Weekend Confessions

The weekend was not pretty.  There was stress, hormones, too many calories, and not enough movement.  Bummer.

In true Emily fashion the issues have carried over to my Monday.  I had a healthy breakfast and then a not so healthy lunch.  Why does that happen?  Why do my old habits of throwing up my hands and not caring so easily jump to the surface?  It is so frustrating.

What should I do?  Focus on the positive.  I stopped eating my lunch today when I was full.  I didn't eat everything that I got to eat.  On a day like today, I will call that a win. 

Also, I am blogging about it.  Telling you about my issues and my plan to move on.  Honesty with myself and with you all is an important motivator for me.  Thank you for keeping me motivated!  Tonight I will eat a light dinner when I feel hungry and I will ride my bike like the wind or take a walk with one of my biggest cheerleaders.


She's always a willing walking buddy.

How was your weekend?

  2. the weekends can be bad! I went for a movie, bought a muffin for my brother had a small bite and REALIZED that I can walk past all of this--nachos, fries etc. I did and I felt great.
    But on saturday I was not able to control myself. We learn, and we will continue to learn:)
