Things I am working on

Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Getting my food logged in every day.
Not tasting while I prepare food.
Not running to the jars of nuts I keep in the pantry when I feel ravenous or pick-ish. I logged in what I ate in cashews one day, and it was frightening. Logging in makes it more real.
Trying to find and use good vegan recipes.
Managing stress. Working on resolving things I let bug me.
Get done some of the things I let go undone.
Pace myself at work and don't allow the stress to build. And if it does, find ways to unload it.
Drinking more water.
Begin exercising again.
Learn how to treat myself with compassion. For example, I had an appointment for a physical at 5:15 pm tonight, which I cancelled. I have a long day, then have to get home to make sure we have dinner and lunch for the next day. I get up early and start work early. I can reschedule for an afternoon and take the time off. I am allowed to have time off.

(Not doing too well managing the stress). But I will keep trying.

    emoticon I like that you are going to treat yourself with compassion! That should be at the top of the list.

    The stress, yeah me too. I am also still working on it.

    Holy cats, that is quite a list. May I also suggest that you consider putting the compassion piece at the very top?
    Especially as you're taking on so much...

    Yay for taking care of your needs and postponing your physical. I totally hear you about cashews. What to do, when they're also do good for us? I weigh an ounce of them into a small cup. Or put an ounce of walnuts into oats in the morning. Or add them to popcorn.

    What are you snacking on instead and what vegan recipes have you liked? Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Treating yourself with love and honor and compassion is the very BEST thing you can do for yourself.
    All of the other stuff will follow.

    Isn't it insane how delicious and calorie dense nuts are?

    Have a good week ahead!!

    Consistency is the key. Keep at it. Every day will not be perfect and that's ok.
