Just a quickie. I'm about to bike to the bank, which should be good exercise since it's so darned windy today.
I have basically bounced around all month, gradually climbing higher and higher, and now I am a pound heavier than when I started. I'm pretty annoyed by this, but I'm making adjustments.
1. Changing my goal date from November 1 to December first. I'm trying to get down to 279, and it's not going to happen by November 1 unless I have a massive and prolonged bout of gastrointestinal distress or lose a limb.
2. I have examined my measurements. Not tape measure, but tablespoon measure. I think I've been to generous in the tablespoon department, which leads me to believe that maybe I should break out those darn measuring cups again, even though my husband makes fun of me for it. That's okay. When he has to go up a pants size AGAIN, we'll see who's laughing.
3. I have also examined the quality of food I am intaking. I need to improve that. More veg, more fruit, less processed. It amazes me how quickly processed foods sneak back into my diet. I think this has a lot to do with my grand dislike of cooking. I need to figure out a way around that, because I don't see that attitude changing any time soon. I'm a busy woman. I don't have time to chop things and clean things and prepare gourmet organic free-range meals after working twelve hours with screaming demons and their kids.
4. Still working on water intake. I need more than 8 glasses a day, especially if I'm biking more. I can't seem to keep up, and the headaches are getting to me.
Anyway, that's all the news that's fit to print.
Onward into October.
