Hello my beautiful friends!  I thought I’d do a little week in review for you, since this is officially my first full week as a blogger!  So, how did things go?  Let’s start with the not-so-good…

  • Last week was incredibly stressful for me.  Work was INSANE, and I spent more time at work than doing anything else last week.  When I’m busy and working hard, I’m all in, so I tend to let the other stuff slide (you know like working out, eating well, and generally anything that has to do with making me happy).  I can be an all-or-nothing type personality, and I really need to work on better balance.
  • The cupcake incident…chalk that one up to a weak moment.  But Bad ass Victoria had better get herself in check, because this can’t be happening all the time.  Next week I’m going to a workshop on Mindfulness practice—using mindfulness to combat emotional eating—so watch for a blog about that soon.
  • So the consequence of not taking better care of myself, and eating cupcakes and other not so great things for me…I gained 0.6 of a pound.  Yes I gained, but not a complete disaster.  Enough of a gain thought to  make me realize I better step it up and get myself back on track.

And the good…

  • I’m feeling a little more like myself again after this horrid work week.  I met a friend for coffee on Saturday and I had breakfast with my parents and my brother today.  I feel calmer and more relaxed heading into the new week.
  • This blog!  I’ve received so many positive notes and words of encouragement, I can’t thank everyone enough.  I’m really enjoying blogging so far and I’m hoping I can bring you some interesting thoughts in the days, weeks, months, and years to come (ok I may have just locked myself into a lengthy time committment there).

I hope everyone has an amazing week!
