Below you will find a comment I posted on Swistle's Blog in response to her latest entry regarding buttery & delicious pecan rolls made for her by her mother:
I am running in circles ripping my hair out as my "diet" has gone south in the last few weeks and what clothing used to be loose is now tight again and all I want to do is eat and now there are delicious pecan rolls sent straight from the devil himself to taunt me.
I am really having a rough time staying on the wagon these last 3 weeks. First: I ate because I was stressed about my boards. Second: I ate because I was nervous about what the results of my boards would be. Third: I ate because I was celebrating the passing of my boards. Now: I am stuck in the cycle of bad eating habits. I was JUST getting to the point where I wasn't having night sweats and withdrawal symptoms from my sugar cutbacks. DAMN IT! The positive: I continue with yoga 4-5 times per week and get at least one day of cardio in. I hope to increase my cardio..but I am also starting a wild and crazy new work schedule so, I'll give myself some time to adjust.
So there you go. An update. Painfully & obviously absent? A weigh in. Don't expect one until the Monday, March 24th. So there. Hmmph.
