The good, the bad, and...
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Well the good is that I lost .5 pounds over the last two weeks. That is not much but I thought I gained a few so I am going to count that as a good thing- maybe it is a step in the right direction and the scale will keep moving down. I have a few other good things- I got in a nap yesterday- this was much needed. I also stayed within my calorie range and drank 8 cups of water. SO those are all the good things from yesterday.
Not the bad- yes it must be done. My son did not have a good day after school and things were stressful- it was a struggle in the car ride home and what did I do when I got home- dug into a bag of chocolate chips- yes I ate a few small handfuls. I also did not work out yesterday and I lost my temper once but I was able to retreat to my room with the help of my boyfriend and got a little break. This morning was not a good start and so I think he will probably have another rough day. But he has ABA therapy today so maybe I can get something done around the house for the two hours he is there and then the evening will be less stressful. Once I can get the house under control I would like to use that time to go to the gym. But right now I need to get the house cleaned and organized so that it is easier to maintain and will be less of a problem on a day to day basis.
And the other- I have managed to make myself a very yummy morning smoothy. This is my second day making- it consists of protein powder, milk, and coffee. Not sure if it is the "best" morning breakfast but right now it is keeping me full, keeping me awake, and fairly cheap. I know I should eat a big hearty breakfast but to be honest right now I have a hard enough time getting up (I never sleep enough), getting the animals fed, getting the kid fed, getting the kid ready for school, getting myself ready for school, and helping the boyfriend get ready too. I have been working on saving money so I cooked ahead a lot of lunches and breakfasts for my son and froze them (all gluten free). So it is easier in the morning packing his lunch and getting his breakfast ready. I think I have about two weeks left worth of those then I will have to spend more money and a weekend getting things set up for another month or six weeks. I kind of loose a weekend doing this but it makes things easier in the long run (I think). I am working really hard on saving money and making things simpler in my life. I know that it is not easy with a special needs kid but I have to try.
So that was yesterdays good, bad and other (nothing too ugly). I hope that today is somewhat productive and I am able to get things accomplished and maybe make the weekend better.
