Those of you who told me you are proud of me because of my last couple of decisions....are NOT gonna like to hear this confession. I was still in a "dangerous place" today despite all the wonderful encouraging words I got in my blog comments. I still felt the need to do some damage. So I went to the grocery store with a friend. I just needed some fruit and some lettuce...which I got. But THEN I got the natural fruit ice cream bars....coconut. And ate the whole damn package. Yeppers. I really did. I'm not proud of it. But I DO feel like 'OK, that is behind me, now it's time to get with the program once again." At first I feared that I would be on a slippery slope....but really once the last bite of the last bar had been swallowed....I really wanted nothing more than to be feeling good about myself and my choices once again.
It wasn't worth the thrill of the cold sweetness. IT WILL NEVER BE WORTH IT. Remember that.
And remember...NEVER have a package of anything in the house again because you WILL eat the whole thing.
OK. Lesson learned. Good thing I worked out today. I burned over 300 calories. so that accounted for part of the damage I did.
fortunately too, it was a low calorie day for me with the exception of the coconut bars. I know I know. Self Justification will get you nowhere. Self DISCIPLINE will get you EVERYwhere.
