Day 9 of winter holidays
Sunday, December 30, 2012
I have been away from the computer for a couple of days now. Wednesday I went down to my parents with the kids to celebrate Christmas with them. It is always hard to eat healthy down there. Not having my own food plus we typically eat take out or fast food. I tracked my calories everyday except yesterday and today. I did better than I had anticipated but I can still feel the bloat. Too much salt in all that take out. My hands always feel tight and swollen when I eat take out. I have high blood pressure so salt and I aren't on great terms anyway. Regardless of the last several days and their consequences, I am ready to get focused on my meals again. I love the holidays and family and such but I am ready for our routine and normalcy to return. So ready. I like routine. It is so nice to be home with the kids though. I love being off and spending time at home with them. The first week flew by and this week is sure to do the same. I hope to get back to eating well and shooting for 3 workouts a week. The kids are home Monday and Tuesday but they need to get back to daycare on Wednesday. They need to get back on routine too plus we have to pay whether they attend or not so last week stunk because they didn't go a single day but we paid in full. This week they need to at least go for half the week! Get our money's worth a bit more! Daycare is expensive for 2 kids.
Anyways. I hope to get all of the junk out of the house tomorrow and get back on track. I don't know what this past week did to my progress that I had made, but that doesn't matter as much as what'd do next. I'm not letting a few off days throw me off. I'm back to at least 6 cups of water tomorrow. Fiber, vitamins, fruits, veggies. I'm back to tracking tomorrow. I am anxious for things to settle down so that I can focus on me again. It feels like the holidays always end up with me trying to please everyone else and I come last. It's not fair but its just temporary. Maybe I can fit me in more soon. So sad.
