I'm gonna redo my weigh-in tomorrow. Let's just say I had a bad weekend... catered food, lots of salty snacks, real soda, even on top of a 3-mile walk it all added up to a bad morning on the scale. How can we fluctuate so much??? Let's see if I can clean up some of the mess by tomorrow morning.

Good Long Weekend

I didn't exercise much (oops) but I did cook a lot of healthy, homemade, low-sodium meals. It made a difference - I lost 2.2 pounds this week! Hooray. That's great motivation as I go back to work to keep me on track this week.

Checking In

Well, the annual bad month of September is over and it's time for me to start taking things more seriously again.

Along those lines, I just picked up a copy of the newest "it's not a diet" bestseller - Eat This, Not That!

It looks like it will be a handy little reference guide in figuring out what choices to make at restaurants or in the grocery aisles, with colorful guides on restaurant chain menus and key words to watch out for in preparations or ingredient lists. I've already picked up a few new tips from it on how to interpret menus. It seems like it was worth the 15 bucks on my Target bill.
