Watch out for Weekends
Wednesday, May 13, 2009
Everything was so on track on Friday morning. By Sunday night, I'd totally relapsed into the old unhealthy me. On Monday morning I walked but even that wasn't enough to get me to start eating healthy foods. So now it's Wednesday and I finally weighed myself and even though the scale shows a victory, I feel defeated because I didn't stay on track for 5 days. I know those 5 days won't ruin everything and that it doesn't matter that I could have lost a bit more. What bothers me is the pattern I'm trying to break which is to do alright for awhile and then to let one hour or one day or one weekend of unhealthy eating make me just give up and run.
The other thing I did wrong was to not get on sparkpeople. If I get on here, I have to face my rebellion so I stay far away. I'm not even sure what got me to get on this morning, but now that I'm on and writing, I can see that there was progress and all is not lost. Isn't that the point of the hope that this community of people brings to us. All is not lost! I can eat healthy today! I can exercise today! Next week the scale will also go down, if I will just take it one day at a time, making good choices as I go along.
