Day 6 a Little Late
WOW, what a “hungry day” yesterday was. I could have planned a little better as I was out all day at a client site, in meetings and then a doctors appointment. I think it was the meetings that killed me, I was in two back to back pretty much 9-12:30PM. I got SO hungry, My banana in the car on the way really didn’t hold me over. Normally when I know I’m going to have a long morning I eat something like Grapenuts, they stick with me longer. But yesterday our morning was rushed a bit and the toddler and I didn’t have time for our customary sit down breakfast. I did grab everything portable that I could, running out the door. Can you tell by my food journal? lol
Just to add to my unpreparedness they had doughnuts and bagels in the break room. I wasn’t that tempted to be honest, that’s what happens when I’m in the right mental state and feeling in control of my food choices AND that’s what happens when I buckle down and go into lose mode while maintaining. (What I’m doing now) It’s gives me that extra shot of accountability and reminds me how I reached my goals in the first place. One day at a time and being honest with myself.
So today is my last day food journaling for a bit. We’re heading to the beach for our yearly shore trip. I can’t wait! I have made the decision NOT to being the laptop. I can’t believe I just said that but it’s true, no laptop for a WEEK! No email, no clients, no comments, no twitter, wow, I think I’m going to go through withdrawal. :~) But I think it’s important that have this week with just my family and no distractions. Plus if I want to stay sane, I think I need one “disconnected” week at least once a year.
I do plan to record one last video to answer some “Ask Roni” questions before I leave. It may be long as I attempt to at least catch up to the current month with questions. Hopefully I get that up tonight.
OK, one more thing before I go. No one called me on this but I missed my weigh in on Wednesday! I totally forgot until it was too late (no more meetings) and then I haven’t had time to make it up. I’m not stressing. The further I go on this journey the less the scale matters as much. For my new readers I wrote about my scale habits which may shed some light on what I’m talking about it.
You may think skipping the weigh in is a way to not “face it” but I’m in such a good place right now I almost feel like i don’t need it. I haven’t even hoped on the home scale in week. It’s not about that number for me anymore. It’s about balance, good choices and fitness. I will get back to Weight Watchers for an official Weigh in when I get back from the beach though. If, for anything, statistical purposes and to update my weight progress age and to satisfy my OCD tendencies. LOL
I’ll post a week in loss mode wrap up tonight. Until then!
