Interesting weekend....

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I went back to my childhood home this weekend for a visit with my family. Could I be anymore self-aware?! It was remarkable to see all the bad habits I'd been raised with and how many changes I've made. They're definitely adding up! :)
I was able to eat smaller portions and exercise even though it seemed to make my family upset.
Small victories! It made me aware that I don't want to go back!
It was incredibly fun to run past my old elementary school with my kids in tow (on their bikes) and check out the old neighborhood. In past visits we would spend so much time sitting and talking and EATING! What a rut!
Coming home my husband commented on how different I am and how much he notices and appreciates the changes I've made. So even though the number on the scale and tape measure are no different this morning, I'm a happy woman!

    It is hard to keep up with healthy habits when getting together with family! I will admit that I am not very good at it. Great job staying strong!
