When all else fails...stick to your plan
Friday, March 11, 2011
This has been a stressful, topsy turvy week. I have a lot on my mind these days including concern about my child, my job and all the stuff I need to do that's being neglected. I feel like there's very little going on in my life right now that I can control.
That is, except the healthy lifestyle I am trying to create for myself. It seems like it's the only thing I can control. So, despite the fact that I'm a stress eater, I chose to cling tighter to my healthful eating plan so that I can continue to see progress. I wasn't perfect this week, but considering the circus that's become my life, I'm handling things admirably well. In fact, I'm ready to give myself a high five for effort.
Staying on the plan calms me because at least one thing that's been bothering me is still being addressed. So everytime I made a misstep, I climbed right back in the driver's seat at the next meal.
Persistance--not perfection. My new mantra. Onward and downward.
