Happy news taken advantage of...

Weigh-in was yesterday and I was down 3.6 pounds! How cool? It felt great, but there's such a long way to go which is the ONLY reason why I could have possibly decided to eat the day away. Seriously. I consumed over 60 points worth of food yesterday - and yes, I tracked them ALL!

Today, the eating is right back on track but I woke up in a terrible mood. I texted my hubby that I needed a pep talk - and I know I was just generally dragging. It has been a very hard week at work, and I might have eaten a bunch of snacks yesterday thinking, "It's been a hard week...what the hell..." I even questioned myself as I was eating - Do you really want that? And I replied, "Yes - I do!" Then when I asked why to myself, I replied, "Because I like it! It tastes good..." Ugh ---

I think the good news might be that I'm having these conversations with myself and reflecting. I had a conversation with a student today about how much I wish I would have had conversations like that with myself year and years ago. The big thing is, I mustn't be upset and uptight about A) my bad day and B) my resentment of not getting my sh-t together sooner.

  1. It's always good to learn to reflect about our actions and why we do certain things. Don't be too hard on yourself. Slow and steady is the way to go.
