Here we go again


Yesterday I fell off the wagon, HARD! I didn’t plan for the day. Meetings ran over and I was traveling to drop off flyers around town. To say I was ill prepared would be an understatement. I didn’t realize how much this whole process meant to me until I messed it all up.

I also didn’t realize how gross I would feel falling off. It gave me a SPLITTING headache, made me sick to my stomach, and I was exhausted. Who’d have thought that clean eating was actually a powerful tool!

However, they seem to say that falling off and continuing to fall is the real problem. Today we get back on that stupid wagon! That has always been my problem in the past. I would make some food mistakes and then keep making them until I was back to where I started.

This time it is different! I don’t want to fall again. I like the progress I’ve made and I want to keep succeeding! So here is to spending the weekend doing my workouts, planning my meals, and going shopping so I don’t end up in this mess again! Whew!

I am a 35 year old living in Maryland. I'm trying to find a balance between a healthy lifestyle and actually having a life.

  1. Don’t beat yourself over it, hun! I give myself one free meal a week where I can eat whatever I want … last night was mine: pizza and margaritas. I find that when I give myself that free meal, I’m able to stay stronger the rest of the week … I know I’ll be eating what I want in a few days. It works for me anyway. 🙂 Good luck!

  2. This blizzard is throwing me off for sure. Can’t get to the gym and DEFINITELY bought some “comfort food” to have on hand while we’re stuck inside. But I agree with what you’re saying… I will fall off the wagon because I use food as comfort sometimes, but hell if I don’t get right back on the next day. While of course it’s ideal to not have as many hiccups as I do, I am determined not to let it ruin tomorrow, if that makes sense!

  3. You are not alone! I tend to fall off easier in the winter… all that comfort food to keep warm is almost a survival instinct up north. Lol! Thanks for the reminder to clean up my own act 🙂

    1. I wish I had the northern blizzard to blame but here in FL I no longer have that excuse. Although this is the first time in my life that 39 feels like 20 to me!
