(Yes, I know, it's Thursday.) 2 weeks into the new year. How are things going? Well, for me, I'm doing better at getting my water. I'm drinking a minimum of 4 glasses these days, which I hope to increase. I'm taking my Calcium and Vitamin C every day.
Still not getting much exercise. Paul and I did take a walk around the neighborhood one evening. I've lost 3 pounds overall in the last week, but my daily weigh ins do a bit of up and down.
Tracking my food has been good for me. I'm seeing patterns. My days usually start out with a bar of some sort. Right now, I'm mixing it up with Probar Bites, Slique Bars, and Kind Bars (afflink). This is my "on the go" breakfast, which I consume while we're homeschooling in the morning.
I like my new phone keeping an eye on how many times I go up and down the stairs in my house, but some days I don't have pockets. I ended up sewing myself a little pouch so I could wear it around my neck.
I think that part of the reason my health has gotten out of control is that I've been feeling rotten about myself as a person, and so "not worthy" of taking care of myself. Which makes me more miserable, which makes me reach for the chocolate. It's a vicious cycle.
I'm starting to realize that while I may be a rotten mother to one of my children, I do want to be at my best (or at least better than this) for the rest of them. It's bound to be a journey.
