Stuck, Stuck, Stuck and More Ramblings

This was not a good week for eating. I was out of town on business all week, at of all places the State Fair. That means my food choices were quite challenging. All the wrong things. I got stuck so many times this week it was not even funny. This morning I had a heck of a sliming episode after eating a chewy granola bar. That did not go well, I slimed for a good half hour before things moved along and I couldn't get a good PB to help things either. I just had to wait it out and it was quite painful.

Even after all that, I still managed to stay pretty much the same on the scale, which is surprising. I was really expecting it to be higher, but instead I managed to hold steady at 228. I didn't lose any but at least I didn't gain. Since I was gone all week, that also messed up my walking and now the weather is getting chilly and we are losing more daylight every day, so wanting to get up and walk is not too appealing. I will need to figure something else out I guess. May be time for the gym or some other indoors activities.

So my goal for this week is just to behave as far as eating is concerned. Since I have been gone for a week, my fridge is empty so I need to do some grocery shopping and choose some good foods that won't get stuck. I need to get back into a usual routine again. I get the feeling that losing pounds may be a real challenge in the next weeks as I try to find a new routine of both eating right and exercising.


  1. I'm sure you will find something that will work for you on both fronts. Sending good vibes your way.

  2. Routine.....I need routine too! Good luck!

  3. I need a routine too AND a grocery store visit!

  4. The Texas State fair is about a month away and we go every year. I am trying to make my plan now so that I don't go crazy when I get there. Not gaining is always a benefit after a week when you feel like you haven't done your best.
