What is it about having a busy day that things just compound and pile up on you? By the end of work today, I felt like I was hyperventilating because I really didn’t get anything done that I’d hoped to do. I’m not even sure how that happens most of the time. Then Matt tells me on the way home that he’s having trouble with Service Canada EI stuff and we got a tax bill from the City - one that is clearly wrong. It makes me glad that I get to come home to Matt and Brandon everyday.
Anyway, the point of this is for me to document general life stuff, but also to write out my experiences in getting healthy this year. This is an important step for me. I’m trying to be transparent and hoping that my commitment (which is very strong) continues to stay strong. Yesterday, I updated my food journal and realized that I’d lost almost 9 pounds since the new year. That actually puts me under my pre-pregnancy weight and I’m thrilled about it. I’m hoping that I continue to make progress this month and will hopefully be down 10-15 pounds. But the goal here isn’t weight loss - it’s really a committed healthy lifestyle. This was my new year’s resolution and I’m pretty proud of the progress I’ve been able to make so far.
There was very little to note about today - it was just busy. One of those days that goes by and you feel you’ve accomplished nothing, but you’ve been overwhelmed most of the time. Thank goodness Mondays only come around once a week.
