It's been a couple weeks since I updated, because I was on both personal and business travel. I knew I'd get knocked off the beam a bit, especially with a 4 day weekend on Cape Cod that's an annual getaway with a lot of good food and wine. The business trip to Florida was easier to handle, (except for the free flowing margaritas!) although very little exercise was done, and a lot of time just sitting in meetings and planes. But it seems I didn't do too bad, and weighing in yesterday showed that I only gained a half pound. Which, again, is consistent with my strategy of going slow and steady: if I gain a pound, it's easier to lose it quickly, rather than jumping off and gaining 3-5, and then just losing steam altogether. I'm back on track this week. Just need to avoid the Halloween candy that's showing up everywhere...
