Tuesday Totals

17 Jan

I didn’t do so well with food this week, and I think it’s going to show in a (hopefully small) gain tomorrow morning.  I didn’t stay within my daily points limit any one day this week.  I’m not upset about it because in the long run it’s just a little blip, but at the same time I do wish I had done better.  I’m trying really hard to balance cooking and eating with exercise, work, sleep, taking care of business, social activities and maybe sometimes a little free time.  It’s not easy!  I’m also trying to mange stress in healthy ways; this time of year is extremely busy at work and we’re short staffed, so I’ve been volunteering to work some overtime, and I’ve noticed I’ve been reaching for carbs, sweets and booze more often.  I’ve made some good choices too, so moving forward there needs to be more good than bad, at least if I want to lose more weight!
