Hey Guys and Gals,
Sooooo, today has been a bad day. The plan kind of went out of the window right about lunchtime as I was out with a friend for food. I was planning on getting a grilled chicken breast with vegetables and a water with lime and mint leaves. Unfortunately it was the….. SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. (Every parent knows why that’s typed in capitals!).
I’m not sure what it is about the children’s menu but it clearly has some sort of evil power that makes all parent unable to stop themselves from polishing off all the leftovers. I physically do not seem to care whether Blakely has touched every single one of his chips, or if Frankie has drooled over some fish fingers…. I am powerless to resist the urge to finish whatever they leave!
Anyway, I did it. It was done. I probably should have left it there. Except I didn’t. I needed petrol on the way home and the chocolate bars at the counter were literally speaking to me! “Chanelle, you’ve already ruined your plan for today, you may as well eat me…go on, you know you want to”, and I did want to, very much! So, I did because, like I say, I couldn’t resist!
It gets worse… as I am typing this I am drinking a gin and tonic (slimline tonic albeit but gin is present nevertheless!). I only opened the fridge for a bottle of water to cool me down, while I am sat in the sauna otherwise known as my south facing living room, but the summery coloured raspberry gin was practically pouring itself into the glass and adding ice and frozen berries before I had a clue what was happening!!
It was basically totally beyond my control. It’s delicious by the way, but everytime I take a sip I feel guilty and know that when my head is back in the right place tomorrow I will be fuming with myself.
So now I am sat thinking about tomorrow and I’m cross at myself. All these “I was powerless”, “I couldn’t resist”, “It was beyond my control” excuses go through my head all the time and it sometimes worries me that I feel like that’s an actual valid reason. Do any of you guys ever think these things?? 80% of the time I can completely focus, but I do admit that no matter how much I enjoy the ease of the plan and the taste of my fave products I do find it hard sometimes. This seems like quite a negative blog post and I really don’t want it to.
I feel like I should be 100% honest with you all as we are all in the same boat. Most of my Instagram pics and posts are positive and show my success so far and I gush over the plan because I do, in fairness, actually love it. But I just wanted to make it clear that if sometimes you’re not finding it easy: you’re not the only one.
I have learnt so much since starting Celebrity Slim and becoming a small part of the team. But the most important thing is that I DO have the control, I AM NOT powerless and I most definitely CAN resist! Today has been a bad day, and I will be cross at myself tomorrow, but it doesn’t happen often.
Usually with other plans I have just thrown in the towel after a bad day and my eating has spiralled again. But I really believe in this plan and feel supported by the Celebrity Slim team, which is why I am posting this because I hope on your “off” days you can get your head back in the right place for the following day like I will be doing tomorrow. And like I will continue to, I hope you can draw a line under it, don’t feel too bad, and focus on moving forward.
Leave a comment below if you’ve had a day like me recently and how you coped with it the next day. Maybe I will use some of your methods to stay on the straight and (soon to be) narrow!!
