In a way, it’s almost comforting to be back to work after a three day weekend.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I certainly enjoyed having the day off, and I’d have taken the whole week if I had the vacation time to spare. But, it’s still nice to be back on a routine. Things sort of fell apart over the weekend, after all, and it’ll be good to be back on the old routine of walking and exercising and the like. I rather threw caution (and my diet and exercise goals) to the wind over the long weekend, and I plan to use the rest of the week to get myself back on track.
To be honest, though, it isn’t all bad news. Despite my unpleasant surprise when I stepped on the scales Sunday, I’m still seeing some progress. Specifically, my waist is getting a little smaller. How do I know? Well, recently my wife purchased some new underwear for me (since the old ones were getting comically loose on me). They were a 48 waist, and slightly too tight when I first tried them on. But they fit, now. Comfortably.
Good sign, right?
Yeah, I thought so too.
