fallen | The Shrinking Jeans of Crooked Eyebrow


Posted by crookedeyebrow on February 5, 2009

This past week has been a whirlwind of emotions and I’m guessing the scale would only make it worse. You know what happens with me and emotions? Eating. Yes, even when I’m not hungry I will find something full of fat and sugar to eat. It’s automatic and a bad habit I have been trying to break. But I fell hard this week, in more ways then one. 

Last week I was on track, losing an amazing 5# and  starting the couch to 5k program. I was feeling fabulous, ready to take on the world.This week? Not one step was taken that wasn’t absolutely needed. There were only steps taken to the couch and then to the kitchen. I fell off the wagon.

Then with awful news to start my week I turned to pizza and chocolate. In a senseless act I had a fluttering thought that chocolate would heal my soul for that one moment. In went half a bag of peanut butter cups. Did I feel better? Nope. Only guilty. I hate guilt.

Today I struggle to pick myself up and dust off my hands and get back on track. I have to, it is far better emotional and physically for me if I do so. It beats sitting and eating, right? Right. By next week I hope I will be talking about how great it feels to run and to be eating right. No more falling of track…

Have you fallen too? I hope you know it’s ok. Pick your self back up and find your way back and get going. If I can, you can! Will you be right along with us again next week? I sure hope so, because all my sisters motivate me.

*thank you for all your kind words and prayers over the last few days. From the bottom of my heart, I love you.
