So I am trying to keep postivie notes in my life. But had a hard Tuesday and like the last time nothing went according to plan I just became a bump on a pickle. Just found myself on the couch pouting, like that was gonna make everything come together. I then carb loaded, true I stayed within my limits, but it showed the next day.
So I woke up yesterday reminding myself, no matter what life throws at me I have to keep moving forward. It's easy to say and somedays harder to do. So I start with a positive outlook, and my bus to works breaks down. But I keep myself calm and just realize its just a bump, we can keep moving forward, and a new bus showed up and I was on time to work.
Then on the way home, that bus broke down too. You know what its just time. But during the day I had scheduled my whole night. From time on the bus, workout, dinner, store, so when I had a hiccup I just redid the schedule. Knew where I needed a few more hands. Hence I needed to make treats for the work function today and so I had my son take them out of the oven while I worked out. I even made cupcakes and lemon bars are sweets are the easiest thing for me to avoid. Having everything planned, even my downtime made my downtime more enjoyable because I knew I had everything together.
I didn't follow it exactly, but at the end of the night I felt accomplished, I enjoyed every minute and this morning the scale showed it.
As for today there is a huge food day at work. How am I getting through it, by ravishing the veggie tray. The fruit tray once in a while. And my treat is six triscuits and an ounce of cheese. Which I remind myself to enjoy each bite of. Sometimes when we are eating "guilt" food, which cheese and crackers aren't, we eat it fast, like it we don't taste it then it doesn't count. But oh it does, so I enjoy it, every decadent moment of it.
But its not lunch time yet. so lets see how the self control keeps holding out.
