I'm so behind on posting this this week. Work has been unusually crazy the last few days. I've been expending all my brain power there only to come home forget how to do simple tasks like turn on the right burner to heat my food. It's pretty pathetic, I gotta say.  Eric and I went out to see Thor on Saturday, which was awesome. They showed the trailer for Captain America 2 and I got super excited for next April. Captain America is way better than all the other Avengers! We also celebrated Eric's birthday last weekend with a simple but tasty meal and these little delights:

In other news, I've been thinking a lot lately about whether I really want to take running up again. It's been almost two years since I was running with any sort of regularity and my desire to run has waned. I think I'll have to dedicate an entire post to it because there's a lot going on in my head about it. The lack of regular running is partially why my weight has been ever so slowly creeping upwards. It's certainly not the whole reason but it's a conglomeration of disinterest and aggravation that has it creeping more lately. I wish that I could just trust my appetite, eat when I'm hungry and not snarfle everything in sight. But I can't. I'm pretty sure I will never be able to and it's still a tough pill to swallow this many years into maintenance. I know that I'm hung up on this fact right now and nothing I've been doing has shaken me out of that funky state.

So, I think that means that it's time to re-institute a Stickk contract with some drastic negative monetary consequences for failure. The concept of losing money for not doing something simple and easy has always forced me to make better decisions, especially food-based ones. The goal will be to log my food six out of seven days a week for the next 16 weeks and failure to do so each week will cost $50/week. The contract is here and anyone who wants to join as a supporter is appreciated and welcomed. I'm not setting any specific calorie goals right now, I'm just letting myself get back into the habit of being conscious of what I put into my body.
