True Confession Monday

Good morning ya'll! Have you entered for a chance to win in the Think Thin Give Away? You have until Wednesday to get your name in the hat!

 It's time for a round of True Confessions. I feel like a big fat fake writing this post. Why you say? What did you do little Elle Noel?! Gah, I did something bad. I did something highly illegal to the weight loss agenda. GASP! Are you sitting down?

Yesterday afternoon, I spent roughly five hours knocking back diet coke and vanilla vodka, chomping down on trashy bar food, and yelling obscenities at the television  We did it big Championship Sunday ya'll.

My husband loves football and a group of friends was headed to our favorite watering hole walking distance from our house, and I just don't know what came over me. I did my grocery shopping and laundry early in the day and I just thought- f it let's go have fun! We may have had pizza for dinner too. AHHHH! It just got so crazy, and I was little bit drunk so those cheesy frys were so damn delicious. Like other worldy.

I know I know. You can hardly believe what you're reading. We're all human, and I struggle too. This was an activity fat Leigh Ann loved. A lot. Like maybe a little more than her husband some days(sorry hunny!) She looked forward to nursing Saturday's hangover with fried food and drinks on Sunday during football season. She would drink a 1500 calorie daiquiris, chow down on cheesy sticks, fried po boys, and just genuinely not give a ffffff. Look here she is, pretending like she's cool being that fat friend who loves food!


Gross. I do not miss her.

Ironically, we were passing around a BMI calculator while the men were arguing over whether they were actually over weight because "F that! I lift weights!" It was a ton of fun, but It's time to be serious again.

Occasionally, participating in these old activities I enjoyed so much reminds me that it's OK to make mistakes.I am going to fail. I am going to have a bad day, and it's OK. It's OK to have a bad day, it's OK to not think about calories or fat or carbs every single second of everyday. I know you're thinking "You ran 9 miles Saturday! You can eat whatever you want!" Umm no. It does not work like that. I can run for days eat like crap and gain weight. That is how it works. That is the reality. Running is not a free pass for calorie take down. While we had a really great time, now I have to leave that serious Faturday in the past,  moving forward!

  2. Every deserves a day to over-indilge every so often. And honestly, you probably feel like crap, so you won't be doing that again for a LONG time. Don't beat yourself up too much!

  3. I feel ya. I felt like a big ol' pile of dog poo a couple of weeks back when I ate a huge plate of pasta that was just too good to put down. I could feel my stomach sending the "I'm full stop feeding me now" signals, but I just ignored them and kept eating. Then I felt miserably stuffed all night. I don't think it even showed on the scale, but it was just a reminder of how irresponsible I used to be with my eating habits. Good for you for blogging about it. It's not as easy to talk about the failures as it is to celebrate the successes.

  6. Hey, that's okay. We all have to have some cheat days or else we explode and go crazy. The good thing about today? It's a new day and we can start fresh and not feel guilty over our past decisions. You're a rockstar either way, so just make today count, girlfriend! You've got this :)

  7. It's nice to know you're human;-) You work REALLY HARD and are an inspiration to so many to get to work (aka working out)! It sounded like fun and besides not feeling too well (which adds to the guilt, doesn't it?) you'll probably look back on it as a really fun day. You're too diligent to let it put a damper on your overall goals.

  8. Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I ate like crap and didn't work out yesterday. But not for the same reasons as you...my reason was just pure laziness, ha! But today is a new day!

  10. Each one of us is going to have a day like that every now and again. That's life! You got it out of your system and you're already back on plan, so I say No big whoop! ;)

  11. One day is OK. Gotta let loose even when you are little like you.

  12. Failure is not final just as slow and steady wins the race. I like to use that last one to remind myself that losing weight and getting in better shape is slow and steady and I will fail at times.

  13. Honestly. I feel better seeing that you did that, because I'm on my healthier eating and work out regime, but I'm not perfect and you look so amazing at all times. Thanks for being human :)

  14. I needed this post. My day went on on fast downhill spin of calorie intake! I was quickly checking your blog for your dreadmill intervals as it will be 4 degrees here in the morning and I just can't force myself outside, so dreadmill here I come...I always feel like blog posts find me at the right time and this one really did. It is okay to fail, but not everyday...thank you for reminding me that this is a journey and sometimes the old ways come back in and we need to push them away and move on! Keep inspiring!

  15. Thanks for this post! I laughed my ass off and related to every word of it! Why must we crave and binge after a night of drunkness? I never understand why I
    Have no bottom to my stomach the following day. Btw my Saturday resembled yours too! No more pity! Move on my hero fitness pal!

  16. I had a Faturday too and it was ugly. It led to a semi-fat Sunday because I was hangover highway all day. It was awful. It was a good reminder for me why I don't do things like that anymore! My body doesn't like it no more. Thanks for being real and for making me less embarrassed as to what I did this weekend haha

  17. Oh my god she is in fact a human and not an alien as I thought. Ha ha just kidding! Girl not to downsize your food heaven but sometimes you gotta do it. If only to remind yourself how bloated and crappy you feel after. Or at least that's how I've felt since Christmas. Bleck. I know you'll bust a move and get back on the crazy train! Either way you are an inspiration! And you continue to be one!
