Blah!~A food Confessional

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

That in a nutshell is how I feel. The weather has been crap thanks to Sandy. It's windy, rainy and cold. My joints ache. Especially my shoulder. Before you say that I'm too young let me just put out there that I have several years (8 to be exact) of factory work under my belt! Not easy jobs at all! At my last job I had several shoulder injuries due to being so short. So I hurt. Nothing new. It's good for the makers of Aleve!
Sunday, as I was getting ready to do my now weekly track walk (so that I can track my progress), my hubz says hey why don't you bring back lunch. Ok whatever, I'll just get a salad. Sounds good. Well, thanks to the wind, I only lasted once around the track. And at a slower pace. I stopped by Wendy's because I like their salads better than Mcdonald's. I got a half salad, a broccoli and cheese potato and then the woman asked if I would like a frosty...I should have said least I said smalls instead of larges. I had every intention of doing 30 Day Shred when I got home. I hurt so bad from the cold wind I didn't even bother doing something easier like Walk Away The Pounds. Bad me!
Unfortunately, it didn't stop Sunday. Monday was quite stressful. I took the girls to get their pictures done. They had their holiday pics and Elora had her 1 year pics done. 2.5 hrs later we headed home. They were way better than most kids would have been but they are little kids. Both of them were tired and completely off schedule. Hubz said pizza. I said ok. I overate and felt like puking the rest of the night. Oh and then I drank a big glass of Mt Dew on top of it. I don't drink a whole lot of pop. I haven't had more than an occasional sip of Dew in years. Why suddenly did I drink all that? Yuck!
Today has been better. I did eat the last two slices of pizza for lunch. Other than that it has been a pretty normal food day. Now I'm making yummy easy chowder for dinner. Basically, diced tomatoes, cod and seasoning.
I guess from now on, when I'm tempted by food row less than 5 minutes away, I will come back and reread this entry. I will remember how crappy I feel. I will use this to make better food choices. I don't expect to give up eating out. In fact, Friday is my bday and I will eat (and drink!) out. But I think I need to give up fast food. And when I do go out I have to make better choices! Hopefully there will be no more food confessionals in my future!

    We have all done this, so beat yourself up to much. The last time i did it was with an ultimate cheeseburger from jack in the box, and I DID get sick, 2 solid days of puking from all the grease. A lot of restaurants now have calories listed and healthier options to choose from, so you dont have to stop going out, you just have to take your time and study the menu first.
