Back on track?

After moving to Ireland, I fell off CRON. I still managed to eat reasonably healthy, but a lot of factors in our lifestyle there made it difficult to count my calories. For one, my office provided free gourmet lunches every day. Being a life-nit, I could never pass up a free lunch, especially when it was such high quality deliciousness. While I tried to stick to the vegetarian and vegetable options, I’m pretty sure there was a lot of butter involved. The second factor was the frequent dinners out with friends and colleagues. We had  a very active social life there, which meant eating out quite a lot. And lastly, and probably the biggest contributor to extra calories, was the drink. Jahy-zus, there were many a pint of frosty lagers and ciders consumed in those four years.  I ended up coming back to Canada 30 pounds heavier than when I left.

Anyhow, I’m back now to preparing my own meals and living like a hermit with no friends, so I should have my calories reigned in on the old regime in no time. And to kick it all off, I’ve just pulled a steaming batch of mega muffins out of the oven — ahh that old familiar smell!

Besides diet, I’m also getting way more exercise than I’m used to. I’ve been out skiing quite frequently since my return and I don’t intend to stop!
