5120 calories later...

Sunday, March 28, 2010

k soooo I hit 200 lbs and decided that I deserved to celebrate my achievement..HA!! Thought.. ya know I can share that brownie sundae with friends and have a few drinks...well there lies the mistake my little dumb one...so a few drinks was a few too many and I wake up 5120 calories (more than a WHOLE pound) later feeling sick from too many drinks and too much junk food with a bruised ankle and a humbled ego. Had the most embarrassing time logging in everything I consumed..cringing with each entry...thinking.. man and I thought that piece of cake was hard to log... So today I am going to set actual rewards for my goal like so many on Spark do so that I know exactly how I will celebrate! To top that off I'm thinking I need to spend some more time on my inner me because afterwards I caught myself feeling pretty low..and I mean lower than "oops messed up"...SUPER low!! Then of course I wanted to eat another brownie but got on my bike instead so "SWEET!" won that battle and have EVERY intention of winning the war!! So goals for the week...at least not have gained any when I weigh in (please please please) and start journaling again..IMMEDIATELY..focusing on my "triggers".
So on your mark.... get set....GO!!!!

    The important thing is that you DID log it all, you recognize how bad you felt afterward, and you are looking for ways to change your future actions! Moderation is key, not deprivation. Keep your chin up, your ody moving, and your mind working. :-) Stop by Irving Sparkers and say hi, let us know how you are!

    Ugh, I hate cringing while I write in my entries - it's hard to be honest sometimes...

    You are so right though for just saying, wow that was a bad day, and tomorrow I will do better! Good luck - I know you can do it!! (and definitely set yourself some goals - reward yourself!)

    I know it doesn't feel like it now, but you actually should consider this a pretty important milestone. We are in this for the long haul - right? And, we cannot eat perfectly for the rest of our lives - right? So, here you are - you are living, and you have hit a bump. Now, the question is - what are you going to do about it? Are you going to get down and depressed and eat your way through next week? No! You are putting those calories behind you, getting on your bike, and heading toward a healthier you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with eating way over your calorie limit once in a while. Skinny people do that all the time. You have to embrace that you are here, on your way to a healthier you - and that includes dealing responsibly with the fact that you ate over your calorie limit.
    I hope the scale is kind to you...but most important...be kind to yourself. Celebrate the tremendous accomplishments you have made already. Consider this a rite of passage towards a healthier you (and know that it won't be the last one - but that it shouldn't happen too often).

    My friends and I often like to "celebrate" in healthy ways. We love going for walks and hikes (pretty much year-round except when the snow is knee-deep), in the summer we swim in the lake, we visit the spa or salon, I like to drag my friends along to vegan and vegetarian restaurants, we have healthy potluck dinner parties, or we go out dancing and stick to drinking soda water with slices of lime. When you hit 175 you should celebrate the healthy way!

    Good for you! Choosing the Bike over the Brownie. Can't tell you how many times I've had to make those types of choices in the last year.

    Just pick yourself up, dust off, and keep on keepin' on!!!
