What is that horrible taste????

Oh ya... cookies.

I am having a terrible start to this challenge. Emotionally I am a mess.. which is carrying over to my food choices. My food choices are making my body feel 'blech' I am not working out or running. What a terrible circle of hell I'm in.

This morning, as I lay in my bed (squished by my 6 yr old so I couldn't get out of bed), I was thinking my normal thoughts of :

  • "Well, I've messed this week up... might as well give up until next week."
  • "I wonder how many cookies are left in the bag?"
  • "What is that awful taste in my mouth??... oh right, the cookies"
Then, something hit me. Today is Wednesday. I'm only 2 days into this week... I still have 5 days to do something good. 

So... I finally got up and poured myself a glass of water.  I opened my laptop and sat on the couch reading other blogs. Now, I feel ready to tackle this week... or at least this morning.  Lets do this one step at a time.


  1. "What is that horrible taste?" - I'm used to hearing that about my cooking...

  2. Hahaha, awww, cookies. :D I'm glad you feel more ready, and you know, it's step by step like you said.

  3. Emotional eating is the most popular downfall for those of us on this journey. Don't let it beat you.

  4. Every day is the opportunity to start over. I've been in maintenance for almost 2 years - and I still have to consciously choose to eat right and exercise to stay here. (And yes, I *still* reach for food to deal with stress and negative emotions...) Good luck. :)

  5. That's right!!! It takes more than some stupid stinkin' cookies to take you out. Love the attitude. You GOT this!

  6. Take it one step at a time, but keep moving forward. Each day is a chance for improvement.
