This weekend, "Finding Nemo" was on the Disney channel at bedtime and of course the girls HAD to watch it even though we have it on DVD and can watch it anytime we want. We watched till the first two commercial breaks and then went to bed. I really do like the movie and one of my favorite parts is the "Shark Intervention." Bruce and his buddies are sharks that are trying not to eat mindlessly, ie. eating little fish just for fun. During the weekly shark meeting, one of the little fish gets a bloody fin and Bruce smells the blood.
It seems to me that I've been smelling a lot of blood lately. Another birthday party this past weekend, my birthday last week, candybars glalour in the house and just an overall feeling of "I don't care!"
It's difficult to stay focused all the time and it's difficult to say no all the time, but this week I will use my 3 month journal as I know I do so much better when I use it. I looked at it this morning and noticed that I haven't writen anything down since Thursday. That's four days of eating wrecklessly. I know I try to make the better choices, but when I'm not writting things down, I also know that I tend to eat too many points.
So here's to a week of tracking and not eating just because I smell the blood.
