This week has been one of the hardest I think I have had since I started my new meal plan. Tuesday was a bit of a bust because of the Professional Development Day with my work. We ended up going to someone's summer camp for the day and the food was everywhere! I tried to stick to the veggie tray but I did stray a few times. Then when I got home I wasn't hungry for supper and I had a piece of chicken and at 10:00pm I had an egg salad sandwich...whatever possessed me to do that, I still have no idea! It's so hard when your entire house is a jumble of boxes and paint and you don't even have a stove, microwave or dishes! I am finding it super hard this week just due to the utter chaos that is my home right now.
Wednesday I was doing perfect all day until around 7:00 when my husband decided to BBQ up some hot dogs. I should have said no, I already ate, I don't want one or need one for that matter. But I didn't. The good thing is though after about half of the hotdog I said..."Why am I eating this??" and I threw it in the garbage. Other than my little run in with the hot dog I did pretty well and today I am bound and determined to stick strictly to my plan. I can do this. I know I can do it, I just need to find my zone...need to regain focus. OHH! I also had a NSV last night. Around 8:00pm my hubby asked if I wanted to go down to the store for an ice cream. He had been kind of hinting at it for about an hour. He's on vacation right now so he thinks he can eat whatever he wants...and last night, he wanted ice cream. I couldn't believe the words coming out of my mouth but I actually said no! To ice cream! Then he folded and said "You're right Carolyn, I don't need that junk!" Score one for me! Thankfully we were babysitting our niece and she was fast asleep in the playpen so I couldn't really go anywhere anyway but still, If I had of caved I would have so told him to bring me back one!
The exercise front has been pretty impossible as well this week. Every night when I get home from work, I am either painting or taping off a room or crack filling and last night, I was babysitting all night. But at least I'm not sitting on the couch all night watching TV. I am staying pretty active. I know for the next week or so I won't have much time to exercise but I am hoping to get a few walks in. Scott suggested we go for a walk tonight to check out our new neighborhood so I will definitely take him up on that offer....as long as we get the bathroom painted today.
Well folks...that's it for me for today. How is everyone doing this week? Any NSVs?
