Whew--down to 154 (from 183 in March)!!! Dag, the 14s I just got before school started are getting loose. Feeling great. Eventually, I need to get back to exercising because the bumpy, jiggley, flab is really soft, floppy, and squishy now.
Stress load at work is huge, staying waaayyyy... too late doesn't help. Broke down and went to dinner last night at my fav Mexican restaurant. Veggie fajitas, fresh guacamole and a couple skinny margaritas veggieteach.wordpress.com
And I'm going to the movies this afternoon and plan to eat popcorn. I think the fall carb cravings have hit. Will recover with back to basics eating this week. Sometimes you just gotta give in to the comfort food in small doses. My will power to get back on track seems to be stronger now.
Had a rough patch around the 14th. Would have been Dad's 90th (doesn't usually bother me), cousin (who'd survived breast cancer) passed on from liver cancer, and friend had emergency surgery for ovarian cancer. All that coupled with being over tired and a spell of oh poor me, no one to come home to be comforted by, etc worked it's tentacles around my brain. Did I mention how I hate the shorter days with less light?....
This too shall pass. I enjoy my first graders, even if I do work too hard. But I am cutting back on doing things that sap my energy, like volunteering for the fall festival at school. Debating on passing out candy at school since it really goes against everything I believe about eating for myself. I'll look for healthier alternatives and decide soon.
Off to finish laundry then go to see A Dolphin Tale.
