Monday morning is bittersweet. I am excited to start the work week, I have my meal plans and my work out plans, but boy, would I rather be sleeping. Which I did, past the snooze button. So the crockpot meal got converted to a regular cooking meal, and the workout got switch to tongiht after diiner while the men are at boyscouts.
Last night I fell prey to the fatitude, all or nothing. I had two plates of vegetables and noodles at the mongolian grill, and came home to discover that near as I could estimate, chicken and noodles cooked in sesame oil are a 500 a plate. so then I ate an additional 1000 in my evening snack, nutter butters and apples, and bananas. I was so full from dinner that I couldn't sleep, was uncomfortable and the irrational part of my brain kept saying " food will make it feel better." I ended up sleeping in the chair because my tossing and getting up was keeping husband awake.
but today, is a new day. I am awake, my lunch and snacks are packed, and I have a cup of joy tea to start my day. I can get some steps in on a work break, and will finish up the 10,000 at the gym tonight.
I bought an new motivational sign yesterday. It says "i would give up chocolate, but I am not a quitter." while I might have to give up chocolate, I am not a quitter. I am a sparker, and I know that Spark people can give me the tools that I need to succeed. I just need to implement those tools. Spark people is not going to fall into the category of tried and failed, like all the other diets that I have been on. This time is different, it's a lifestyle, not a quick fix.
