Reports don't lie.........

Sunday, December 20, 2015

So neither can I.

I discovered a few new reports today that I have not noticed before. What lead to this was a bad binge last night. It's was not pretty and I logged it all this morning. I have to be honest with myself and can not blame 'Insanity' for not losing weight. I can not expect any program - even one this hard, to out-run a bad nutrition intake.

I have always tried to be truthful here in my blogs and have not hidden the fact that I know pretty much where my fall down lies. It's not in chocolate, or carbs or even food at all. It's alcohol. I've made tremendous strides in cutting down over this last year and have gone from drinking daily, to only on weekends (unless I am on a very rare night out in the week) The trouble is, that when I do drink, I don't have an OFF switch. I know it's bad for me, I know what all the health experts say - particularly when you 'overload'

This last week, I felt like I had really made so much efforts food wise - and I did. For 5 days, I have eaten almost perfectly according to the 40/40/20 ratio plan. But for 2 days - last week Sunday and the big one last night, I have done everything to excess. This is enough to send my weekly average over the line.

Both over the top days were caused by boredom, loneliness and inactivity which lead me to drinking which in turn leads to food excess. I thought I would share my reports in this blog - transparency for anyone whose been reading my Insanity journey!

Funnily enough, the last chart from yesterday has an almost perfect 'Spark' pie chart in nutrient breakdown!!!

    I joined the sobriety world 18years ago. I could not stop drinking once I began and I knew I had a huge problem on my hands. Just stopping wouldn't work. I needed help so I began A.A….it saved my life. I am not pointing fingers and suggesting you may have a problem with alcohol. Your story just sounds a little similar to mind. You actually have done the first step. you admitted that you cannot stop drinking after the first drink. If you have any questions, please spark mail me. I am here if you need anything. Best wishes.

    I am doing the exact same thing, once I have a glass or two of wine, good food choices go out the window. I know I would do so much better with less or no alcohol. That is when I eat AFTER dinner and it is usually not a great choice. Boo.....something to work on.

    Marg, now that you've zeroed in on your Kriptonite all you have to do is keep away from it... Drag your pup around the block, clean out a closet, plan a dream trip then pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

    Your honesty is inspiring, wishing you great health in the days ahead. Cheers, Brad
