Going back to the office after vacation - not something one generally looks forward to, right? But for some reason, I was truly excited to see my colleagues and jump head first into the projects at hand.

Weird, I know. I was feeling great about a lot of things - the opportunity to focus more on what I'm eating, less on how much I'm running. Doing good work in the community by helping to control the feral cat population (although any free time I have for writing has been spent updating our website and blog about these cats... but I enjoy it). And don't forget the upcoming holidays! Lots to be energized about.

I won't say that I've been a model of nutrition since I got back from Florida, but I am certainly doing better than before I left. And I've picked up a new book to read - The Shift: How I Finally Lost Weight and Discovered a Happier Life
- a recommendation from a friend that finally came in at the library.

Hoping to get through a week of eating rationally before setting down to Thanksgiving dinner. We'll be going to my father's house - which is usually a challenge eating-wise for me.


My plan is to bring at least one wheat free side dish and dessert so that I can feel good about what I'm eating next week.

    I, obviously, am not you, and you will almost definitely not be able to do what I would do in your shoes, but at this year's dinner I would ASK on purpose for a really BIG piece of that lasagna and then proceed to never eat it ALL NIGHT LONG. But I wouldn't let anyone take it away from me either, oh no!!! "I'm SAVING it for later!" It would almost certainly cause a ruckus (which is why I'm sure you wouldn't do it) but I would revel in the dismay!! Yes, I AM eccentric.
