For the second time in about as many weeks, I've had a nightmare where I cause an auto accident. Each time that I awake from one of these dreams, I think "oh good, it was a dream... I didn't wreck the car" and then drift off back to sleep.
I'm not sure what to make of this.
I've been attending a trade conference this week, and trying to watch what I eat. This is proving to be hard, because not only is the sponsor of the conference catering the affair, it's much better than the usual rubber chicken you often see at these events. Heck, there's even some decent microbrewed beer to drink... and I haven't had more than a beer or two beer since July. Alas, tonight I couldn't stay away from the vegetarian potstickers and ate a few too many...
You see, I'm on a diet and trying to lose some weight. I've been moderating my portion sizes, and making sure to exercise 5-6 times a week, almost religiously. It's been working. I won't say how much weight I've lost for fear of jinxing it. Let's just say that my pants rather pleasantly fit a bit better around my waist than they did say, 6 weeks ago.
Thing is, I fear that I'm falling back into bad habits. My weight loss has stalled temporarily... and I wonder if it is because I am letting my portion sizes grow again. I had an objective sense of how much was enough when I started all this... and that seems to be gone for the moment. I had a good "weigh in" at the gym this morning with a lower weight... but who knows... we'll have to see what the evil vegetarian potstickers do to the scale tomorrow morning.
