I Have Not Missed This Feeling!

Today started out great. I had my cereal with berries, coffee with creamer, wrote it down.

Doing well.

Went to Costco and passed by buying the chocolate dipped shortbread cookies that my girls were begging for. Also passed on all of the samples.

YAY. Felt proud of that!

Went through the Starbuck's drive thru and ordered a skinny latte when I really wanted to get a white chocolate mocha.

Still O.K

Barista was giving samples of the new mini cookies so we bought three. I gave them to the girls, they did not like them. I DID! and I ate all THREE.

O.K. not the end of the world. Forget about it and drive on.

Got home. groceries put away. lunch for the girls finished. Time to make my lunch. I had grilled chicken for my lunches this week and had fresh spinach that I had just bought to make a yummy salad.

Open the fridge.

Spy the leftover mexicano pizza from hubbys dinner last night.

Plated it. Microwaved it. Ate all five pieces :(

Sitting here trying to figure out what happened and feeling full, tired and heavy. Yuk. I haven't felt like this for a long time.

Through years and years of diet after diet, I waited for something inside of me to "click". You know when you just get that unstoppable strength and drive that you know is going to carry you to your goal. Well, click it finally did and ever since, I have been worried about losing that drive...that one day I will wake up and I will quit.

This is NOT that day!! I am not going to let it be.

Bob and I are doing day 4 of the C25K tonight and even though I am going to be dragging from all of the calories that I burdened my body with, I am going to suck it up and go anyway.

I think I have beat myself up enough now. Time to slide off this couch and go outside to plant the beautiful lavendar that I just brought home! :)

Hope your day is treating you well!

I had this same type of day... really good, then terrible. I decided to bake cookies for my employees, and I have eaten so many. I'm feeling rough right now.

Bad days happen. You are doing the right thing by not dwelling on it- Pick yourself up and begin again! :)

You go girl!!! You have a great attitude and just chalk this up in the "shit happens" category, do your workout tonight and start fresh tomorrow!

It's such a normal thing to happen. I'm not exactly sure what used to trigger it in me, but what you are doing is exactly right. Don't let it stop you and just keep moving forward.

Tomorrow is a new day!

That's how it is sometimes. You start off perfectly and end you losing the plot somewhere along the way. The important thing though is what you are doing right now, which is to move on the the next right thing.

I love lavender!!! LOVE IT!!! The minute I read that line of your post I could smell it. Have fun in your garden!!!
