And the question is: What did you do when you didn’t have Internet, Eileen?
Actually, I had SOME Internet access. It was just enough for frustration to set in. For me frustration = grab some carbs and vegetate. It didn’t help that the weather was too cold for much outdoor exercise and I was too lazy to drive to the gym.
So I ate more sweets than I’ve been used to and sat around more than I should have.
Thanks to TLC’s marathons, I learned some unusual (and rather useless) stuff from reality TV. There’s an American Gypsy community I never knew existed and there are some Amish who act definitely “un-Amish.”
There were good visits with family too as well as TV marathons of nostalgic old TV shows – time to look backward and reminisce.
Now it’s time to look and move forward. Fortunately, after 3 years of maintenance, my body seems determined to keep a stable weight in spite of my temporary “unsparklike” behavior. I’m at the very top of my goal range and looking forward to being able to track again. I’m not delusional enough to think I can behave this way indefinitely and not do some damage.
Happy New Year everyone!
