Smacked back to reality...

I definitely got the smack in the face I needed when I stepped on the scale yesterday. While I know that a few of the pounds I've collected are water weight from the TACO BELL I ate Friday night {gross, I know}, I also know what else I've consumed the past few days. It wasn't pretty. Add to that, I've been a slug. So much so that it's embarrassing. I finally got my act together though, I think. Went grocery shopping, straightened up the house, took the kids for a walk & spent some quality time with my husband.
I hate that I let things snowball out of control for a few days and as a result have a few extra pounds to work off AGAIN!! To be perfectly honest, I'm annoyed with myself and disappointed that I couldn't hold it together.
I did great till about 1:30 this morning. The youngest has been having some ups and downs with sleeping. We'll have a couple good days and then 1 or 2 bad nights. Last night was a bad night and I ended up snacking on stuff in the middle of the night {remember I went grocery shopping lol}.
Anyway, I got 3 hours of sleep last night. I'm waiting for the coffee to brew then I'm going to eat something in preparation for my 9 mile run this morning. Once I get that done I know I'll feel better...

Tiffany-I really want to encourage you to buy the NT book. It does such an excellent job of describing why we have these "bad eating episodes." Jean is so down to earth in how she writes. She actually has a forum on the web that I recentlty joined. I'm nervous and excited about asking her a few questions!! Anyhoo-I'm so convinced that dieting IS NOT THE ANSWER. The roller coaster of "motivated-unmotivated-motivated-unmotived, etc." is so wearisome; one day you're beating yourself up, the next day you're happy about yourself (NOT "YOU" per se, but MOST of us, myself included)..it's just not a way to live, u know?

Anyhoo-I'm in your corner girlfriend!! Rootin' for you ALL THE WAY!

I think it's safe to say we've all been there! Or we are now, and we most likely will be again! You are amazing, just don't forget how far you've come!! It's completely okay to slip every now and then. Hope you start getting some more sleep, that's always a killer to start the day right!

This may sound weird, but I think those increases CAN be a good thing. For me, it gives a reality check that I am not just going to keep losing weight forever. I can very easily end up right back where I started. Great job sticking to it!!
