|My watch gave me a birthday cake!|
Today, I thought I could pull myself out of it and jump right back into healthy eating, but the hardest day for me is day 1. I don't know why it is so hard for me to recover after a bad eating day, but it seems like the food I ate yesterday left hooks in my body and is pulling me back causing me to eat those things again. I guess I could just throw out the left overs but that is such a waste of food, and with three others in the house there could be mutiny.
I did great today until I came home at 3:30 and was very hungry. I was planning on having a yogurt and then eating a protein shake for dinner since Matt is in school today, but for some reason I just couldn't seem to control myself and before I knew it, I had totally blown the whole day out of the water. I'm pretty disappointed in myself since I was so ready to eat well after showing a loss on the scale for the first time in a month last Friday, and now I am back at square one: having to eat well for about a week to work off all the damage I did over the weekend and just get back down to my lowest weight.
The worst thing about it is that I eat and eat until I make myself sick, and then I'm moaning in pain the rest of the night wondering why I haven't yet learned my lesson from the last time I did this to myself. So unfortunately tomorrow is day 1 again, and if I can get past day 1, I should be good to go for a while.
