She Passed... and I realize I need to get a grip...

Hooray!  Milestone met; the teen is a licensed driver. Even after she passed I ate my way through the day including a celebratory pint of ice cream at a "famous" local shop (because that justified it in my brain at the time). I have got to get a grip on my eating.

Yesterday I prepped veggies, and some meals for the week. The teen has tech week and school play this weekend, the little one has her semi finals Saturday for her IEA riding team, and I am queen volunteer for both. I have to make cookies for both girls, volunteer Tuesday for the teen, attend the play Friday night and man the registration desk for the little one all day Saturday. Of course I'll be outside all day Saturday and it will be 34 all day; the coldest it has been in weeks. Grumble.

And I'll be too busy to run with my girls Saturday and that's two weeks in a row! I have to get to the gym and get back on my training program.... I skipped runs last week and I'll need to catch up...

My plan this week is to stay on plan; accept what the scale says - it's simply a moment in time, a blip on the radar... AND I need to stay on top of things. NO processed sugar, only real food, not too much, and salad every day is not a bad addition since I washed and cut up a ton of lettuce!

Congrats on her passing! That's fantastic!!!

It sounds like you could both do with improving or adding to your stress-management skills (as we all could, really). Coping techniques, you know? That's all it is really, having those tools for the job of managing the stress. Not to stress yoga again, but... it's where I have picked up some valuable stress-management techniques. They are not perfect, by any stretch, but at least I have tools now, where I previously did not. It helps a lot! All best.

Congrats to the teen and thankful for less stress for you :)

Yes, the scale is a moment and you know that an hour from then it could say something totally different. Don't give it power.
