Day 30 - 7 Month Focus

Obviously I have a long way to go to obtaining a healthy lifestyle. Once again, I have allowed life, fatigue and circumstances out of my control (or are they) to bump me off my plan a little.

Went to our church function last night. After waking early, working full time and then rushing to the event, I neglected to take care of myself for dinner. I went there and one of the first tasks assigned to me, was to set out the hordes of goodies for the workers and the band. There were cheese puffs, nuts, fruit, cookies, candy and other deliciousness! After I was done, it was a mighty fine looking spread!!!

Anyway, I truly lost my mind. I ate some cheese popcorn, fruit and had some candy. Then they brought in the real food ~ Lasagna, bread, salad and cookies. Really I did OK with this stuff I could have really over done it...I did opt for the Lasagna selecting a small piece, then some salad and one bread stick. I did not have any cookies.....I did show some restraint as they were my favorite!! Sugar cookies and of all things, dipped in chocolate! Can I just say YUM!!! (Well not that I would know....they looked awesome!!)

Anyway, the evening wore on, they had peppermint candies there, so I helped myself, then as more fatigue crept in I had more candies. I was sick!! Then around 10pm or 11pm, I have no idea what time, anyway they served Tortillas with cheese (can't think of what they are called) and chips. I could not and did not resist. I had just one, with about 3 chips.

Anyway, all is not lost, I am back on track today. Calories are in line and I'm refocused!! The whole night was not a disaster it could have been. I'm just disappointed that I did not do a better job in taking the control of my own health. Makes me wonder when I'm going to learn!!

Anyway this does give me knowledge, that I cannot trust myself in situations like that!! I will do a better job next time.

Today, we are exhausted. Slept until 11am - I never do that!! Then I read the rest of the afternoon. It's now 3:40 and I'm getting ready to go to church. We will be there until 10pm. Whew!!

Tomorrow it is rest and I'm taking time to regroup!

Have a healthy day!! Stay focused!!


  1. Wow you've been busy. There's nothing worse than being around yummy food AND being tired!!! You did good could have been so much worse. Aren't you glad for a new day? We get a fresh clean slate every morning to do with what we will. Make it a good one my friend!!!

    Love and hugs!!!

  2. I used to avoid church functions because I could not control myself around the food. I had made myself literally sick from eating too much play food. (For me, I learned, it wasn't about the food but about other issues).

    But you, you know what it was about, and that's great. Your body was just saying it was hungry.

    You are going to be fine. It's another moment with another choice.

  3. Its so hard to be in situations like that! Great job on refocusing!
