year of changes and progress for us, but if I allow this nonsense to continue, nothing will truly change and we will end the next summer just as overweight and unhappy with that as we are now.
I need to take charge of this NOW and get us back on track..
