Grey, gloomy weather...

Welcome to the daily Berkshire Weather Report / moan. I have just one word today: Rain.
Ok, I lied about the one word. :-) but not about the rain. It feels like it's personal... a personal attack on my activity levels. Which is possibly a little melodramatic of me considering that the rain stopped around 9:30.
By lunchtime it was just dreary but not actually raining, so I managed to force myself out for a walk. I needed it - tWelcome to the daily Berkshire Weather Report /moan. I have just one word today : Rain.

By lunchtime it was just dreary but not actually raining, so I managed to force myself out for a walk. I needed it - today another company that inhabits the same office building as mine was holding a chocolate sale in the main lobby of the building, and not only did that produce long queues of bargain hunting chocoholics, but it also created an overwhelming smell of sugar and chocolate whenever the door was opened.  In the past when I've not been able to resist eating /binging on cakes /chocolate it's actually been the smell far more than the sight of it that's really got me going - but honestly, even if I wasn't low carbing I think the overpowering, all consuming smell of all that chocolate and sugar would still have been too much for me - genuinely off-putting. I was glad to get out in the fresh air!
I avoided all shops and headed for a nearby park instead. It probably looks much better in nicer weather but still beats road walking hands down. Although there were many clouds of massive insects hanging about the park, I guess because of all the lakes...

Unfortunately I forgot to bring my walking boots with me today. I was thisclose to not going out, but decided to take it easy and just monitor my feet for signs of blistering and I'm glad I did - the soles felt a little burny by the time I got back but otherwise they were fine and I felt much better in the afternoon as a result.

I have to confess to some overeating this evening - nothing like a carb-fueled binge, but extra meatballs and cheese. I don't feel as bad about it as I would after binging on junk, possibly because I feel just a bit too full as opposed to bloated, sweaty and disgusting physically. Still, that won't help me get where I want to be, so I'll have to be aware of that.

Food today:
Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cheese
Lunch: homemade soup
Dinner: Pork Meatballs with homemade tomato sauce and Cauliflower rice
Snacks: homemade pork rinds; babybel cheeseoday another company that inhabits the same office building as mine was holding a chocolate sale in the main lobby of the building, and not only did that produce long queues of bargain hunting chocoholics underfoot, but it also created an overwhelming smell of sugar and chocolate whenever the door was opened.  In the past when I've not been able to resist eating /binging on cakes /chocolate it's actually been the smell far more than the sight of it that's really got me going - but honestly, even if I wasn't low carbing I think the overpowering, all consuming smell of all that chocolate and sugar would still have been too much for me - genuinely off-putting.
