Will be a challenging weekend...
Saturday, June 05, 2010
I'm feeling really good this week! I truly enjoyed my last two days of maternity leave with my little girl before I return to work full time on Monday. I'm trying to keep positive and instead of being sad that I am going back to work, I am grateful for the time that I had. I am also grateful that my husband will be home with her. It is a comfort level that I cannot even describe.
I felt like a rock star this week with my program. Eating in my range, exercising regularly, and just overall feeling great! However, there are quite a few events this weekend that will make tracking food difficult: A night out with hubby tonight, big cookout tomorrow, and dinner with family on Monday. I am reminding myself:
~It is OK to go over a little from time to time (especially on my birthday!)
~I will still make healthy decisions and have a good time
~I will not "ruin" these happy events by stressing myself about what I can't eat (there are no "bad" foods) or thinking of how many calories something has once I've made a decision to eat it
My sweet hubby has planned a wonderful night for us tonight and I plan to enjoy our time together!
I will keep you posted on how I do :)
Also, I'm still wearing the pedometer and have STILL not broken 10,000 steps! This will continue to be a challenge due to my cubicle job. I'm looking for opportunities to get more steps, but it will likely just have to be by extending my workout walks.
Have a great weekend!
