No loss this week. No real surprise either. Even though my eating stayed within range despite emotions running rampant from some drama early in the week; my exercise was completely nonexistent. I literally sat around the house for the remainder of the week. However I wonít focus on that. I will instead focus on the fact that while in the midst of some very negative feelings, I didnít overeat nor binge. So that in itself is a win and one I am proud of. Changing how I handle food in the middle of stress or other negativity is a slow process; but one that is definitely in development. Iím making baby steps in this regard, but steps nevertheless.
Now contending with the holiday, I have 2 meals scheduled this week that I have marked as free ones. One is dinner tonight and the other is tomorrow. The rest of the week will be business as usually with a strong emphasis on some real exercise. I am finding that by pre planning my holiday meals and/ or festivities it helps keep me from using this time of the year as a free for all eating frenzy.
As for today I am baking 2 pies this morning, Pumpkin and Apple. The apple will be my very first attempt at that type of pie so I am hoping for a good outcome. Later this afternoon DH and I will be off to help the grandson with Round 2 of his Christmas List.
We will finish up scoping out whatís new at Toys R Us than head over to Target to check out some Christmas decorations. Yes, we are big on decorating for this holiday too. hee, hee, hee After all, can one have too many Christmas Lights? I donít think so!! Anyway post shopping we will grab some dinner with the grandson before returning the little guy to his mommy. On the agenda for Wednesday is cooking and taking the Turkey and all its trimmings over to our daughterís place for a Thanksgiving Celebration. The grandsonís daddy has him for the official Turkey Day this year so we will celebrate with him tomorrow. Following dinner DH and me as well as our daughter, grandson, and daughter's best friend will go see a Disney on Ice show which should be LOTS of FUN.
Now I donít expect any different treatment from the daughter or my husband for that matter during our time together this week however I will make a concerted effort to keep my focus on my grandson and ignore any rude or demeaning comments flung my way. So God willing we can have one day with no family drama. Of course if that happens it will be the first drama free holiday in a very long time but as they say, miracles do happen.
