Hello Losing It! Ladies!
I hope everyone had a great week. It is raining here in the ATL this morning so I didn’t go on my walk. Well, truth be told, I hadn’t planned to go on my walk since I stayed up too late reading. Hopefully, I can go on one this evening after the Princess goes to bed. I sleep so much better when I walk!
How was your week?
I know that Mel over at Simply Mel answered the call to the elliptical this week. Way to go Mel!!
And, following Dedra from JustAChick on Twitter let me know that she has been a running fool this week. Whoop! Whoop!
I love following these ladies and checking in on the rest of the Losing It! gang on Fridays. Be sure to follow us on twitter using the #losingit10 hashtag. It’s great to get encouragement all week long!
My week went okay. I lost another half a pound. So, I’m at 26 pounds total. That’s pretty insane to me. A major accomplishment. Of course, I’m only halfway there. Gotta keep going.
We had the reunion last weekend, and I discovered something about myself. I can’t have just one sweet. It’s not really possible. Well, I can have like a few M&M’s and be okay, However, I CANNOT eat a cookie and expect to eat only one. I find myself back at the cookies again and again and again. Last Sunday was a REALLY bad day. Like REALLY bad. We had all these sweets out on the counter for the reunion, and I found cookies in my mouth over and over again. And, it’s like I found them there. I don’t remember picking them up – or making a decision to pick them up. They were just there – in my hand and in my mouth. Once I had one, I had to have more. Like an addict. It was BAD.
I was pretty upset with myself the next day. Especially since I felt AWFUL! I had consumed WAY too much sugar. I went on my walk Monday morning and walked hard just trying to get the toxins out. I kept drinking water and drinking water and drinking water. It’s like I needed to cleanse myself. My body was NOT happy with me – at all. My body forgave me by Tuesday, and I forgave myself. When you mess up bad like that, you’ve got to start the next day with a clean slate. You can’t take back the cookies, so you’ve got to forgive yourself and move on. It’s one day at a time!
Did you have a bad day this week? Did you forgive yourself?
