Well let's see, once again I made it thru the weekend with no weight gain which always makes me feel more confident. Started work at 7:56 am and at 7:57 the issues started pouring in. Three emergencies in less then 20 minues. NOT how a person wants to start out a Monday. My first instinct was to reach for something unhealthy but instead - I turned to a 'planned' serving of cantaloupe and strawberries. Made it thru the first hurdle of the day. As it progressed, more issues occurred and were handled and I never turned to food. In short, it was a day from hell......BUT, thru it all, I stuck tight to my plan AND even managed to get a 2nd round of exercise in at lunchtime to keep the stress at bay. I am feeling great about being back on track but there are still so many 'shaky' moments when I get lazy or want something unhealthy because I think it will make me feel better. I've learned that I just need to have it all planned out and work it meal by meal during the course of the day. Add in exercise and water and I feel so much more in control and before I know it, I've turned a 'bad/lousy' day into a GREAT day. WOO HOOOO.
Hopefully tomorrow I can make it a fabulous day!
