Well...here I am...
...It's Monday and I had this day down! It was a pretty good day all the way around.
My eating was on track with a smoothie this morning and then a good salad at lunch. Dinner was chicken and green beans.
I got a compliment at work today that really made me feel good. I work with a bunch of smart people and to get a compliment is a rare occurrence, so it really set a good tone for the rest of the day.
We worked late AGAIN tonight. On the way home, I told hubster that I wanted to go to a Peruvian restaurant we like. I always get the chicken and it's good. But, hubster said he didn't want to eat out, but rather just go home. So that's what we did. I was a little disappointed and felt a little...pissy...about it, but I got over it.
Now the night is done and I'm glad we ate at home, but it kinda bugs me that I was off-kilter about not getting to eat a particular food...or eating what I wanted when I wanted it dammit. I hate this particular emotion/feeling because it's neither positive nor constructive and it literally doesn't do my ass any good when I feed the emotion.
All the more reason to stay aware. It's been a struggle lately, but I'm keeping my shit together and moving forward - it just seems my steps are a little smaller at the moment.
The strides are coming.
