Daily Wrap-Up: Sunday August 19, 2012

In Daily Wrap-Up on August 20, 2012 at 2:59 am

Here’s how I think I did today on the traditional grading scale of A-F:

Sleep: A:  Slept when baby slept.  Going to bed early.

Water: A:  Drank at least 8 glasses.

Food: B:  Skipped church coffee hour.  Snacked on 50%serving of almonds and apricots but 100%serving of dark choc covered acai berries.  At lunch had 100% serving of chips (but normally would have 200%!!!)  50% serving of ice cream.  Stressed out and didn’t want to cook.  Had pizza for dinner.  A small miracle occured: I only had two pizzas and they were small slices!!!  I am noticing that I did have a fair amount of junk food today however, and that doesn’t feel great.

Exercise: B:   Walk with hubby and baby.

Vitamins: A:  Will take tonight

Journaling: C:  Forgot this morning.  Will do tonight.

Final Thought of the Day:  I remember that when I lost the 100lbs before it was because of consistency that was reinforced by ample support.  I had plenty of people to call if I wanted to eat my meal too early, eat too much of something, eat something I shouldn’t, etc.  I feel pretty alone in this struggle (since hubby doesn’t have a weight problem).  I know many of my friends are struggling with weight issues too but at the age of 34 it doesn’t seem appropriate to call a friend and whine about how you want more pizza…  I am going to continue to think about how, in the spur of the moment of a craving, I can talk myself through it like a friend would…

How did you do today with your healthy living?  I hope you are kind to yourself, no matter what.  Life is too precious to spend it living in regret and self-loathing.

Thanks for reading this and I wish you much luck on your own healthy journey!
