Day 155: Snack Hangover

Yesterday was NOT GOOD. I had a last-day-of-staycation freakout. My wife overindulged at the roller derby and after on Saturday, so she was down for the count. Our plans for the day were cancelled. And I used the last day of staycation to have a kind of “I haven’t relaxed enough” spasm. So today I have a snack hangover after spending a full day watching garbage and eating junk.

In a weird way, this is a good thing. I think it really DID give me some sort of last staycation ya-yas. Get that out of my system and buckle into going back to work. But I’m running late this morning and so this is gonna be a short one. I got the exercise in, I’m about to log the food. Like yesterday, I’m still kinda looking forward to getting back to work.

Snack hangoverĀ and the damage done.

“One day at a time” is the AA mantra I’m trying to carry over to my food and food planning. But “if you fall, get right back up” is — probably not actually a mantra of theirs, but something I see a lot in recovery circles. And it’s equally important.

So a snack hangover is not an excuse for snack hair of the dog. It’s a reason to bounce back swinging, not to give up. So I had a bad day yesterday, and yesterday’s over. Today’s today. Reset and start again.
