Summer Work & Weight Loss

Glazed Donut

This summer I had all the best intentions of losing more weight.  I even bought a lunch bag, which came with an ice pack, to carry my food to work.  I think most of you can tell from the picture above where this blog post is going.

My plans did not turn out the way I would have liked.  I ended up stopping at a Dunkin’ Donuts every morning before my early morning classes for a donut and medium coffee.  To make matters worse, my workplace often had free donuts for everyone.  The rest of the day went a little better.  However, I am certain I went well over my number of calories for the day.

Right now, I crave carbs.  I have gained about 5 pounds over the summer.  I bought a bunch of low-carb food this week and am trying to get back on track.  I usually fly to see my family during Christmas vacation, so I want to lose about 10 lbs by that time.   A major stumbling block could be arriving in the fall.  I have been scheduled to teach an 8am course again.
