Karen get’s stuck and blames the Nutella

Still only 10 pounds down.  Actually, slightly wavering at losing some ground, and I blame the Nutella.

2 Tablespoons of Nutella = 10 points

Conclusion?  Nutella is evil. 

Remember my previous rant about “I’m savory not sweet!”  Well… I had forgotten all about my addiction to sweet… or perhaps I was lulled into a full sense of security by my 10 pound weight loss.

I had forgotten that I have a sweet switch and when it’s turned on I struggle to wrestle myself into submission.  And it’s really submission, it’s a fight… a fight that I lost, this week.

Monday is “lunch for the office day”.  This Monday it was pizza and like a good girl I recorded the points (leaning towards over estimation) of the Thai Chili Chicken Pizza slice that I ate. It was delicious, it was spicy and filling.  BUT… there was a dessert pie.  If you haven’t heard of a dessert pie, let me describe it to you…  Pizza crust, slathered with Nutella, topped with Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas and drizzled with vanilla icing.

This dessert pie vies for first place with rice crispies in the top spot for my own personal kryptonite. 

The fact is, I KNOW I’m not strong enough to resist.  And yet… I am pulled into the swirling vortex of my addiction to sweet deliciousness.

My sister Annie talks about her sustainable lifestyle.  She talks about her end result and wanting to create a new “normal”.  The way she wants to life while sustaining a healthy lifestyle and weight with the freedom to… live.

I just want to lose the weight, to feel lighter, have more energy and manage my weight as I age so that my body can deal with the aging processes more easily…  I feel like the whole “sustainability” will need to kick in when I get closer to my goal.

However, I clearly can’t be trusted to make good decisions, at least not when the shelves filled with halloween candy advertising their sweet allure.  AND the dessert pizza, completely blindsided me…

So HOW!?!?!?!?!?!?

I don’t know about you, but I sit at my desk for up to 8 hours a day. (well, not exactly sit, my desk also pops up so I can stand) but still… it’s 8 hours of constant, thinking, answering phones, interruptions, having people make their problem or issue more urgent and more important than anything else in my life.

Today… I’m bringing sneakers

Today… I am going to schedule my food. Breakfast, snack, lunch snack leave for home and dinner….  and I’m going to sprinkle in 2 -10 minute breaks. 

Today… I’m going to re-invest myself into my weight loss… and get back on track.  It’s Wednesday.  I have 5 full days to make up for the NUTELLA DEBACLE as I call it in my head.
