Spring Breakin'

I've been off work this week for spring break. Just enjoying being off work. Riding my bike most everyday. Taking Sydney for walks and doing a few DIY things around the house. I think I'm going to get some flowers today for the yard. We have been having the most perfect weather.

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.

Somewhere, out there.

I'm trying desperately not to stress-eat. I feel like I have no control over my little corner of the world. And you'd think that since I can control what I eat, that I'd be good with that. But for some reason, I just want to dive into crap food and eat, eat, eat.

Bosses are making decisions, co-workers are making situations, and someone put too much crap down the disposal (at my house) and now I need a plumber.

I feel the call of the wild and I just might have to answer. I went for a bike ride, and that felt good. The only problem is I ended up back at home. Wish I could ride away. Far away.

Keepin' On

Just a quick note to say hello and hope your week was a good one. I've been moving right along with the plan to stay low carb and low cal. The weather has been so perfect, except for a few windy days, so I've been on my bike every day this week. The number on the scale is slowly moving in the right direction. Not as fast as I'd like, but I am aware daily and I will keep doing what works and scrap what doesn't.

Have a good weekend!
