Stress, stress, and more stress..

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Haven't been able to blog the last couple of days because life has been crazy. My job has been unbearable this last week. And my attitude about my job has been so poor. I know I need to dig deep and just suck it up. Change is always hard. To add to that my son decided a few days ago to be difficult. It's so hard to focus on yourself when you have all these outside stressors weighing on you.

Needless to say, i'm still persevering. Last night I let myself cheat. BUT I was still mindful. I had a piece of cheese pizza before we went to the movies and at the movies I had pretzel bites with cheese. I was proud that I forgoed the gallon of soda and box of candy that I would usually woof down. Granted my choices weren't healthy, but it wasn't enough to add pounds to the scale. And I didn't beat myself up for straying. I felt like I was still in control. I made the choice and I didn't go nuts. Normally i'd say the heck with it and just eat out control until my stomach would bust...and then feel guilty and eat some more. I find that i'm more AWARE of what i'm eating. I think that's important.

So as the weekend continues...I have housework to do, which will keep me moving and my son mentioned going for a bike ride. He's been pretty humble the last few days since I took everything that was near and dear to him. I'm hoping the rest of the weekend is pretty quiet, i'm on call at work and i'm really not in the mood to have to deal with too much else.

I'm just going to keep pushing toward my goal. Forward progress!

    just remember that it is small changes that add up.,think of those choices as small steps toward the larger goal. and remember to take time for yourself

    You've got it quite right - it is quite a success to be able to have foods by our choice rather than mindlessly wolfing them down. When we do so, we also appreciate the food more, I find.
