Sitting in "But"s ville, Florida USA

Monday, July 09, 2018

Well, here it is July 9th....... still in a holding pattern....... still haven't gotten back on the band wagon. But... (always the "but") haven't gained, and am watching the scales carefully.

I am consuming way more carbs than I should be, being lured back into the lovely grainy crunchy whole wheat toasted dinner rolls that are just so yummy with a bowl of soup or big salad. And I crave that pizza that has my name on it (although I only have my DiGiorno Thin and Crispy frozen pizza's which are a fraction of regular pizza calories. I have come to love them and the idea of a regular pizza is something I cringe at, not only because of the calorie count, but because of all that thick cheese and crust. Weird, right? That I don't want all that thick crust, sauce and cheese? I guess if I was out with friends and they ordered one I wouldn't eat it with the rest of them, but given a personal choice, I head to the grocery store freezer department and get that DiGiorno and curse if they don't have my pizza.

I made pasta last week, angel hair with sauce. I did actually downsize the serving that I would have eaten before to a more reasonable one, and then freeze the rest, but (yes, the "but") it was still pasta and more than I should have consumed.

Oh, and the lovely glasses of wine....... heaven! emoticon

AND I am having deserts, craving chocolate and giving in more than I should. I try and find healthier alternatives; granola bars with chocolate chips, trail mix, halo mint chip ice cream (well, they call it ice cream), stuff like that. Shouldn't be giving into the cravings. Hard road to back out of, I know that. but...... (there's that "but" again).

I'm not exercising as much as I should be. We are in the rainy season here in Florida, so many days it is raining in the afternoon so hard to take that long walk with the puppy or it's 110 degree heat index. Yeah, I bought a treadmill for just such days, but you know what's happened with that strategy!

So, I'm on a very slippery slope and hanging on. I think I'm doing a fairly good job "but" I really need to get off the slope and back onto the trail. I've come so far, it's just that I feel good, look good, better than I have in 15 years, so it's kinda hard to get back on the path. I'm not feeling the strong motivation I need, and not sure where I'm going to get that "stick with it" that I need for the long haul of 20 lbs dedication.

    I've been in "buts-ville" many times. Sometimes I think I'll be there permanently, but I always get moving when I remember how good it felt to get back into my routine and how much I owe it to myself. Don't worry, I'm sure it's just a temporary detour.
