Overly Stressed

Unfortunately and fortunately I'm very very busy right now.  So my post will be short and sweet.

Work is overwhelming right now, but I'm handling the stress well and not turning to eating.  Which is very rare for me.  BUT I'm also friggin sick again.  I came down with a very bad cold this week.  Like really bad, bad enough to miss a day of work.  Should have missed more than that, but I'm too busy to miss work and felt horrible for calling in sick on Monday.

So with that, I'm also trying to get ready for a 4 day weekend up north.  The kind where you have to pack for cold, warm and rainy weather as you don't know what it's going to be.  The kind where you have to bring all your meals, most of what you need for cooking utensils, etc.  The kind that once you get there it's heaven but it's hell to get ready for.

I did well over the weekend, I let my mom help me eat healthy.  We had only a few moments of weakness but nothing to throw me off for the entire weekend.  I counted points every day but Monday.  I was too sick to care what I was putting in my mouth Monday - and I did horrible.  I went to the store and got ever treat that I have wanted and ate them all.

I counted the points for the fish fry and chose to skip dinner that night because of it.  I actually ended up eating peanut butter instead... which I probably could have made a salad and sandwich for all the peanut butter I ate.  But whatever, I was starting to feel sick and I didn't care.

Overall I did well.  I didn't get in exercise, but I did get points for activity because I was constantly moving this weekend... so Friday, Saturday and Sunday were very active days.  So I'm counting that.  The good news for the week is that my back is starting to feel better and I'm so thrilled about that.  I was really scared last week when I was in so much pain.

I ended the week with losing 2.4 lbs.  Which is good.  I'm trending downward.  I'm a little nervous for this mini-vacation because not many people do well on vacation.  I have gathered and packed some healthy things but I know some of the meals will not be so healthy.  I am bringing fresh fruit, salad, nuts and some cheese sticks to ensure I get my veggies and fruit in and have some healthier choices.

Other than having a cold, I'm feeling great.  Much better feeling when you eat healthy.  ALWAYS need to remember that, but it's very hard sometimes when those good foods TASTE good, but don't make you feel good.

Good luck to you this week.

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After.
