Yesterday was a struggle!

I am feeling so great since getting more consistent with eating healthy and getting regular exercise. Yesterday I was working at home and wanted to eat crap all day long! No one was home to see me, so why not? I fought All. Day. Long!

I fought the urge through lunch. And the afternoon. And supper. And the evening.

The only thing keeping me from bingeing was focusing on how great I was feeling. And knowing I will indulge over the holiday weekend helped a little bit. It’s okay to indulge occasionally but I need to learn to plan for those times and do well more often.

I am incredibly proud to report that I stayed on track all day!

I woke up in the middle of the night hungry. I just went back to sleep. I am now starving and cannot wait for lunch. I’m trying really, really hard to stay on track today too.

This morning I was feeling a bit lighter, so stepped on the scale. It’s not official until my next weigh-in, but I lost 1.3 pounds in just one day! It made yesterday totally worth it! I’m hoping it’ll help me stick to it today as well.

At work will be easy. I packed my lunch so can only eat what I brought. Tonight could be dicey. I do need to clean the house – bad – so will have to stay busy with that. If I keep moving, I hope it’ll keep my mind focused.

Tomorrow I plan to get up and go for a run right away. Then we’ll be busy with the local 4th of July parade and other festivities.

What tips do you have for not giving in to temptation?

  1. You did better than me. When I feel I am struggling to resist, I can only hold out for so long. To succeed, I need to remove myself from the proximity of the temptation.

  2. Good for you for staying strong! I know the temptations are always there and so hard to overcome! I do what you do, I try and stay busy and sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn’t. If I do give in, I just make sure I make up for it the next day and try to dissect why and where I went wrong. That way I can try and prevent it next time. You’re doing great! I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger award! You should definitely go check out the other blogs I nominated if you are not already following them! 🙂 http://walkingmywaytoskinny1.wordpress.com/2014/07/10/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/

  3. Congratulations on making it through that day!!! I know exactly how that feels but when I get like that I almost always give in. Thank god those don’t happen too often. I’m also cleaning my house today in preparation for a party tomorrow. When I do it right, it turns into an all-day ordeal so I’m counting it as exercise!
