Today started with a great weigh-in: 5 pounds gone. Normally, that’d put me in a good mood all day long.
But that wasn’t the case this time. We had a downpour at noon, right after I finished my 22-minute walk. In fact, I got sprinkled on a little. As I walked, I thought “I’m feeling dreary” and wondered why.
“You should be having a great day,” I told myself.
Add the gray day to the fact that I had to head back to work, and you have a likely culprit for my not-so-great mood. A two-week vacation is way too long. With each passing day, you want to go back less.
My return to work emphasized the fact that I eat when I’m bored. I had a bit of a bottomless pit day, consuming 30.7 net carbs. (Since I’ve been shooting for 25, that’s high.)
On the plus side, I made a new recipe for lunch — and loved it. I’ll write up a post after I snap a shot of the leftovers. (I was too eager to try it today to pause long enough for a picture.)
Tomorrow’s goals: More steps on the pedometer and fewer carbs consumed.
