The good and the bad and the Easter candy

I'm having a good week for exercise and a very bad week for eating. So I'm publicly calling myself out. I've actually been getting up in the morning to work out. That's huge for me.

However, when I was at the store Monday I bought some cheap post-easter chocolate candies. I thought to myself that I would only have a couple of pieces at a time. Usually that would be the case. I'll eat sweets and I can have small portions, but I like to savor each little bite. Except it's finals week and "that" time for me. I've wolfed down almost the whole bag of candy in two days. Boo! I feel fat and bloated and ashamed right now.

And then I feel guilty for how I feel, because even though I am trying to lose some weight, I am at a healthy weight and am satisfied with how I look almost 100%. At least 95%. So I shouldn't have these negative feelings. But I still shouldn't have eaten all that chocolate. I have a 2nd bag. I'm going to to take it to work tomorrow and share the love.

This is why I don't buy treats or keep it in the house. I can be good almost every day, but it only takes one or two bad days to derail my goals.

In the true meaning of Easter, I'm going to forgive myself and let it go. Tomorrow is a new day.
