I'm not sure if I'll keep up with the online food diary, but for a few days I figured it's be worth a try...

And yeah, pancakes was not the best thing I could have had for dinner, but it was better than the pizza I wanted to order. I think.

Another even week--no loss, no gain. Considering how crappy I ate all week, that's a major victory. There have been cookies (oooh, my mother in law makes these awesome oatmeal crispies that I am powerless against) and pumpkin pie on Christmas, and yesterday's Arby's regular, followed by a piece of chocolate cake, and then a late dinner at Denny's were probably not the best choices I could have made (but they were goooood...)

We're grocery shopping today, I need to get some reasonable foods in this house to keep me from reaching for the junk (and to keep me from eating out) and to get me back on track.

Bench PressWe're also checking out the base gym today. It occured to us that we can likely use it for pool, which I need, but for now free beats $100 month for a membership where I have to fight for a lane in the pool (though later, probably after we know how much we'll get socked for in taxes this year, we'll join Gold's Gym....pool plus tons of classes there, especially karate, which I want to try again even if it hurt, and damn, can I create a longer run on sentence???)

Ooops, yes, it's Friday. Bad news is I didn't lose anything. Good news is I didn't gain anything. And considering this has been the week frm hell, that's decent enough!

New goal this month:


Friday, December 16, 2005

Half a pound lost again.
Better than half a pound gained.
Or worse.
We won't discuss the fries or the chocolate truffles...

I stopped eating the Nurtisystem food because it was tearing me up. The problem is I didn't know ingredient was doing it.

Tonight I tried a couple small pieces of a sugar free candy...loaded with malitol.

Malitol is not my friend.

I still don't know if soy is a problem, but I can be sure that mailtol is, and NS foods tend to be loaded with it.

My poor tummy...

Half a pound.

I suppose that's something...I fought that damned half pound all week. Up and down, up and down...but at least on the scale this morning it was gone. It might be back next week, but for today, it's gone.

Could be worse. We found this nice store yesterday with awesome dark chocolate truffles, and dammit, I had a few. I could be UP a pound instead!

All my jiggly stuff held steady this week; no loss but on the bright side, no gain, either. I'm coming to terms with the idea that I'm probably not going to make my -30 goal for Christmas, but that's okay. If you'd asked me when I started all this if I'd be down 20 by now I'd have laughed at you.
Sales Rack
We're going to start Christmas shopping this week.
Does that count for exercise?
That should count...
All those people, all the pushing and shoving...yeah, that should count.
