Be kind to yourself

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Just a quick update, this week has been hard, going back to work after the holidays. Lot's to do. I'm still worried witless about my daughter (she has a bully of a partner and had left him, but then found out she is expecting in August) and I had a row with my son.

I've decided that I need to take Eleanor Roosevelt to heart and start being a friend to myself. Not being so critical and accepting my frailties. So instead of beating myself up for going 50 cals over I've congratulated myself. 'Well done Janet, only 1700 cals today' rather than 'You stupid cow, you've gone over your limit again;

As a result I still seem to be loosing, even though my lodger still seems to feel the need to cook with oil, cream and so on. I'm having to guessimate calories on nights when he cooks. Still, he'll only be here a few more weeks. One of my rentals is coming free and he's moving into that. (He's an old mate that's fallen onto hard times and I put him up rather than being on the street)

Despite all that I'm now down to 200 lb again so all the weight gained over the past month or so has gone. I need to sign up for a 5k in the summer, I'm back to running on the road, hopefully my knee will forgive me.

Off to work now to be kind to myself

    Focussing on the positives is a really good idea.

    I really believe when you raise children that praising them for the good and ignoring the bad (aside from the extreme) is the best way - then they go for all the positive attention and don't like being ignored.

    I treat myself like a kid a lot of the time! It helps!

    (incidentally, I take the same child approach when trying to get myself to eat new vegetables lol "how would I make this appealing to a 6 year old?")
