I have realized that I am not always able or always want to workout on the weekends and I am not a good Monday exerciser. So I realized that I need to workout Tuesday through Friday in the mornings before work and then if I am able to exercise on Saturday or Sunday then great and if not then it is o.k. too. Anyway, I had planned to get up this morning to start my week off right and of course Lizzie did not cooperate. My angel sleeper is not 100% the angel sleeper as no one is. Apparently, she slept a lot yesterday so she stared at me and grinned until after 11 last night then she woke up at 4 bright eyed and I had to feed her. Therefore, there is no way I was able to get up at 5:15. So no harm no foul...I will either workout tonight or that means that I will just have to work out on Saturday and Sunday if I want to get in my goal of 5 days. The best thing about it though is that I don't feel bad or guilty, that is just life. Although, you do have to make time for exercise I have to remember that for me my family comes first and if things don't workout how I planned them then it IS O.K.!!!
As for my past weekend I was really proud. I did not have any crazy cheat meal but I did have 2 controlled splurges I like to call them. I went to a wedding shower and I had control, it was a great thing. I ate a plate full of fruit and 2 phyllo dough crab stuffed things and 2 small lemon tarts. That is it, no more. I typically just stuff my face in these situations but I did not do that this time. Then Saturday night we went to noodles and I had the side salad and then chicken and mushrooms with no pasta and only 2 small pieces of bread. That is it, not 2 loaves of bread or a huge pasta dish. I was very proud of myself. I was completely satisfied at both places and I proved to myself that I CAN BE IN CONTROL OF MY EATING! What a great feeling!
