This post is mainly for myself. I plan to read it every morning for a few weeks.
I went on vacation for 1.5 weeks. Ironically, I didn't gain a pound while away, but have been home for 6 days and have eaten off plan 5 of those days. I know I have gained this week.
Why did I blow it?
#1. Haven't done a "real" grocery shopping trip since I've been home, so I haven't been planning my meals at ALL.
#2. Bought stuff to send to DH (in Iraq) for a Halloween care package and so there were large amounts of chocolate in the house.
#3. I think I just gave up a little.
I am recommitting myself as of this very moment.
I feel like garbage tonight. I feel physically ill. I ordered in Chinese as I was in a "why not? I've already eaten like crap all week" kind of mood. Now I sit here sick. Obviously my body is no longer used to being fed garbage. I am also overwhelmingly disappointed in myself and really don't like feeling this way.
I am shopping in the morning w/a menu sheet in hand and will plan out my next 2 weeks of meals and snacks.
In the future, I will buy DH his care package treats and IMMEDIATELY hit the post office and get them the heck away from me!!
And I will try to remember how awful I feel tonight, both physically and mentally. I was doing soooo well. I cannot let this be the end of my efforts.
