B coffee, maybe yogurt, may eggs
L on the beach is always a salad
D meat and veggies

Yoga on the beach 4x a week now very excited about that!!

Not at all excited about returning to cold and snow

Posting here for accountability. I no long keep count of my days. After being somewhat lax following my plan ( indulging in too many legal treats ans drinking entirely too much over the holidays) I am back to work and working my plan

I never want to lose site of the fact that I am one slip up away from 60lbs...
For me, that is my truth. I've been here before and went into a backslide that lasted years main tsing is significantly mor challenging for me than losing... Another one of my truths.

Yoga is on hold until Saturday. I injured my back while moving furniture so I needed to take the week off. I hope to be able to practice on Saturday.

Let your inner light keep you warm through these cold winter months.
Embrace the om.

First binge in over a year!

Ah well, I knew it was just a matter of time absolute binge yesterday. The question now is what was the trigger? I think it was loneliness but may have been stress....perhaps a deadly combo of both

Snowed in and alone...worried about digging out in the morning to get to work on time. Made LC hot chocolate and that was the beginning of the end. I ate 15 small tootsie rolls (finished the bag), pretzels (! Don't even like them!) and the remainder of my son's girlfriend's sour patch kids (probably 6-10 of those). A spoonful of black cherry sorbet and dragged myself up to bed.
This morning I have blisters in my mouth from good only knows what...

I am however, back in the saddle. On plan today and no urge to feed the beast.

Ugh, I step away from 190lbs....always

I am on it Jeanie. I need to string a few days together to be sure. Frightening how easy it was to lose the plot and revert to old coping mechanisms

Here I am. So grateful that my binge did not lead to a downward slide. The remainder of the week went well. No urges. If course snow expected again tonight and I will be alone again tonight. I don't know why that triggers anxiety, but it does...
I will work on that

Oh yes Portia I am a lifelong struggler...or so it seems. Clean eating for a year and then...wham. What's different about this time is that I didn't let it continue. Maybe I've learned some lessons along the way? One such lesson is a binge is always lurking around every corner. I have to keep my guard up. Always!

I think you've found the key. So many people would let the binge derail everything - and I'm clearly one of those people. Don't be like me!

I think we're all very similar, good, bad and down right ugly.
You're still here so that's a plus. Not sure I've found the key but I am committed to continue my battle for now.

Keeping myself accountable

Plugging along...
Super Bowl Sunday

Yoga to start the day, party in the afternoon. Menu discussed with hosts so I am clear on what I will be eating.
I made BLT stuffed tomatoes
Drink of choice-seltzer. Working tomorrow, no desire to feel like hell

Checking in with myself

Snow days are tough! Being stuck inside pushes my willpower to new limits
Holding steady but way too many white knuckle days. I really dislike being stuck in the house

Finally getting out to yoga tonight. Have not been on my mat since Sunday.

Counting the days until spring...

Hi Jeanie
Good to see you. Hope all is well. Snowing again here although just 1-3 inches tonight. Off work next week. Driving to Tennessee to see my sister. Deluding myself that I'm heading south

This can't and won't last forever

She should look in Copper Cove by Fiddlers creek a few miles before the Marco bridge. We are leaving to drive back on Monday. Will be back in April. Not looking forward to returning to cold and snow. I love winter down here. Weather is beautiful. We had company for a week here and went on a manatee cruise that was very interesting. Saw many manatees, alligators and a few sharks.
Traffic is horrendous with all the snow birds, myself included.
Have a great trip.

Also, if she wants to be close to you, look in south Naples. I am off 41 about 2 miles from collier Coming from Marco, turn right on 41. Reflection Lakes on left. It is a gated community. Mostly single family homes. We are in a townhouse, there is only one street with toe houses and you can get some great buys. Only drawback is lanai is small. If you want to check out the area I can pm you my gate code so you can look around.
