So, I’m nowhere near organized enough to do what I had originally planned and touch-base every day with my stats.
So, you’re going to get what you get for now.
I weighed in this morning at 269lbs. So, 1 lbs down from my previous check-in. I think this was, mostly, due to a decrease in appetite yesterday.
Today I have eaten to make up for it, so bye-bye 1 lbs lost.
I hate daylight savings. I was doing great and my energy was up and then BAM! It’s like someone pulled the carpet out from under me.
Suddenly, I’m thrust back into darkness in the mornings and my energy drops through the floor.
I haven’t been logging my food, either.
But, I can tell you that I had a chocolate glazed donut, 5 mini hershey squares and 4 blueberry waffles today. That’s not all I ate, of course, but that’s the unhealthy stuff.
I also had, about, 6 servings of vegetables. They were on 2 six inch subs from Subway and in our chicken fajitas tonight….so, I’m guessing my calorie intake is, probably, about 700 over my goal.
I have done a bit of exercise in the past couple of days, but really nothing major. I’m talking a few push-ups here, a 16 second plank there, 12 squats…
My work has been extremely stressful for me for several months and this week has, truly, had me run off my feet. The fact that I spend my day in a “spin” is part of why I’m struggling. Having to log food just feels like even more responsibility and work that I have to try and fit in, despite the fact that I’m not keeping-up with my job.
However, I know that I have to put some healthy boundaries in place and take care of myself. If I can’t make 30 minutes for myself every day, there is something seriously wrong.
So, despite the fact that I just made 4 blueberry waffles and am watching “The Amazing Race” with my husband, instead of returning to my hole on the couch, I came over to the table to write.
Another little victory.
Every time I make a good decision like this one, I feel it gives me strength to make even more good decisions.
Maybe I’ll even try a quick yoga session before bed tonight.
Little choices. Little victories. Little moments.
Sometimes it is the smallest victories that help us triumph in the end. Everyone has bad and stressful weeks, I’m glad to see you focusing on finding those small good moments that can help you through the bad ones.
Remember, as one of my fave characters would say… “tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it.”
Hopefully tomorrow is better and that by next week all the bad stuff is a distant memory for you:).
