OK, I totally blew it

Friday, November 28, 2008

OMG, how much junk can you eat.
We where in VA Yesterday for Thanksgiving, and even though I had it all planned out in my head, my eyes took over, they wanted more and more and wouldn't listen to my brain.
The meal I did great with, very little of the stuff I only really wanted, and I even stayed away from the Crock pot Mac&cheese.
But the sweets, oh boy, a totally different story, between Grandma's Peanut butter balls, I think I had at least 4, and Beverly made something awesome, it had Cornflakes, Corn syrup and a bunch of other stuff in it, and a thick layer of Chocolate over it. Well, let me tell you, I was sick after it was all done and over with. I couldn't tell you how many calories I had. And then to make matters worst, I didn't count today either. I know I had a Quaker square for bfst, and some cheese ball with crackers for lunch, but then the preacher cookies took over and we had a pizza for supper, which I ate more than 1/4 off. All this including my bad mood, because I wanted to decorate the house.
It started that I needed to get some more garland, well $70 later, which I really, really shouldn't have spend my mood was in the dumpster, the kids are acting up because the house is turned upside down, they are out of their routine, and so am I, not a good thing. Then most of my lights for the tree didn't work, so off to the store again emoticon. The kids helped me decorate the tree, which that is hard on my nerves, because they don't do it the way I like it. Oh well, get over it, they had a good time.
In the mids of all of that I had to call a bunch of my parents to see if their kids would go shopping with us this Sunday or not, since nobody had signed up.
So really, stress took over today. My jeans are tight again, and I feel like I blew it, probably gained everything back, and I feel like a failure. But that is just the Devil speaking. And I don't want to listen to him!!!
So first thing come first, I have to praise the Lord for my and my families health! How awesome God is amazes me, and even more it amazes me that He does all of this for me. Thank you Lord.
I can start again tomorrow and this time I will put down everything that touches my lips. And I need to drink a bunch of water, totally neglected that. To much soda.
Now I feel better and am ready for a new day tomorrow. I just hope Chris will be home soon and safe from his hunting trip with Jeremy his brother.

Well, hope you all have a great night.

God bless

    It's time to step back and take a deep breath. The past couple of days haven't been ordinary days ... they've been holidays that are traditionally celebrated with food, and lots of it. Not only is there food everywhere, this seems to be the most stressful five weeks of the year with all the social commitments, shopping, trying to find the perfect gift, trying to fit that gift into your budget, rearranging your home to convert to a winter wonderland, large gatherings with family, not all of whom you always enjoy spending time with ... etc, etc, etc. You're just getting started and are bound to slip up every once in a while. Even those of us who have been at this for a while, and think we are leading healthy lives have a diffucult time during the holidays. Forgive yourself and move on. Tomorrow is another day, a fresh start, and another chance to excel.

It was Thanksgiving, and tomorrow is another day.... Shoot I am going crazy cause I know all the left overs are in my fridge calling my name.. uggghhh.... So forgive the past, live for today and press on toward tomorrow...
