BACK UNDER 230! Again. Deja vu. For the last time. Never again. Say good bye to the 230s. Blah blah blah. Yada yada yada. [Insert Charlie Brown's teacher's incoherent talking sound here.]
I would like to say I did good yesterday. But, I didn't. I would like to say that I was positive all day after going back over 230. But, I wasn't. I was frustrated. I would like to say I ate a good lunch and skipped the leftover food I found in a meeting conference room. I didn't. Not only did I eat some, but I can hardly imagine it being any worse than the cheese sauce covered chicken and noodles dish that I ate. (Though the fact that my stomach started revolting in the middle of me eating this fat-laden dish kept me from finishing it.) I would like to say that I kept my sodium low. But, I didn't. After a morning of jalapeno pretzel pieces, I complimented it with an evening of sampling about six different new potato chip flavors (by the way, the new Lay's Wasabi and Ginger chips are the bomb) and also ate a few pieces of pepperoni. I would like to say that I finally stopped drinking soda. But, I didn't. I had a Pepsi with that bad lunch and drank a couple of drinks of root beer right before going to bed for good measure. I would like to say I got up this morning and worked out hard after being too tired to get up the first three mornings this week. But, I didn't. I didn't even make the decision to stay in bed, as I had the last three mornings. This time, I forgot to change my alarm and it was set wrong. I would like to say I expected to be down 1.2 pounds this morning. But, sadly, I was not expecting that. I expected to be up over 231 today and then crying to you this morning about my addictive personality.
Instead, for the second day in a row, my result did not match my behavior. And, I couldn't be happier. With my birthday weekend in front of me, I won't even write that I really hope it's the last time. I could stay under 230 this weekend. Or, I could break 240. It really is a crapshoot.
Here's to doing everything wrong and being rewarded for it...
