So this week has been pretty stressful. Usually the perfect excuse for me to go home, eat a bunch of crap, and justify every unnecessary sugary treat. However, this week has been a slow move forward. Wednesday, I had to go to the doctor for a wrist injury and was surprised and embarrassed to learn I've gained 6lbs since I was there last month. So I decided if I gained it that fast, it shouldn't be that big of a deal to get rid of it, right? I've been noticing here and there that my clothes are fitting tighter, but I just chose to ignore it. I'm trying really hard to not go to the extreme and burn out like I did last time.

I work in a stressful environment. My mother works in the building and often provides lunch and snacks for us. I think I hurt her feelings today when I turned down her chocolate cake. It's just that I didn't want it. I mean, sure it tastes good, but I'm realizing how eating so many simple sugars makes me so tired. Plus if I log it honestly (which I've been doing on a different website because Spark doesn't have many things I tried to look up), that would use up a good portion of my calories for today and it's barely 10:30 in the morning.

It's spring break for the kids and I, which means Monday I'm back to having little to no time. I'm trying to figure out if I want to start getting up earlier to workout or still try to do it on my nights I'm not at school. It's definitely a balancing act - family, school, and work. I'm so indecisive when it comes to meal plans. I hope to get rid of that so we can eat better as a family.

Last night was my 2nd night back to walking and I actually felt pretty good. Bottom line is when I take an active role in my health, I feel better. Yes it's a struggle, but overall, I'm excited. Walking/jogging on the treadmill seems to be just the stress reliever I need!

    just keep making good decisions, and you will see results... if you're anything like me it can be far too easy to justify making bad food choices or excusing yourself from exercising (too busy, no time, no ideas for what to cook, too tired to exercise just to name a few of my old favourites!)... but NEVER feel guilty for doing the right thing, as hard as it can be to say no to cake ;)
