Ideal Idiocy

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Albert Einstein

Until I did my tracking, I thought I had done very well yesterday. Um, yeah.

When I was a kid, one of my brothers loved to hold me down, take my hand and make me hit myself in the face, all the while saying, "Stop hitting yourself. Stop hitting yourself." Oh how I hated those sessions. I don't think I've ever felt more frustrated than that, except maybe now when I try to eat within calorie range. I'm doing what I know is right but maybe overdoing it. I know where I went wrong last night but some how, warm from the oven bread is a weakness. I need to work on that.

I got all bundled up yesterday at lunch time and went to get my walking buddy so we could go to the mall. Nope, she was too busy. (You couldn't email me that?) So I went back to my desk, unbundled and did 2 miles of my walking DVD. No snow to tromp thru and no bitterly cold wind. Win Win in my book.

Let's stop the madness, eh?

Cold this morning and pouring the snow. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the DVD again today. Good thing I really like it.

    Way to switch it up right to plan B! Kudos!! This whole eating thing is kicking my butt too. Talk about portion distortion! Whew! Keep at it though, we'll get there!

    Fortunately for me I realize that hot baked bread would be a weakness, living alone I don't have others to feed. So I don't bake bread, its easier for me to avoid it after a taste when I go out.

    I agree - having a back-up plan is awesome!

    I think it's awesome that you have such a great back up plan against the weather. I know you've been frustrated with your 'over the calorie' count - but I am just so impressed that you are consistantly burning over 325 calories every DAY! You rock! Keep up the great work!

    You could be using the excuses that it's too cold, too icy, too snowy, but instead you just go to plan B.... awesome in my book.
