Out of Pocket

I've been a little out of my routine this week.  We are getting a new file server at work so that has kept me busy.  Today I was *gasp* without a computer!  I feel so out of touch.  I've been doing great with my eating although I'm not expecting much at my Saturday weigh in.  I have not put in the time with exercise.  I think once I get that piece of the puzzle in place the scales will move downward again.

Last night 65MD and I got the calendar out and penciled in the various trips, faculty gatherings and miscellaneous eating occasions coming up.  We have something almost every week between now and mid-October!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That means I have really got to kick it while I can.  I think I can.  We have two week long trips/seminars, but everything else is a one time thing.  Since I have this knowledge so far in advance I can plan accordingly.  I can trim calories here & there and add a few more minutes on the stair stepper.

Mostly, I'm adjusting my expectations.  I have no target date for getting to my goal weight.  I need to learn how to eat in situations like this for the rest of my life.  This is as good a time as any to learn.  I'll do the best I can and deal with what happens as it comes.


  1. I like your attitude - you know what obstacles are likely ahead and you're making your plan to work around them! Awesome!

  2. Yes, fall always brings a myriad of challenges, doesn't it? And just think, Christmas is right behind it. LOL! You've got a really good attitude right now. I like it!

  3. obviously plan what you can and kick it when you can but you can be 100% on plan in most resturants (dinner parties are another matter) then you have to use the water trick and take a "bite" of what's offered. by all means adjust your expectations but don't sell yourself short in the process you're capable of whatever you set your mind to! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  4. Every week! Yikes. I think planning is a great idea.
