I’ll be honest with you, I’m not in the mood to post what I ate this past week. I haven’t even tracked since Friday, so I am not even 100% sure of what I ate. I know that a lot of it wasn’t on the Simply Filling plan and my body is hating me greatly for it.
I could write a million and one excuses as to why my eating wasn’t stellar, but excuses are lame. It boils down to the fact that I got it in my head that since I’m not going to my meeting tonight (Mr. B was supposed to be home), I gave myself permission to ‘let go.’ Pair that with the fact that I’m missing Mr. B like crazy and makes me sad, which leads to emotional eating. And well all that crap combined together just doesn’t end up well.
My week was filled with cupcakes, birthday cake, ribs, drinks, sushi, cookies, late night snacking, and not enough water. Oh and an empty tracker for the week. I should make myself go to my meeting tonight and face the scale, but part of me really wants to say screw it. Skipping meetings usually isn’t my style though, well not because of a crappy eating week. And since Mr. B isn’t going to be home until much later, I could go to my meeting.
I should just suck it up, right? Face the scale, write it off as a crappy week, and get my ass back to the grind. I guess we’ll see what happens. I’m sure I will be battling myself all day today about it.
I was just going to skip this post all together and act like I ‘forgot.’ But, I write this blog because I want to be honest and I want to show people I’m not perfect. That I am a real person who still battles food issues, like emotional eating. I’m also the person who won’t let a few days turn into a month, and then a year of bad days. If there’s one thing I’ve learned on this journey is, although eating well and losing weight is hard, being 327lbs is MUCH more hard!
I shall now brush myself off, put on my big girl panties, and write in my tracker!
How was your week? How do you deal with crappy food days?
