Bless me Blogland...

For I have sinned.  It has been 3 days since my last confession.  This was not a good eating weekend.  At all.  It started Friday and continued right on into last night.  I don't know what made me do it.  I don't know if it's work stuff, or personal stuff or just being tired of dealing with the idea of eating well and losing weight but I fell off the wagon...HARD.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I jumped from the wagon, rolled about 50 feet, got up ran after the wagon and kicked it as hard as I could.  I have never been a sneaky eater.  I eat out in the open.  I don't come from an overly judgmental lot and Hubby has never made me feel bad about eating but Friday afternoon, I bought a bag of Milano cookies, ate half of it and hid the rest in a cabinet.  I ate a little bit each day after that when Hubby wasn't around.  Why did I sneak it in the house and why was I ashamed to eat it?  I have no idea.  The rest of the weekend is a blur of hamburgers, french fries, beer, wine, soda (yes, people...SODA), pizza, wings.  You name it.  I ate it.  How much water did I drink, you ask?  About 32 oz.  Tops.  All. weekend. long.  It was ugly, my friends.  Very ugly.

But it's a new dawn and a new day and a new week and a new opportunity to do better.  I fessed up to Hubby about the cookies last night.  Just had to get it out in the open.  I weighed in this morning and the scale gods were kind.  No change from last week.  It could've been worse.  Much worse.

The rest of the weekend as good.  I spent Saturday cleaning my house top to bottom.  It looks great!  I went so far as to organize the girls' bedroom.  I really wish I would've taken a "before" pic.  It looked like a tornado had gone through there.  But now there's a place for everything, everything in its place and those places have labels to remind them where stuff should go.  My youngest can't read yet but I figured her older sister can help her out.  Feels so nice to have the house a bit more organized.  Last week, Hubby started clearing out the den to get his office in working order.  We found a bookcase over the weekend to put in there so that's coming along nicely as well.  Saturday night, my mother was kind enough to watch our kids for a few hours so we could go to a housewarming party.  A lot of fun and I learned how to play beer pong. Sunday was pretty mellow.  Watched some movies, did some meal planning, went grocery shopping, played with the kiddos.  Now it's Monday.  Back to work.  Ugh.  I have my breakfast, lunch and snack packed so here's hoping I'm back on the wagon with the eating.

We are twins! I had the same kind of weekend. I on the other hand am a recovering secret eater, I ate in secret the whole weekend, I don't know what came over me. Today is a new day though, now if I can survive the sugar withdrawals, all will be right with the world!

You probably burned calories chasing the wagon, and deeefinitely while cleaning. I know that offset the cookies. :)

Girl! Add eating homemade buttercream frosting from the bowl....several spoonfuls and we would be twins! At least the scale was kind to you! It was not to me. :)

I think we all have times like that, but it's good you're getting back on track and not continuing to eat like that! I bet you burned a bunch of calories with all that cleaning and organizing!

now that you have admitted the "wagon" incident, get back on and do what you have been doing for so long to get such great results. I don't think it's the slip-up that should be discouraging...you told hubby about the cookies....and didn't turn it in to a month of crazy! Major in my book.

We all have days like that sometimes. We all know you will just pick yourself up & get back on that wagon. It is a new day and I know you will rock it.
