My 4 yr old got into our bed at 12:30 last night. I was tired and let her be until I woke up around 3am. I successfully put her back in her bed at that time but then couldn't really get back to sleep. UGH. At 5:30 she came in again. She gave me a kiss and went back to her room...talking to her sister telling her to wake up. As it was before 6am and DH was home, I got myself ready to get on the elliptical. Got in my 30 minutes.
That all started my day off grumpy. Fine. I said I was upset about it and now am letting it go. I'm going to try that today. Allow myself a minute to be upset, say it, then let it go, moving on with a more upbeat reaction.
I didn't get cardio done yesterday but I think my body needed the rest. That's fine. Even though I gave in to an emotional soda and candy bar I stayed within my calories. I'm pleased with that. I move forward more than back. That's the goal!
It's time to revisit the Emotional Eating articles that helped last year. A month or 2 ago Sparkpeople sent then series out in daily emails but I didn't reread them at that point. Maybe I should have! A refresher is always good, right?!
I'm going take measurements this weekend and post progress pictures. It's been a while. Not that I am expecting huge results, but it'll be nice to see changes, however small.
Have a great day. Good luck with your choices today. WE CAN DO IT!!!
