I'm taking a much needed vacation day tomorrow to do a bunch of yard work. at 6:30PM I still had hours of work to do in the office, but I told myself I had done enough; the work will be there when I get back on Monday. I went home feeling like I won. It might not have been the best I've done with eating this week, but it was as good as I could muster. With no pressure tomorrow at work I feel like I can take another step and have a good eating day. I already talked about guy's night on Saturday so I'll probably indulge a little, but then I have Sunday to take another step back toward my healthy lifestyle.
One day at a time, one step at a time. I don't have to just flick the switch and try to fix everything at once. It's truly a different way of looking at life in general. Even my best friend told me this week that he sees a change in me. I didn't spiral out of control last weekend, I hit the side of the mountain and burst into flames. The journey back has been up and down with a little more up each time. My hope is that by Monday I'm right back at it, pushing hard to improve my health. I've got two more weeks to go before I weigh in again and I want to see some progress though to be honest I haven't even thought about the scale for the last two weeks. Interesting, I didn't spiral out of control; I feel like I'm spiraling back into control.
