That's how I shut down early at work today. It has been a hard, long week! I have earned my keep. I have worked like a farm animal and not a cute little chicken or duck! I worked like a horse or donkey. I don't normally punch a clock but today it's a wrap
I am gonna drink my tea, read, and relax. I can't remember a week this stressful. I went through TWO boxes of low-fat ice cream bars and I don't even know how many bags of popcorn I shoveled in my face the last few nights. I always track my food- I even save wrappers if I need to track in the morning. I didn't even bother. I just tossed the evidence in the trash, jumped on the scale and tried again every morning.
The nutritionist thinks I am simply hungry. My weight has been up and down within 1 -2 lbs. One night, I caught myself trying to stay up on Spark and I shut it down. I remind myself the point of all these activities is to lead a healthier lifestyle. Staying up on the computer knowing it leads me to night graze, defeats the purpose. I just have to remain laser-focused on my goals. Who's a GOAL-GETTER? ME! I will speak kindly to myself and be patient. This is just a stressful period and that leads me to EAT. I am going to keep showing up, working out and praying every morning that I have enough strength to make better choices all day.
I am sending you only the most positive vibes and I look forward to catching up with you this weekend! XOXO
