Well, I have to say that just focusing on a few daily goals goals is already helping my head... and body feel better!
It turns out that I was really not eating enough and after just a few days of eating MORE calories I am really feeling the benefits! I was trying not to over do it, but in reality was depriving myself of to much. I LOVE the tracking tool, it is so key to my success here!
I have eaten breakfast everyday with the kids for three days now and it truly makes a difference! I have felt better from the very beginning of the day, which helps me to get through the day with a little less stress.. which with 4 four kids is a GOOD thing!
My eldest (15) daughter went back to school today. So I will have to get used to doing things without my helper again, but I look forward to it too, because of course she wasn't always helpful and needed her own attention. She was getting bored and ready to get back to things. Plus, I might occasionally have a minute or two to myself. Ok not often, but even on the rare occasions the three little ones were busy and/or sleeping at the same time she was right by my side ready for some time with just the two of us... : )
Which I always enjoy too, but I also like to breathe my own air every once in awhile!
Unfortunately, while updating my page (since my return) I had to go back to my ticker and add weight onto it.... which was a little hard, BUT I know that I am going to start moving the scale in the right direction again soon... so it will be ok.
I am feeling optimistic about things and that is always nice.
I hope that I can maintain tracking my food and daily goals. I have decided that I am going to stick with just maintaining daily goals for atleast two weeks. I don't want to rush things and end up discouraged.
So for the most part things are going well and I'm feeling pretty good about getting back into healthier routine again! I hope everyone is feeling encouraged today!
