9/23: Yesterday was difficult to stay "on plan" as hubby and I had a 25th anniversary party to attend. I tried to stick to healthy snacking and I was fairly successful. The near plan buster was watching my grandson, last night, too. I fixed him a small bowl of cookies & cream frozen yogurt with strawberries. He ate a few nibbles and I finished it. It was not large, but my mind kept wandering back to the fact that I had a whole quart of frozen yogurt in the freezer. I won the battle of willpower though. Yeah-for me!! I did not go back for seconds. Today, I weighed in and expected to see no weight loss or if lucky I would see no gain. It was better than no gain though; I actually recorded weight loss, so I am on target (but certainly not ahead of the curve) to make my next mini-goal. Wish me luck on the next 2 pounds. I have been averaging slightly more than 2 pounds a week, so I should be fine, if I stay "on plan" for food and exercise.

Doesn't the call of food stink? I can be perfectly happy and then all of a sudden it's like, "OMG there are Oreos in the kitchen." That's when it becomes an inner battle.

Yay on being on target and 2 pounds a week! I haven't gotten on the scale in over a month. I'm too afraid too. I know I've put on weight, but my jeans still fit, so it can't be that much more. I'm afraid of seeing that my efforts aren't working either. I plan on doing a weigh in on October 1st to start fresh. :)

9/24: Yesterday was another tough day at work. The good thing about being "over the top" busy at work is that I don't have time to snack. I barely had time for lunch. I did not exercise yesterday, but I did stay on plan for food. Now, I am just taking everything day by day with the hope of surviving our fiscal year-end workload without any weight gain.

Yesterday (9/26) I did not exercise again. Sadly, this is going to be the norm, during the next few weeks. Boy, I wish I could win the lottery and give up on working. I did eat on plan though, so that's a good thing.

Tuesday (9/28) was another extra long work day, 15 hours. I was able to stay on plan for food. Exercise wasn't exactly on plan, but I did get in a 1.5 miles walk. Weight is holding. Note to self: holding is better than gaining. Surprise of the day: former coworker stopped by and commented on my weight loss. Great motivation.

Wednesday (9/29) was another long work day, 10 hours. I was able to stay on plan for food with only one little slip; I nibbled a handful of Doritos. Even though they are still calling my name as I type this, I promise to not eat any more. I am too tired to keep up a solid exercise plan, but I did walk 1.5 miles again today at lunch with a coworker. Weight saw a slight drop. I might just make my goal on Friday. Wish me luck!!

Thursday (9/30) was another long work day, 10 hours. It included lunch out with a former co-worker and a corporate dinner. With that said, I was able to start the day with 30 minutes on the treadmill and end the day saying, "I stayed on plan." Yeah. I only had a side salad at lunch and avoided the cocktails and appetizers at the dinner function. Again, yeah me.

Friday morning (10/01), I made my mini-goal for Sept. Next mini-goal for the month of October is 10 more pounds. November 1st, here I come. The next goal will be the hardest so far, because work will remain hectic through October and my newest granddaughter is due in late October. Between work and celebrations, staying "on plan" will be a huge challenge.
