I am sitting here with that gross overstuffed feeling. Why? Why? Why am I doing this to myself? I’ve been totally out of control on the eating front since Thursday. Whoever told me to throw away the Girl Scout cookies was TOTALLY right.
I made a commitment to stay true to the blog so here goes…
Last night I proceeded to eat an entire sleeve of thin mints. That’s right, one half of the box! I wasn’t hungry and I wouldn’t called it mindless eating. It was conscious eating. I was totally aware of what I was doing. I just didn’t care. I wanted them.
As if that wasn’t enough tonight I ate an entire bag of baked chips. And I’m not talking the small 2 serving type bags.
These are only 2 examples of my overeating splurges. There were more.
What is wrong with me?
I seem to be in the bad pattern of starting each day off awesome and then totally falling apart by bedtime.
However, I am NOT letting this ruin my Sensation Sunday. I still had an awesome day, got tons of things done, spent time with the family and got to the gym.
The day started with a fresh double batch of Whole Wheat Banana Nut Muffins baked with the toddler. I love the fact that he is showing interest in helping me cook again. I give him a bowl with some flour and spices allowing him to mix along side me. SO MUCH FUN!
After breakfast, we, of course, danced around the house and cleaned up. Then it was off to the gym for my date with the wall. Even though I reached my goal, I know I need practice. And I was right, I couldn’t do it a second time. I climbed my heart out but my muscles just gave. I’m not worried, I’ll get it again. It’s tough! But a workout I love to do. Speaking of workouts, even though my eating is out of control I’ve been hitting the gym hard. I almost feel as though I’m trying to counteract all the bad eating with exercise.
Getting back to my Sunday, after working out the toddler and I hit the grocery store for weekly supplies. I bought the biggest Butternut squash EVER! There is enough squash for about 3-4 trays of Butternut Squash Fries plus I experimented today and made a Butternut Apple Pear soup. I’ll post it later in the week when I have a bit more time.
Let’s see, other things on this Sensational Sunday worth mentioning…. The family went for a short walk after dinner. We hit a local Barnes and Nobles for new books and now It’s about time to finish the laundry. Ahhhh good old Sundays.
Back to the out of control eating thing, I know all I need is a good day on plan. I also know I haven’t been drinking enough water. So tomorrow’s goals…
- 20 points
- More water, a lot more water
- Meals planned (off to do that now)
- More fruits and Veggies
I rambled, vented, confessed and chatted enough. I’m off to plan. Hope you had a great weekend! I’ll be back tomorrow to post my sucessful day on plan!
