You Might Have to Fight A Battle More Than Once to Win It

Thursday, April 28, 2016

I really wanted to do a vlog today but unfortunately I can't do those at a blog it is. First off can the weekend come just a little faster? I know it is Thursday and it's right around the corner but one more day seems almost unbearable! I love my job but sometimes it would be nice to just get a week off every once in awhile..paid of course! Haha! Speaking of work, next week I will be going to Wisconsin Dells for training. I am very excited to get time away from the office and let loose with my co-workers for a few days. My roomie and good friend knows I'm working on my weight and suggested we bring workout clothes and she will also help me with my food choices. My boss also offered to by my accountability partner so I am not as nervous about going anymore but need to make sure to be making the right choices at every turn! Due to this trip, I'll be weighing in on Monday next week..two days early so hopefully I can still turn a loss!

Last night didn't go so well...I binged and it didn't feel good. It started when my son wanted to go to McDonalds..he hasn't had it in awhile so I said ok...I also had a ton of points left so I decided to treat myself to a medium fry. Unfortunately that set me off to a whole California Kitchen pizza, chips, chex mix, oreo thins, and a regular soda. Ay Ay Ay..but I'm not going to dwell on yesterday..I'm going to just make sure that today goes well.

I can't change the past but I can fight today's battle. It just proves that no matter how good you are doing or how on track you've been that the battle is always raging! I need to remember that this will be a daily struggle...for my entire life..I need to choose what I want..choose my goals over my indulgences..and fight fight fight! I will win this war..I will become healthy and I will get where I want to go..nothing can stop me now!

    The trip sounds great and that you will have plenty of people supporting you to focus on your eating and working out while you're gone. Sorry about the overeating part though, I've done that this week and in the past as well, I definitely know it sucks! All you can do is move forward and do your best!

    the battle will alwasy rage. but ...the good news is not always intensely! but girl you are a fighter. some reason I'm reading this and wanna bawl my eyes out. not sure if its cause I ate a poutine and a chicken sandwich yesterday and forced myself to eat the rest of the chicken sandwhich---i could've taken it home and this morning I just feel bloated. I was out at lunch and was going to stop somewhere healthy..why did i stop at DQ's?! I hate dq's food! but they have a new "arisan" chicken sandwich which is half decent..but the poutine did not make me feel good..but the good thing is I didn't rush, but still ya. I felt disappointed that I did keep eating when I was full. It IS a battle stil...but like I said not as intense. Normally I would've still got ice cream. I REALLY wanted to. Because heck, that is WHAT DQ (dairy queen) is for!!!! lol. I think I fought off that at least 3x!!! And kept telling myself no, Mon, you can come back another time when you are not full and you'll enjoy it. And this is after a few years of ya, it does take a process...but though the battle doesn't really go away, i think I can safely safe it DOES get easier in some learn how to fight better. LIke you grow as a warrior. In this day you have. You are telilng yourself, not to live in the yesterdays. That is HUGE!!! There are SO many tools we warriors can find/utlize to fight better...and you ARE getting them, and will get more, and hone those even better. So you keep on beautiful fighting beautifully. And no worries. There are beach views. Sunrise times. Victory celebrations. Quiet dawns. There are partys. So know its not ALL crazy intense. pay offs coming dear girl! thanks for sharing! sending love! emoticon emoticon

    You've done well. You got right back on track. We all have slips.

    It is so nice to hear that you have support from co-workers. Enjoy your trip. Safe travels!

    I recently travelled a week for work and had no accountability partners (but still did really well) so I hope you can stay on track! And yes to fighting today's battle! That's a great attitude. Sometimes you have to acknowledge trigger foods and just move on. emoticon

    I used to be afraid of trips specially when i had no choice over food. But now i got it down. My walking shoes and resistance band are always in my suitcase. And my swimsuit. If there is no pool or gym i go walking and workout in my room
