Motivated by The Numbers
Wednesday, August 29, 2012
I was back on track today. I think it WAS a good idea to track my eating when I went off track. I'm a numbers person. And seeing what my calories added up to...over 3000 calories...yikes...was a nice wake-up call and deterrent for today. Today, I ate at the lower end of my range and scored a nice deficit of over 500 calories. I walked to keep my streak going. My mood is extremely low. The stress at work was high again today. At one point, I really just wanted to cry...but just kept going. It was really hard. I am hopeful I am over the hump of the stress for this week at work. Tomorrow should be a better day.
We still don't have a grand-daughter. She's staying put...bless her heart. She knows when she's got it good...smart girl...already. Mama was on petosin all day and only dilated to a 3. They are giving her a break tonight and letting her rest and eat supper. Tonight, they are going to break her water and start her back on petosin. If she doesn't deliver by morning, they are going to do a C section. So, the baby will be here either tonight or tomorrow. I'm praying.
I liked the challenge I was given on the By the Numbers team. We are doing a challenge where you log your workout minutes. Each time you hit 120, you get to pick a number and are given a corresponding challenge. I chose #1 and was given the challenge of eating one green and one red fruit or vegetable today. I had strawberries and kiwi fruit with my lunch. Delish!
Hope you all had a Wonderful Wednesday! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on!
