My scale is going wako

I'm back in town and my scale is showing the damage. After having dessert every nite of the trip and often after lunch too, my wieght went up 8 pounds. Yes, up to 226. I got in 20 miles, but I was eating like a king and I knew it would show.





I'm back on the Atkins diet and this morning I was already down to 223.5. Eggs, salad and the inside of a beef burrito was my diet yesterday.





My foot feels 100% better, but there is still a little bit of discomfort so I didn't run last night. I'll get a short test run in today and hopefully will be back on the streets in full force this week. I do have a 10k this weekend.

My brother in law, Bob Hunter wrote a book.
He's the sports columnist for the Columbus Dispatch and he wrote a book about Chic Harley, the first great Ohio State football player. I read it on the plane ride home. A great read about a little know all american. If you're into turn of the century history or football, this is well work getting. It's hollywood movie material.

Next up: about our Southwest Airlines flight and vacation pictures.

20 miles on vacation? Impressive, Pat.

When I was doing Atkins many years ago, I found the same thing as you did -- get off of it for just a short time and it's puff up like a baloon. Great work getting back on the program.

Sometimes you have to splurge, right? ;-)

Yeah, but it was worth it. You were on vacation... Sounds like you're already back on track and full steam ahead!
