Resetting my day yesterday really helped! After DH got home we went and picked up the car from the shop and did some grocery shopping. I know he is feeling bad that my healthy eating had to be put on hold because of finances, hopefully that is over now, so he took me freggie shopping! We spent most of the time shopping in the produce section. I had a huge salad last night, very little dressing, and it was wonderful! I already feel better from just having one meal full of freggies.
But despite all that my anxiety was through the roof. I nearly had a very bad anxiety attack on the way home from the mechanics. I don't know why, I could find no reason, but then reason usually has very little to do with it. I still managed to have a good evening and went to bed on time. I think that is why I'm in such a good mood this morning. Enough sleep, lots of freggies. I'm trying to look on the bright side and not let my anxiety get me down.
I may not get time to do much actual cardio today, may try to go walking but it is supposed to be very rainy today. If it is not, I'll walk around the church parking lot with the kids while waiting on DH to get done with practice for the worship team band.
I'm still going to have my pumpkin spice latte, it is one treat I allow myself once a week. I love them! I love pumpkin! In fact this morning I'm browsing through the pumpkin recipes and found four that I'm going to try. I don't want to have actual pumpkin pie, because of the sugar. I may allow myself a slice for Thanksgiving, but I'm going to try these low cal, low suger recipes first. One I tried last time and it is a pudding that has like 60 calories per serving and tastes wonderful, and lasts for a while. Pumpkin is so good for you, if you don't load it down with sugar!
Okay, so I finally got on the scale this morning and YIKES! I gained. More than I thought I had, but not too much, enough that if I work hard enough I can get it all off this week. But I have to be willing to work hard enough. No sweets, no extras, no overeating, lots of working out. With all my challenges that I've got going, the working out should be no problem. I am determined. I will not let all the hard work I did this summer go to waste! I will not sit idly by and let the weight creep back on. I know some of it is that I had no choice in eating processed foods, financially we just could not do anything else. Now I have a choice and I'm going to go back to how I was eating, mostly vegetarian, and how I was working out (my fault for not working out as much) and really nail this thing! NO excuses, it is on me to do this!
