Keeping it going!
Day 3, didn’t go horribly. Woke up (on time), worked out, took a quick shower then snuck in a nap before having to get my little off to school. I even had a good hair day – bonus there – especially because my leggings and sweatshirt surely weren’t a match for it.
Got in the grocery shopping and some office work before picking up the kids. I thought the day was going to take an ugly turn when my hubby told me this morning that his mom lost 14lbs (in 20 days) one of Dr. Oz’a diet.
Knee jerk reaction I was pissed. Obviously because I’ve been riding the struggle bus continuously over here. BUT … instead of letting it ruin my whole day and then eating like it’s my last meal – I shifted my mindset. While eating my breakfast I decided that I’ve got to stop comparing myself to what she’s done because I can’t restrict myself like the plan she did. I’d lose 14 and gain 25 when I fell off the wagon. Instead, I’m going to lose weight my way (yeah yeah – stop laughing one day I’ll figure it out) – without restricting my diet. I just need to master the self control part. So while secretly hating everyone that loses weight – I came up with my plan – for at least the next 30 days. Try and maintain some self control. One bagel instead of two – that kind of thing.
Disclaimer- I’m happy my MIL lost the weight – kudos to her and I hope she keeps it up. The weight is hell on her joints and her health so anything that helps her feel better is a-ok in my book. I’m just a closet hater because I don’t have diet discipline…yet.
I felt my mood take a turn for the better tonight and I’d love to wake up feeling the same. It felt nice not to be a straight up grouch.
Day 3 Gratitude: Good hair days that make you look like you have yourself together.
