Anyhow, on the diet front, I tacked on five pounds since last Tuesday by dint of eating like a pig over the weekend and not doing nearly enough exercise to compensate. I don't expect to lose them as quickly as I put them on, but all the same I'm going to work at being more consistent about journaling. This was where I fell down last week - without the discipline of writing everything down and debiting the daily point total, it's just too easy to pig out. There's no real excuse for that. I have 34 points to work with every day (39 if I spread out the Flexpoints) and if I watch what I eat that's more than enough to get me through the day without gnawing on my arm - or anyone else's.
Having some of the two-point snack bars in my desk and my jacket will also help with that, since there are some long stretches of the day between meals - between lunch and dinner, for example.
With the shoulder tendonitis that's been annoying me, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that my masseuse did a real number on the shoulder tonight, which now feels better than it has in weeks; the bad news is that I'll probably have to ice it, eat ibuprofen, and have her work it fairly regularly until further notice. Well, there are a lot worse ways to spend an hour than having a beautiful brunette make one's muscles relax.
And now that the Twins have come from behind to beat the Blue Jays with a Jacque Jones sayonara homer, it's time to turn in.
