Day 8 Report.....Fail, Fail, Fail!!!!!:-(

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Well, apparently I can only stay on track for a week!!!:-(
I went to visit a friend and went through the Burger King drive-thru.....darn those yummy sweet potato fries and frappe!!!! I then decided to stop to get ice cream "for the boys"...but I got some too, and I just continued to eat poorly all day!!!:-(
It seems like some people can have one indulgence, and then go back to normal eating, but I can't seem to.....bah!!!!!!!!
I was planning on making Wednesday my weekly official weigh-in day, so I am sure to be no where near my goal of 169 tomorrow!!!!:-(
I don't know what to do different, so I will just keep trying!!!!

    Keeping on trying is the most important thing you can do. At least sweet potato fries are more nutrient rich than regular so not a total waste there. Ice cream "for the kids" is one of my downfalls too. Maybe, instead of being totally indulgence free, you could find something that will satisfy, but can be dished out into servings and put aside, then leave the indulgence for the last thing in the evening instead of during the day. Make it your reward for a day of staying on track. Life deserves SOME rewards :). You can do it!!

    Uh oh! I didn't know Burger King had sweet potato fries! Trouble!!
    Somehow you and I both have to really get it into our heads that eating one or two things that are not optimal doesn't mean we should give ourselves license to truly blow it. One day, we're going to figure this out!!

    Hi! Linked over from the BARS team...

    Something that worked really well for me this month was calling it "Perfect August." When I fall off the wagon I tend to fall really far...just like you! So, I did not allow any falls.

    Want something from Burger King? No, it's perfect August...I'll just have a Diet Coke.

    Want some Ice Cream? No, it's perfect August...I'll wait until we get home.

    Want to go out to dinner? No, it's perfect August...Let's make something healthy.

    (I did slip up once or twice but it was easy to get back on track because....it's Perfect August!)

    Just sharing what worked for me! I lost 6 pounds in perfect August.

    That happens to everyone!(me especially). Don't worry, you'll get back on track. That was just a minor set back!

    I am definitely not one of those "one and done" types either. If I indulge or get off track, then my mind goes straight to "well I already screwed up today, might as well eat whatever I want". Today is a new day though. You've been doing awesome and I know you can continue!

    if you can't say no, split the servings instead of eating them in one go :D Or share with others :D One week on track is still great compare to not trying at all!

    Don't give up and be strong!
