Sorry I disappeared there for a minute. I tend to have about 3 "good" eating weeks a month, and one PMS week where it's all I can do to resist stuffing my face full of sweets. I don't always succeed during this week, and for the past 2 days, I've been off track. I am absolutely aware of it. My mentality is generally 3 steps (weeks) forward, 1 step (week) back still means I'm ahead.
I always start off on the right foot in the morning for breakfast, but I become exhausted by the struggle and give in. For a long time I would consider this "bad!" But, that always triggered my all or nothing attitude that would make it so much harder to get back on track. Now it just is. I'm not upset about it. Will I let it continue? Absolutely not. That's what makes this a lifestyle change and not a diet. My weigh-in is tomorrow and I've been on my best food behavior today.
Hubby still hasn't found a job, but in the mean-time he has decided to go back to school to become and electrician. Many of his hobbies involve the trade and he'd like to get paid to do it. The original plan was to move into a larger house in August, but with hubby now going back to school, we've decided to down size into a smaller apartment for a year and are going through everything trying to decide weather to keep it, donate it, sell it, or give it away. It's overwhelming, to say the least, but I know it will be worth it in the long run.
Wish me luck...
