Today marks six days on plan. I finally am feeling really good and in control of my eating again. I still have my moments; yesterday when I was slicing cheese for my little girl, I almost had a breakdown because I wanted some so bad. It went like this:
I want some cheese!
No, it's for the Princess.
I want some too!
No, you have been on plan for five days. Don't screw it up now.
It won't screw anything up! It has no carbs, it will be fine, it won't throw off your carb count at all.
It has calories.
Ugh, just one slice, 100 calories! It would taste SO GOOD!
You won't stop with one slice. You'll eat 500 calories of cheese and not lose weight.
But I won't GAIN...
I didn't eat it. I just gathered myself for a split second... just long enough to get it put away and move on.
My poor daughter can't catch a break. Sinus issues, cough, strep tests, ear infection with severe pain, and now the antibiotic gave her watery diarrhea. I have spent 2 days cleaning up a lot of messes. Medication switch is happening now. I love my kids and being a Mom but it is hard not being able to get out much when the weather is so nice. Hopefully she will be better soon and we will have no more sickness for awhile.
That's all for now. I should have some kind of reasonable weigh-in on the first.
