Okay I kinda back slid but not really? I dunno. I want ya'lls opinion. Thursday was an exceptional day. Not to hard at work and a buddy of mine offered my family to good sized window air conditioning units for free if I came up to get them. It was an 160 mile round trip to get them. So I thankfully agreed to come up and get the units. He made no guarantee that either would work, but I assured him I was confident they would indeed work. So I make the trip and get the units. Kathy and I return home around 9:30 and it has been determined that I would have to change the end on the cord to one that will plug into my outlet. I do so fairly easily and get the unit ready to put in the window. The moment of truth comes and we hit the power switch. Nothing! So I made sure i got the plug wiring up right and nothing. Now to that point I had had only 1475 calories. I sat down to think and decided that I would have my yogurt I had not had yet. It was good but I was still hungry. So I finished some cucumber slices I had made a couple of days ago. Had I stopped there it would not even be and issue. But I also went back to the fridge and got me about 100 calories worth of lunch meat and at it and then I got a tablespoon of peanut butter and put it on a slice of bread too! Now all this time, I knew two things. I was well within my calorie bank, but I was eating because I was frustrated. I mean my total damage calorie wise was 1680 for the day. But for 3 minutes, I was frustrated eating. I kept it under control, but I still did it. After typing that, I am gonna call it a step forward. I just decided that. I was self aware and definitely stopped a LOT sooner than I would have in the past.
Tomorrow is weigh day!! I am so excited!! I usually have weighed fairly regularly in the past. But this time around I decided to weigh only every two weeks. It gives you a bigger number to work with and gets you excited. I am hoping for 8 pounds. I don't have a reason to think 8 pounds, just a hunch is all. I have gone over bank one time only and been under bank all the other days. I have done regimented exercises as well as been more active generally, and well dang it, I feel LUCKY!!!
Well I gotta get up in a few hours and do the Friday grind, so I am going to sign off. I am looking forward to everyone's updates tomorrow, so let us know how things are going. Keep on inspiring me and I will try to do the same for you!!!
