Well, the started off reasonably well. I slept horribly, but managed to have a light but decent breakfast. I also did day 1 of the fit and firm DVD I received the other day. Then, as usual I went off to do a few errands and grocery shop for the week.

I was so exhausted by the time I got to the grocery store I put a few things in the cart that I shouldn't have. I then bought them, took them home and almost devoured them. I wasn't even particularly hungry. That is what makes me feel the worst.

I let myself down. Today was my weigh-in day, and I have officially lost 4.8 pounds! Why, with that great achievement in my mind, did I sabotage myself??!! Maybe it's because it's such a habit to fall back on those few items that 'comfort' me. I can't let my exhaustion be the excuse, can I?

I really need to examine this further. I just need to do it with a clear, and well-rested, head. I'm just above lower limit of my calorie range, so I'll try for just some veggies for dinner. Tomorrow is going to come early (0430), and it will be a hectic work week.

Two steps forward, one step back right? I think that was today's SC lesson. Things can only go up from here! Keep your fingers crossed that I get a good nights' sleep!

    I go super-early in the morning, before it is noisy and crazy. Also, I leave the kiddos behind, so they don't lobby for treats we don't need.

    My hubby is a very healthy eater, so I am lucky to have his support. Too bad I often sabotage myself by chowing down while at work. Ah, we all have our achilles' heels. You are doing a fantastic job-- keep going!

    I try to stay away from the grocery store as much as possible because all the bad stuff calls to me so loudly! I've got a grocery store in the area (Safeway) that delivers so every month or so I buy everything I can in bulk. I buy a lot of frozen veggies and use less fresh. I buy big roasts and cut them down to meal size portions and freeze, etc.

    I buy all my fresh stuff from Whole Foods or Sprouts - they don't have rows of candy and cupcakes or any of the other trigger stuff.

    You lost 5 pounds! That's a great accomplishment! We need to give our successes more attention than our back sliding. You are doing so much better than a lot of us!
