As I've mentioned over the past few months, I've been struggling to get my mindset right again and on the path of weight loss. Most weekdays, I eat well all day and then self-sabotage at night either with dinner or dessert. (Weekends have honestly been an overall eating and no exercise disaster.) Every night I go to bed and tell myself "tomorrow will be different" and vow to get my head back on straight. I do well for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner, but then the carb/sweet/crunchy/creamy/whatever monster creeps back in and takes over.

I'm trying to figure out what's really bothering me and why I can't overcome this. I did so well when I lost my first 50 pounds and now that I've slid back a little and can't seem to grasp control again, I feel like a failure or a "lifestyle change" fraud in some way. I'm embarrassed for myself and also sad and mad that I'm slipping into old habits and losing my new good ones.

This morning I was sipping my cup of coffee and watching part of Extreme Weight Loss before breakfast and before getting ready for work. I was relating with the contestant on TV, and wondering what my problem is that's keeping me from getting my butt in gear again. I decided to use some of the tools that I knew I had at my fingertips. I listened to a few of the audio inspirational messages on my Half Size Me Weight Loss Coach app about Sabotage, Slipping Up and Guilt and it hit me that I just need to take action. I put on my walking clothes and sneakers and headed out the door for a 30-minute walk. It was a start and it felt so good to move! I came back, had a healthy breakfast and got ready for work. I was a little late but I didn't care. It was worth it.

Baby Steps...now at work and I didn't pack a lunch due to my late start this morning. I have my go-to healthy options nearby memorized and I will go buy one of those. Then worry about dinner and the danger zone later. I really need to keep the mantra of One Day At A Time in mind, or in my case, One Meal At A Time.

I've been going quite a bit over my RDI the past 4 days (thanks, TOM, for the cravings!), but I'm tracking everything so I still feel accountable. I'm still in a deficit most days, but not as much as I would like to be. I have not exercised much either. I'm still trying to get my head back in the right place.

I went out to dinner with my family last night at Outback Steakhouse. I planned ahead, tracked ahead in my app, and ordered the 6 oz. filet with steamed broccoli, and had 1/6 of the Bloomin' Onion we ordered which I made sure to make room for. I avoided all bread and butter. It all fit within my RDI. Then they brought a free sundae for dessert to make up for my dad's messed up steak, so we all shared that. I had about 1/4 of that which put me over. Then at home I was craving more chocolate so I had some chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Grrr! I was doing so good then I let a FREE FRICKIN SUNDAE derail me. I am so weak.
