Well, last entry I talked about my temptation to eat out of stress. I was successful in beating it, with suggestions by fellow Sparkers. Thanks. What helped the most was talking about it with my husband and then going for a swim. That really cleared my head.
Today I weighed myself. Though I ate fine and worked out all week, I gained a pound, but I'm not worried about it now that I got over the initial disappointment. I know I ate too much sodium over the weekend. It's hard when hubby wants to eat out for four meals each weekend. I told him I'd rather not do that anymore. He'll work with me on that.
Today after work (I got off at 2) I came home to the merengue chocolate chunk cookies I made for a friend. I hadn't given them away yet so I ate one. Then I reached for another one and caught myself and quickly packed up the cookies and took them to a neighbor. He's not even the person they were intended for but it was the fastest way I could get rid of them. whew.
I know I am probably still feeling a bit bummed that I didn't lose this week, that's why I went for the cookies. But I just felt so good this week and am feeling tone in my back muscles, which is very crucial for me since I have so many back problems. My pants are fitting better and I'm loving that. I've always been quick to remember the negative and forget the positive. That is going to change. i know it.
All in all I feel better having shared this all in my blog.
