Sweet Comfort

Today was one of those days when I needed a little comfort. Funny, it's been a long time since I felt I needed to eat something to feel better. But today was one of those days. It's not like I went hog wild overboard or anything. I just had a craving for onion rings. Burger King onion rings if you really have to know.

Maybe it's because I was just so tired today. Feeling a little burned out. Feeling all of the 31-plus years that I've been a graphic artist/designer. Bored. Disgusted. Maybe it's because I went to the gym for the first time in almost a week to do a little weight lifting. I weighed in at 307 pounds. That's one more pound than last week. It must be water weight. Damned water. I don't even drink the stuff. I'm more of a diet Coke fan myself.

Tonight, the missus and I went to Red Robin to have split a burger. We split the watchamacallit burger with pineapple. Dee-lish. The kitchen split the burger for us and gave us each a little pile of fries. I cleaned out the basket.

So, I've been a little bit of a stinker today. Onion rings and fries. It's not the end of the world, but I'm not speeding toward my goal of 100 pounds by July 9, 2006 either.

Tomorrow's another day right? Riiighht.

Yes RanMan, tommorrow is another day. You'll get into your rhythm of eating better & exercising.

Just think of it like I do: work on one diligently and the other will soon follow. It's easier for me to exercise. Now I'm more concientious about what I eat, because I don't want to sabbotage my workout efforts.

Now, I still indulge in good food. Like I made a fabulous choco-peanut butter cake this weekend and ate several slices of it. What's the choco-peanut butter cake made of, you ask? A fudge bundt cake with reese's peanut butter cups baked inside, melted chocolate drizzled on top, and melted peanut butter drizzled on top of that.

Soooooo....indulge here & there. But try to behave the rest of the time...I'm here wit'cha!

Thanks RanMan for noticing the not eating enough...I need the support. It is like this largely due to not having a refrigerator yet. Ack! (laughing) You will see my meal changes drastically come November (and my refrigerator).

The meals I have choosen for the past couple of weeks are meal plans drafted by a Bally's Fitness program. I've basically been repeating the same meal for two weeks now. Unintentionally tho. For now I've been limited on what I can create for my meals for the week.

Fresh vegetables aand fruits gets expensive but it us well worth it. I eat about 6 meals a day and things are going well. Just need to get a refrigerator.

Keep up the good work on your weight loss. Kudos!

Come upon your page via the HOW forums. Just wanted to encourage you to keep up with your efforts to be more active and more aware of what you eat. This is also something I am working on myself. More than anything I think it is most important to get moving, as latryce said the improved diet will come with that.

Have you found exercise helps with the stress of life and work? I know for me it does, it's my escape, my time for just me and well the treadmill but still..just me.

Keep at it!
