I know...

Not blogging. I'm really rethinking things right now, and the urge to write about my weight is nearly gone. Not that my weight is - 160.4 this morning and I'm just pissy about it. But of late, I can't find anything I've done that's at all causative, and without something to build on, well, a) I can't control my weight, and b) that's not very compelling writing.

Stress may be involved. Hormones almost certainly are. Shit sleep is probably playing a role - although last night's sleep seemed to be pretty solid, for the first time in a while.

Anyway, I think I'm taking a hiatus from writing about it. Maybe I'll find the urge again, and maybe not. And I'll try to stop snacking between meals. About the only thing I can think to do that is a bona fide change of something that's not good.

It may be slightly apparent - just slightly - that my compulsion to write this blog has tapered off a bit recently. Guess I don't have anything compelling to say right now. I would like to lose at least 10 pounds. Instead, I seem to be gaining weight. I would like to get more exercise; I find myself at home in the evenings, mentally drained and unwilling to budge. I thought I'd found a way to get better sleep, and that's proved to be elusive as well.

It's very frustrating. And I don't do frustration very well.

In any event, we are trying again - at least, I am, and Lee's not unwilling to go along for the ride - to rein in the eating in the evenings, by having primal "big-ass salads" for dinner all week. I hope we will manage, and I hope that it will be the first of many weeks of eating better. That said, see above.

We shall see.

I did manage to get a lot of walking in over the weekend; we went to watch a professional golf tournament and put in about 6 miles doing so. Hit goal yesterday with a walk after dinner. Really great weather both days - and today, so I hope we will make a third day. Slept fairly well last night, the first in several days - we've been having dog issues, among other things. And yesterday's eating included an omelet, home fries, cashews, a big-ass salad, and ice cream - and, I think, nothing else. So not terrible. For this week, I'm leaving the walnuts at home - I went through a lot of them last week - maybe avoiding them will help. I have cheese and salami with me for today.
