Here’s what’s been happening with me lately…
Thumbs up: Eating at the table has been going well. I plan to continue this for all my snacking.
Thumbs down: I not only opened a new jar of peanut butter, but I finished it off already. Yes, there was a little bit of overeating with a spoon involved.
Thumbs up: I’m enjoying having my oldest home from school for a little while. He drove 1200 miles by himself without incident. Thumbs way up!
Thumbs down: I had a little fling with a box of my husband’s whole grain cereal one night. Why? Beats me. Yes, I ate it at the table. But, it had added sugar (even if it pretended not to by calling it something else) and I ate more than one serving and I was not hungry at the time. Bad, bad, and bad.
Thumbs sideways: My younger son started his senior year of high school last week – the beginning of the end. He managed to wake himself up on time so far everyday:)
Thumbs down: I’ve been experiencing a bit of a brain freeze lately. My creative mojo seems to have left the building with my dieting mojo. I wonder if they are hanging out together somewhere with the socks that went missing from the laundry.
Thumbs dowwwwwnnnn: I went to a birthday party this weekend. And party seemed to be happening in my mouth! I ate a lot of things I should not have eaten. ‘Nuff said.
Thumb wrestling: My weight is up and down and up and down. Oh yeah… kinda like a yo-yo! I seem to be doing well with eating and exercise five or six days a week; but the other day or two is killing me. Enough monkeying around Karen!
My goals for the week:
- Continue eating snacks at the table.
- Do NOT overeat!
- Stay on plan for every snack and every meal with the one possible exception of dinner out with my son before he heads back to school.
What’s going on with you?
