April 19th, 2017 Adds The Challenge

April 19th, 2017 Adds The Challenge

We spent today adjusting after the tilted schedule surrounding Oliver's arrival into this world. I know Courtney's exhausted and several others, too. For me, it adds the challenge of giving a hoot about my maintenance plan when all I can think about is getting more sleep. And giving a hoot means I must be willing to act, not react. If I react, I'll dive into the food. If I act, I'll recognize the dynamics in play--acknowledge what's really needed (sleep-not food), and if that isn't enough of a deterrent, I must be willing to defend the integrity of my plan by picking up the phone and calling in support. If I can't muster the energy needed to give a hoot, I have support friends who can remind me how much I really do give a hoot.

I did make it home for a nap this afternoon after a quick stop at the hospital to see Courtney and Oliver. They were in the process of being discharged, so it was a short visit.

One of my goals today was to make time for my workout without making the workout the last thing on my list. The further down the list it goes, the less likely I'll do it. I was successful by inserting the workout time right before dinner preparation.

I enjoyed a short visit with mom this evening. She's doing well and looking forward to seeing little Oliver again.

Noah's adjusting to having a baby brother. I was told he's already asked Oliver to "stop making noise." 

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, I made time for a great workout at the Y, and I stayed well connected with solid support.
