Note to self: this Saturday, think about these little gems when you are trying to stay on track.
This was my life over the past year - thinking about how I wanted to things to be different, writing about how I wanted things to be different, but then eating things that guaranteed no change would ever happen.
This one is timely because I splurged last night. We've been having terrible problems with our plumbing over the past two weeks, and yesterday I had had it. To relax I watched the movie For a Good Time, Call... which was cute but nothing special, and ate six dove chocolate hearts, a rice krispie treat, and a bowl of fruit loops (Boyfriend brought them home after a project with his kindergarten class). Compared to the splurges I've had in the past, this was nothing. HOWEVER, it was a lot considering how many calories I had left for the day (about 30) and because I'm starting to realize I've been eating wayyyyy to much all of my life. With a limited calorie diet I usually think, "Oh that's so few calories," but now I'm rearranging my thinking and saying to myself "OMG you've been eating SO MANY calories." That "what you will weigh" button on MFP really helps to keep that in the front of my mind. Anyyyywwaaayyyy, I don't super regret last night's carb attack, but I could have done without it (or at least stopped at the chocolates).
I like this last one especially because 1) it is true and 2) it cracks me up. As a 31 year old PhD candidate, I'm still "in" school working towards finishing my degree. Why this cracks me up is because a lot of the fitblrs out there are high school/college girls, so "study more" is really referring to algebra, or a GPA, or a standardized test to get into some program. For me it means WORK ON YOUR F*CKING DISSERTATION. And don't forget to go to the gym.
