Under 260!

This morning's numbers put me at 259.8.

For the first time in 2 1/4 years, I'm under 260, which is, if I recall correctly, the weight I was when we moved to Sioux Falls.

In other words, I've lost all my "Republicans are stressful." weight.

Just kidding.

It is nice to see those numbers keep dropping though.

Next goal: 250.

Another One Bites the Non-fat, High Fiber Dust.

One more pound down.

This morning's numbers: 261.2

This is one more pound down from last week, but, unfortunately, a pound UP from yesterday.

To be honest, I'm surprised I'm down at all this week. I skipped THREE days of exercise and let some unrefined carbs back into the house this week.

Unrefined carbs as in white pasta, Pepperidge Farm cookies, and big, fluffy white bread.

I swear, in terms of sheer addictive potential, that stuff is worse than crack. Or meth. Or the internet.

I guess I can take some pride in the fact that I think I have a MUCH better (not perfect, but better) sense of moderation when it comes to portion control and eating out of actual hunger rather than boredom, thirst, sadness, curiosity, whatever.

That said, It's clear that I'm starting to slack.

The start of the school year has put life on the "crazy busy" track again, and I'm still figuring out how to manage it all and get the daily exercise in.

Add to that an exchange student who doesn't know how to cook for himself, and I'm spending a lot more time in the kitchen.

Not. Good.

So, here's a plan to get my crap back in a row:

1. Make a weekly "plan" on the weekends. Carve out specific times reserved for exercise.

2. Get rid of the refined carbs. Again.

3. Develop a meth habit. I hear that stuff makes you skinny.

Okay, maybe I'll wait on number three. But it's always an option.

Sweet Numbers!

This morning the numbers were at 262.2.

That's 34.2 pounds down!


And this is DESPITE the influx of high quality, European chocolate into our home!

Who knew I had this kind of self control??
