Today we had a 2 hour delay because of the snow. My daughter, age almost 17 decided she didn't want to in to school. Since they are off next week for Presidents week I said it was ok (she is a straight A student). So, she decided she was going to help me today and asked what she could do. She the volunteered to go grocery shopping for me.
This was great. We made out a list of what I needed and off she went. She came back with all the things on the list and little else. No temptation, no decisions about calories, no feeling deprived because I couldn't have something.
I can't tell you how great that was. I have the food I need to keep on track and no temptations that are calling to me. She thought it was fun until I asked her how she would like to do it every week for decades. Not so much fun anymore!!
So, I made it my business to get on the treadmill again today. Haven't missed a day yet. Still hate it, but still doing it!
