I completed the 30 day blog challenge and only messed up a little towards the end, I do hope that you enjoyed, that was a lot of sharing. Yay!
So my life these days, well, just ok. I fell off track with food last Thursday at a B2B Expo (Trade Show) in Oakville, they had free booze and people wandering around with food, so I helped myself, only 2 small beers over the course of a 7 hour period, and lots of hors d’ouvres. Then there was Friday night, that was one of my best friends birthday’s it was dinner out with drinks, I had good meal, I had the salmon and didn’t eat the potatoes, and I drank a lot, then we came back to the house, and continued to drink some more.
Then the rest of the weekend was filled with bad food, bacon and eggs, a bag of cheese popcorn, mint chocolate girl guide cookies, candy bars from Halloween that I hadn’t cheated on before, you name it I had it…Pizza, Mr. Sub, and Tim Horton’s in one weekend…Yup…I suck.
The rest of my week hasn’t been great, I haven’t weighed myself because the last time I did I was up 2 pounds, so only a 9 pound loss, and I am sure I’m up even more now. It’s also that time of the month for me, so that’s not going to help.
When I fall off the wagon, I fall hard. It has always been that way, even though I was doing so well, and without, processed food, any grains and sugar, I didn’t crave anything, but it is so hard to get back to that again.
This weekend won’t help either, it is our annual tree decorating weekend and cookie swap. So you guessed it, there will be cookies, and then us ladies all get together and do more drinking and eating while we catch up. It is a good night, but this will lead to another week of me being off the rails, and by now, you know me, go big or go home, when I fall, I fall HARD.
Part of me says fuck it…we can start again in January, but the flip side of me says, ok, so you are messing up, it is baby steps and you gotta do this one day at a time, and today is a good day to start again. I have continued going to the gym, and I’m hoping that is helping, and I really praying that I am burning more calories than I’m eating, however, that would mean that I would have to burn 5 zillion calories in a one hour period at the gym. Hey, maybe it’s possible..LOL
So, let’s end this on a positive note, so I fucked up. I got to enjoy crap that I haven’t had for 6-8 weeks, and I have made progress by continuing to go to the gym. I do feel good, and I can get back to this. I will get back to this, and I am going to get back to this. Why does it have to be so fucking hard.
