Passionista - did you make it? Migrains are horrible. I don't get them as much as I used to when I worked in front of a computer all day.
SockMonkey - great plan!
Today I planned to stay under my calorie target so I could have a treat at the mall with my 7yr old daughter. Once a month each child gets a "date with mom" and of course she wanted to go to the mall.
Happily, I focused on her - getting her some clip earrings, trying on a fancy dress - and didn't feel like getting anything. When I came home, after the little kids went to bed, I decided to have a small bowl of ice cream with my leftover calories. I think I enjoyed sitting down and savoring that ice cream more that I would carrying around a pretzel (and my purse, and our coats, and the bags!) at the mall.
Planned to succeed and succeeded with my plan! Yay!!
