Day 15 of 365

Another quick one because work + school + coming up to holidays = killer.

216 lbs even this morning and 34.5″ inches on my waist.

Carrot and kale salad for lunch:

And then a second, “Big Mac” style salad for dinner (ground beef, romaine lettuce, cheese, thousand island dressing, and a tiny bit mustard, all because there was no way I was going to stop anywhere other than the grocery).

Aside from that, I ate, I swear, all the Halloween candy in the office (probably like 10 ‘fun size’ bars of chocolate throughout the day), so, yeah, the sugar cravings were back a bit.

Overall, I’ll just be happy if I make it to Wednesday well rested and in one piece. (Sooooooo busy.) :S

Day 9 of 365 – Monotony the Fabric of My Life and Reasons Why I Sometimes Hate My Camera Phone

Apparently my phone thought it would be hilarious to not save any of the 3-5 pictures that I took of my salad before I dove in and gagged it down. So, I give you a picture of a finished kale salad, with carrots, tomatoes, and ranch dressing, with three empty fun size candy bars, and green tea.

Anyway, my weight was at 219.8 this morning, and my waist was at 34.5″.

What really surprised me was that when I got to school, after work, I actually wanted a Caesar salad. It’s not like I was craving it, but it was more appealing than the pudding parfaits that the salads sit next to in the display case. This is something that virtually *never* happens in my world, especially when stress is high. If anything when I’m under stress I either don’t eat, or I inhale everything with high fructose corn syrup for a three mile radius.(My stress/frustration/anxiety level was pretty much at an eight before class, and was at about a ten as of twenty minutes ago.)

Of course, I did succumb to the cheese bread sticks along with the salad… but also opted for water. Anyone who even barely knows me knows that I usually can’t get through a school night without something caffeinated.

We’ll see of this is a fluke, or if it sticks, regardless, I’m intrigued.

More kale in a bowl, with carrots, tomatoes and, thank the salad gods, ranch dressing, which, may be made by divine, mildly obese angels, somewhere in salad heaven, probably because they know the pain my taste buds are in.

Seriously, if kale didn’t didn’t resist spoilage so well, I would have put what I have down the disposal, and laughed manically in a fit of liberation from its bitter entanglement.

ANYWAY, 222.4 lbs on the scale today, and 35″ on my waist. Which, while slightly cringe worthy in my opinion, isn’t terribly bad considering that I’m still retaining magnificent amounts of water weight, and I ate roughly half a gallon of Death by Chocolate ice cream over the weekend (instead of candy), because Halloween.

Aside from that, I haven’t noticed any particular changes, but, I’m expecting that I’m still anywhere from a few weeks to a few months from that, if I happen to notice any changes at all.

In a whiles, Crocodiles.
