See what can happen when you don’t? Please note that I had my head in the game. I was attempting to catch a ball at second base. The base runner may have been looking at something shiny or a pretty bird or something. We’ll never truly know as the facts always get skewed when stories are retold later on (especially when there are beers and patios involved).
What can not be refuted is that a mouse travelled a few feet through the air, landed on her right hip and now has some lovely black, blue, purple and red accessories to carry around for the next few weeks.
And now has to tell this story over and over.
AND also has to tell people that she does NOT have an abusive boyfriend.
So although I did have my head in the game up until that point, feeling good, feeling great, feeling wonderful all week, riding high on sweet scent of my x-weighted challenge success, I promptly checked right out of the game after I was knocked to the earth during that game.
Because in the 24 hours after that, I consumed a cupcake, a blizzard, sweet potato fries, an entire container of Liberté Méditerranée yogurt, a bag of nuts, Pizza Pizza, Doritos, and some other stuff that I can’t recall but I know there’s more.
Yeah. Go big or go home, eh?
It’s not that I used my brother’s birthday (Jainey is ollllllllllllllld) on the weekend as an excuse to pig out, and it’s not that this was even the worst pig out that I’ve ever had because this was nothing because in the grand scheme of things. Even though I listed a lot of crap there, I didn’t overeat as much as I have in the past. I only felt discomfort last night and gave my ice cream away, something that I would have never done in the past.
The problem is that I just stopped caring at some point.
And this is the cycle I go through time and time again that ruins success.
Distraction, not caring, taking my head out of the game. Whether it’s counting points, calories, portions or just making WISE CHOICES – why do I have to go overboard? I don’t have to.
Whether it’s a birthday or a Tuesday, I have to ALWAYS run with my head up.
I can’t afford to go ass over tea kettle every weekend.
It’s too hot to wear pants and long sleeve shirts, for Pete’s sake!
***so, what do YOU do to keep your head in the game and avoid getting steamrolled?***
