Got to change my "Lost" picture from 40 to 50...really stoked to make that goal!
So I lost 6 more pounds when I weighed in this morning from last friday, 51 since Sept. 18th and 98 since Jan. 2009. It was a really smooth and balanced week. I really did great with my exercise and with my food and keeping everything within my ranges, a little low on proteins when I look at the average over 7 days...but all in all, it felt like a successful week!
Business is slower than it ever has been at this time in November for us and so that is stressing me...but it's always worked out every month for the last 7 years since starting my company - so I just need to quiet the fearful voices and keep plugging away.
I've been kind of irritated over the last few days with my wife...no big deal, but nonetheless worth getting it out so I can let it go. She is heading to her families by herself for thanksgiving this year and she wanted to get a bunch of the baking done ahead of time and ship it out there instead of having that much more to do when she arrives...great idea, no problem. But I've found myself twice now in a few days getting pissed that the whole house smelled like a bakery...not good for a carb junkie. But it was just at night when I'd be getting ready for bed or just relaxing watching some tv...it would really distract me and it was just irritating. During the day when I'm working, no problem..I'm in my own world and completely focused. So I get that it's nothing she is doing, it's the lingering battle in my mind and lesson learned that when my mind is idle and there is blood in the water...I notice it like a shark.
Good for me to write this out and see how these triggers do have different impact levels; ie time of day, not engaged, tired, hungry etc...All things that hopefully by learning about how I operate can help me to continue becoming much more mindful throughout each day and hopefully keep on making healthy choices and changing my lifestyle.
Sparkin' it up on a Friday!
