Day 69 & 70 - 7 Month Focus

Well I have not been focusing or maximizing anything the last 2 days. Not that I've gone off , well too far off, of my plan. It's just been that I've been super busy since Friday morning to get everything done. Today, I finally have some time to get back to my plan. Whew!

I finally figured out my blog issue and I'm now able to comment on all blogs. I have to say, it's been frustrating not being able to do what I want to do. Now, I'm trying to log into my Bobybugg system and can't get logged on. Am I cursed? I have such trouble with computers, TV's and anything electronic!!! Geez ~ SOOOOOO FRUSTRATING!

Realized yesterday that I'm still not where I want to be when it comes to emotional eating. Friday was a non-stop day from the minute I got up until about 11:00pm. Right after work, I needed to go to the store and while I was there, I picked up some candy ~ knowing full well that that evening we were going to have a higher calorie meal. We celebrated Father Day's, on Friday, cause my Hubby works on Sundays. He wanted ribs, corn on the cob, potato salad and cake. I planned my day well so I could indulge, with super small portions and enjoy the meal. So why the candy? Having that just pushed me over the top!!! Well it's because I was stressed and I needed to comfort myself.

I guess I went there because I did not have the time to stop and pray, or read something inspirational or check out my other safe guards that help me get through this stressful time. I could not even connect with my Hubby because he was busy too! So I went back to my old ways.

I still did OK with the other food. I kept pretty close to what I wanted to do. But Saturday, again was super busy and I just did not want to focus. Did OK with food that day, but I did not exercise, blog, drink enough water or track my food. Not even sure I got in my steps.

Just bums me out!

It's so easy, for me, to fall back to my old ways. It's really frustrating!'s just a day and a half of set backs. I am back to it today and focused.

What do you do when you are faced with this type of situation? Any hints?

Keep focused!


  1. I can so relate! I've been having a few more days like that creep in. I think, for me, I need to plan better. I need to RESOLVE in my mind that choosing those foods are NOT an option. Being responsible to my blog helps because I know people are looking to me for encouragement sometimes. But it all comes down to that decision. When we make a poor choice, we do need to move on quickly, and have a plan of action for when we may feel weak again!

    It's always hard on holiday weekends.
    You have made SO many good choice, tho, Joy. So hold on to all the good you have done because it FAR outweighs the not-so-good. It's NOT okay to do that again, mind you... so don't feel comforted enough to slip back... but it IS okay to be gentle with yourself and acknowledge your accomplishments!

    You go girl!
    Happy Father's Day to your hubs.


  2. The important thing is that you now recognize the problem. You know what is happening and that is the first vital step. You've made that step. Good for you!
