Guilt Consumed Me

After yesterday's shocking realization that I hadn't been to the gym in 3 months, I finally went last night and it was great! I started back slow by doing 10 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the stationary bike and 5 minutes on the elliptical. I made sure to go straight to the gym after work which helped eliminate any excuse I could have thought up. My husband joined me at the gym which was also great! Whenever we got home, I made dinner. I stuck to my meal plan and made brown sugar garlic chicken over noodles.

After dinner, I went to my moms house with our dogs to let them run around with her dogs. My plan for my dogs to use up all of their pent up energy worked like a dream because whenever I got home they were ready for their evening nap. This gave me some time to clean the dishes. After I was done cleaning I was craving a snack. This weekend I made the mistake of buying oatmeal cream pie cookies by little debbies. To make it worse, they ended up being the double stuffed 12 pack. I told myself that I was buying them for my husband's lunches, but it ends up that I am the only one who has eaten them so far. There are three missing and one of them "went missing" last night after dinner. I would love to say that it was a waste of 330 calories but at the time it was worth double that. The 170 calories worth of riesens (dark chocolate caramel bites) that I ate after the oatmeal cream pie cookie was actually a waste of calories. I only ate those because they were sitting out and I had little self control as my guilt consumed me for consuming a oatmeal cream pie cookie.
About 80 calories burned total in 30 minutes of Wii Fit.
I did, however, have enough self control to end the vicious cycle of binge/guilt/binge/guilt after eating the riesens. I decided that I would work out some more since I had a mini binge. I did 30 minutes of Wii Fit and felt much better about myself afterwards. The gym and Wii Fit all in one night? Despite the mini binge, that is something to be proud of!

  1. I like that balance, binges happen, but following one with a workout is a great way to move past it!
