Productive progress

Soooo...this morning woke up and after breakfast with Todd I was most productive.  I straightened the living room and bedroom, vaccumed and shampooed the carpets, emptied the dishwasher, loaded the dishwasher, cleaned the kitchen, swept and scrubbed (on hands and knees) the kitchen floor, made muffins for Todd, peeled and chopped my potatoes for tonights dinner, carted the compost down tot he bins, cleaned out my car and made the bed.   I love productivity. 

Interesting.  I feel more alive and part of the world when I've been productive.  How interesting is taht.  The days I"m a sluggard and just laze around the house I feel kinda useless.  But today I feel alive.  Very interesting.  :-)

Yesterday I kept my between meal binges to a nil....non existent binging between meals.  That's good.  I overate a bit at one meal and I didn't eat exactly healthy at another....but at least I didn't binge between meals (which has been a problem the last few weeks......PROGRESS!)

Today I'm working on water and the between meal binging.  :-)  I knew that it woudl be difficult because we ate a late breakfast and then it's a long haul until dinner....so I brought something for a mid afternoon snack.  I knew that if I dind't, I'd raid teh cookies, the candies and all the other goodies that have been dropped off here at work.     Progress. 

So yes, although my steps are baby steps, I'm making progress.

Being busy and productive works for me too...the more busy I am, the less I stress. The less I stress the less I eat.

Good job gal! It gets difficult sometimes. I too sometimes get carried away; forgetting that a cracker or a glass of juice has calories. :-)

You can do this.

Progress is always a good thing.

Glad to find you posting again and i like the new title.
You picked a difficult month to try to begin again, so don't beat yourself up.
Tomorrow is another day--for right choices.
My goal right now? Drink more water. I can even feel thirsty, but am busy at something, so put off going and getting a drink of water. How dumb am I?
Best wishes that your New Year will be better.
