Health Confessional: Share It and Move On

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

The weekend is behind us and as I mentioned before, Friday through Sunday can be the hardest on our healthy lifestyles and this past weekend really gave me a run for my money. The biggest problem is that I've rediscovered Krispy Kreme donuts. My parents were in town the other weekend and my dad has an affinity for Krispy Kremes. He bought a dozen of them one morning and it's been downhill for me ever since. I've been craving, buying, and eating them on a somewhat daily basis. There is just something about a warm donut that gets me every time. But starting today I'm off the donuts and back on the egg whites and fruit.

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 you 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 am addicted to Sunkist. I'm averaging about 4 cans per day right now. I'm trying to find an alternative. Right now I'm substituting iced tea. So far, not doing to well.

Lets see, I am back at work after a month long overseas holiday in the sun and my eating hasn't been so fab. This weeks includes, 1 piece banana bread with butter, 1 sausage roll with tomato sauce, a few chocolate bars at 3pm And cheese, way too much cheese/

I had a huge cheeseburger and a hot dog with the works followed by strawberry shortcake at my company bbq today. Back to salads starting tomorrow! It was totally worth an extra run session though :)

Over the last two and a half weeks I fell off the food wagon and gained back 4 of the 8 lbs I lost. Time to get back into it!

Ice cream is my major weakness, but I have been being good about not eating it. There was some left last night in the gallon container but I gave all of it to the little brother so that I would not eat it, and I ate a half of an apple instead! Today I am splurging on 100-calorie packs of the Oreo Thin Crisps and maybe even some Counter Culture frozen yogurt-- my favorite? The Humphrey Yogart- plain yogurt with honey, fresh grapes, strawberries, bananas and granola!! Yummy!! :)

In 'n Out Burger... damn them for making such tasty burger! I've been working out really hard and logging in a lot of calories burned, BUT then I play that little mind game of justification. That is the hardest part about exercising and diet. Because you think to yourself well i burned a ton of calories so now I can eat what I want... I deserve it, but really you're just fooling yourself. So now I am packing a dinner for after my workout so I don't grab something on the way home (In 'n Out is 5 mins. from my house).

I have pretty good willpower to eat healthy, but pizza is my extreme weakness, if we order one for dinner i can't just have one slice and call it a night. haha Luckily we are moving at the end of the month and trying to save money so there won't be any pizza nights for awhile.

Smoking during the bar exam...I don't feel all that bad b/c it was the bar exam after all, and it's totally stressful, but my runs definitely went a little downhill.

Uggg perfect timing for this post... Just yesterday I pulled into my gym after work and when I got out of the car and started reaching for my gym bag- I noticed it wasn't there! I forgot it at home! Instead of spending the next hour at the gym I took my lazy butt home and sat on the couch eating fast food... Totally feeling guilty today.

Oh my goodness, I've been on a downward spiral lately. My new offense is sneaking away from my desk at 3pm to hit the convenience store. And then I buy TWO candy bars and EAT BOTH at my desk. WHY?! Why am I doing this to myself?? Today I brought some more food from home so hopefully I can quit this exercise in overindulgence!

I mixed up some chocolate chip cookies. I ate about a cookie's worth of the batter, then I ate a cookie. I know it doesn't sound bad, but tonight I'll probably do the same! (I'm trying the method of refridgerating the dough for 24-48 hours. It supposedly yields a better cookie, but I think it's just an excuse to have cookie dough in the fridge!) Oh, and they were made with Ghiradelli chocolate chips with Heath toffee bits in them too!

ice cream or some kind of chips every once in awhile. Recent faves are edy's slow churned cheesecake diva or their birthday cake flavor!

Me, it's Peanut Butter... If my husband doesn't stop me, I could eat the whole jar. I love it so much and we sure know how high in calories it is :( I'm guessing I don't have enough fat in my diet so I try to eat more nuts and nut bars (the Kind bars are very delicious)I think it helps the bad craving a little.

Reading some of these posts made me feel a little better. No offense, girlies! I just came back from 12 days vacation. Let's just say that was a disaster and threw my whole routine offtrack in a HUGE way. No workouts, drinking quite a bit at least every second evening, ate at least 2 whole jars (albeit 'light') PB over that course of time, chips, pizza, nachos, bagels, bacon....all the stuff I normally avoid. I gained 6.5 lbs in that time. I cried my eyes out when I stepped on the scale a couple of days ago. My own fault though! So now, oatmeal for bfast and carrots for lunch, steamed fish and veggies for dinner....... :s

Not into doughnuts anymore but once upon a time, I did my share of damage..oh yes. My weakness is such a silly one...I mean, I love really GOOD food, quality food. I am into fresh, into proper cooking, into honest ingredients and yet..and yet.. I still crave, and occasionally can wolf down entire boxes.. of.. Kraft Macaroni n'Cheese. Not even the wet-sauce one. I mean the dry powder packet stuff. With loads of butter, milk, black pepper...and a massive glass of milk. There, I feel better, sorta. /hangs head in shame

Luckily, there is no Krispy Kreme where I live. There is, however, ice cream (!) and I do eat plenty of that.

wow you guys are f-ing stellar. i cheat EVERYDAY. i do work out 2ice a day but i can't stop. now i've replaced healthy foods with 'cravings' and then feel bad and work it all off again. it's from all the years of depriving myself. i haven't gained weight but the junk makes me feel like crap afterward. i know this is just a phase... i can't wait for it to pass.

I had some alcohol and sweeties on Friday night. I've been healthy otherwise. :D
