I checked in two weeks ago and at that time I was really plugging along nicely. The week after that was still good. However, this past week I would say I got an F. I still like to think about my life in grades. I always HAD to have an A until college. At that point in time, I was even satisfied with B's but an F. An F was like a bad word that was NOT part of my vocabulary. I do not like F's, STILL!!
I need to figure out why this last week has been harder than the rest of this month. I am not really 100% sure. I think the biggest change was that I stopped being PRESENT. I started letting my stresses get to me. When I do this, I eat. I know a lot of us do this but obviously this is not going to help me (or any of us) achieve goals.
I had a migraine a few days last week too. You know what? I am going to not beat myself up over one week. There are 48 more weeks this year and that's a lot. One pound a week would be 48 pounds; that's a ton and more than my weight loss goal so what's one week. Nothing - it's nothing!
This week I am going to try to do a better job of being present; of thinking about my choices; of not indulging in the evening when I want ice cream or chocolate.
