Overeating on a Day Off

Short Post today. Yesterday I snacked all day on my day off. Veterans Day. I wasn’t upset or bored or feeling alone or anything like that. I also wasn’t feeling super successful at my weight loss and therefore felt the need to sabotage myself. None of my old triggers were there. The only legit feeling I had was I really wanted those foods. I think I was getting a little tired of the other things I was eating. I missed yogurt. Well, not real yogurt but coconut cultured yogurt and I had two left so I had them. But I made vegetable soup which is my go-to for volumizing and not eating a lot of calories so that saved me some. But I got into the Girl Scout cookies I bought from the neighbors’ kids. Shame, shame. And I ate way too many of the bite-lettes – Laura’s Wholesome Junk food. Today however, I was in the field all day for work and we didn’t want to stop for lunch so I had a deficit of calories which helped. I still had more Pop Chips when I came home but I still don’t think that took me over. We’ll see. The only good thing about overeating now – it paying attention to how I react to it. And I have to say – I did well. I didn’t wake up this morning beating myself up nor did I pretend it didn’t happen. I didn’t plan for extra workouts and I didn’t say “well, the week’s ruined, screw it! I’m going to eat whatever I want the rest of the week!”   No, I got up, I did my affirmations and I continued with my day. I gave it my all this morning in Cardio 3 of Body Revolution and I ate my normal breakfast of eggs, turkey bacon and avocado. And I kept a positive attitude throughout the day. Today is a new day. God-willing, the next day is always a new day. Cheers.
