Roller coaster on the scale and roller coaster emotions.
Scale is up 3 pounds, but let's review last week: Chinese food for lunch put me wayyyyy over limit, ate at McDonald's for breakfast 2 x over the weekend before I looked it up....Ahem. Yes, That would be why the scale is up 3 pounds I'm pretty sure. A week of being either even with my calorie burn or above it. On that Chinese food day? WAY above what I burned.
So, I'm just figuring it was a week of lessons on calories and tracking and I know it will come back off with a little more work and attention.
The emotional rollercoaster would be dealing with my feelings on my daughter's alcoholism, the fact her father is blessing us all with his presence at her wedding in September and how that is making another daughter flip out and my son flip out because they refuse to have anything to do with him because of his abuse/alcoholism in their childhood, and worrying about the last child who keeps telling everyone "it will be okay! we'll all be fine!!" in classic fix-it mode.
So much stress over alcoholics and family issues, I took myself to an Al-Anon meeting last night. I'm glad I went.
I still seem to be on the emotional rollercoaster, but ...I have things to think about now besides that lovely cycle of "what if what if what if?????"
20 min of Zumba for Wii this morning = 2500 steps. My walking in the morning has been a little lazy and I told myself yesterday, Look - either you walk or you zumba. I get more bang for my buck step-wise with zumba, so today, zumba it was. I can tell, however, that I need to get outside - I need that.
That's it. Happy Tuesday Folks!
