This week was a long one. Riddled with victories and minor setbacks.
First things first. I lost 0.4 lbs this week. Kind of disheartened about that, I stayed on target (Weight watchers)all week and worked out (TurboJam and TurboFire Hybrid). So I'm down a total of 5.4 lbs in the last 3 weeks. Not nearly as much as I'd hoped. :\
All of this week, I've been really nervous. My unemployed husband was offered a job for less than half of what he was making before and he took it. Kinda peeved about that. He starts today. This now leaves me with the emotional turmoil of fearing for his safty (I don't want to disclose what he'll be doing, but it involves having to carry a firearm--and it's legal--[if you have to carry a gun, that makes me think that you are signing up to be shot at--worried]), and who is going to watch our son. But I have not turned to food. I'm a nervous wreak, but still have not sunk to emotional eating. I refuse to let this derail me from getting healthy. So I'm counting that as a victory.
Also, we spent yesterday meeting my husband's 1/2 sister, and her daughter for the first time. He comes from a long line up of illigimate children on his father's side (winner i know-he doesn't talk to his dad). Which of course lead to eating since we got together for lunch. What I had, wasn't the greatest for me, salad with FF Italian and LF Feta, chicken tenders breaded in RF Cheez-its, and tater tots, but I watched my portions. The down fall was the cake. I didn't check the calories on it before I ate it--I should have. 400 FLIPPIN CALORIES. I wanted to throw up. But I ate it, and got back on the wagon for dinner. The first time I haven't let one meal ruin my whole day. So I'm counting that as a small setback with a HUGE victory!
Today, I'm still on the wagon. Eating lots of high fiber fruits and veggies, oats, whole grains, and my FAV Chocolate Peanutbutter FiberPlus Bar for a snack! Yum Yum Yum! If you want to check out the Fiber Plus bars here they are
