Oh, but today was a long one. I spent 10 hours today trying to track down a missing cat unsuccessfully (called dogsfindingdogs, and they are coming tomorrow, please wish us luck, so that we can bring Jack home to his Momma!). Then I ran over to the hospital where one of my best friends was having a crisis with her 3 month old. They are alright. Needless to say, I wasn't good to myself today. I don't know how to draw my line yet. I did not go over my points: good day. I did not get in enough veggies: bad day. I did over 2 miles today including the gym (and I completed my circuit): good day. I broke my no eating after 2am rule: bad day. I broke my rule because at 1am I so few points eaten. I have just been really distracted, which I know isn't good enough, but I cant fret about it. I need to learn from it. I am never prepared for chaos. Also, I find that when I am highly distracted doing something I am deeply passionate about (cat rescue) I completely forget hunger. I need to get up, or just downstairs 15 minutes earlier on days like today so that I can pack a quick lunch and a snack, and I need to eat breakfast before I leave the house. I've never made enough time for myself, and I guess that it qualifies as "being good to myself". So I have my first be good aspiration: I want to make sure that I give myself enough time to have a day I wont worry about. This is a big one for me, as I don't recall ever doing this before. Time management has never been my forte.

I know! I am having a critical time getting my points in this week. Tomorrow I will be more aware of my totals, and my food groups, especially veggies.
Also, just so everyone knows, I will be out of town from Friday to Sunday evening. I will try and make sure I can update every day, but I'm really worried about missing my Sunday meeting! Any suggestions? Should I call my leader and tell her I'm not going to be there? Should I pack my scale?
