Ugly commute today as it has been raining all day. No end in sight for the foreseeable future. I wish it would have held off for one more day though. We have a contractor coming over this afternoon; actually he should be here any minute, to talk about expanding our patio in the backyard and building a cover. We have no idea how much that will cost and are hoping the quotes are in our ballpark. I would love to have a covered patio so we can barbecue in the rain or snow.
Work was busy today and I sat at my desk too long without getting up for breaks. Not good. For the last few weeks, my lower back and butt have been hurting if I sit for too long. Not sure if it is a pinched nerve or just the weight, but the butt starts to hurt and then rising to stand is painful. I need to take more breaks I suppose. As I mentioned yesterday, I will be working from home tomorrow. For that reason, coming home on Thursday afternoon and knowing that I don’t have to return to the office until Tuesday, feels so good.
Okay, let’s talk about food. I did well again today. Well, it’s not over yet, so maybe this is premature. Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, watermelon and 2 strips of bacon. Tomorrow’s breakfast will be different, in case you are starting to think I eat the same thing every day. I had some almonds for a mid-morning snack. Lunch, was similar to yesterday, cucumbers, olives, ham and watermelon. Dinner will be baked chicken, corn and either a potato or beans. I’ll either have a salad or cook some spinach. I normally wouldn’t want to have a starch and corn.
After stepping on the scale and seeing a gain on Tuesday, I promised myself that I would finish this week off strong no matter what. Staying on track, for four days in a row isn’t something I’ve done in a while. I’ll be honest, it’s getting tougher. I have been thinking of the foods that made me this way and starting to have cravings for some of them. I knew this would happen, so I am not surprised. I will fight through this. It will get tougher before it becomes easier. I may or may not end up with a loss this week, but I will not end up with a gain.
