It's been another busy week in the crisis unit and I'm just now getting to around to posting my weigh in for Tuesday.
I have to tell you that I am so tired right now that it took me 7 minutes to figure out that I gained 2 pounds from last week. It's like I've never used a freakin calculator before!
So, yeah. I gained 2 pounds.
I'm frustrated with that but I'm not surprised. While I ate semi-well and exercised two days, I did have a couple really off-track days. I also may or may not have had a blizzard. Okay, I had two.
In my defense, I've been kinda on the verge of a nervous breakdown for the past few days, so I'm cutting myself some slack.
Not too much slack. I'm getting back on track and that's that.
Enough horsing around.
Enough with the negativity. I'd like to take a minute and talk about what I think I'm doing well.
*Water - I drink my servings of water every day and more, especially when I'm at work. I typically use Crystal Light or some sort of 0 calorie water mix in and that really helps.
*Satisfaction - I stop eating when I am full. Once I reach that point where I feel like I'm just stuffing it in, I stop.
*Portions - My scale has become my friend. The kitchen scale, that is. I weigh out all my snacks, meats, etc.
*Honesty - I'm not ashamed of the fact that I'm trying to lose weight. I talk openly about what I'm doing or not doing so well. Some people don't want to hear it, but tough cookies! If I feel like telling that lady in the canned fruit aisle about how many points I have left, dammit I will (that may be an exaggeration, but you get the point)!
*Choices - I am constantly aware of what I'm eating. It affects my choices whenever and wherever I eat. While I don't always make the best choice (blizzards are the devil, btw), I am aware.
So, I may be struggling to get where I want to be, but the changes are there. I'm doing the right things even when I don't realize it.
Goals for this week are the same as always:
Stick to it!
So, what are you doing well on this journey?
I'd love for you to share!
