I so get this. When I am on track it's easy to support others and be upbeat. When I am off track I feel like I can't remember what to do. Silly huh?
We can do it! I've been off track with high stress working conditions the last few weeks and it's soooo annoying.

Even though you're not new, I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.
One over indulgent meal or even weekend's worth of over eating WILL NOT make or break your healthy lifestyle. If you eat right 80% of the time, you're still doing better than the average American.
As the old song goes,"accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative". Give yourself credit for all the positive things you do for yourself and don't beat yourself up because you're not perfect. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. Yes, a person can eat noodles and still be healthy. I'm living proof of that. ;)

What a great opportunity to introduce your grandchildren to new healthier options.
Would it be possible to use whole wheat noodles? Having a snack might help when your daughter is running late.
I've been doing pretty well. Restarted my journey, exercised daily and finally eating less and healthily. However, when an interruption occurs, it puts me completely off. Occasionally, I babysit grandchildren, and that throws me off. Fixing meals for them is different - they like noodles. Or, I watch them in the afternoon. It gets around the time I usually eat, but their mother is late and doesn't want me to feed them. By the time they leave, it is way over the time for me to eat, and I'm exhausted. I've got to try to manage "interruptions". Any suggestions would be so appreciated.
Life is what you make it. Why not choose to be happy?
