Weekend Quote: You are NOT a Fool

Grrrr. I had a whole intro written for this post and then I lost it — just like *that* — my stupid browser froze and now I’m mad at WordPress for not autosaving fast enough when really it’s my own darn fault.

I don’t know if it’s only me, but I can’t rewrite something I’ve already written — it never feels the same.

Anyway, I won’t bore you with my whiny baby grumblings.

Yesterday was Halloween and I had a BLAST! I’m not sure when it happened but the 8-year-old is now a trick-or-treating master. He was jetting house to house so fast with his friends that I could barely keep up! Here’s the blip on my Fitbit stats…

Side note: I had and reviewed the Fitbit One — click here to check it out — but have since lost it. This week I picked up a Flex and will be reviewing that one as well. 

I walked more, wandering around my neighborhood than I did all day sitting at my desk. It just goes to show you don’t have to go crazy to increase your activity. Just a little #WYCWYC can go a long way.

Meanwhile in the food department I have to admit my little experiment worked. I really didn’t want any candy! It just didn’t sound appetizing anymore. However, my jack-o-lantern pizza did…

… and I probably ate way more than I should have but whatever. It was yummy and fun! Plus, there’s no use in crying over consumed pizza! Which brings me to this quote I saw on Tumblr.

Only a fool trips on what’s behind him. — Unknown

I don’t know who said it or if it’s just an old saying but I think it’s pretty powerful.

Think about it: If you enjoyed more than your fair share of Halloween candy (or whatever) don’t let it trip you up today. Why let your past affect your future? Move on.

Long-winded intro or not, that’s all I wanted to say today.

Have a great weekend!

    How cute are those pumpkin pizza faces!? So creative, Roni! I want to devour that pizza right now. Yum! Looking forward to hearing your review of your current fitbit. I'm thinking of splurging on myself and getting one. Reply

    Hi Roni! Your comment was so bang on with what I needed to hear today. I've recently lost 15 pounds on weight watchers and have been doing fairly well but then today, a combo of left over Halloween candy and a health scare with my 16 month old baby and bam total binge. It scares me that I can still lose control so easily even when I know eating healthy makes me feel good and in control. Anyways, I know the reasons behind it but im just disappointed it happened and was wondering if this still happens to you and how you either deal with it or stop it from happening? Would love your advice. Thanks so much!!! Reply
