Doing better than expected...
Sunday, January 20, 2013
It is Sunday morning, and I'm not sure where yesterday went, but I maintained my goals and healthy eating so all in all I'm doing pretty good!
I got up in the morning and started my homework. Got that done as far as I needed and then went shopping with my mom. I only bought what I needed, although those things really added up. It was fun to just get some errands taken care of, hang out with my mom, and not have to worry about food. Before we shopped, we went to Noodles & Company. I got something new and with the gluten-free noodles. It was healthier than what I would really have wanted to get, and a smaller portion. It was a good lunch. Kept me full all afternoon too. Yippee!
After shopping we got dinner (at home) and healthy. Then went to see a country music show and then got a few things for dinner for tonight. I was proud again not to get anything I didn't need.
Maybe I'm getting the hang of this a little. I'm thinking and planning ahead when something changes in my daily schedule. This gives me a lot of strength going into the rest of the weekend. I've been making good decisions for twenty one days, and I'm still here to report it. This time around, these choices are feeling different, easier to make, because I know what will happen after all my hard work. I will be a different version of myself. I will have new opportunities and hopefully the confidence that I lost back in high school or college.
Another great part of this experience is making my parents proud of me. I know they are worried about my health (as am I). I don't want to be worrying them about my life. I want them to be proud of the life that I am living, the choices that I am making and the direction that my life is heading.
Now I am ready to face the rest of the weekend. More to report tomorrow! Thanks for the support and taking the time to read my random thoughts and updates. It is so helpful.
