Sometimes life just gets in the "weigh"

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

I have accepted that this week is just going to be nuts......
On Sunday I was blindsided by what must have been food poisoning and so Sunday and Monday were about the most miserable days I have had since becoming a healthier Pam. I survived....but it was famine for two days and then almost feast the next day trying to eat things that I thought wouldn't hurt me!!
Tuesday wasn't too bad - and by the evening I was feeling more like myself. But it's all down hill from here I think. My husband and I are eating out with a client this evening at a restaurant that I wouldn't choose as the healthiest choice (It wasn't my choice to make!) The food is however, VERY VERY good! I am pretty certain that I can get some kind of grilled seafood and a veggie though - if I choose too. They have a very rich menu - and I will have to be strong! Tomorrow I have lunch with a dear friend - which again, there will be healthier options there - but NOT like bringing my own lunch as usual. Tomorrow night is my mother's 70th birthday!! Yeah for her - but we are going to the mexican restaurant to celebrate. I have only been there one other time since I started this journey - but I know I will be in way over my head there!! And then---for the weekend I am hosting a get together to celebrate Mom's big birthday with all of her friends and family.
All of this eating is going to be difficult enough - but all of this busy-ness and celebrating is also cutting WAY into my fitness time as well. I can't exercise at lunch tomorrow....I can't exercise after work tonight or tomorrow night. But I CAN work out every morning, and that will just have to do. I guess sometimes life just gets in the way of my perfect order......I used to get very upset and worried when something came up and wreaked havoc with my perfect plan. But I gave up worrying about things that I could not control a couple weeks ago, and have done really well with that so far....so I am going to go with the flow on this too. I guess if I gain a pound or two in the next several days...the world isn't going to quit turning and hey - I am REALLY good at losing weight!!
OK life - we'll do it your way this time!!

    Very good blog Pam! I hope you got through the week alright, and most importantly, hope you remembered to have FUN! I am glad the food poisoning is better..that is awful! You are right, you ARE good at losing weight, and fantastic at keeping your eyes on your goals and knowing that even when life gets in the way you will bounce right back! You are an inspiration to me and someday I hope to be as successful as you are at this!!

    Great Blog and Great Attitude Pam!

    You could try eating half and box half or split an entree' with someone.
    You are good at losing weight so no worries either way. Just be sure to enjoy the time you have with your mom and friends.

    I know in my busy social life that there are weeks (especially during "birthday season") where I am restaurants almost every night. I find that I do best when I just order what I want, but draw a line down the middle both ways and only eat 1/4 of what's in front of me--then I fill up on salad when I get home. Good luck in your busy week!
