Plan A should have been Plan B...

When I started to write this blog, I started to describe ever incident that has occurred this week that kept me derailed from my program. I outlined in detail the weather forecast for ice and how I bought into it, thinking we'd be iced in. I talked about the 3 am wake-up call from my toddler the night before my regular day back to work. And I was about to go into detail about many other little hiccups to my week. Then I hit the backspace key....for a long time.
Because in truth, it doesn't matter! Yup, it's been a bad week. I've tried to get back into my routine, and life is making it hard. Truth is...life is hard! We're in a crazy time right now - a toddler, a 6 year old, a full time job that is evolving into something new. There are always going to be holidays, weather issues, and things that happen that are completely out of my control. So now what?
I need to learn from this. Just like my job, I need to look at the problem and figure out a way to keep it from happening again. Here are my initial thoughts:
- Keep some easy to grab lunches ready - frozen dinners, soups, etc. (make sure they are things I really like, or a lunch out will be too tempting)
- No matter what, set the alarm for my normal workout time, and get up!
- Keep my goal in front of me at all times...finish my vision collage so that when times are tough and I want to grab some chips, I'll remember my goal a pick up an apple instead.
So, now I'm off to eat my soup and some cheese and crackers for lunch.
I can do this!!!
