Today is a brand new day and I’m feeling good. My hips are sore so I can’t workout, but that’s ok because rest days are important too. I’m not feeling hungry quite yet, so I’m being good and waiting until I’m fully hungry to reach for my breakfast. I will be eating one of those yogurt packs with the toppings, just like the one I ate yesterday but a different flavor.
We are going to meet some family about an hour and a half away today and we are going to meet for lunch. I’m hoping I can be good and order healthy options, if not I’m hoping I’ll stop after I’m full. I think later we will be meeting someone else for ice cream.
As I sit here this morning reflecting on the day ahead I am going to take a moment to be mindful of how my decisions today will make my body feel.
I had the yogurt for breakfast, then I ate some grapes. I got a little off track when we got some tarts on the way to meet some family and I ate two of them(they were mini). I’m not too far off track as long as I have a good day.
For lunch I had some good and bad moments. We had the tarts, but I also had a small sliver of cookie cake. That was a lot of progress because I really wanted more and I also wanted a cupcake, but I stuck with just the small sliver of cookie cake. At lunch we went to a bar and grille type place with Mexican food. I had probably too many chips with queso and salsa, but when I told myself that it was the last chip I listened and stopped. I also stopped eating when my plate still had food on it. So much progress today. I’m feeling better than I would have if I just finished the food or had more chips.
We stopped for ice cream on the way home then I had a truffle and a Quesadilla. So better than I have been doing but not as well as I hoped. I’m feeling hopeful about tomorrow. I have made progress but I’m looking to make more!
