Did the chocolate make you feel better?

How about the pretzels? The hordes of Chinese food? The cupcakes?

No, no, no.

So you had an off day.

Wake up tomorrow and make better choices. It’s that easy. Really, it is.

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

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. 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.

    Glad I’m not alone – this weekend was treacherous. Bad on track today. You’re not alone either.

    I am traveling for work and made the same bad choices. WHY DO I DO THAT? UGG.

    I caved this evening and raided the pantry for some chocolate. I swear it feels like I have an out of body experience when I do this. Now I’m focusing on what I can do tomorrow to curb these chocolate cravings in the evenings. I think I’m going to go with planning out my points and working in a chocolate shake for dessert. Load it up with fruit and get some healthy oils in as well. Tomorrow is a new day!
    PS:
    You are always an inspiration! I know I can get through days like this because I’ve seen you do it! WE are not alone;-)

    I also have had a couple bad days. I have had a cold and felt I needed comfort food like Pizza and KFC! Let’s both get back on track tomorrow! <3 ;)

    Oh my goodness, this post had perfect timing. I indulged in a VERY large quantity of dark chocolate Hershey kisses yesterday evening. Not only did I feel guilty and angry at myself, but the chocolate kept me awake until 3:00 am. It was awful! Thanks for the reminder that today is a new day!!

    :) it happens to you as well?

    you are like a role model to me…I have been digging your archives, listening to your old podcasts etc. It has kept me on track and keeps me in touch with what I feel is my alterego :)
    Thankyou!

    It happens to all of us, right? And the key is letting it go and moving on.

    P.S. to Sarah’s comment above, the exact same thing happened to me on Monday night. I was craving chocolate at 10:00 at night, hit my stash of 85 percent dark chocolate. Only had two squares, but it kept up awake until 2:00 a.m.! For me, lessen learned.

    It happens to the best of us…last 2 days for me were not how I wanted/needed them to be! Move on and make today count!

    Good for you that you can put that day behind you and begin anew! When I started to do that, it became a turning point for me. But for those of you who do have that occasional (or not so occasional) lapse, it is important to try and pinpoint the specific feelings or events that triggered the eating. If you have favorite foods around when these events happen, it’s very hard to stop yourself. I discovered my triggers were anger and exhaustion. Since I got rid of the ex, the anger is not so much an issue anymore :-), but exhaustion can still get me sometimes.

    Hugs! You’re the best – and I loved your vidoe review with Ryan. Reminds me of when my guys (23 and 24) were little silly billies! Made me very wistful, in the best possible way.

    Hi Roni,

    I’m really enjoying your blog and your sincerity. I’m also a mom of two who is on a journey of weightloss and better health. To date I’m 53 lbs down in 53 weeks with WW and regular exercise. I love how a motivating factor for you is your children and leading by example. You exemplify for me that it is possible to maintain weight and that it is worth it.

    One meal is just that kudos to you for getting back on track.
    Thank you for all that you do.

    OMG. Are you hiding here?? How in the heck did you know I ate chocolate and over indulged?!! Thanks for the positive reminder. I am strong and I can do it. I just had an off day. It is just as easy as that. Thanks for making me feel so much better!

    I know I don’t have to tell you this but… I just wanted to give a gentle reminder…when we eat those carbbie things they all turn into sugar in our bodies (pretzels, snacks, real sugar ie, cupcakes) once we eat that sugar, our bodies crave more. Once we don’t have it for a period of time the craving cease. I have been sugar free since Jan 2, I have no sugar or bad food cravings…lost 6 lbs so far, I’m not blogging about it this time though, I just found that it put too much pressure on me to perform. This approach seem to be working better for me, Losing weight was just too personal and I wanted to not put it out there so much. But you are doing great, it works for you.
