A new day

So I worked again today. Woke up sick, dragged myself to work, stayed sick, got my period, worked hard, came home, cleaned the kitchen, found a spot on the big chair, and curled up with my laptop.

Major accomplishment I am most proud of: I followed my diet to the letter the past two days. No carbs, baby.

And unlike the last time I kicked the carbs, I was not muddled or foggy, but remarkably clear in the head. I honestly feel healthier without them in my body.

It was very trying, though, walking past all the goodies on the counter in the back room at work all day. The pigs-in-a-blanket were particularly tempting. But although I forgot to bring my protein shakes to keep me filled up between meals, I didn’t succumb to the weenies’ allure.

It’s a small thing, but I am proud of myself. I am doing something good for my body and head. And I can do it.

I can do this. I will lose the four or five pounds I gained back over the holiday, then I will proceed to the finish line. I will lose a total of 33 pounds. That was my original goal and I see no reason to revise it.

I must stay focused. Tomorrow, I start to clean the holiday leftovers out of the kitchen. And I will begin the dismantling of Christmas around this house. I’m done. Time to get back to normal life.

Happy new year.
