Pawse week 9 ?

Thursday, July 16, 2015

I think that it's week 9 :)

Ponder and reflect
I know what to do.. but at the times that I mess it up the "rules" don't matter or make sense at all.. and then afterwards it's like, "why did I do that?"

I am reading some meditations and I think they are helping some.. .. I have almost given up so many times.. but I tell myself to just keep going.. to finish this..and that even if I'm not where I want to be if I give up I will lose the progress I have made.. and that does matter!

One of the keys is making my food.. finding the yummy recipes and making them! they taste so much better then the food we end up picking up somewhere they really do!

I have had several stressors that I won't post about.. except one maybe at that is my husband was laid off 2 weeks ago .. he has lots of interviews and they say they will let him know but we're staying waiting.. and he keeps applying and being asked to apply and do interviews so that's good..

Looking ahead
The stress from the job will continue.. I need to focus meditate and try to make sense of the thoughts in my head when they tell me that eating what I want does not mean I will gain weight .. because it does

tomorrow is one of my older daughters birthdays.. she is eating healthy and so I will be taking her a watermelon with candles for her birthday.

I have a children's activity on Saturday that I am partly in charge of.. I will stay busy and clean up afterwards avoiding the "treats" we will be having the small cups of ice cream and I don't like my ice cream melty so I will be sure to clean up as much as possible before I enter the "treat" area.. I know I will also be offered the left overs since I have so many children but I will work on how I will say no between now and then.

My grandsons birthday is Monday.. his mama (my daughter) is also a healthy eater (she has been in those muscle fitness competitions) and so I know whatever she has will be clean and healthy even if it is a cake .. so I will have a small piece of whatever she is serving and I plan to track it

I'm going to stay active.. would love to get 250 minutes a day although that would not be so good to my family.. so I will be working towards that each day except Sunday.. as much as I can but keeping my life with my family in balance with my active goals

    I can relate to what you said about the rules not mattering when you're in that mode, and then always regretting it afterwards. It is frustrating. I'm trying to think about how I will feel afterwards when I'm in that moment. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

    Way to go planning ahead for your special events this week. I think that is the way to succeed! Hope you have an awesome week! emoticon

    It's great you have healthy eaters in your family. It makes a big difference. Great plan for dealing with the ice cream. emoticon
