I Can't Believe I Ate the Whole Thing!!

My best friend got his garage ran through by a drunk driver doing an estimated 75 miles an hour on Thursday early morning. It destroyed the garage and it literally looked like a bomb had gone off in there. So I have been helping him get it cleaned out enough so that he and his wife and get the stuff out of the rubble that needs to be claimed on insurance written down before the contractors come in and just chunk it all. We made some great progress yesterday after 6 hours of hard manual labor. Add that onto the second day in a row of a 3 mile run in 31 minutes, and I had me quite the calorie deficit going on yesterday! There is where the title comes in. So I conked out on the couch last night after trying to finish Top Shot on History Channel. The main reason I woke up was that I was hungry again. Enter the Samoa Girl Scout cookies. Yeah, you guessed it. What was going to be 5 cookies turned into all 15 in the packet! Here is the sad part. Still wound up with a 600 calorie deficit for the day! But looking back, 1500 would have been better! Here is the funny thing. I am not freaked out about it. I did it, I owned it, but I have no fear of it. I mean I have shown myself time after time that an incident like that is not going to de-rail the Shane Train. And in my head, I think that is how those skinny people we all long to be operate. You get a freebie every once in awhile, just stay on path 97% of the time is all. In the beginning of all this, I was fighting the food, determined to be all big bad and tough and show food I didn't need it ever! I was not going to indulge and it couldn't make me! It seems as I have built my better eating habits and come into my own in the exercise and activity world, letting it go every once in awhile has really done wonders for me and made it so much less taxing to stay on track most of the time. I only worry that it will become a slowly developing habit to allow it a little more often and a little more often until things get back to old ways. I think that is one of the things this blog does for me. I am open and honest on here and seeing that I did that in black and white makes me realize its possible ramifications, and that sets my mind that it will not.

I also thing getting to below 200 will steel my resolve to never get there again, whatever needs to be done to keep me there taking priority! I have spoke to God on more than one occasion and said you get me there and I will not go back! I can't go back on that now can I?

Well I better get this coffee drank and get on the laundry around here. We managed to get pretty far behind and Kathy needs some help getting it caught up. I hope to get some other work done around here and go help Jason some more today. Ya'll have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Cookies, suck (lol). I had a cookie experience too. Hey, I hope your friends know that you guys can charge the insurance company back for all the labour you're doing at a reasonable price. We had a sewer back-up and they "paid" my hubby and I for the hours we put in cleaning everything. I think we only charged it out at $10.00/hour, but every little bit back counts. Why work for nothing?
