Rather than add to what I wrote yesterday, I thought I’d go ahead and write a new post.

I went home early on Monday because there was very little to do at work. As a result, I did not go for my daily 1.5 mile walk around the area. Then yesterday I stayed home with Ann so that we can tend to our son who was running a very high fever on Monday night. By Tuesday morning he was doing better but still pretty sick. And again, I did no walking.

Now it seems his illness has rubbed off on me as I have had a runny nose, cough, and sore throat for the last few days. This also means that I am not very up-to-the-task on the exercise front by not partaking in my nightly 30 minutes of Wii Fit for the last two nights. But I was willing to eat more liberally than usual yesterday.

The results have not very pleasing to say the least, but that’s what happens when you are at home and don’t keep yourself occupied—you tend to eat. I was pretty much a snack demon all day yesterday, simply not paying attention to what I was eating, how much I was eating, or the frequency in which I was stuffing my face.

But now that I’m back at work I find myself in a more controlled environment in terms of food intake. I am only going to eat what I have brought to eat and since I have no money for the food machine, I will thumb my nose at all those goodies inside of it.

These past few days have just been a small roadblock in my quest to lose those last few pounds. We all have them, and how we face and overcome them is purely at our discretion.

Simply put: this hasn’t stopped me. I will get better and I will reach my goal in a few weeks.

And a head’s up to the folks at Yellow Basket in Carson: you’ve won. I have decided that I will have my first really good hamburger at your restaurant once I reach my goal. So please, have my double cheeseburger and onion rings ready for me.

Oh, and a diet Coke 🙂

  1. I do think that one of the hardest things is to be at home and trying to lose weight.

  2. Without a doubt it is. Yesterday definitely proved that to me.
