Did I just give up this week?
Did I give up this month?
I tell ya, sometimes I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I can start the week all pumped up and motivated, and then I just fizzle. I think I fizzled. Well, I fizzled and I celebrated my daughter’s birthday so I kind of just gave myself permission to indulge.
I bought a whole bunch of blueberries for snacking this week. I had them in a bowl with strawberries a couple of times, but then I decided to stop doing that and I baked them into blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins with a lemon glaze, to be exact.
Yes, they were incredibly gooey and sweet. Clearly, I ate a ridiculous amount of sugar that day.
And then there was the birthday cake.
And the lunch out for the birthday.
Yeah… let’s all just pretend this week didn’t happen, at least as far as food is concerned.
But finding the positives… I went on a few really great walks. I had a wonderful time with my family. And I’m feeling pretty optimistic about things going forward.
Sometimes, healthy just isn’t easy. I think that in order to have any sort of longterm success, you just have to accept that fact. There will be setbacks. There will be indulgences. The key is in making sure that the indulgences are just once in a while. As long as treats remain treats, it will all be ok.
Of course, the birthday celebrating is just heating up at my house. Hubby’s is Wednesday, and mine is Thursday. And then my son’s is a couple weeks after that. We’ll see how I get through it all… I’m not going to beat myself up if I gain a few pounds!
