Lest you think I am perfect.

I would say that overall I am pretty faithful to my cause, but there are days, and sometimes days that turn into weeks that I am just not all with it. Lets look at the last couple of evenings. It has been muchie city. Night before last it was 2 skinny cow sammys and a couple of bananas. But then last night.... oh last night was worse. 3 packs of 100 cal cookies, and a bowl of chips and salsa.

Now I know these are not horrible choices and I did not flat out empty the pantry, but it was a bit of a binge. I am choosing to recognize it am move forward. My choices were not great but if I look back I would have really gone nuts. I would have destroyed a whole bag of chips and an entire jar of salsa. I am not like that anymore, but that person lurks in the shadows waiting for his chance.

I also have not been great about working out this week. I have got in 1 workout so far since Tuesday weigh in. I would have liked to have gotten in 3. I will try to get in 1 or 2 over the weekend. and then another Tuesday morning. It is funny how it works. You work out you generally have more energy and feel better, but you have this internal struggle to actually go and work out. Oh well there is always tomorrow. If I have learned one thing in this journey it is that we have to stop focusing on the past. Learn from it and move on.

In more fun news I am off to St. Louis this weekend to see the Dave Matthews Band at Busch Stadium. This is sure to be a fun weekend with lots of eating out. I am going to do my best to eat right and stay away from the booze. Wish me luck.

Normal faced them and kept your cool! "Binge eating" on 100-calorie packs and bananas is probably pretty far from what you were doing a few months ago, huh? I always consider these times in the range of "Best...better...good...ok...bad...worse...and I'll start again Monday!" Anytime I can keep it in the "ok" side of the chart, I consider it a victory! I think you did ok!
