Friday! According to my trusty scale I managed to lose two pounds this week, despite my not-best efforts. At 203, I’m so close to being under 200 pounds for the first time in…a long time. At least since I had the Short Kid and he’s eleven and a half.
It’s tempting to try to hit that 199 next Friday. I could probably do it if I ignore points and just deprive myself. But, because I can’t sustain that, those wouldn’t be “real” pounds lost and I’d probably gain them back, so I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing and I’ll hit it soon enough.
One bad habit I’ve brought back into my life is the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. Even though I can track the large iced coffee points, I can’t track the effect the caffeine has on my metabolism. And I can already feel it chewing up my stomach, which is why I dumped the habit in the first place. How do you calm that stomach? Food. Not a good cycle.
So my goal for the coming week is to skip the Dunkin Donuts runs. What’s yours?
