In need of a little patience
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
I need a little patience today. I gained – not a lot and it could be just water weight or the fact that my floors are not level in this apartment (seriously nothing is level here - I swear sometimes it’s like living in a little crooked house) but nevertheless I gained. Granted I haven't been working out as much as I should but I was on track for calories, every mouth full has been tracked so I’m a little discouraged and trying really hard not to let that discouragement put me in a bad place for this week.
I’ve been a little stressed out because I have an exam on Saturday plus I should find out soon if I’ve been accepted into my program at school for the fall. I could really use a mental heath day from work but I just can’t afford it right now.
The plan today is to stick to the plan, make the meals I had already picked out and tracked and try and muster up a positive attitude. I knew going in that there would be weeks like this but that doesn’t make this any easier to deal with.
On a happier note, we got a new kitchen table over the weekend and a new pantry. When David’s mom gets home from her trip she is going to make use some new place mats for the table and it’s actually starting to look like a kitchen. We have recently started putting up more pictures and posters as well (only took up 6 years). I guess as I’m getting older I like the apartment to look more homey – not that batman posters and framed video game maps would be homey to most but it feels right for us.
