Week in review 6/30/2016

Thursday, June 30, 2016

So much joy this week but so many temptations. My oldest son and his girlfriend flew into town yesterday, my stepson gets in tonight along with two of my sons best friends. The food in the house right now is overwhelming. This could not be happening at the worst time for me since I am hormonal and craving. My weight loss journey pretty much came to a full stop this week. Exercise is going great, despite the food issues, but you can't out run your diet. The feelings of failure were a bit overwhelming. I am okay now but I have beaten myself up all week anytime I ate something that I thought I shouldn't. I have to learn that moderation is key and some weeks will be harder than others but that is okay. Just jump back on.

I am surprised how much I get derailed. If I am not perfect I think everything is going to hell and I will not overcome it. That couldn't be further from the truth, it is okay to get derailed as long as you get back on track. Staying conscious I think is what matters. This is a lifestyle change, it isn't going to happen overnight.

In terms of getting things done, things are a bit slow. We ran into several snags and I have miles of paperwork I am trying to get through. I am just plugging a long in all areas of my life.

This week: I will keep tracking and logging water, try to increase my fruits and vegetables. Try to eliminate nighttime eating past nine every night. Mentally prepare myself for all the parties I have this week.

    Your honesty with yourself, and your mindfulness to what is happening are going to get you through this rough patch.

    A wise sparkfriend pointed out that nothing tastes as good as the first two bites. That will be my mantra as I navigate my first party since changing my eating habits this Monday. I also offered to bring roasted red pepper hummus and veggies (the recipe is host tested and approved). I'll pick up some crackers or pita chips to go with it for the party goers that aren't watching their weight.

    Don't let that bully bash you when you aren't perfect. Treat yourself at least as well as you would treat someone you love.

    The failure to be perfect is something I struggle with. I really have a hard time moving on from a bad choice to not make the day worse. Sounds like you have good goals this week. Good luck!
