This morning shows me up on the scale by 1.3 pounds. I KNOW I didn't eat that much food yesterday. For goodness sake, I was only 39 calories over my budget. (1339 yesterday). I also know that on the first day of my ....well....suffice it to say that when I weighed everyday I was able to track my body cycle...and on day one my weight would pop by 1-2 pounds. SO I'm OK with it...really, I am. OK, OK, OK...I'm fighting it in my head...simply because I didn't want to see that pop upward on the scale. But oh well...such is life. My plan. Hold steady and firm. All will rectify within a few days if I don't lost control of myself.
January was smooth sailing for me. It all seemed to go well. It was easy. Like I said, smooth sailing. I'm still going strong, but yesterday was just a reminder of exactly how difficult this journey is some days. I need to remember to gather strength while I'm going full steam ahead. That strength will carry me through the 'down' moments.
Meanwhile, this weekend is going to be difficult. Birthday celebrations galore. My niece turns 10 and my nephew turns 6. I know it going in. I'm trying to figure out the best way to proceed. I'm going to do my best, make the best choices that are available to me and carry onward! I have already talked to my sister in law to find out what is for dinner tonight (my nieces family birthday meal) and I have my food planned out. I have an extra 250 calories set aside so that when my niece pulls out her birthday cake I can have a nibble. Notice I said a NIBBLE!!!! I've got today planned. I should be good. I'm also planning on trying to sneak in a run somewhere between work, picking up my nephews, taking my oldest nephew to his soccer game and the family dinner. I have this!
