A Good and Bad and then Good day...

Like most I had been dreading halloween actually gettting here ! Dont get me wrong I LOVE HALLOWEEN, I just dont love all the candy and sugary temptations that come with it. That being said today was a Good and then Bad and then Good again kind of day. It started of great because all ofthe morning a great big bag of all my favorite choclates sat on my desk for the at work trick or treat that we do and not once did my hand or mind wander that way...so YAY me for that !! but then I went out to lunch with a friend, leaving the comfort of my tightly controlled lunch and yogurt from home behind.
This is where it went wrong...off to Applebee's we went ( my choices, which makes this all the worse!!). the menu comes along and instead of ordering something from the weight wtchers menu which ofcourse would have been the healthy choice, what do I order...hmmm...some boneless buffalo wings to start and then some fried crispy shrimp and fries !!! WTF...HELLO !! So I had about 4 of the wings and 3 french fires and 3 of the shrimps before I totally wanted to hang myself !!! I know that previously the damage could have been a million times worse but why did I make that choice when I've been so good about my choices ?????

The  good ending was that I went to a halloween social hour at work where there was beer and soda and chips and cake and greasy appetizers all over the place and there I mingled with my water bottle in hand and nowhere near all the other stuff..so that I guess was my redemption for my shitty choices earlier !!!

I think you ought to congratulate yourself for NOT throwing in the towel at your second event of the day. Don't dwell on the failures-- savor the successes. Congrats on the coat!

No one is perfect! I totally understand I have had a few work receptions one which I was on clear liquids (after a fill) it was killer :) I just try to think of all the calories I am not eating :) Looking forward to starting our Nov 1st-Jan 1st Biggest Loser! Maybe this will help us all with the holiday partys!

Overall I'd call that day a success. The little slip up could have been SO much worse, and you didn't let it ruin your whole day. Congrats to you!

I also say "round up" and count that day as a win!

More good than bad, Jac!

Before..... you might have thought, WTF, I already screwed up, bring on the chocolate death cake and a margarita or 10! But you didn't! You are starting to recognize mistakes, and adjusting accordingly!

YOU ROCK!!!!!!
