I have been writing as I go on what amounts to post it notes but on my phone.
I kept wanting to update this journal with those notes but it's just not going to happen.
Most recently I have been on vacation and for each spot I ate, I tried in advance to figure my food plan, which I am encouraged I did fairly well on, I called in advance for suggestions and questions, looked online at menus and really went after sticking as best I can to my numbers, which for me only really doing spark for 2 weeks was a challenge, I did do well though, I could not be happier with myself.
...my oops was I committed with friends to one meal of whatever and I have a couple of trigger items that I do not have discipline on stopping on, I should have enjoyed the meal without the item, even requesting it be removed from me and I failed on the free meal I gave myself. (I started off okay, however as we sat there socializing and this food staring at me, I justified that I gave myself this meal...I knew me enough to know this item did not need to be a part of the meal, and I blew it..too much of a 'good thing' eaten).
hard day today, challenging trying to get back into eating routine after vacation, even with the mostly wise picks.
I am grateful that I did try to eat well on vacation, however the time of when I ate was different and I was busy being active.
Today I am not busy, it's too hot (weather) to really become busy, and I feel the need to fill the time with food.
I will conquer me!
I am conquering me as typically I would be frozen until I did the other journal days, however my progress is to move on and keep pressing.
I am conquering me, it's not easy, it's day to day...but I love it!
