I've been busy at work...I'm on a new client engagement, new team, trying to read documents to understand the project and trying to act intelligent and figure out all the fun politics. I had a couple late nights...stress like this make me fall off my beautiful pristine myfitnesspal.com and exercise everyday wagon. One of my struggles has always been managing my eating during stressful times; but its getting a lot better...the sins are smaller (Utz Chips, Sugar Wafers vs. Full Course Chinese Dinner, Full Course Thai Dinner) and the climbing up back on the wagon is quicker and easier. In the past, I would be good on diets, fall off and then just never bother to get up until something slapped me into consciousness.
My husband asked me what I wanted to do for Valentine's Day...in the past all celebrations automatically included, without analysis, something fantastic to eat...This year I told him I just want some time with him and the kids and some TLC. It just struck me that every wonderful occassion doesn't have to include fabulous or decadent food-that is a milestone for me.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
