Live and Learn
Tuesday, May 25, 2010
They say you live and learn...and I guess it's true. This past weekend was crazy with recitals, sleepovers, soccer games. No rest for me...and no time to work out. Then yesterday I get a call from the school nurse...my youngest has a high fever---come get her! Take her to the doctor and sure enough, strep throat! So needless to say, after an exhausting weekend and now this...I think I DESERVE a treat. And I treated myself the way I used to...with food!
Waking up this morning...I'm thinking WOW! Coping strategies definitely need to be employed in times of stress. This is my biggest trigger. I know what I need to do...I just have to DO IT. Baked Cheetos at 11pm not good---although I guess I can say at least I chose Baked. I should have brushed my teeth and gone to bed! Sleep...what a concept! Oh well....time to re-group and get on with today, which is going well so far, I might add. Back on track and planning to work out this afternoon.
What I learned: When life throws you lemons, make lemonade--just don't drink it! Water is a better choice!
