I've learned that going to visit family makes it difficult to stay on track. This is very sad to me because I LOVE visiting my family, however when I'm away from my fridge and my cupboards it's hard to manage what I eat appropriately. I went to see a brother and his wife last weekend. They are changing their eating habits also, (going vegan) so I figured I'd be pretty safe. . . NOPE. My Mom was there with buckets of goodies, all my favs, and like I said I didn't have my own cupboards and fridge to snack from. It was a rough weekend. Two days undid two weeks worth of work, and left me feeling bloated and sick. I think I'm over it now. At least the sick bloated part. I'm learning, and that's important too. I'm glad my body is beginning to want healthier food, and tell me off when I give it crap. So now, I'm back to one day at a time.
On another note, I've found myself obsessing with the scale lately; to an unhealthy degree. I'm talking I'm weighing myself 5 and 6 times daily and getting very frustrated when the scale moves up and down. I know that our bodies can fluctuate 5 - 10 pounds daily which is why it's important to weigh yourself at the same time each time. The scale really only gives you a snap shot moment of reality, but I can't seem to stop. I'm driving myself crazy. So. Here's two new goals for now, Weigh in ONLY once daily if that often (I'd prefer to weigh in only once per week. I tend to stay more sane that way.) and go for a walk today. My son just woke up, so the walk starts as soon as I finish a couple of other things.
