Day 5 of 135

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Had a busy day with the family. Got the kids ready for camp tomorrow, then went to a Nationals game (they won) and then dinner with my in-laws to celebrate my birthday shich is next week. We went to Korean BBQ which I really love but I ate in moderation and enjoyed it - lots of vegetables and meat - it was yummy. And one bite of a piece of chocolate cake - the kids finished it off. Overall a good day and I was glad that I exercised this morning before it got busy. Tomorrow I will get more back on track with more consistent exercise and eating.

    Oh and I definitely wanted to and could have eaten that whole piece of cake and much more - it took a ton of resolve. Before I wold have said, well we are celebrating my birthday - why not? But not this time. Buttonpopper - I have been there MANY times

    Unfortunately my little one had a VERY difficult time going to camp this morning - crying/screaming/begging not to go and clinging - it was very hard for me but especially hard for him. And this is a camp that he has been to and loved last year - cried the last day. He just has so much anxiety - it's tough to see. Hopefully he is doing better.

    Wow, only one bite of a piece of chocolate cake?! I don't think I've ever accomplished anything like that. With me, it's always been all or nothing! Whenever I see home videos from when my children were small, and I see the big birthday cake on the table, with only a small part having been served (maybe one-fourth), I heave a big sigh because I know what happened to the other three-fourths after the party was over! So I admire your motivation and self-control. You're already on Day 5! Keep it up!
