Were you getting concerned that right as I get the ball rolling, I was going to stop mid stream? It has just been that kind of week. Late nights of random wonderings of grocery shopping, guitar lessons, then vocal lessons cancelled two seconds before we arrived ( clear across town) causing us to detour to guitar center. So Thursday and tonight was basically my first non active night. Zzzzzzz
Not too much to update as of yet. We are still up in the air on Branson and I’m just tired just thinking about it. The acapella group is also still uncertain, they finally said to the group who is doing the latest songs that they are using less kids due to cost, which caused a stir in support of us who weren’t in the know. It’s just kind of professional to keep us all in the know, ya know. Again this is a fickle business we are in and we really just need confirmation to keep our schedule clear. We aren’t crybabies. So that’s life.
The diet is having it’s ups and downs. No, I haven’t cheated…on purpose. I haven’t broken down in temptation at all. It’s been close. The problem is, I happily start eating something that I feel certain is low/no carb like grilled shrimp, feeling happy and no guilt and I check my carb tracking app and I’ve eaten 18 grams of carbs like that. When I saw that and checked nutritional guides from the restaurant to confirm, I almost kicked it to the curb right then…the diet. I was pretty mopey about it for a day. That’s life.
I honestly have really kept myself in check on this “diet”. It’s not really about the weight loss per say, but the awareness of what I’m eating, and mind strength to not indulge. I think it has really been a good test of mental focus. I’ve been just kind of floating through mindless and mundane from day to day that one becomes complacent. I figure this new focus would be good for me. Plus, it is a focus on me and not anyone else which hasn’t happened in awhile.
I’m looking forward to a lazy weekend where this artic blast coming in is going to keep us barcaded inside and I’m ok with that.
