Biggest challenge of the day
Today I had a super productive day. I cleaned house, did laundry rearranged my little boys room and made a homemade rhubarb crisp all before 5:00 p.m. After supper tonite I identified one of my biggest downfalls of weightloss. I hate to waste food!!! At supper my daughter was full with have of a fajita left and guess who without thinking just started to eat it. Was I hungry? Nope just didn't want to waste it. Then my little boy wanted an apple for a snack he ate about 1/2 of it and was done. He then handed it to me (he's 2) and I almost ate it! I did stop myself this time but wow I wonder how often I have been doing this. I also wonder why do I do this and the only answer I can come up with is because growing up we didn't have food to waste. We didn't have much money growing up so we wasted nothing no matter what! I must make myself pay attention to my body and when it is telling me it is hungry!! So starting today I am going to ask myself if I am really hungry before I eat something and if the kids don't eat something I am giving myself permission to throw it away instead of eat it. Tomorrow morning bright & early I start water aerobics and then off to a chiropractor appt. I have had to fight hard not to weigh myself till Thursday but I am very anxious to see if I am actually losing any weight!!!
