I did not sleep much at all last night and spent today dealing with really weird back spasms and a headache that is threatening to become a migraine.
No walk or other exercise.
Still within range for food, but I am also fighting the urge to inhale all kinds of stuff. I have healthy food, it would be just a matter of more than I should have...
The scale is up about 1.5 pounds. Not surprising - I think it's just my body getting back to life after this dreadful cold.
I am tired of having these aches and pains!

She brought doughnuts again today. I have skipped so many doughnuts, so many candies, dip and chips and all the holiday goodies. I am not a saint and this is also not a statement of deprivation. I did not feel well today and it was the kind of blah where I thought carbs would make me feel better. In the past, that has been a license to inhale food like crazy. How did I do today? Not as well I as would have like to have done.
Instead of a walk at lunch, I went to my car and slept. I guess I needed it because I was out!
For most of the day, I was in the mood to eat anything in front of me. There was nothing in front of me, so that was good. Later in the afternoon, I went down to give Angie something and she gave me the doughnuts. They smelled so good! One was a cinnamon twist and I love those! I headed to the kitchen and got some herbal tea. There I saw that there was leftover pizza from a meeting. Combo pizza = my favorite! Someone came in to get coffee and I walked away. I don't like people seeing me carry food, so I thought I would come back in an hour to see if the two slices were there. I went back to my desk and inhaled two doughnut holes. Then I turned away from the bag of doughnuts and got back to work. When I went back to the kitchen, the pizza boxes were empty! YAY!
A disappointing day in terms of exercise. A muscle went nuts in my back so I did not push it. I was not completely victorious in food, but it was not a wipeout either.

This is one of those days when being careful about food, water and exercise is drudgery. I got in over 10K steps, not much strength training and will end the day on track with food and water.
Yesterday was BF's birthday, but he did not feel up to a celebration. I brought home pizza (his preference) and, all the way home, I kept thinking about what I would have for dinner instead of the jumbo combination slice from Costco (they are bigger than most slices). I looked on SP when I got home and saw that someone had reported the cheese pizza is 700 calories.
There's no way to record the extra effort that some of my steps represent. I had a very heavy cart at Costco and it was hard to push and turn. As usual, I parked at the very far end of the parking lot, so I can feel the workout that pushing that cart gave me! Bonus exercise!
Several people at work have come to me to make sure I know about the paralegal job posting. I don't know when I will hear from HR or the hiring manager, so I am just waiting...
I stepped on the scale out of curiosity and discovered that I have gained over 2 pounds since the cold has started to abate. I was not surprised, but I am disappointed. I remember years ago a book about set points. Perhaps I am at a new, lower set point. I was stuck in the 180s for a while, then 178 for a very, very long time. Now I am fluttering in the 162-160 range. I would dearly love to be below 160 by the 27th (my SparkVersary), but I will deal with reality and won't be distroyed if I don't make it. I will be disappointed, but it will only be a temporary setback.
I spread the Spark, or at least tried to. My friend Yvonne would rather use an Excel spreadsheet! I am disappointed...
Why do so many good tasting foods contain so many calories? I had chicken and mixed veggies for dinner and am satisfied, Had I eaten the pizza, I would have regretted it.
