(Pleasant) scale surprise

I know, I know — I said I was going to stay off the scale Thursday morning.

Despite that, I just couldn’t stay away. What can I say? It’s a sickness!

I’m kind of glad I did weigh in, though: I was down a pound from last week.

That’s right. Somehow, some way, I managed to lose a pound despite indulging through another weekend and Monday at work. (I totally ran to Dairy Queen for a pumpkin pie Blizzard Monday night after seeing someone’s photo Tweet. I knew that, since I planned to start eating paleo Tuesday, it was now or never for the Blizzard — and I didn’t want it to be “never.” So I left the office, which I never do anymore, drove to DQ and wolfed it down. Delicious, yes. But so not worth jeopardizing my health.)

That still means I’m up 3 pounds from two weeks ago … and 6 pounds from my “209 by Oct. 15” goal.

But it’s a step in the right direction, so I’m pleased.

The rest of my Thursday was fairly uneventful: I didn’t walk/run, but I did unearth the 5-pound dumbbells for this Pinterest arm workout shared by Glenneth earlier this week.

Breakfast was two fried eggs over leftover sweet potato hash, augmented with diced zucchini and mushrooms. (at about 11 a.m.)

Lunch was a burger, over lettuce, with sauteed onion, bell pepper and mushroom — and a side of sweet potato fries from BK. (at 4 p.m.)

I snacked on a homemade Larabar (5-ish) and, later (8 or 9), a Honeycrisp apple with some homemade nut butter. Then, when I got home from work, I finally heated up my dinner: a bowlful of Slow Cooker Pork Loin from Robb Wolf’s “The Paleo Solution.”

I must have done something wrong, because that stuff has a funky smell. It tastes perfectly fine, though, so I’ll have to deal with the stink. Dinner was capped off with a handful of walnuts and pecans, and now I’m doing a bit of blogging before bed.
