On the diet front, things are moving along pretty good. I've lost 14 lbs since January 18th (the day I decided to get back to low carbing). And, while some days I still have a few too many carbs, the next day I cut back so it seems to be working. As long as I stay active I believe the scale will keep moving in the right direction.
Next week at work, I'll be doing the work of two people for about six to eight weeks. (A co-worker is having surgery and will be out.) Going in at 6am and leaving...whenever I get most of it done. I may even be working a few Saturdays. I am looking forward to the overtime (cha-ching) and I'll be too busy to snack, but I'm worried about being too tired to ride in the evenings. And getting to bed early for me will be a stretch. I'm a night owl, so going to bed before 10pm is unheard of in this house. Add to this the fact that we are being moved into temporary buildings this week while we are all off, and you can see the stress meter rising.
I have noticed something lately. Since I've been eating less carbs, I don't feel out of control around food. Well, that's not saying I'm not tempted. But I feel in control. That's what's important.
I hope you are having a great week.
