February Confessions

I consumed an entire bag of Hershey’s almond kisses in three days…by myself.

I haven’t worked out in two weeks (but that’s gong to change today).

I have had a glass of red wine every night since Tuesday.

Last Sunday, I took a six and half hour train ride from Virginia to Penn Station in NYC. Took two subway rides to Grand Central. Met my friend, and walked to Ruby Foo’s to eat vegetarian sushi, and drink wine. Hopped on a train from Grand Central to Westchester County, NY to pick up my car at Jeff’s parents’ house, then drove to my parents’ house in Rockland County, NY. All by myself, while lugging a HUGE suitcase, stuffed with dirty clothes and two four-pound dumbbells, behind me. (Don’t ask)

I started to cry in my car the other day, but stopped when I thought of this Dane Cook skit about crying.

Jeff and I spent our first Valentine’s Day apart this year. It was OK, though, because I went out to dinner with my mom. 🙂 Jeff and I plan to have a delayed celebration.

Since Wednesday, I’ve watched almost the entire sixth season of Gilmore Girls, while laying on my couch in my pajamas.

Through it all, I have remained mostly positive, because I know things are going to be OK.

    I won’t ask what prompted the “episode.” All it takes for me is one horrible event, not even a full day of bad things, just one, teeny, little thing that really hits me wrong and I’m off. Monday was that day for me. I came home, put the pups outside, kicked off my shoes and laid on the couch staring at the wall in my work clothes feeling sorry for myself. I finally got up, went upstairs, changed into my lounge clothes and baked a batch of oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and ate about a half dozen, THEN I ate dinner. No workout.

    I didn’t get back on my workouts until Thursday – when the cookies were all gone.

    I hope this makes you feel better about binging and not working out! Just so I didn’t make myself feel even worse, I haven’t gotten on the scale since last Friday! I didn’t even want to know what the damage was!

    I’m so glad you’ve been able to keep a positive attitude! I find that’s the most important thing when you’re having a bad day that lingers.

    Hang in there! Get those workouts going again! They really do help!

    Hope you and Jeff have a wonderful belated Valentine’s Day!

  2. Sorry it’s been such a tough last few weeks. We all have times like that, and as long as the patterns don’t continue, then it’s fine:) I hope the next week gets better for you!

  3. Keeping you and your loved ones in my thoughts.

    I often find solo travel to be very useful in times like these- provide great mental space to think it all through. Hope your travels were beneficial to you.

  4. Ugh, no shame in the chocolate eating. There are some weeks where wine and chocolate are definitely needed. And I say with a little Gilmore Girls added in that it sounds like the trifecta and a nice week. 🙂

  5. Haven’t seen any new blog posts in past few days. Hope all is well with yourself, family and friends.

    Just wanted to pop in to let you know that the world awaits your return to the blogosphere!

    We’re out here. We notice. And most importantly, we care!
