Friday, Aug 24 2012 - Life is noisy:)
View GOLDEN_LOVER's food & exercise for this day
My life has a lot of "noise" going on and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
Sending Abby to school and her having a difficult time adjusting. Meg starting grad school and her interviewing for jobs and looking for an apartment. Erin who is unsure what she wants to do with her life. My hair dresser (I know what you may be thinking) of 10 years is leaving and I need to find someone new. Jim's Dad's recovery from his heart attack. Me adjusting to the empty nest. Work noise...
And my weight loss journey isn't any better. Invitations to do things such as "grab lunch", "have a drink" after the movie with friends, "have a small piece of cake" at work birthday celebrations. Rushing home after work, cooking and not eating until 8 or 8:30pm. Fitting in exercise when you feel there aren't enough hours in the day. NOISE!
I think the answer to noise for me is the following; not to panic, take one day at a time and focus on "what's the most important to me".
So with my diet, I've walked 3 days this week. It's been a long time since I've done that. I've taken my lunch; turned down the invites and suggested others bring something back so we can eat together. Not taken invites to "go out for ice cream" in the evening.
I'm listening to the noise, I acknowledge it's there and I am STARTING to not let it be an excuse for getting in the way of my weight loss priorities... Go ME!!
And the weight - 210 - down 1 pound...
