Last week, I had a meltdown over my weight because I gained three pounds. How does that happen in one week? Anyway…I weighed myself Sunday and I lost two pounds. Better.
I hope to stay on the losing trend, but I know that if I can’t get my eating under control, that’s not going to happen.
Yesterday, I ate a huuuuuge sprinkle doughnut and 1-1/2 slices of pumpkin bread at work. And, it’s so stupid that I did this because I feel awful after I consume large amounts of sugar. For example: Over the weekend, me and Mr. T took T Junior out for ice cream. As soon as we were done and back in the minivan, I wanted to take a nap. It was all I could do to keep my eyes open!
Then, today, T Junior and I were invited to a play date. The hostess ordered sandwiches for everyone, so I knew I had that coming up. Still, I managed to eat three leftover meatballs and half of T Junior’s grilled cheese and turkey sandwich (that he didn’t want) before we left the house! And, when I zipped through the Starbuck’s drive-thu to get a bottle of water, I heard myself ordering a tall mocha frappucino light. We all know light is not really light. It was still 300 calories and, oh yeah, the total came to 5 bucks! Five dollars to make myself fatter and to feel guilty. So dumb.
The worst part is that I’m paying for Weight Watchers Online and I haven’t been tracking what I’ve been eating. That’s why I’m turning to public humiliation here on mom vs. marathon. I will be posting what I ate for the day each night until I can regain control. So, look for that at the end of my running posts (or in a separate post — just depends on when I get my run and writing done for the day).
Maybe this will scare me back on track.
