I am doing way better today than yesterday. I have easily drunk (?) the water and enjoyed all the tasty food today....however it is 3:30 and I'm really getting hungry already.
This is the hardest time of day for me because I am very snacky, and I just had my snack. I think tomorrow I might try to not have a snack between b-fast and lunch and save it so I can have 2 snacks right now.
I just did my workout, I do the insanity workouts, and it happened to be pure cardio which is one of the most intense workouts. I didn't have a ton of energy. I put Olivia down for a nap (scarlett was already asleep) and I wanted to just go to sleep on Liv's bed. I actually closed my eyes and Olivia said "No mama, go to your own bed. Actually you are going to do exercising, haha." Good thing I told her that so she could be my encouragement :) I had to stop several times and jump back in.
Anyway, I am going to tough it out! I guess I'll just try to stay busy and keep my mind off of food.
One positive thing I am noticing today is that my kids are eating way healthier since I am. Scarlett ate some sunflower butter and an apple slice for a snack and had lots of steamed broccoli with her macaroni at lunch (the broccoli was leftover from the breakfast I made. I had extra so I just steamed it). Olivia had a bite of an apple and a bit of broccoli, which is good for her. It makes me feel good to have healthy things to offer my kids. I have been worried about Olivia with her mood swings and as I've prayed and thought about it, I have realized that her diet is awful and am hoping that getting less processed food in her will help. Teaching my kids to eat healthy starts with me!
