Must walk away from the Cadbury eggs.......

Motivational Quote of the Day: "Eat better to feel better." From the Motivational Spark pages.

The last few days have been spent with loving family and too many chocolate bunnies, along with my real challenge-cadbury eggs!

And with that, I will forgive myself--I know that I enjoyed what I ate, however, I didn't feel that great afterwards and I will move forward with each new mouthful.

I will renew my committment to myself by putting myself first in health and wellness so that I can be here for my family and friends.

I haven't ventured on the scale yet, and I won't-I will give myself a week or two to get back on track. I know what it does to me emotionally when I see the numbers creep back up, as they often do after holidays and I don't want that to derail my progress.

Luckily, the weather is going to get a bit warmer as the week progresses, so I can walk outside inside of feeling a bit stuck at the gym. I need a change of pace!

Is it just me, or did this print get smaller? I'd better check my settings....

Hope everyone had a good start to the week!

    Holidays always have a way of derailing healthy habits, but thankfully it's only temporary. I say, as long as you enjoy in moderation, a little candy splurge shouldn't totally knock you down. And, I think getting right back on track is the solution. So, be proud of yourself for the progress you have made and make sure not to spend a lot of time beating yourself up over a little splurge here and there. You have come a long way! emoticon

    Cadbury Eggs?? Oh how I love them! I allowed myself 1 this season, that is all I could do. Good idea to stay off the scale so you don't get discouraged. No point in putting pressures on yourself if you don't have to.

    Oh Susan, I can feel your woe. Being around an extra amt. of goodies is not always just magic! It takes extrememely alot of willpower and I know for myself, it's out the window on alot of days, but I'm happy to say, that I've actually got the willpower on more days than not! Little by little we change. We can feel so good when we have the power to walk away from it all. I feel that I'll have these kind of struggles the rest of my life, but I have more within me now that will be stronger and stronger because I've learned so much more. We all are here on SP, all at different speeds. We each go forward and then back some and then forward some more and we keep doing that forever. Right now I've gained around 12# because of eating too much alot of days. Probably not the majority of days, but alot of them. And then with having RA and not being able to exercise like the average person and with being on weight causing meds., I have to work harder and I get tired of doing that sometimes, but know that I will feel better about it all soon because a new stronger RA med. will kick in and work, so that I can move around better and then Spring will actually act like Spring too! emoticon emoticon You're smart not to be too hard on yourself and realize that this is part of life and go on from here. emoticon emoticon sorry that this is sooo long! Hugs, Karen
