SO not looking forward to Monday!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Ugh, why do weekends go by so fast??? I am not ready to go back to work :( We're expecting the Department of Health any day now for our state survey and it's making everyone at work incredibly tense. It's not a pleasant atmosphere. I wish they would just hurry up and get it over with. Truthfully, I'm a little nervous. I know that I do my job well but I'm always afraid of messing something up and getting us a deficiency. Granted, nothing I could do could bring about an "IJ" (Immediate Jeopardy) thanks to being in the social work department. The nursing aspect on one of my units is hot mess and I know it's not going to be pretty. Oh well, what can you do?

My dinner out last night was fun but I didn't do great food-wise. Well, actually, the only bad thing I had was part of a brownie sundae, but I'm getting my period this week and had a wicked craving. I did, however, indulge in several glasses of Cabernet. It was a lot of fun though, definitely well worth the extra calories. I'm learning to be kinder to myself when I make a less-than-perfect choice. And that's exactly what last night was...a choice. I made the conscious decision to eat what I ate, drink what I drank. It wasn't mindless eating in front of the tv and I wasn't eating my emotions.

My trainer did a KILLER workout with me this morning. She guesses that I burned at least 700 calories in the hour we were training. I got to sweat out the booze from last night :)

Time to start unwinding...put away laundry, cue up movie for 4 am workout, maybe pop a Tylenol PM...

I'm sure I'll write more tomorrow. Hope everyone has a good (and fast) Monday!

    I'm on board with your attitude. It's different making the "wrong" choice because you're in control rather than letting emotions take control over it. One treat isn't going to derail all of your progress. And indulging on a somewhat regular basis won't either the difference is that it might take a little longer to get to our goals.

    The point of all of this is to be happy. Not deprive ourselves. We've been depriving long enough with the relationships we just got out of.

    I'm soo glad your spirit is lifting. :)

    Btw did you have that conversation with your friend at dinner? How did she respond?
