SO much going on!!!
Monday, November 26, 2012
it seems like forever since I have blogged. It has been a while since I have tracked my food too. I have so much going on. My mom was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago and last Wednesday had part of her lung removed. Things have been stressful to say the least. My mom is coming home from the hospital today and we have a long road of recovery ahead but I am hopeful and praying daily. I am proud of how I decided to handle this, instead of stuffing my feelings or eating them, I have gone in to this knowing this will be stressful and decided to not beat myself up. I set realistic goals. I know that my workout routines will be fewer, although not totally gone. I know that eating schedule will be hectic but I choose how much to eat. I am happy to say that I have gotten through this past month of stress without gaining any weight. I didn't lose any, but most importantly I didn't gain. I gave myself a 5lb cushion , knowing that sometimes i will be up a little and that is ok. I have been very mindful of my eating but not stressing myself out, I track when I can, although I really want to track more and have made it a goal to do this more since I know how much it keeps me on track. I weigh weekly no matter what so I can keep my week on track as much as possible. I am very proud of the way I am handling stress this time. I am determined not to let it be an excuse not to take care of me.
