Well, the past 2 days, I've walked during my lunch break. I only have to time for a 15 to 20 minute walk but I guess it's better'n nuttin - which is what I've been doing. About 8 weeks ago, I joined Weight Watchers....(Hello, my name is Lesley and I'm FAT) Anyway, I do really well for a week or so and then I fall off the weight loss wagon. This jiggly gut is problem for me not only because my son pats it and says, "You full a lunch, Mommy?" HAAAAAAAATE IT! I also suffer from LPR which is reflux that causes the burning in your larynx and pharynx (lovely - I know) beside that it is also a major hinderance in my singing...too much GUT to pick up with them thar sangin muskles!
Okay back to the walking, so yes, I've walked for the last 2 days and then immediately gone to my AP's office and snarfed down a ga-gillion of those tasty little peanut butter and chocolate eggs - and no, they're not even the reese's eggs...just some ol generic brand...none the less tasty though. I do have that little monthly visitor on which to lay some of the blame. Right before "Aunt Polly" arrives....I could eat my weight and yours too in...well this month it's peanut butter and chocolate. Sometimes it's chips and salsa and sometimes it's SEE Food - ya know I SEE it and I EAT it! All these folks around me seem to have the will power - I used to...long time ago I could sit beside a plate of warm chocolate chip cookies and never eat one...now I eat the plate (after the cookies of course).
Last night, there I was just standing there in front of the pantry....door open...scanning....what can I eat? Was I hungry NOOOOOOOOOO, but alas....I stood there wondering WHY I was standing there. I kept saying...just go to bed, you're tired - you're eating to stay awake. Don't fight it - give in to the sleep monkey. Which I did after a GInormous glass of really chocolatey milk! Curses...foiled again!
