Exhaustion…

I did something pretty stressful tonight. It went well, and now I am just bone tired. I came home ate a bunch of pistachios, and cheese-it mix and I was not mindful about it. The trouble began when I forgot my lunch at home this morning. I only got back home after 9:30 pm and so next time I have to be more careful to make sure my lunch gets out the door with me.

Thank you to my friends who reached out and sent me some words of encouragement. I am deeply appreciative of your kind gestures. You helped me, thank you.

Day Three Hundred Ninety…

I went to work, and then I went to the library and worked until 9:00 pm. I came home and worked for another half hour. Then I ate salad with grilled chicken on top and a piece of Italian bread.  After that, I ate an eight-point dessert.

As I reflect on today, all I can write is that I have to continue to be mindful about my choices and my reasons for eating. Especially when I am under so much stress.  I have to keep it all in context. I know that this is a temporary situation and all I have to do is to keep working and eventually, I will get through this difficult time.

I know I can do this. Thank you for reading.

Day Three Hundred Sixty-Five…

It is late, so (again) this has to be a short post. Today was busy and I am tired. I worked all day, cooked dinner, worked all evening. I was careful to eat mindfully and dinner was very delicious. We had roasted potatoes with turkey sausage. No gobbling food down and then looking for something else. That’s an NSV because when I work under stress like this, I can be vulnerable to unconscious eating.

Weight loss has been such a big priority for me over this past year. I’m almost at my goal weight.  I’m going to stay positive and keep up my momentum and motivation. If you are reading this send me your good thoughts. Thank you for reading.
