Just a Peek...

Things are going alright for me right now. Food intake has been healthy (mostly). Except for the burger I had last night for supper but it was the first red meat I've had in over a week (and I'm not counting the burger on the road on Saturday, when traveling that doesn't count, right?) and it was 93/7 lean. I even had it on light bread at 35 calories per slice so that was good. Actually the burger wasn't all that bad after all. But then I did have a chocolate chip cookie last night. It was one of those "Mini" mixes and boy was it good. It kept me from snacking all evening.

I've been hitting the bed early (for me) lately. I'm worn out by 10:00 and that is very odd. Course I'm up and wide awake early too so maybe my sleep schedule is just changing. When I get up that early it makes for a very loooonnnngggg day. And now that it is getting dark earlier I start getting sleepy very soon after dark. I hate (as I'm sure you do too) switching back and forth between regular time and daylight savings time. I just wish they'd pick one and stick with it. I don't care which one they pick as long as it stays the same.

Keeping my scales covered has really helped me from obsessing over my eating. But I keep thinking that maybe I should take a peek just to make sure things aren't going in the wrong direction (especially after the cookie last night). Think I'll take a peek, hold on while I go check....................cool, they're staying the same. Whew!!

Have a great week getting ready for Turkey Day.

I keep thinking the same things about my scales. Especially after I was up a pound last week. I didn't check my weight all last week and I gained a pound. I'm afraid I might be gaining by not checking on them. But maybe I'm not. Ugh!

Deep breathe, just keep eating your points and exercising more and you'll be fine, Cara.

Good advise from Cara. I was up 1.2 lbs last night but I haven't been writing anything down. I've got to get back to basics. I think red meat is o.k. in moderation but I just don't care for it. If I don't get back to you before Thanksgiving, have a great one. Any special plans? Your daughters coming home?

Scales...who knows what to do. You sound like you are doing a great job. Is it still snowy there? Have a great Thanksgiving if I don't get back to ya.

Sounds like giving in a bit to the cravings are not hurting and ALSO helping with other cravings and urges!

I'm not sure "travel burgers" are covered in the rules, but I'll use them if you will. :)

I do the mini-treat thing, too. It helps to have a itty bitty indulgence to keep from going overboard. It works for me, anyway.

Did you get an ice storm?
