Everyone is entitled...

Everyone is entitled to an "off" day. And yesterday was mine. It wasn't intentional. And I kept trying to correct the "off" and continue making it "on". But it never quite happened.

I started out with my ww meeting (see yesterday's post). That went well and gave me new energy! I tracked my breakfast and ran father's day errands. Then snacked at my parents house. Seriously, I ate a little of this and a little of that. I think it was because I was really hungry at this point.

I went straight home instead of stopping at another store so I could eat dinner! I wanted to correct this "off" behavior! And I did. I had a wonderful dinner of turkey bratwurst, with grilled corn. Then I had some more snacking behavior!

I tried to correct THIS "off" behavior by going for a short run (granted it was 7:15 pm, but it's never too late!). I was jogging and after 10 mins, I got a huge cramp in my stomach. It was a different cramp than just a running cramp. I didn't know if it had to do with dinner but I ate over an hour ago! I walked a few minutes hoping the cramping would subside. I started running again and the cramping came right back. So I walked a lot of my run. I probably ran for 18 mins and walked for 10.

But it wasn't a normal workout day and I had already run twice that week which is a lot for me. I don't run much, usually 1 time a week. Anyway, I went home and tried out the Wii Personal Trainer game for my abs for 15 mins. It was just o.k. I got this free and never tried it before. At least I didn't spend money for it.

Then I was snacking again so I thought I would vacuum. Trying to correct this "off" behavior again! Well, my vacuum is a piece of s**t and after taking the whole thing apart, I didn't want to put it together. In the garbage it went and at 8:45 pm, I went off to Walmart for a new one! At 10:00 pm, I put together my new vacuum and vacuumed away! Now, my mistake was buying some ice cream at Walmart. Because for the rest of the night, I snacked on ice cream. Ugh!

Sometimes I wonder why I do the things I do. I stopped writing down my food, chalked it up to an "off" day. I guess the good this was constantly trying to correct the "off" behavior. That's a good sign. But I kept giving up.

I guess everyone is entitled to an OFF day, the key is not to let the "off" day be an "off" week! Today is fairing much better!

  1. You're so right. Had one of those days myself. My problem time is at night when we settle down, when everything is done. Like a big neon light goes on that says SNACK TIME.

    Did get out for a run tonight. Tried to beat the rain. Ended up caught in thunder, lightening, and pouring pouring rain. That was fun. Thanks to good neighbors, I got a lift home.
