I don't know. I find each month to be more hectic than the next. There is never a let up! It never stops. IS there even a month on the calender that doesn't have a holiday? Or a birthday? Or a school function, a social event, a something? And then there's just the every day stuff... nope, never ending.
So for me, I had to learn how to handle my food within the hectic-ness. I had to realize that though the circumstances may change, the requirements don't. I am still required to eat well - regardless of what is going on around me. I can not use the hectic-ness as an excuse to overfeed myself.
Hope to do better next month.
I think you've been struggling for quite some time now, so please know that I mean this in the best of ways - It says under your name "Don't give up!" and boy is that true. But you also must work on "don't give in
" (to the food, your cravings). Because when you do, you make this process SO much harder.
In addition, you can't hope for it to be better, you have to plan for it to be better and work
for it to be better. And than you shall see, it WILL be better.
