Ah yes, the foreshocks to a major graze-attack, usually involving anything sweet or which is easily eaten during one-arm curls (bowl to mouth). Yesterday I was fixated prior to leaving work on a six-pack of skinny cow ice cream sandwiches. Ate them all before I got home (a similar event had happened in July which spurred the start of the 62 day stretch with no sugar or artificial sweeteners). Today it was the birthday cake for our unit director. Oh well. Back on the wagon again. Staff meetings are always good at stirring things up, especially when there is a disconnect and we're not talking on the same sheet of music. Just show me the data...
On a positive note, I seem to be weaning myself off of caffeine. Just one small cup in the morning rather than a large one followed by an even larger one at work. I'm not sure if it's the brand of coffee or getting a whiff of my own coffee breath when I'm having to wear a mask at work. I've been feeling more thirsty lately and water seems to be what'll do the trick.
Tomorrow's house-cleaning day, so I know I won't be thinking about work...I'll be trying to find places to put stuff that's been piled up and accumulating, hopefully recycling a bunch of stuff, and getting the first round of pollen and cat hair off everything. Hopefully it'll rain and then it'll be easier to play dig-dug in the garden. I need to relocate some grass and get another bed ready---this one will be for soybeans and black beans.
Back in October, I started slacking off a bit on my exercise and food tracking. My exercise lately has been working in the garden/yard. The good news is that I've been able to maintain my weight loss within a 5 pound range. WooHoo!!!!! So at least I've incorporated some healthy habits enough to sustain me.
I feel like I'm rambling a bit; I'm starting to fade. I'm grateful for a day off tomorrow! I'm also grateful for all the support and encouragement I get from my spark buddies!
