Geez… I’ve not made a post since November? Doesn’t seem like that’s right, but I guess so.
Well it’s been a bittersweet couple of months. Bitter because I’ve gained weight. I hate running down the stairs and feeling the extra weight jiggle. Yes, even at my weight, you can tell when you’re carrying more. Sweet because I’ve not had to keep myself accountable. It’s been an eating free-for-all. That’s always fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the holidays and made my routine promise to myself on Dec 31st that 2011 would be ‘the’ year…. sound familiar?
Ya, that lasted until about Jan 3rd.
That’s ok. I’m not a failure until I stop trying…. and with that, it’s time to get back with the program. I’m back on Nutrisystem and that feels good. The first few days are always the hardest, but I’m past that. Right now, I’m not craving anything sweet… I’m about a week into this attempt.
Last weekend, I spent some time with S and the gang. Had a great ‘adult’ lunch. I forget how much I miss that. Seems like all my friends have kids now and our lives don’t always match up. It’s just life. It’s friends with ‘add-ons’ LOL. No, I love kids… I do. It’s just hard when you can’t relate to having to get up at 2:00 AM for feedings… anyways, all that to say that eating was totally out of control. After our adult lunch, I ended up buying 2 boxes of Girl Scout cookies out front of a local grocery store. They were gone within the next 24 hours. Add that to the multiple grilled cheese sandwiches I ate the rest of the weekend — you get the idea.
So it’s good. It’s kinda good. Feeling in control and I like that. Even given the stress with the earthquake in Japan (my sister’s family lives on the coast there) on Thursday night… I didn’t cave.
