Night time eating continues to be a problem. I need to find things to do in the evenings so I don't snack while I read.

The next 4 days at the cabin will be a challenge .... no gym and lots of time to relax with a book and probably something to munch on!

I found a pound cake that I made a couple months ago in the freezer while looking for something else. Here comes the lightly warmed cake with my homemade plum jam and some cold ice cream.....................................

It's Friday -- date night -- so we'll be eating out. I always have good intentions of making good choices, but then reading the menu sometimes changes my mind!

Well, yesterday I had a town meeting at dinner time. At 8pm I ate some store bought chinese (half portion) and a doughnut!
There is something about unstructured mealtime and grab and go at the store that will mess with the brain....................

I'm trying to schedule gym time in for my third session of s/t for the week -- tomorrow I have to play for a funeral at 11, and Saturday I'm playing for a wedding. I think I can squeeze it in Saturday morning.

ME!
After the gym the leftover biscuits I made for dinner the other night were calling to me along with the ham we got at the store yesterday. I made ham and biscuits rather than eating my usual cereal.
Now I wonder if the cereal would actually have been worse. Hum.

The last two days I felt wonky and today is a bit better. When I am like that I have low energy and HAVE to make myself get up and about. Even though I got in steps and went to the gym, it takes a tole on the calorie energy burning.

I survived yesterday. Today's obstacle will be getting exercise. It is cold, rainy and windy outside - just miserable. I will have to pump myself up for a trip to the gym if I'm to get my cardio in.

A strange day. I feel like a slug. The weather is cool and overcast and the wind has been blowing all day. Took a short walk and other than that I have not done anything active today.
Seems I also hurt my shoulder and hip at the gym yesterday.
Well, blah, blah, blah. Sorry for the attitude.

Today it's no walk. I had a busy day with the gym, shopping, visiting a shut-in friend, combined with the intermittent rain it has not been a good walking day for me.
But healthy food choices today will help offset this hump.

Cat you and I are woven of the same cloth. Sweets and Carbs are my downfall as well and I struggle on a daily basis with it. I really wonder if I will ever conquer the cravings and/or addiction but I'm sure going to give it my best shot to get down to my goal weight and then maintain FOREVER!!

It's frustrating that at our age it is just almost impossible to lose! Only thing I can think of, Cat, is to try changing things up a bit if you haven't already. Today my biggest obstacle may be the weather, as I'm wanting an outside walk, but it looks like a thunderstorm could begin at any minute.

Sweets and carbs.
Even though I'm walking, hitting the gym 3x's a week, gardening, I am not losing any weight.
Not sure what's holding me back from at least dropping a couple pounds with all this activity.

I enjoyed a piece of cake my friend brought me knowing it wasn't on my meal plan for the day.
A bigger salad and much less carbs the rest of the day to adjust.

I haven't had any issue lately. I am spending more time outside due to the warmer and sunny weather. Getting in gardening and sprucing up the yard and that takes energy, calories, and my attention away from the kitchen.

We had brunch!! I had two THIN slices of toast, 1 egg, 1 white, 1 sausage and some strawberries and canteloupe. Likely a cup of each, didn't measure!! Nothing more for me until dinner BUT I am enjoying a vodka diet coke after a nice long walk with daughter. There is pie for dessert for dinner but I think I shall be able to pass on that pretty easily. The ice cream could be an obstacle though!! I will give it my best shot.

Today I will watch my food intake at the memorial. That's not really hard for me as I have an aversion to eating food prepared by people I do not know, in a kitchen I am unsure of its cleanliness. Sounds OCD? It probably is.

I think it's not so much the food but the lack of exercise that stalls me. I therefore commit to making time for a walk today! With spring here, I plan to get my daily walking routine back.

I grazed my way through Costco today. At least I was discerning about what I chose to eat.
I believe that if I stopped doing that and stopped eating out all together that I could easily lose ten pounds with no other modifications. Think I will make an effort to do this.
