This Chapter shows some progress, albeit very slow. My weeks are mixed: some stellar On Plan days, and some days that are within calorie range, but on the high side from making some poor food choices during the evening, and here and there a day Off Plan.
I've become complacent. Is it winter season doldrums? Likely. But, no matter.
With the Winter Challenge coming to a close in just 3 short weeks, I feel like I need to ramp up my Plan, with some meaningful actions. Inside, I sigh, with what needs to be done. It is better for me to just concentrate on this day of opportunity I have before me, and act on my commitment, and push through the day. If I can take care of today as I should, tomorrow will take care of itself.
As an aside, I've been enjoying time with my new grand, now 5 months old, who I babysit 3 days a week. The other 2 days, I have one of my other grands, now 6, for after school care. I'll see them both at my niece's daugter's birthday party today, and then take the 6 year old grand home with me for a sleepover.
I'll need to be mindful of my Food Plan, and stay away from the birthday cake today. Cake frosting can totally trash the day's total calories. I know I'm not capable of "a little" so best to stay away from it in total.
Family time today.

I've been selling myself short, and letting myself off the hook. I will replace complacency with greater expectation for myself. And how about you? What do you want for yourself? What are you willing to do for it?
Wishing you an awesome day!
