trying to stay focused today

Monday, February 17, 2014

Well , this was not a good weekend for me. I think it started on Valentine's day with going out to eat. I was prepared to be able to eat something a little more special than what I would usually order, but ended up getting a a chicken breast and broccoli. So when I got home, I began my little pity party again and ate without sitting at the table. I think I didn't go too crazy.

Then Saturday we went to the Auto Show. Again, I was prepared with my food and brought a healthy lunch along with me. Again when we got home, I was feeling deprived. I ate more than I knew I should have.

Sunday, we had guests for dinner. I had planned one eating just a small amount of the meat dish I prepared and fill my plate with salad, but I caved in again!

So today, I am getting back my focus again. I am doing well so far today. Sitting at the table is something I will have to continue to work on. I have been drinking plenty and eating lots of vegetables. Supper will be a big salad with some turkey added for protein. I must and wil persevere.

    You're doing great! I'm sure we all have days when we just are't tempted to eat anything other than those meals we've planned, and I KNOW we all have days where everything goes pear-shaped and it's all we can do to try not to have too big a calorie blow-out. That's normal. But... the great thing is that you know where you went wrong, and you are taking steps to get back on track. That's the great thing, and I wish you well with it. emoticon

    I started off yesterday ok, but within a few hours was feeling really blahh, no reason why, just felt really exhausted and wanted to doze in my chair on and off all day. No dog walk, no exercise, but I did manage to eat within my range which I guess was somethng. Trying to catch up on all yesterday's leftovers plus today's tasks and still not feeling 100%. I am DEFINITELY taking my poor dogs for a nice long walk today, which may just be what I need to turn my day into something much more positive.
