Excesses

Friday, June 14, 2013

On Wednesday I ate over at my friend's house. I had brought a bok choy salad which I ate and then I ate about 3/8 of a quesadilla and then for dessert had two scoops of coffee ice cream in a waffle bowl...So supposedly that was my cheat (my allowable 10% off of program.) for the week. So what was the medium coffee Coolatta I had at Dunkin Donuts today??? I have no explanation and no excuse. It was out of line and I'm feeling really guilty about it. Guilty because it was so easy. And because I never even considered not having it.

I just got back from Walmart and two thrift stores with my friend. We donated some stuff to the thrift stores and we bought a few things. I got my daughter a hot hair curler system and for me I got three pair of shorts which are badly needed. I also got my daughter a pair of earrings.

At Walmart I got the fiberfill I needed to stuff my four bedroom pillows to go with my new bedspread (my reward for losing my first 25 lbs)...Today I paid for an online course to learn how to knit socks. So I got a skein of yarn and some elastic thread to make my first sample pair of socks. I'm excited (and nervous) about it.

So after spending all that money today, I realized that one of my sources for money is not going to be available this month. I also realized that I"d promised to take my husband out to dinner on Sunday for FAther's Day and I don't think I'm going to be able to afford it....RATS. I shouldn't have spent so much.

And I need to rein myself in in my eating. Perhaps I need to reread some of Dr Fuhrman's book to recenter myself and renew my commitment to nutratarian eating. I will do that today and also spend some time on his website. I need to geta grip on myself....before little excesses cause big slides in the wrong direction.

    Unfortunately excesses in life are widespread and can affect all areas. When we are in a relaxed state and enjoying something, its all too easy to go overboard, both in food and finances. That is why learning moderation in one area of life (like eating) can spill over into other areas. But the one has to be learned first. Maybe you should try reading the Beck books. A number of my Spark friends have had great success with them. Lots of great ideas in them.
    Hope you have a good day today!
