Every once in a while, my department has a breakfast. I bring in the waffle iron, fresh fruit, whipped cream. Others are starting to contribute items to make a real feast. At our last one a few weeks ago, one of our retired teachers was in subbing. I offered him waffles but he declined, explaining that he had started Weight Watchers. Oh, I said, I start that every Monday! He thought that was a great joke... but it wasn't really a joke.
Today is Loser Monday and after a weekend of eating dangerously, I decided to start again with the Diet Challenge. I had oatmeal for breakfast, a pear for a snack at 10:00, and a salad and strawberries for lunch.
And then I got home from work and, as usual, the no-holds-barred snacking started. Sigh. Okay, it's not quite that bad. I had some flavoured popcorn and now supper is in the oven and I'm not hungry. I'm tired, I had to clean up dog crap and puke when I walked in the door, and I have about 80 pages of reading to do for my course. So, when I'm frustrated or overwhelmed, I eat. Does that sound like you, too?
An article I read the other day said that people tend to do better at reaching their goals when they don't make them public. I wonder if talking about this constantly (well, weekly) is actually getting in the way of my weight-loss success. Maybe I should go underground with the diet. Maybe...
Anyway... in other news... I didn't get any more done on my Spring Spell quilt. The only place I can lay out a quilt to pin in this house is on the floor in the OnlyChild's bedroom and... well... you've seen what that looks like. In the other rooms we have hardwood floors, or the rooms are just too small. I'll have to take it to work and lay it out on the floor of a classroom. This is going to be a really busy week, though, so it may have to wait until next week. Too bad. I really wanted to get it done.
Have a great Monday (if that's possible).
