Today is my birthday, and it is time for a new attitude.

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I have made some really bad food choices these past few days, not going to lie cause really, who am I lying to but myself then? I am going to work hard today to get things back in perspective and do a better job, I threw out the cake I had sitting on my kitchen counter this morning, it just kept staring at me screaming, you know you want me, go on, no one will know. Well that is bs, I know. So yes, I have ate cake, I have fried stuff, had too many breads and I feel it, I am lethargic, I am barely even in a give a damn kinda mood but I am still here. emoticon emoticon

I have been walking, and when I say walking I don't mean a stroll around the block, it is a full on sweaty, breathy walk. And I have managed to do this every single day except this past Sunday for the last 3 weeks. My only reason to not do it Sunday was I had a lot of barn chores to get done instead, so it is still all good. I am very proud of myself for this and am not going to discount it. emoticon

Lesson here today is: even when spirling out of control in food, keep something heading in the right direction, it might just be enough to pull you out when you need it. In the past I would have ate horribly, then turned around with the thought of "no point in working out after I just did this" instead I turned that binge into "better get my butt out there even though I feel a bit bloated due to the massive food I ate, I will feel better afterwards." And you know what? I was right, because I was able to pull my self up and off the couch every day I can still look myself in the mirror and say, ok, enough of that now back on track, you have not derailed your whole life, you have just had a bump. emoticon

    You are absolutely correct my friend!!! You are a rockstar, even the best most seemingly perfect rockstars have bad times, bumpy roads etc. I am sooo proud of you, and all your progress, and knowing where it's at, and what you are aware of, and admit to yourself and everyone else...keeping it "real"!!! Keep up the great work, part of winning the battle is knowing one mistake or over induldgence doesn't mean that you should throw it in all together, and like you said, more importantly you NEED that exercise to compensate for what you just pigged out on, right? My "all or nothing" attitude had to go, and I can tell you are using rationalle too..Way to go!!! And emoticon

    Yay, you! So you made some mistakes, so what? We ALL do!
    The important thing is to learn from them (i.e., your body didn't really want all those things because you felt lethargic and not great after eating them). I think it's really good to blog after a mistake because is makes you analyze it. And - it helps you realize your successes as well (getting up and doing your walks).
    You're doing great...I saw this in an article and plan to put it on my collage (if I ever get one made)
    Progress not Perfection
    - and you're making progress!
    Have a great Birthday!
