I haven’t been eating the best this week. I didn’t go over my calories but that doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t been eating well. I stepped on the scale and realized that I have gained 4 pounds. My goal is to get under 160. Unless I make some changes I’m going to be over 170 pounds. I know if I hit that number I’m going to be very unhappy. I know why I’m emotionally eating I just need to figure out how to stop or at least do it while eating the right things.
Let’s start with number one. I’m still trying to figure out how to fill full with my schedule change. I think I almost have it figured out. I just need to bring me some healthy snacks to eat in between meals and make smarter choices. But also sometimes I just throw my entire diet out the window when I’m dealing with things in my personal life. I had a falling out with a friend and I’m trying to deal with that. I kind of have some things I want to say to her but at the same time I want to respect her boundaries. However I don’t think I had the chance to say what I wanted to say about the situation. I’ve kind of decided what I want to do but I’m still adjusting. It’s a difficult and delicate situation that I’m slowly navigating. Whatever the outcome is I’m sure I’ll be okay.
I found out at work that a coworker felt like I was micromanaging her. I respected what she said. I was slightly offended if I’m honest. However I really had to think about what she said. I do tend to want to say something about everything. What I see as just making sure everything is moving is micromanaging. I honestly wish this was the first time I heard this. Unfortunately it’s not. My husband has said something similar and so have my kids. I really do tend to either take over or even have to put my hand in everything. So I’m really going to work on it.
So my goals this week is going to be to work on curbing my eating, getting in a good workout, getting back to my affirmations (up until yesterday I wasn’t doing them at all), and reading. I didn’t pick up my book except one last week. I also need to make time to journal cause that is something else I haven’t been doing.
