Feeling like crap today

And it's totally my own fault.

It has been a crazy weekend with all the Halloween plans. We took the kids to the mall for trick or treating and to get their pictures taken (my sister works at Flash!). Anyway, by the time we left I was wiped out. I knew we still had trick or treating in the neighborhood too. So we ordered pizza. I started with just 2 pieces, but went back for a third. I even said halfway through the third piece that it didn't even taste good. But of course I finished it. It's that whole, finish what's on your plate, don't waste food and therefore money by not finishing your food. So I ate it. I knew I would gain overnight just because of the salt content of pizza. I was doing well with the whole candy thing until the hubby bought 6 or 7 bags of candy for us to hand out. Of course we didn't hand it all out. So there's tons sitting right by the door. I ended up eating several pieces last night. Whatever, no big deal right? The hubby put the candy up somewhere hard for me to reach so I wouldn't be as tempted.

I also told him to take the leftover pizza with him for lunch today. He didn't. So when lunch came around and there wasn't anything "easy" to make (read quick...I was hungry!) I had the leftover pizza. Then I proceeded to have 6 cookies! Geez! I then ate a bunch of candy. I felt really sick today. I still feel really gross. So I went somewhere else for the afternoon so I wouldn't be tempted by the candy (of course they had candy sitting out at their house too!). I didn't have time to make dinner, so the hubby stopped at Jimmy John's so I got an un-which. It was AWESOME! I need to remember how much better I feel when I good food. Real food. I know that I feel so gross when I eat the junk food. It just is hard to remember that when I am trying to figure out what to eat. Convenience just ends up winning!

But I did stock up on some healthy stuff from the grocery store. I bought lots of pumpkin so I can try out some new recipes. Tonight I will do better. No more food. Just lots and lots of water. Tomorrow is a new day. I have the ability to change the course of my day with every new decision I face. I am choosing not to workout tonight because I feel so awful. I will get a workout in tomorrow (the hubby doesn't work for the next two days). Don't forget to vote!!


  1. Hi Emily, I just saw your tweet and titles like that are never good. That looks like a gross couple days. How are you doing now?

  2. I currently just feel sluggish from the junk. It always amazes me how food really affects your body, positively and negatively. I know tomorrow will be better. I get to spend the day in the kitchen! I always do better on the days I am cookin because I am constantly trying new, healthy dishes. I LOVE making nutritious meals from scratch for my family.
