Ok… Well my NYC trip was cancelled :(. But the Chicago trip is still on.
I get back from Chicago on Thursday night. So beginning Friday morning I OFFICIALLY begin a concerted effort to knock off around 7 of the 10 pounds I gained over the summer.
I will weigh in Friday… Yeah… Even WITH the travel bloat!
I am going to post my progress every day of carbs eaten, etc… Gotta stay on track!
I will be in serious “induction” for 14 to 21 days… That should be enough to get over the cravings, etc… I would guess I can knock off at least 5 pounds in that time frame.
Dear Summer of Carbs,
We had fun, you and I. We had cake. We had ice cream. We had noodles. We had more cake. And then there was that cake. And once I had the cake, then I figured, what the hell, let’s have some cake.
So… it is with regret that I must tell you, dear carbs, that with you I am like a junkie with smack. I cannot handle you in moderation. You trigger the binges, you do. One piece of cake is simply not a workable proposition for me.
So, alas, I will be be giving you back up, my delicious little carby morsels.
Beginning October 1. (Because seriously, I am going to Chicago on 9/24 and I can’t go there without trying the pizza.)
But after that? It’s back to eggs, cheese, nuts, meat, yogurt… (with copious low carb veg too).
I was fine with gaining some weight… some… but 10 was a few more pounds than I wanted, and the larger sized clothes are not fitting the way they should.
So with the end of summer, comes the end of carb-o-palooza… I was kinda missing my pork rinds anyway 🙂
And I am doing my part.
Last night… Corned beef on rye and brownie cheesecake.
Tonight… some kind of crappy storefront ethnic food!
And – like as not – a stop on the way back fro cake or something 🙂
Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!
Ate half a peach crumble muffin from Panera today that someone brought in and left in the break room (with a bunch of other stuff). Spent every bite thinking about how “wrong” I was and feeling guilty. So completely failed I enjoy it.
Really need to work on that.
That is all.
(Not “The Oatmeal”, which I also love, but not quite as much as I love ACTUAL oatmeal.)
