Off Course

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

I started off great, I had a plan and I stuck with it, up until a week and a half ago, It first started when we decided to go to a mexican restaurant, I did good, I ordered the healthy version and had them give me a box to put half of it up right away. Then we went to the mall and the chocolate chip cookies were looking very good I thought one cookie won't hurt. I continued to eat two more cookies, then from there I was off track. I started binge eating I wanted all the foods that I knew that I couldn't have right now although, I knew that if I ate in moderation I would be okay but I wasn't. I was in denial!! I ignored the part of my brain that was telling me to stop. After doing this to myself I started feeling bad my chest started hurting, I started feeling sluggish, I woke up with my hands swollen from all that sodium. I know that everyday is a new day, a new choice I make to live healthy but, I am still far from having the discipline that I need to help me stay on track. So this is what I am going to be working on (discipline) this week and there after, I realize that life happens and there will be many more mall visits with the cookies and I have to know and love myself enough to only eat the one cookie or to choose to walk away... Today I am back on track, I'm not going to beat myself up over it, instead I am going to learn and build from it and know that I am only human!

    It's a good attitude to messed up...go on from here...I had it put to me this way one time...if you get a flat tire on your car do you go out and flatten the rest of the tires? No, and just because you messed up one day on your diet doesn't mean all the progress you have made so far is gone, you just get back on your program and keep going! :) emoticon
