Veering off the Beaten Path/ Need to keep it on the Road

Sunday, October 05, 2008

I am not sure what's happening with me lately, but for about the last week and a half, I have been veering off my healthy path somewhat. I have been having a hard time staying within my calorie range and I even have gone over a few times. I have been getting hungry later in the evening and craving sweets and or salty things that I know aren't very nutritious. And I don't seem to have the willpower to stop myself from eating them.
I believe that part of this new problem has been working part time after not working for so long. It has been an adjustment getting used to it and it's causing me some stress. When I accepted the job, I thought I would be given, at least that was the impression, more of a weekly work schedule, but so far they only schedule me a couple of days each week and then they call me the night before unscheduled days to see if I can work that next day. While that might work for young singles or empty nesters, it's not too great when trying to run a household with hubby and school age kids. Especially since I plan appointments, errands, household chores, etc. on my unscheduled days.
I have also been dealing with a fall cold, which has left me rundown and tired.
I told myself that today I will get back on track and not let this get out of control. I have worked too hard to throw it all away. I know I am emotionally eating and it's not worth the price.

Tomorrow is a new week and I WILL get back on my healthy path.

    The last sentence of this post is the way I always think of it. Each day is a brand new day. No matter what you do today, you have to get up tomorrow and make the most of it.

    Keep smiling, keep your mind on the goal, and just keep pushing forward.
