Reflections on an old me
Friday, September 07, 2012
So lets call today what it was.... Today sucked, work was stressful, the customers were extra cranky today and with having the baby I've missed a couple days of work (to be expected) and its put my attendance an issue. Everyday I go into work really worried about my job and expecting that to be the day that I am told "we thank you for the work, but don't come back".
However, the last week and a half I have really been doing an INCREDIBLE job at planning and packing my meals for the day. I have been packing lunch and 2 snacks when i leave after making a homemade breakfast and then coming home and cooking dinner.
Then this past wednesday I started the body by vi shakes and have been doing amazing on them, but literally I am guzzling milk and water with this challenge. So fast forward to today. Today after work I had to pick up some more milk for my shakes, I knew i needed one tonight and didn't have enough milk to make the shake. So tonight after a CRAPPY day of work and a snack that wasn't very filling (1/4 cup of sunflower seeds didn't go very far) I was STARVING as I found myself walking through the grocery store. I went into the grocery store in order to get milk, baking soda, and baking powder. I left the store with milk, baking soda, baking powder, and brown rice. This is HUGE for me, as the grocery store was somewhere that if i went there hungry I ALWAYS came home with a bunch of junk and a bunch of CRAP.
So victory number 1, I got only what I went into the store to get...
go me! But I am still starving at this point, and although I drive this same route EVERYDAY I never realized how many fast food restaurants I drive past. I drove past EVERY single one came home and made dinner!
That was a HUGE victory for me! Old me would have stopped at probably one or two of those fast food restaurants while eating the crap I got that the grocery store!
BUT this time this lifestyle change is for real, this life is MINE and I will be living it..
Lookout world, I am coming for you.
