Health Confessional: Share It and Move On

Confessing my health and fitness slip-ups to you makes me feel human again, especially after reading your confessions. I've got a new one to make . . .

Super Bowl Sunday might as well have been super food Sunday for me — and I'm not talking about the healthy variety. I went to a neighbor's house to watch the game and had the best intentions to keep the junk to a minimum. But as the marathon game went on, I kept reaching for the bad stuff and just couldn't stop.

The gooey mozzarella sticks had me at the first bite, and and I ventured onto countless saucy buffalo wings and pizza during half-time. I returned to the table multiple times during the second half for my fill of nachos and guacamole, chips and cheesy dip, and topped off the whole shebang with a big frosted cupcake. Needless to say, I had a wicked stomachache by the final whistle.

So there you have it, I've told you mine, now you tell me yours. Got anything you need to get off your chest? Share your health blunders below and I promise you'll feel better. We all are human, and we all make mistakes, and we all move on.

I watched the game, but I didn't indulge in snacks so much...I had a Spotted Cow (beer) and I didn't work out on Monday.

I was actually proud of myself on sunday, we had chips and guac and meatballs out and I only a couple meatballs (normally would have devoured them) and about a handful of chips with the guac. Then we had burgers later and was really good with adding extra veggies to it. That was the first family thing I have done in a year where I didn't gorge.

Drank about half my weight in beer and had a few chips with guac...needless to say, most of my calories came from alcohol! Skipped exercising yesterday 'cause was too hungover, but managed to eat 2 donuts for breakfast, chicken strips and fries for lunch, and split a medium pizza, salad and a slice of cake with the bf for dinner. Today's been cereal, Clif bar and banana, plus a Bar Method class. Back at it.

We had a huge snowstorm that knocked out power for 6 days from Tuesday and I didn't work out ONCE in those 6 days, citing the excuse that I couldn't since the treadmill didn't work! We ate pizza and alot of crap b/c it we had to cook over the fire and we live in the sticks so at least we didn't live on McDonalds. I also drank more alcohol than usual, but that was mostly because my parents stayed with us a few days and I needed it to stay sane!! Horrible I know. But now it's Monday and I'm back to running:) I feel better already!

This weekend was terrible for me, I don't even know what happened. I went to a candy store on saturday night where you can pick all different kinds of candy and then you pay by weight, and after eating my whole bag of chocolate in two days, I worked out that it was 900g! what?! AND I bought a 500g jar of peanut butter freakin two days ago and it's all gone too! Ah and then there were bits and bites during the superbowl.. And after eating well for so long :( But I guess it's off my chest and out of my system now, and I can start over, right..?

tlsgirl- I TOTALLY understand where you are coming from! I live in BR, so I LOVE to overindulge in King Cake also! For the superbowl my Dad does the "Superbowl of Snacks" so I went over there. I didn't do bad, I worked out a lot that morning and didn't eat much during the day so I had a deficit of calories going in. BUT...I had...two baked taquitas (frozen food), two jalepeno poppers, 1 small frozen hamburger, a few fries (like 5) and then a small bowl of ice cream. I guess I hate more than I thought. BUT... all I drank was water! So yay me for not adding any more calories!

We ate pretty well but instead of buying premade stuff we made our own, moderately healthier versions. We made pizza bagel bites instead of getting pizza and used low fat cheese and mini bagels. We made queso with lean beef, extra salsa and onions and reduced fat cheese. We even made our own french onion dip and bought baked potato chips. So in essence we didn't eat "healthy" but we made better selections. I didn't gain a pound, in fact I lost a little so it totally paid off - AND I didn't feel deprived.

I wish that some of these cheats were mine, rather than the butter-laden cake I ate all weekend. When I fall off the wagon, I *really* fall off.

After reading one of yesterday's post I was craving dark chocolate, so I went and got one with the intention to only have one small piece every once in a while. Yeah, right..I ate the whole thing. But I don't feel that bad about it, because it was the Endangered Species one, so at least I helped the chimpanzees :))

I've been waiting for this post! I was doing really well, and in the last week or so I've had about 2-3 dinners every day. I just can't stop eating. And I don't care if it's PMS, I still can't get in my jeans anymore. :(

Hahahah yeah, Lo Lo, that was my indulgence. Maybe I wouldn't have considered it one if I hadn't already been so full from a huge dinner. And I do live a little, but I've been so good lately. It's so easy to slip off the bandwagon.

I ate a bag of frosted animal cookies in 2 days...along with a lot of fries and other bad stuff. I don't regret the cookies though. I was PMSing and they were just what I wanted.

I had nachos, chicken strips, french fries, 2 margaitas, and who knows how many vodka cocktails. Most of my calories came from drinkin. I had a blast though! Thanks fit for doing this. It's comforting to know that other people indulge every now and then.

Since my wedding in May I've put on 10lbs, all in my stomach and hips. Now I'm working full time and going to school and havent' been able to get to the gym in 3 months. I feel like giving up on trying to exercise.

I still feel bad for the mcdonald's hamburger happy meal I had last week. I deliberately stayed away from the Super Bowl so I wouldn't over eat.
