Two lbs off and self sabotage!

I woke up this morning and was thrilled to see 2 lbs off on the scale.

I went about my day's jobs, went to the gym and came home. A friend came around for coffee. We chatted and took a walk over to the super market where I bought some jjacket potatoes, stir fry veg mix and a pack of nuts and raisins. "I'm going to split the nuts and raisins, into little post gym snack bags," I said.

We walked back and she went off home and I thought, "Oh it's not quite tea time yet, and I haven't eaten since going to the gym so I'll have a few nuts now." Then I opened the bag and scoffed the lot :o( All 800 Kcal of it.

Then I decided I had blown all my hard work (which let's face it, I hadn't if I stopped there) so I shoved a chicken kiev in the oven and a jacket in the microwave. Not the healthiest of dinners on a good day. :o(

I'm really annoyed with myself as I am fairly certain a lot of this was head hunger / emotional eating. This has been a really emotional year for me and I've been feeling rather sad of late. So now I am going to pull up my big girl panties (love this expression Amy W.) and get back on the diet train. Tomorrow is another day.

Tomorrow is another day! Proud of you for not falling off the wagon entirely. I would have used it as an excuse to for a few days. :)

That being said, congrats on the 2 pounds gone!

One day will not make or break your efforts. You realize what you did; now figure out how to prevent it next time.

Tomorrow is another day.. but we have to be careful not to use that reasoning too often. Today is what is real and needs the focus, tomorrow has yet to be written.

When stuff like that happens, I think long and hard about what I did and how to prevent it next time. Good luck!

Yep, gotta put the past where it belongs. Behind you and move forward. Great job on the loss!

Hi! Just found your blog and wanted to lend some support. Don't be too hard on yourself. It takes awhile to get to a good place mentally with everything. I know I still turn to food when I'm emotional. The biggest thing is when you slip, you can't let it linger. Don't let perfection get in the way of "really good." Good luck!
