We are going to call this Day 2, though it has been quite a few days since Day 1. I have been a stress monster the last few days. Stress Monster + Halloween = Bad News for dieting. I have new found resolve this morning though.
My mother is living with me while Bryan is deployed. She is the only person in the world that makes me feel like a bad mother on a consistent basis. It drives me insane! I'm not the absolute best mother in the world, but I really don't suck. So, having her here is hugely stressful to me. It wasn't my idea for her to come out here, though I didn't try to discourage her. Now I feel stuck. I need to figure out a way to live with this before I eat myself bigger than I already am.
Obviously I'm stressed with Bryan being gone. This time has been the hardest for me. I don't know what it is, I'm used to it, this is our 6th long separation, but I'm just struggling this time.
So, instead of dwelling on the hardships, I need to remember my goals. I have 15 lbs to go until I'm in a healthy weight range. I'd like to be there by the end of the year.
I'm going to run today, which I love to do, but it has been hard on my legs lately. I'm just going to run once a week for the first month. I need to work out doing something else consistently 5 other days a week. My plan is to run today, do TaeBo tomorrow, walk Wednesday for an hour, do Wii Fit Thursday, Walk Friday, and something involving weights or yoga on Saturday.
Food is my biggest problem area. I need to plan my meals in advance.

So today my plan is:
Weight Control Oatmeal
Pumpkin Soup w/ cheese and grapes
South Beach Bar
Chicken w/yams and veggies
