Back To Work…..

I really do mean it this time…….


I’ve had a tough time with motivation lately.

Not quite that bad, but my motivation has been lacking for the last couple of weeks. After a little break, I’m recharged and ready to get back to working on that goal of mine.

The last few days have been a blur of…..



with a side order of

and a sprinkle of….

I broke one of my cardinal rules and used the old “I’m already cheating so I might as well just roll with it” excuse. And I broke another rule, hiding from the blog so I didn’t have to post my cheats thus making it easier to keep rolling along downhill.

 So here I am. Trying to right the ship before I do any additional damage. The good news is that I can’t think of any dangerous eating events in the near future. I have at least 2 weeks without any planned outings. Time for bunker mode to kick in.

No….wrong Bunker.

That’s better. Time for me to move to bunker / hermit mode until I can get back down below 170!

Weight Statistics


Almost 4 pound OVER my panic weight!

Some of that is water but a LOT is real solid gain. I need to get back to what works for me which is low carb. I also need to get back on that bike. Hopefully I will report a ride tomorrow. I’m just waiting until 6:30 for things to cool down a bit then I will head up to the levee.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Oatmeal – apples and cinnamon, maple sugar

Lunch – Chicken with salad

Dinner – Turkey burger with cheese

Snack – Oatmeal

Calories – 1450

The oatmeal was my last carb hurrah for a while. It will be dropped from the menu starting tomorrow. It’s pretty clear that I stink when it comes to controlling carbs. I need to learn to eat better while eating carbs but so far I haven’t been able to control my eating while eating a full carb menu. Heck, the fruit basket at work is just about as evil as the donuts on Friday.

Oh just so you see a REAL picture of what I have to deal with at work, here is a picture of one of the birthday cakes that sent my weight SHOOTING up a few weeks back.

That is one of the two grazing tables with 1 of the 3 cakes they had for the group birthday party a few weeks ago. 😛

Tip Of The Day

Don’t be stubborn.

If you are on a long-term diet at some point you are going to get SICK OF IT and you will rationalize mixing things up a bit. I guess in some cases this can work or in most cases it will lead to a little 18 POUND GAIN!

Stick with what works. Yes it is boring and monotonous and drives you bonkers but it works. I have a few friends that should take this advice to heart. I certainly need to get back to what I know works for me. 😀

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
