I am a little nervous about this weekend. I am going to a symposium w/the natl. guard and the adjutant general for the state. (He is top dog of the air/army ntl guard). Anyway, I have been nominated for an award for the volunteer work I do with the families on the base. So exciting.
That is not why I am nervous.
I am nervous about eating. I am doing so well and seem to really be in a grove. The problem is, I am in an enviroment that I can control all the variables. At this conference, in a hotel I won't be in charge. I will eat what they have and when they have it. I know I can counter some of this by taking snacks and eating those, but really, we have all been to conferences and know what their lunches are like. I can handle breakfast and I think I can manage dinner okay but the lunches just might do me in.
Okay, so this is what I need to do. Focus. Relax. Count.
I can do that, right? If I focus on my goal it will help to keep things in perspetive. I need to relax some so that if I do have choices that aren't great, I won't just give up. I need to take a paper and pen and write all my points down and count them so I don't lose track.
Maybe I will take my gym shoes and work out gear and hit the tread mill...better yet, the beach. No, forget that. There will be no maybe. I will do it. I will make dh go with me to.
Alright. I think it might be okay...but could you all send me some happy weight watching, point counting, exercising vibes?
