Back in October I ranted a little about my lack of control on my eating habits. I made a brief effort at the time, and now, a month later, I’m back in the same rut.
I haven’t been cooking. I go out to eat almost every day. I’ve been drinking beer several times a week. I’ve been snacking. The only exercise I’ve been doing is bicycling. I haven’t stepped on a scale in a while.
That’s changing now. I will drink NO beer until further notice. I will cook and prepare lunches to take to work. I will not go to the coffee shop, unless it’s to buy more whole bean coffee or to buy a cup of coffee on a bike ride.
I realized earlier today that I would have ordered pizza today for Thanksgiving had I found a place open. As I got hungrier, I cooked what I had here at the house. I hadn’t went grocery shopping in a while, but I had pork chops, frozen vegetables, and a couple of potatoes that I made into mashed potatoes.
The meal was satisfying, even if it meant I had to skip turkey, stuffing, and cranberries. 🙂
I had hoped to be under 200lbs by the end of the year. I now know that’s not going to happen. My revised goal is to be under 210lbs by the end of the year. It’s going to mean a difficult push to even do that.
I’ll get back on the scale tomorrow morning, then update my daily weigh-in page.
