Back on track. Again.

Yep, finally back on track.  After three or so weeks of basically eating whatever the hell I wanted to eat, whenever I wanted to eat it (this included thin and crispy veggie pizza, fruit tarts, bread and sandwiches, chocolate, fries and a homestyle chicken sandwich from Wendy's, Taco Bell at least once, some more candy, cookies and a lot of other things I can't even remember.)  Three weeks... of eating whatever I wanted, and waking up to a bloated face.  Waking up to my acne being out of control.  Waking up to feeling like garbage, but continuing to eat that way anyway.

Well, I am back now.  I weighed in at 160.2 this morning after a new recent high of something like 164.5.  I am ultra happy that is more sodium than anything.  I'll just assume I really gained about 2-3 pounds over the last few weeks.  I'd love to get back down to 156 and actually, finally, hit that damn 155 before I go home for Christmas.  Will I be able to endure and remain strong over Thanksgiving?

Resisting my Grandfather's stuffing recipe is next to impossible.  It's super salty and incredibly delicious.  And, stuffing is my favorite food in the world.  So, maybe I'll have a forkful and move back on to the turkey.  Yum, yum.

...I can't believe Thanksgiving is almost here.  Holy crap.

Well, just thought I'd pop in and give a wee bit of an update.  If you want to see what I've been up to lately, here are a few links!

I was just writing about getting back on track myself! Failure only happens when you don't get back up after a fall, right?

Your photography is BEAUTIFUL! And, plan for some of that stuffing perhaps, so you don't feel like you lost all control and then throw in the towel. If it's planned for, then you can enjoy it and move on. It's not the one serving of stuffing that kills us on Thanksgiving, it's that serving plus two, then three plates of dessert, and the food between then and Christmas that was eaten because we "bombed" at Thanksgiving dinner.

I have lots of ups and downs like that too. I am going to try and stay smart MOST OF THE TIME this week, enjoy T-giving dinner, and then stay smart and work out all the way up to Christmas and then hope that I don't have the holiday gain (that is so hard to get rid of!).
