I've been slowly making baby steps and getting control again. The weekend was hard, I caved a few times but definitely ate less than I usually would have. Today, Monday, felt like a fresh start. So far, today has been great. I ate some low cal soup and green tea for breakfast. Had a small snack of grapes and am going to have a salad for lunch. Dinner is gonna be lean turkey meat spaghetti. I'd like to eventually replace the noodles with spaghetti squash but I'm not quite there yet.
I have to admit, I'm STARVING.
I remember there is a point where you aren't as hungry anymore but I'm still in the beginning and the hunger pangs are awful.
Also, last night I woke up feeling super guilty. I had this horrible pain in my stomach, those guilt pangs. I kept thinking how much I've messed up this year. I was practically at maintenance again and now here I am back where I started....except now there's a pandemic and I'm triple stressed.
The kids started virtual school today. It's nice that now the teachers have a bit more structure compared to back in March. I was literally their teacher then and forcing them to do work and helping them to work. Now, they have a points system that let's them know what needs to be done and when without me harping on them.
My baby is growing every day. She will be 2 in December! Time is flying!
She's having issues with talking, but we did visit the doc about it. Dr. thinks she's fine, just taking her time. Especially since she's learning Spanish too. Today I asked her if she wanted to watch a show and she said "noooooo....don't want"
It was kind of muffled words but I totally heard it. She was mad but it almost made me laugh cuz I wasn't expecting it but was so proud too.
Anyways, today was a good day so I'm marking the calendar as a success!
Happy Motivating Monday!
view on my walk, worth it!
