I hit a pot hole!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

So the road of life is not smooth! Its rather rough at times!! To be quite honest it wasn't a big pot hole cause I had planned to eat off plan for the family reunion! Maybe I was disappointed in myself for not having more control!! My sister brought fantasy fudge with extra pecans n I kept popping them in my mouth like they were celery or low cal veggies!! My sister n law brought homeade bread n also made jalepeno cheese bread. Fresh out the oven cause she baked them in my oven!! I made gumbo n chicken stir fry for my son cause he also is eating healthy! Which I did not eat !! I had gumbo n rice. 1 bowl for lunch and another for supper! He also loves fudge and stayed away from it!!! Ok did I eat as much gumbo as I would have back then? No only 1 bowl and not a huge one!! My weakness is chocolate no surprise to me!! Bread I can avoid 90% of the time! If hot and I eat 1 pc its harder. So I got right back in motion the next day but did slide on sugar free cookies. 3 days later I am completely back on plan and cookie free!! But it was a Blah week!! I started feeling better about myself last night!! I did gain a little over a pound for weigh in!! A very wise women said maybe I am focusing too much on reaching a 100 lbs which I needed 2.2 lbs before gain and was really expecting a gain after fudge gorging!! So now I will TRY not to worry about it and focus on eating healthy and exercising and let the scale alone till weigh in!! I am in the right mindset now and know I will do this I know there may be another pot hole or bump in the road but I have to try and go around it or be better prepared!! I can do this I just need to keep pushing through!! emoticon and stay focused!!

    I *Love* how you call it a pot hole. You didn't stop moving, you just hit a pot hole, and now you're moving on. I'm going to steal that phrase. :)

    Just keep looking for that 2.2lb and you won't notice that big number lurking in the background.

    We have a saying here, "Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves" that's true about weight as well as money. I look for 1lb each time.

    Happy Easter! emoticon (Nearly sent an Easter Egg then thought better of it, lol)

    I would agree with that wise woman. Just do what works for you and it will come.
