All things considered, my heart tells me to take time off - I've not taken 2 weeks off together since I was 16 (not counting two 6 week maternity leaves). I have a sense that I really want to spend just a few months connecting with my kids and feeling what that's like. My mind tells me to take the job, my heart tells me not to. I'm not sure which is really the right thing to do, but its the path I've chosen.
I'm still walking everyday - and doing a walk to run program. I'm carful with my eating and working my way away from carbs. I'm having a tough time resisting sugar but I'm working on that. I'm also working on having a meatless Monday in my home. I'm looking to work on more vegetables and fruits in my diet. So far today, I've not had any meat and its not been bad.
Breakfast: skim milk, bananna and coffee
Lunch: Greek salad
Snack: Meeting that had dried fruit, fresh fruit and chocolate
Dinner: One small slice spinach and goat cheese pizza (thin crust) and greek salad.
I don't feel deprived (probably b/c I ate chocolate!) and my goal is to stay meatless today. I'm low on protein today but I'll make up for it tomorrow.
I feel good today, I hope you all do too!
