As expected I failed just at the finish line yesterday. I was doing fine until it was time to go home again. I'd been dealing with a headache most of the day so I just wanted something salty to help make it go away. So I grabbed potato chips before I left as a snack. Then once I'd eaten those I let myself believe I'd blown it for the day so I might as well eat as much chinese take out as I wanted, rather than how much I actually needed. I ended the day 400 calories over, no exercise and short on water (I planned to have the last glass with dinner but had Coke instead). I made excuses for myself and let it go. That's my cheat for the week.

Today, we're going out to a pasta restaurant to celebrate my 6 year old's birthday. That means that I again have to be careful through the day (I'm just going to get a salad from the grocery store next door during lunch). I'll skip on the wine tonight and skip on desert. Just pasta for me.

Yesterday I met nearly all my goals. I got a headache near the end of the day and couldn't quite finish everything I set out for myself but I'm pleased with how the day went. My husband saved me from eating that last piece of birthday cake because he had two pieces so I was even under my calories.

Today's challenge is the calories. I'm going to work today and so is DH. That means no time to exercise this morning and probably take out for supper. I have to plan my breakfast and lunch very carefully.

It's a new year and typically time for new year's resolutions. I hesitate to actually make any resolutions because they always fail. But I would like this year to be the one that I make some real progress into living healthy. It's a symbolic start to new things and I'm taking the opportunity to start fresh and think positive.

I'm having such a hard time with motivation. I just can't seem to stay on track. I'm going to try to do better thiss week. But I'm starting the day with a headache and I'm not confident I can make it through the day.


Day 17

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

I have to turn things around today. This is what usually happens. I have a really good week and then a poor one, and then a really poor one. I have to turn this really poor week into at least a poor week, if not a good one.
