Mother Knows Best? or tries too...

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Yesterday I had a great day! I got a good workout in I ate often but not over in calories for the whole day. I got in a lot of water in. And everything in the plus until 8pm my mom comes over and brings sweets... cookies.. apple thingies... yea and here I am debating if I really want to just go for it. I asked my husband if he wanted one and he looked at me and said no. I told him we could split one he said no. He goes you can go have one. I resisted the urge. I walked away from it. I went to bed without having one spurge for the day! YAY ME!
But this morning my baby woke me up early wanted to get up early didn't go back to sleep and I gave in.... I had an apple thing and 3 sugar cookies... close to 900 calories. I ended up bringing the stuff back to my mom's. If I have it here I'll eat it. Hoping I can hang in there for the rest of the day without splurging again.
I know she was trying to help and bring food but I guess she just doesn't realize that's not helping and hindering my process. Oh well she is just trying to help.

    Well done, and yes, she is trying to be kind, but you know it isnt working for you. why not make a little gift pack up and donate it to a street child, shelter, hospital etc. That way her gifts will REALLY be kind, and what she doesn't know won't hurt her...if you are not able to explain what it does to your reserves and what you really could have as a gift in its place. Maybe a nice bubble bath or something non edible.

    Great job resisting the night before! Unfortunately, studies have shown that tired people are more likely to make poor nutritional decisions so just take this as a learning experience. What I like about the SparkPeople program is that it reiterates the need to move on from a mistake and not beat yourself up about it.

    It is so hard when a loved one doesn't support your efforts, but you did a great job by returning the sweets to your Mother's house. Hopefully, she will understand that she shouldn't be bringing these types of foods over to your house and will not hinder your progress further.
