I've been struggling with my good habits since moving into the new apartment. Maybe it's just the space--having my own, it being an unfamiliar space with no memories ingrained, including those of health, fitness, etc.... Either way, I'm not happy with where I am right now, and sh*t's gotta change. I'm re-establishing the mutually-beneficial diet bond with NICB87, and talked to the bf and even our roommate (the age-old 'please leave my yummy diet food alone' conversation--because my diet food is yummy. Touche pas my reduced fat cheddar and my yummy, yummy fruits!!)
I weighed myself this morning, and wasn't surprised to see 169.8 as my number. As my lowest was 157, this really hurt...but honestly, as sedentary as I've had to be with a broken ankle/foot thing (hairline fracture, nothing major, just inconvenient), I was a little surprised that my weight wasn't higher.
So, here we go--time to kick it up a notch, think outside the box with exercise, and in the meantime, get myself back on track with food. At least I'm recognizing these issues before I was approaching my starting point from 1.5+ years ago! This is a slip, not a failure. And lord knows, we all slip. :-)

Lunch today was a cup of ham and bean soup and a toasted pumpernickel and cheddar with milk. Work-time snack will be a Lean Pocket, and my late-ish dinner will be a salad with chicken breast...the chicken isn't cooked right now. (Yet another thing that went by the wayside when I broke my foot/ankle thing...having things like that always on hand.)
