So- what's my plan? Knowing that my month of December is CRAZY and since I am in waiting mode to see what the podiatrist says on Thursday my plan needs to be very basic. Meal planning- that's it- for the physical aspect. Drink the water and then actually EAT what I PLAN! My hope is that Sunday I have had the time (and taken the time) to do some meal prepping for the week. The rest of that involves tracking. It's what I did before and I saw great results. I tried to get away from it because I felt like I was a slave to MFP and yet, it worked, so not sure why I am fighting it. Get rid of those fried foods, eat more veggies, cook more! That's my plan.
Mentally and emotionally- this one is harder for me-I think it's the not knowing from day to day what's going to happen that affects this. However, I know that I need to take one night- surely I can take one night- and make it just mine. Nothing work related, nothing "anything" related except to clear my mind- whether that be through tv, reading, or journaling. I also need to set a specific night of the week for work related items (this may be two nights)- that could be anything from grading to lesson plans. And, if it's not one of those two nights- I don't work on it- unless it's a pressing need to get it done.
One month- I am taking these one month at a time. This is not where I planned to be on December 1- but reality is- it's where I am. The only way to move forward is to start where I am and don't look back.
(Thank goodness for this). One step at a time, one day at a time... Off and "running"
