Saturday was a terrible day for me....from beginning to end! I consumed a ridicules amount of calories from terrible tasting foods. BOO!
Needless to say I did not weigh in for my weekly check today because I knew I would have a gain form the junk I ate yesterday and I did not want the scale to dictate how today was going to go. The scale isn't everything, right? See I am learning.
You read about the issue with my hubby working over the weekend unexpectedly and that was just the icing on the cake for me.
I was in a tail spin by lunch on Saturday and did not recover until about 7pm that night.
That situation ended up working out though because he got off early enough on Sunday for me to get to the grocery stores and get what I needed for the week. The whole family began to Eat Clean TODAY!!!!
I am super excited about this! This is something we have been talking about for sometime and now it is a reality. I will post more on this another day.
What I had not put into words was the OTHER things that were going on that added to my emotions not being too stable.
On Thursday afternoon a friend of mine got terrible news that her father had been in a boating accident and his 'body' has yet to be found. I am not great at handling situations like this....I never know what to say or do for people when they are in need like she is!
Plus on top of those two situations I was at that stage in my cycle that I crave carbs like crazy!!! and once I give in to the desire to eat carbs then the 'OLD ME' starts a talking about things like "oh,well...you have blown it now so you might as well blow it good"....before I know it a box of cookies or bag of chips have been inhaled. Those items will not be in the house anymore now that I am making everyone eat clean.
I actually now see the pattern in my hard days, with them being all during ovulation.
I have learned something this time around and I hope to remember it next time. It is, that yes I am going to crave things or more specifically carbs and it is okay to eat something to curb that craving. Then I must stop at that treat and re-evaluate why I want the next thing and so on. Hopefully this will prevent me from going on a 4, 5, 6 or so on day binge! because I am sure some of you can relate that once you have a few bad days in a row it is SO hard to get back on track.
I am over the craving issue, Thank the Lord for that! and I have had a great day eating wise, communing with the Lord and finally spending time with my hubby this evening.
I feel like myself again!! Praise the Lord for that!
The great and most fabulous news from the weekend is I WON the TREAT FREE SEPTEMBER challenge draw that my fellow blog friend Dawne had!!! I am more than excited to receive this gift! I don't remember the last time I won anything!
