Mind Games

Monday, February 25, 2013

So. Today has been a very interesting day. First with the obvious of my fiance leaving on deployment today, then with the crazy-stress food cravings! My mind has just been a crazy roller coaster all day! I'm so proud of myself for sticking to my guns on my calorie limits! I still went over, but not by as much as I typically would! That's pretty good when you're dealing with the crazy-stress of a first-time deployment! I'll admit, I'm still craving some spinach dip and chips, but who knows! Maybe I'll get to eat some tomorrow! All depends on what that horrible cafeteria serves. Really the cafeteria isn't so bad, but it's all about defeating the mind games. It's intentionally avoiding the greasy pizza buffet at lunch and going for a salad, or avoiding that crazy-high calorie/carb-filled pasta and going for the baked chicken. It's all about defeating the mind games. Crazy-stress is going to pop up in life in all sorts of scenarios and situations. But if you know how to beat the mind games, then you're as good as gold. Thanks for all the support as of late, and keep posted!

    You can do this! We live in a real world where there is stress and our options are sometimes less than ideal, but as long as you keep making the best choice possible, you'll succeed in your goals!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon I can not imagine the difficulty of deployment....I have now been married for 40 years and have never been separated longer than a week.

    Cafeteria access IS scary to me..I do much better eating at home where I control what is purchased and brought into the house.
