One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Back to Reality…

16 Comments 2302 views

My diet over the last 4 days progressively got worse and worse and my body didn’t like it at all.

Yesterday was the ridiculous. Let’s just say I had Lindor Truffles for breakfast followed by Peanut Butter Smidgens and way too many cookies after dinner. My Mother-in-Law had these amazing Pecan Cookie balls. The ones with the powdered sugar on the outside. I swear I ate at least 2 dozen mysself. It was bad. Real bad. But MAN they were GOOD.

Anyway, my body didn’t really like this influx of sugar. I was so bloated and tired and bleh. Frankly, I felt like poo. That’s about the best word I can use.

So today I was all about the tracker…

I started my day with my favorite breakfast, a veggie omelet.

I made a classic Mommy and Me Omelet and shared an egg with Little Bean.

This is a tradition I started with Little Guy a long time ago. Click here for the story.

After breakfast the boys played with our new world map while I cleaned up a bit.

How cute are they?!? The last few days have been amazing family time for us. The Husband took a few days off and the 4 of us are having a blast. He has to work tomorrow but then we get another 3 day weekend and I can’t wait.

Anyway, lunch was my latest salad obsession.

It’s salad greens and spinach with gouda, dried cranberries and walnuts. Click here to see how I make this "Harvest Salad" for Thanksgiving. Today I figured out a 6 point single serve version…

I piled on greens and topped with 1oz of cubed gouda, 20g of dried cranberries, 2 whole walnuts chopped and 1 tbsp lite raspberry vinaigrette.

I seriously can eat this every day. It’s a fun winter salad and I don’t really like salads when it gets cold.

The rest of the day was spent cleaning and organizing. I made some pasta for dinner and then hit the gym. It was nice. I actually missed not working out the last few days. I look forward to it now as "my time" that when I don’t go, I feel off.

So that’s it. I’m back to tracking and I’m feeling good after tracking today. I want to hit the New Year running (figuratively and literally.) :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I had leftover apple pie for breakfast around noon yesterday, and then followed it up with some homemade swiss bread my grandmother made. The damage was done, and even a turkey sandwich couldn’t get me out of the funk that I was in. It wasn’t until I ate a couple of bites of red meat and a BUNCH of veggies/fruit that night that I finally felt better. It really does make me feel super depressed when I eat crap. Did I mention that I had a splitting headache most of today too?

    Being that my holidays finished early I had already gone thru the “eating like crazy” and this week has been good. Tracking is what it’s all about for me and motivational sayings stuck all over the inside of the refrigerator and pantry. You are all so right,When I eat crap I feel like what I eat–“crap”. Have begun Leslie Sansone family walk tape again and it really helps. I always seem to have trouble staying on track towards the end of the week but starting tomorrow I will be renewing my determination to stick with the thing I promised myself. Stay on track by tracking anything and everything that goes into my mouth. Everyones comments help so much.

    My body hates me right now too. Ugh. I just feel yucky. I need to buckle down and get serious, but I seem to be too lazy to take the steps. Your posts are motivating, though; please keep it up. :)

    Oh thank God I’m not the only one. I hit a milestone then obliterated it and am now going on a culinary side trip so the scale should be throwing poo at me like a monkey when I get back. But we’re going to be walking a lot, water only for 90% of the meals and we WILL make it to the gym. It does feel really good when you start eating right again, it’s like your body CRAVES it! Here’s to awesome food that makes us feel GOOD and not like manatees! *raises water bottle*

    I love reality sometimes
    and routine
    AND YOU!!

    Those Lindor Truffles get me every time. I cannot just eat one or two.


    December 29, 2011

    I could have written the first part of this post myself, ditto on the Russian tea cakes and Lindor truffles…for 3 days now!!! I know me well enough to know I have to step down rather than cold turkey from the sugar..looking good so far I brought a salad and soup for lunch and veggies are sounding great, progress!

    I’m right there with all of you. I’ve gained all 6 lbs back and I’m so upset. I felt so bad yesterday.I couldn’t wait to get back to work just to have some similiance of routine and limit on junk food. Me and the scale aren’t speaking and I need to get it back on track. Here’s to a better new year!

    I ate horribly too. It never ceases to amaze me that when I eat crap I feel like crap. And yet, I eat crap again. I have been eating well now for two days and what a difference in how I feel!


    December 29, 2011

    Oh Russian Tea Cakes…why do you call my name??? Seriously. Can’t say no. :) It’s all about right now. Make the best choices you can from now on. What’s that Fleetwood Mac song? Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow!!!
    Because yesterday really IS gone.


    December 29, 2011

    P.S. That song comes on my iPod almost every time I work out. It really is uncanny…

    You are my inspiration for not letting one or two “off” days of eating crap become a week or two (or more!) of bad eating. You are one of the best examples of just “moving on” after a horrible day of eating and it is because of you that I can now like crap for a day and then just move on and resume my healthy eating the next day. Because of this, I haven’t gained any weight at all this holiday season and I’m soooo happy about that! So . . . THANK YOU!!!

    Oh – thats it – thanks for the wakeup call. I had lunch out yesterday and not sure why I was feeling so gross after…even went home from work feeling nauseus – go figure, it was something that I ate. I started tracking yesterday and back with the water right by my side. It is amazing how well you can feel when you stay away from the goodies!!! Wishing you and your family a safe and Happy New 2012!!!

    Hi Roni. Yay for getting back on track. I’ve eaten “poo” too over the last few days, and my body is actually CRAVING healthy food. Who craves kale????? Well, I am today! Have a great Thursday.

    I love how you share with us even when you have had bad days. It really shows us that everyone has a bad day and you just gotta get RIGHT back on track!
