Jump on the wagon, fall off the wagon. It's a constant struggle for me to stay on that damn wagon, I tell ya! With sickness, Halloween, exhaustion and sheer lack of time, I stopped recording my food and fell right back into bad habits - after 2 days! Horrible. Well, nothing to be done but to get back on the horse. I'm starting again today.

I've discovered that my worst enemy is boredom and stress. Not hunger, not cravings. All day at work I'm reaching for a snack to break one of those two things. I'm a multi-tasker by nature so only having one thing to do is rough for me - I am happiest snacking and working at the same time. I'm trying all sorts of things to get through that desire, from having readily accessible low-calorie snacks like cucumber and celery to just practicing sheer willpower.

They say willpower is a muscle, so I hope that if I keep using it, it'll get stronger.

I'm trying to remind myself that I need to feed my body healthy food and vitamins, not just calories. I need to get in a certain amount of vegetables and fruit a day - not an easy job, but I've decided that I'm just going to go ahead and buy prepared veggies instead of trying to cook everything myself. With my schedule, that leads to disaster, so I might as well spend the extra money and eat well despite myself.

I also got a stand-up desk ordered today, and I have high (ha!) hopes for that to get me in somewhat better shape. Sitting all day for 20 years has been horrible for me.

My goal is to lose 15 lbs by Christmas. It's not that much. 50 days at 1/3 lb a day. Let's see if I can stay on track this time!
