Gotta restart somewhere, right?

Yesterday was an inactive carb-filled bust ... but I woke up this morning and did the pics, scale & measurements anyway. Gotta restart somewhere, right?
Part of my feels like I should go back to LCHF but a bigger part of me (you know - the one that ended up back at 205.2) knows that I can't without losing my ever-loving mind. I'd rejoin Weight Watchers online but I don't have the funds and it's too hard doing it without their tools (I've got a check from upromise that's supposed to be on the way -- and if it ever arrives maybe I'll use some of that towards etools). So right now my only plan is to get moving, not eat every piece of crap food I see, and pray. Hard.

Weekend Things

When I get out of work Friday morning my weekend officially begins and my time is (basically) all mine (more or less) until I have to head back to work Sunday night. I got thinking before I left work this morning that I should come up with Weekend Things. Surely I couldn't screw up too many mini-goals over a 2 day period, right? So the mini-thing was to get home, get John off to school, nap, and then figure out my Weekend Things.

The nap was far too short and while I was debating staying up or trying to sleep for an extra couple of hours, I checked in on Facebook and a friend of mine mentioned Third Day which got me thinking back to the Live Wire Tour of 2004 and what I wouldn't give to be able to actually wear the tshirts I bought the night of the show ...
(with bonus Mac Powell bobblehead)
They're both XLs ... but they're Junior XLs ... and have probably shrunk on top of that. I could probably get one on but I would likely resemble a stuffed sausage. A poorly stuffed sausage.

The thought of sausage (a lovely LCHF food) got me lamenting, yet again, how truly sucktastic my eating has been lately and I got thinking that maybe a round of Egg Fasting might help kick me into gear and stomp the seemingly never-ending cravings for pasta and ice cream. SO I bypassed the extra sleep and schlepped over to the store for some more eggs and cheese (with the snow and slush there was no real walking -- it was truly a schlep). On the way I thought about my Things and decided that I would start out simple: 30 minutes of some sort of exercise each day (which the schlepping took care of today), sticking with the EF for at least the weekend, and doing a new set of photos/measurements either Saturday or Sunday (all dependent on whether or not I can locate my tape measure today or have to go find a new one tomorrow).

So there we go.

So here I sit ...

There's a book to my left with only 50 pages left to go ... and Domino's cheesy bread to my right. I know, I know ... total crap food BUT I realized after I had gotten to work tonight that the last time I had eaten was at work LAST night. Not good. Not unusual, but definitely not good.
I wish I could say I had some great big wonderful goals planned for March. I've been mulling that over for the past week and kept meaning to post but not only did I get anything planned, but I got nothing posted. (Obviously. It's been ... what ... 3 weeks now since my last post?)
At least the book is good. That's something, right?

Not just the blog has been being neglected ... basically the whole damn journey. I've never really bought into the whole idea of Seasonal Affective Disorder but I'm seriously beginning to change my mind. The worse the weather has gotten and the longer it's stayed all sorts of craptastic the further I've slumped. Screw the exercise and eating "right" when it's so much easier to subsist on comfort food and ordering in from the comfort of my pajamas and the big fluffy blankets.

Why oh why is Spring so far away?!?

If I don't snap out of this soon by the time decent weather gets here I'll have undone the past year's worth of work. Granted, that hasn't been much .... but still ....

So I guess I go googling and see if the almighty power of the internet has any good ideas for these next 35+ days (because I know that early "Spring" here can still be pretty damn horrific weather-wise)...
