Why did I do that to myself again...bleck..

Saturday, February 07, 2015

So this week I've worked 40 hours at my full time job, done three tough workouts, worked at my second job Thursday and Friday giving me two 13 hour work days back to back, worked 8.5 hours at my second job today and then went to town for grocery and household shopping. glad to get home and chill out.

I've struggled with staying within my calorie count the last few days. Okay I've more than struggled I've gone over the last two days and today. First two days were more because I was surprised by calorie count in food, then me eating badly.

Today however was all me giving in when I shouldn't have. I was tired and grouchy and hurting when I was at the grocery store and picked up my favorite ice cream...which I know I can't have at the house. After putting away groceries I sat down and had a big bowl of ice cream. And now I feel icky. Why oh why did I do that? I know better. Granted the bowl wasn't the size of the bowls that I used to have but still was a large bowl. And an eye opener as to how sluggish and crappy I feel when I eat that way.

I'm still tired and grouchy and hurting but wanted to get it written down as to how physically bad I feel when I over eat that way...:note to future self-----this sucks!!! Remember this the next time you think a big old bowl of ice cream sounds good!

To end on a positive note, I did three really hard workouts this week. And for 6 days straight I've gotten over 10,000 steps!!! wooohooo!!!

    Awesome job with the 10,000 steps Michelle...The other stuff? You were overly tired grouchy and all the other things that are so difficult to get through without comforting yourself with food. Easier said than done sometimes. Staying on plan is so much easier when life is easy. At least that is how it works for me. So, that was then, this is now. One good choice and then another. It's been that way for me this week as well. We can do this :)

    You have made such a difference in your life in just the short amount of time I have known you. You are at a place where you know what you need to do, but sometimes our emotions get the best of us. I am proud of you for knowing what eating a bowl of ice cream does to your stomach now. Certainly a reminder of what happens when we eat sugar, etc. Today include a cup of ice cream in your menu or take a nice bubble bath to ease the hours of hard work!

    It is hard not to buy trigger foods. It takes a lot of will power. I still buy my trigger foods and bring them into the house, and then I have to fight with myself over not eating them. It sounds like, overall, you are doing well, though. Look at your step counts and your exercise!

    at least you put it in a bowl, and only had one. I tend to eat straight from the carton!
