That guilt feeling.
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
I got into a huge fight with my boyfriend, who I live with. Well, more like a really ridiculous argument. Anyways, I left for work and was feeling very down. I've been eating so perfect lately it's unreal.
But I let my emotions get the best of me, and I was offered a very small portion of cake at work and I immediately said okay without thinking.
Now if you take a look at the big picture, this cake ruined nothing. It was so small, it couldn't have been HORRIBLE. But at the same time it wasn't smart either.
I ate it, it cheered me up. But right after I had a horrible feeling or guilt and regretfulness. I felt like I ruined everything I've done and I couldn't even resist something so small.
How can you get rid of those feelings? I know it didn't do anything to ruin my goals, and I'm still continuing on. But it's horrible to feel that down about a decision for hours and hours. I wish I knew how to get myself out of that mind set. Ughhh, I learned my lesson.
Even the smallest sweets will make me feel terrible, because of how dedicated I've been. So, I just need to remember those feelings next time I'm tempted. A few minutes of goodness is not better than hours of guilt.
