Thunder, meatloaf and lack of planning

O.K., I promised I would blog every time I failed. I got home from work and put on my walking jeans but it was thundering and the wind was blowing pretty hard so I did'nt walk. I made a favorite dinner of meatloaf and ate way too much...then the snacking started. Candy corn Candy pumpkins and a small apple pie. I am ashamed to admit this to all of you who are working so faithfully.
Thinking about this now I realize that I should have gone in my room and done a dvd or just done jumping jacks or push up or even virtual jump rope to some good music. I probably would have been able to say no to so much eating.
I realize now that I need a backup plan! Advice is always welcome ladies. Thanks for all of the posts, they help me feel like there is hope (:

Don't be so hard on yourself. Today is a new day and you can keep working toward your goals. As for a backup plan my only advice is that I always exercise first thing in the morning so I can get it out of the way. If I wait until the end of the day I never get to exercising. I know with work some people cannot do that. That's what works for me. There is always hope. :-)

hey, Sherry, Let's get a possitive post going for the next time. Let's get on the plus side! :) You can do this thang! It's good to confess too. Keeps you accountable. I totally get it! and we are here for you!

It is a new day, like Rebecca already said. And, you can work doubly! Double your workout to make up for last night. It doesn't work in Bible reading, but it does with exercise. jeje

I am with ya. I had some candy corn too. just gotta know when is when. I went and hid them! I haven't had them in years so that was my excuse, but my teeth felt so icky! my tummy too! uhhhgg. only had a few at a time but well, guess that adds up. jeje Soo... word to the wise.. Hide your eyes. haha. no hide the candy corn!

and oh a tip from Jillian, brush your teeth after dinner so you aren't tempted to eat all night long. (my revised version)

Love ya and am cheering for ya,
Dani Joy

God's mercies are new every morning. It's ok to mess up. We're human. The real test comes AFTER mess up. Are you gonna just wallow in shame or are you gonna accept responsibility and pick yourself up and keep moving forward?

Admitting mistakes are wonderful. Just remember that it's not "failure" unless you refuse to acknowledge it. Your acknowledgment is proof that YOU CAN DO THIS!

Praying for your success this week!

I'm with the others. You can get up and start again. One of my favorite verses is, "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again..." Proverbs 24:16 We each have our falls throughout the day, but if we get up, we can return and start anew!
I'm praying that you get up and continue with us! We all need to work together. (I might need you to encourage me when I fall.) :-)

Hi Sherry, how is it going today? I hope that you got over the bump, and are back at it again! I know the feeling of not wanting to do what you know you should do. It is mind over matter. Usually, once you get over the hump, and decide to exercise, or not put that food in your mouth, you feel really good. So next time, just look in the mirror and ask yourself, what is the best choice? You will make the right one. I am praying for you, so I know you will do it. God is able to give you the strength. I know all about the candy corn, etc. I have a bag of it in my desk that someone gave to me. I usually will put 4 or 5 of them on the desk and eat them slowly. Hopefully the bag will be gone soon. There was a time I would eat the whole bag at once. Not good. Anyhow, the best way to get over that is not have that food in the house. Think of the $ you will save by not buying it (even if it on sale). Then you won't be tempted to eat it. Someone told me to buy grapes or nuts instead and eat them. So I will share that with you. Keep up the good work. I am waiting for a good report. -- Cindy B. (Dani put us in a group together - so glad to be in this with you).

Eat dinner (enjoy!)-brush your teeth (vigorously!)-15 minute after dinner walk (w/purpose!) (there are videos for this)-read a proverb (be still)-hang with the fam-or-workout (heartily, as to the Lord!)...then lay down in peace, and sleep :).
