I have been pretty dedicated (knock on wood) this past week. All or nothing girl is still raging to make a comeback but I keep shooing her into the background of my thoughts. If someone could actually listen to my inner thoughts I would be locked up in a straight jacket pronto! I mean I have inner battles with my old self and my new self about everything! For example, I caught my old self making negative comments about how bad they thought my arms looked, but my new self took a stand for herself and said "Hey they are getting stronger everyday so back off!" A NSV today was I actually beat a craving, and when I say craving I mean feeling as if I would never live if I didn't have the new peanut butter oreos we started selling craving! My new self reminded me that if I bought the $5.29 bag of oreos most likely I was going to eat at least half of them before I left work. Then my new self reminded me that I had come prepared with a great snack of string cheese and a juicy apple. I beat that craving and it felt damn good.
Another victory today was I jumped on the scale this morning and I lost! It wasn't even a full pound but it was a loss. The old me would have been so frustrated that I probably would have inhaled the package of oreos, but the new me thought that it was pretty great. That small loss showed that I am on the right path and that I can do this!
I had Gracie's all school fair tonight where she got to show me around her classroom and show me all of her projects. I was so proud of her and how far she has come this year! One of the first grade teachers even made a remark that I have a great kid and she hopes Gracie is in her class next year! I rewarded her tonight with 2 books from the book fair. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter!
Have a great evening everyone!
