Monday, May 22, 2017
It was quite a weekend. I have to say, as far as keeping my eye on my goals, it was a mixed bag. Except for yesterday, I kept my eating under control in some situations that normally would have me in a virtual food free for all. On Saturday, my husband and I had lunch with some old friends, and I made good choices at the restaurant (a veggie burger and some sweet potato fries) and then later, went to my aunt's, who had all of our out of town relatives over for dinner, and all I had were a few tortilla chips and some salsa, and then I allowed myself to have a small scoop of chocolate chip ice cream, sort of as dessert from our lunch out. But the timing was such that I had very little to eat the whole day, and was perfectly okay with that.
Yesterday, I did okay, but I did eat a bit more than I should have, and more than I have in quite a while. I really paid the price last night, though, as I was lying in bed and my stomach really bothered me and I had terrible heartburn, so I had to get up and take some Tums to settle my belly down. Even though that was not good, what I do think is good is that I don't want to feel that way anymore, and my body doesn't want to either.
As for my overall goals, I will report my yesterday progress:
1. commit to eating my planned meals and snacks, and no more - not so good, but definitely feel back on track today, and not that old "once you break the good eating, it's all downhill from here" feeling.
2. do one seated workout of the several I have found on SP daily - I had loads going on, didn't get anything done
3. set aside 15 minutes in the middle of every day, just after lunch - I'll call this a check
4. Blog- not since Friday, but here I am today, so that's okay too.
Tomorrow I have my pre-surgical physical. Whenever you're going to be poked and prodded, you never know what they're going to find, so let's hope it's all okay.
