Day 4 - help - slipping, slipping.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Did my exercise, went to meditation class, went to help out at church, great cake there, had a piece.
Came home, walked, at the piece of cake that I brought for my DH - crud!!!

Start over - go walk some more - meditate and remember that meditation does NOT make me hungry!!

    Success isn't never falling but always willing to get back up.

    Remember how you felt two days ago, when you did everything right, and then remember how you feel today. I bet tomorrow will be great!!! A good question to ask yourself when you're confronted with food is "Will this help me get to goal or not?" If the answer is yes, eat it, if no, don't. You still did all that exercising and meditation, so you're doing great - just need a little tweak here and there. You can do it!!!

    OK you slipped up. I have been there, most of us have. What you learn from this day of eating cake and more cake is not to repeat your slip ups. If you must eat some cake, Know that after three bites your craving is satisfied. Take a small piece. Don't bring any in the house from church, store or any place. Think if you don't need cake, hubby probably doesn't need any either. Too much sugar, fat. Unhealthy.
    When you are faced with a tantalizing food, think of how eating it will enhance your life. Will it make you feel fantastic? Will it make you more attractive? Will it provide you will riches? If you can answer yes, then have it. But if you are honest with yourself, the answer is usually NO.
    Getting used to going without some foods in the beginning of changing how we live our life, takes some getting used too. After a avoiding some foods, I adapted the 2,3 bite rule. Thats all I ate and that way I could have a nice taste but not over do.. Comes in handy at Potlucks . and picnics.
    I'm sure you wish you could have a do over of today. well the occasion will arise again, how you handle that time will give you the chance.
    Take care,
    Be strong, stay positive.

    It's okay...I've done the same thing. Disappointed when I do it, but next time maybe don't bring any home for him? The only way I can control what I eat/don't eat is by not having it in the house, so poor hubby does without here...although I have to say, it doesn't hurt him either, as he has some weight to shed, as well. Not trying to make light of it here, just commenting that this is definitely a challenging thing to manage. Just keep practicing...there is no such thing as perfection, but as long as there is progress, we will make it!! Best to you!! Hugs, Jeannie

    If you want to DO something about what you already did, reflect on what you MIGHT do to make it LESS likely that the same outcome will happen. Maybe what you would plan would be NOT to bring a piece of cake HOME even for hubby, maybe your plan would be to bring it home but put it in some special spot that you and your DH agree is HIS spot for treats and that YOU promise to leave alone (my son and I do this - each of us have a spot that is OFF LIMITS to the other - we do NOT touch the other's stuff there). Maybe your plan would be to eat a smaller piece and take half home for YOU to have later when DH eats his. That is more productive and while your plan might NOT work, it just might and either way you will have learned something new.

    It isn't the end of the world unless you make it so. We all slip at times, just don't start an avalanche! lol

    Ok. So you ate it. Sounds like you are learning from this which is the only way to look at it. (as far as I'm concerned:-) You'll be better prepared for next time. Hey and look at all the great things you accomplished today--exercise, meditating...bloggin on SP. I know you can do it. After all you're with the pack. I'm one of your fellow dawgs. We're with you!
