Well, I do believe my luck has run out. I now have a cold. Sore throat, stuffy nose, cough. I'm not truly miserble, but it does make me VERY tired. Two hours after getting up I was ready to go back to bed. I will lneed to lie down later before I have go to work (3-11)

Well, curtesy of a weekend where I really did not pay any attention to what I was eating nor did I do my exercise, there is no wt loss to record. Doesn't mean it isn't there, just not this morning.
I had an interesting experience fri. nite/sat. When I got home from work, got ready for bed stood on the scale. It read...259. (for me WHOO HOO~) When I got up in the morning, post pee (this removes any fluid built up in the bladder, nothing eaten or fluids taken in yet, the scale should say the same or less........ read.......261. WHAT???? Where did that 2 lbs come from???!! By what nasty form of magic do pounds reprduce themselves??? So not fair

During this past years wt loss journey, I have had what I call "sneek peeks" of lower scale numbers. (I'm one of those that weigh daily. Keeps it from sneeking up on me if I screw up) They usually come early in the morning, Post pee, before coffee. Those slightly lower numbers than previously seen. The Promised Land. I had one of those yesterday. Two pounds lower than todays "official weigh day number" put onto the tracker. Rather than be dissappointed that I could not put that lower number on the tracker, I'm hopeful that I will not only get there, but will soon pass it and move on to the next "milestone" of a new set of numbers below the current. (passing the zero's is important). There are always fluctuations. Water gain, muscle gain, fat loss, even how you stand on the scale can make a difference. So when that scale goes up a couple of pounds, don't dispair. If you continue the good of what you're doing-your exercise, your mindful eating-you WILL get where you want to be even if it's not as quickly as you want.

Ok, I know breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day. I get it. I work hard at remembering to eat breakfast. I keep it simple. But....... on days like today, I just get lost in other things and forget. Well, maybe not completely forget. I remembered a couple of times at some point in the morning that I hadn't eaten anything yet. Once was while I was getting the trash together so I wouldn't have two bags hanging around for the next week. The second time whas while I was doing my exercycle. Then.....well I gathered up laundry from the dryer, took it upstairs folded it. Went in and took a shower. (did some measurements while I was there). Got the rebate info from the new cell phone and made my copies, got it ready to send out. Let dogs out, let dogs in. Remembered I hadn't put in some of my meal stuff from yesterday :p. And, now, as I type this, I'm remembering that I haven't taken my pills yet either, and here it is 11:15 am. Not too late to take the pills but whatever I eat now, kinda late to consider "breakfast". Brunch I guess.

Talk about a loss of control! I know why. Well mostly. For some reason, despite the fact that I mentally reminded myself to go exercise, it didn't happen. Not the cycle, not the strength exercises. I just didn't.
I did a few errands. Made a bad lunch choice. Put the supper in the oven. Roast chicken, husbands choice as his BD was mon (i had to work) so I told him I'd cook anything he wanted. The supper was not overall a bad choice but I could have eaten less of the stuffing or forgone it all together.
Part of the "emotional" reasons were about a half hour before the bird was due out of the oven he called and said he'd be home late. There was a water main break at work. Ok.
He got home about a half hour late, ate and told me he was going back. Ok.
I have to admit a bit of resentment here. He works with his son. It's his son's business. He gets paid but not all that well. This extra time......unpaid. I understand it. I would have done the same. Didn't change how I felt. I work 3-11 4 eves a week. That gives us 3 eves a week together. That and weekends. Well, I work every other weekend so on those days we have the mornings. Consequently, if something gets in the way of what time we do have, I tend to not like it too much. We've had our ups and downs, especially the past decade or so. A couple of times we have come close to calling it quits. There are still issues. I know that getting a day job might help but despite dozens of interviews no offers have come through. Depressing and disappointing. I have wondered if ageism or wt prejudice have come into play with those decisions because I HAVE the qualifications.
Oh well, enough gripeing. Today will be better. I will MAKE it better. Better choices. Those are up to me.
