Another New Day...

The teen had an awful day yesterday. She spent the morning in the nurses office and came home with a "stomach ache" which turned into nothing by the time school was over... I am a little pissed at the school for not doing more to keep her there. She wants to quit - she says its too much for her... I think with the right approach she would do better. I know that she's capable. This school doesn't have the commitment or staff to manage someone like her. Meh.

Another new day. I got her up and to school... Go to class! I love you! was met with a glare and the car door slamming.

Exercise other than dog walking is non existent. I'm just not feeling it. Today is another new day, another opportunity... We'll see.

Still struggling with the carbs!  I'm going to buy a protein powder today. I know I should be able to do this without supplements, but it's just not working for me. I need to switch it up, even if it's just for a little while.

I need some new clothes. I don't want to buy big girl pants! My birthday is in less than 2 months. I don't want to be a frumpy fifty. I have to work harder. I have to do the work.

"I know I should be able to do this without supplements" - I always try to catch myself "should-ing" on my own self :) Sometimes transitional tools help, like a supplement, for now. I used to use protein powder supplement daily. Now I don't even think of it. It's great to use the tools available to get you through this early stage, and instead of feeling bad about it, I suggest an option is to feel proud that you are empowering yourself about using a specific tool, to reach a specific goal. That's pretty great! (BTW I like Jay Robb whey protein powder, but there are tons of excellent ones on the market.)

I'll give it a try! Can't hurt, that's for sure!
