Whew! What a day I've had and it's only lunch time! So Sunday night when I was regrouping for the week, it sounded like a great idea to start blogging--to really put myself out there! And right away I'm taught that my imperfect life is not a reason to overeat and throw in the towel. A little blogging right now means a little accountability. So I'm still here.
So here's the short on what's happening and what I'm learning:
Life this last day and a half has been crazy--as usual. I've been preparing, loading, and delivering tons of stuff to a local consignment sale--my attempt to rid the baby gear while not having my own garage sale. A mom's night out last night proved too tempting (food wise) and a rain storm messed up my whole morning and delivery of my sale items. Top it all off, I finally get my kids home for lunch and we have hardly any food in the house. Bad news!
So my first reaction is to throw in the towel and say--life's crazy--let's eat! Not such a good reaction.
What I'm learning is that I have to PLAN, PLAN, PLAN! My food, my meals! I have to take this part of the plan seriously. If I knew what I was planning to eat for lunch, I wouldn't be tempted by certain foods in the fridge. If I have my salad greens clean and my vegetables cut, it would be easy to grab them and go.
The lesson to learn is -- make the planning a priority! It will help me get where I want to go and move me forward!
