The slippery slope...
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
It started on Sunday. We hosted a Christmas potluck at our house. I ate a light breakfast and lunch because I was saving myself for dinner. I ate a ton of everything and man, did I pay for it. I felt so gross that I hardly slept that night. I honestly felt as if I had a hangover. You'd think that would be enough to teach me a lesson, but no. As soon as I felt human again on Monday afternoon I started eating more junk! What's wrong with me?
This is a very slippery slope and if I don't stop it now I'll end up right back where I started. I need to remind myself that all of those little bits and bites of food are adding up to big calories - more than I can burn off with an extra little workout once in a while. My thinking is starting to shift back into that dangerous place where I try to justify my unhealthy choices. I can't go back there. I just can't.
I've been a bit worried about something for the past two days and I've got to be honest with myself. I'm slipping back into my old habit of using food as a distraction from stressful situations. There is really no excuse. It's time to clean up my act, put the past 48 hours of junk food behind me and move forward. I am six pounds away from my goal weight for December 31st. Now I just have to convince myself that I CAN DO IT!
