09/24/2018 I am...

I'm still here.  It's just been a rough few days.

I have 10 hour days at work.  I was told that I needed to take it easy when I returned to work, but I ended up working more than 23 hours over two days.  Then I did a parade of homes with a friend of mine.  It took two days to go through all the homes.  As I was getting out of her truck on the first day, I wrenched my back and that put the kibosh on any more homes on Friday.  On Saturday, my back felt a bit better, but my right knee felt like it was the size of a football.  But I took ibuprofen and forged ahead.  When it was all said and done, I collapsed.  I over-did it and now I'm taking a day and chilling.

Food-wise, it's been a "learning" time.  Before we left each day, I made sure I ate in order to minimize poor eating.  It didn't exactly work out the way I planned.

On the first day, my friend suggested we stop and get a Blizzard.  I had the attitude of "I can have this - I'll be good later."  This is not an attitude that is conducive to successful weight loss - at least not for me.  In any event, she ordered and ordered LARGES.  I honestly was not paying attention to what she ordered when she placed the order.  When I'm on my own, I order a medium, which really isn't any better.

Then on the second day, one of the homes had made freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.  I didn't have just one cookie - I had 6.  This isn't good either.

I really, REALLY have to cut out the added sugar.  It's not good for me and I know this.  I will work to do better and work to stay on top of my emotions.  I can't delay this until later and I have to take ownership - I have to take the lead in this.  I can't allow myself to be influenced by others when it comes to poor food behavior.  It's my ass...literally!

Hubster left for travel and will be gone for a bit.  I generally make a trip to Sam's and get a big ol' salad and a pork roast to put in the crock pot to eat for the week.  I didn't feel like going anywhere, so I just stayed home and ate leftovers out of the refrigerator.  Hubster had grilled a huge pile of green beans along with some yellow, red, and orange peppers - they are so good.  I also had some leftover salmon and grilled chicken.  So those were good choices.

I spent some time today reading about weight loss and health.  I'm formulating what I want to do.  I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday, so I'll talk with him then and get his opinion.

I clearly don't have my ducks in a row, but it's a work in progress.  I'm hanging in there.
