Seriously Sunday

There is a hashtag that trends on all forms of social media #teacherslife! that tags pictures of beaches, cocktails, and elaborate holiday vacations I don’t know who those teachers are, I suspect those teachers are married to the people financing all that fun. My featured image depicts my version of #teacherslife! Yeah… Sunday nights are for shoring up all the work that I took home from last week.

Aside from the massive amount of planning work I have to do, you’ll also notice that I have a healthy 2-point snack that I am munching before dinner. This is the resulting action when a “why” is aligned with one’s intentions. You might be thinking, “Well, DUH, Jenn.” I am writing this more as a callout to myself. I need reminding. I need to pause and think, “This is a good choice, this is something you are doing to help yourself feel better.” Or… “You are doing yourself a kindness right now.”

The good news, today was easier than yesterday. I tracked everything I ate, and I’m ok with estimating the foods that are harder to know the points values of. I am doing my part over here. But before I sign off, I just have to say, if you are on a weight loss journey like me, I have hands-down respect for you. It’s not easy, and it takes a lot of time and effort to do this. Your brain will want to take shortcuts, and check out because the brain does its best to be efficient and conserve energy. But the heart will give all that it has to keep it going. This is dedicated to you readers, and as my WW leader, Lisa would recommend, you should dance when you hear it…
