The move has gotten the best of me and my healthy habits. My eating has been out of control all week. I started off ok, making healthy choices, trying my best to prepare food with what I had on hand and then inevitably the husband would want to go out for fast food, or there’d be Combos on the counter or my favorite… the bag of chocolate chips I found when packing up the kitchen. I polished that off on by day 2. That’s right. The WHOLE bag. *sigh*
Right now I’m feeling quite overstuffed after a trip to Bertucci’s. Let’s leave it at the bread bowl because I probably consumed enough calories right there for the entire meal. Did that slow me down? nope. I also most of my entrée, 2 slices of the toddlers pepperoni pizza AND chocolate cake. MAN! I can consume some calories, can’t I?
I’m not beating myself up. Nope. Not going to do it. I moved.. I stressed.. I ate… enough said. Am I a little disappointed in myself for reverting to old habits? Sure. Could I have made some better choices? Yup. But you know what… It’s over. I can either start the yo-yo diet cycle of hell all over again OR I can swing the momentum the other way. I need to remember that one good choice leads to another the same way the "bad" ones have been building up.
All is not lost. I haven’t regained 65 pounds. I didn’t lose all the progress I’ve made running. I’m still fitter then I’ve every been in my life.
OK…. not devoting any more time to this. Let’s move on. We have officially closed on our house!! It’s gone. I can’t believe it. We lived in that house for 8 years. It was our first and I didn’t think I’d get chocked up about it until I signed the papers. But all is good. I love the new house we are building. Which, by the way, is REALLY shaping up…
I can’t believe how much progress they’ve made. It’s so much fun driving by with the toddler and checking it out. Oooops! Did I just say toddler? I keep forgetting my little boy is getting so big. He’s adjusting to the move pretty well. For a day or two he was a bit whiny but I think that was to be expected. Overall he was our little helper and very involved in the whole process. He’s in heaven here at the apartment as there are 2-3 4 year olds in our building, a playground in the back AND a pool down the street!
Right now the husband and I are about to relax as we finally have a living space not cluttered with boxes. We are going to throw in a movie, have a beer and just CHILL! Tomorrow I’m planning on going for a run. I need to get back on track with my marathon training or I’ll never be ready! I’m losing a little of the desire right now but I know once I start running again I’ll get that feeling back.
I hope to be blogging nighty again. I miss it. I am also committing to my food journal. First I used busyness as an excuse, then I used my lack on internet connection. Well I’m fesh out of excuses. Food journal.. run… getting my hair done! Tomorrow is totally going to be a ME day and I can’t wait! :) Talk to you then!
