This past weekend we entertained job candidates from out of state and it was a very socially active time. I hosted a dinner event Friday night and ate way too much. I also tasted way too much during prep time. Saturday I was exhausted and didn't get nearly enough move time in. Sunday was another very hectic day of meetings and social gatherings with this couple from out of state. It was so challenging. I tried to do well most of the time, but then got so worn out that my willpower disappeared and I did awful things like eatine tons of peanuts. Since that has become a trouble spot for me it is one of the things I will give up for Lent this year. The others are sodas and candy. I wonder if these changes will become habit and really make a difference or whether I might just cling to something else that can be equally destructive??? Anyway, when I got on the scale this morning I was dismayed and shocked to see I had gained three pounds. Perhaps it is at least partly water weight from too much salt. So my plan is to try to wash out my system this week and get back on track. I am so mad at myself I could just scream. Yet, I know today is a new day and I can make a new me, a better me, a healthier me yet!
