And, I have only to go to the mirror to find the culprit who was driving the out-of-control rig.
My exercising this week was fine, but my eating! OH MY GOD, my eating! How can this happen when the first 3 weeks I stayed the course pretty well?
Word of warning: NEVER, EVER make your famous coffee-chocolate chip cookies (or whatever you are known for in the kitchen) when you are in wellness mode -- you end up sampling the entire batch to ensure its quality. Weird thing is that sweets have never been my big attraction - although this week they were!
Recovery week seemed to start okay, but as the week came to a close all my good food stashes dried up in the house and office. That would be Clue #1 that I ignored. Then, I went to a Valentine's Day dinner at the local winery, a lovely madrigal dinner....I didn't eat too poorly there BUT I drank two glasses of wine, the sweet grapey kind, not the dry, less sugary kind. Oh, they were delicious. BUT......
....somehow I think that sugary nectar turned on my "must-have-sugar" switch! That's when the mass consumption of cookies began.
After yoga tonight, I am going by the store to stock up on healthy foods again and am going to recommit to the program eating guidelines for the week. HOLD ME TO IT, FOLKS!
