Well, it is the eleventh day of this virus, and I am getting pretty sick of it. Then I think of the people in Japan, and well, my little problem is so petty.
I have not been able to do all the things I normally do for my 93 year old mother. And sadly, it is such a relief!!! Being sick has been a reprieve. What does that mean? Whatever it means, it is not good.

Being sick combined with daylight savings time has upset my biological clock. I woke up at 9am this morning. Now it is 10 a.m. already, after fiddling with the computer. I hear people say,"oh I wasted so much time on the computer" I do not feel like this is a waste of time because I enjoy it so much. Whether I am surfing the internet about a topic that interests me, or playing these point games on Spark, which influence me to eat less, which is a good thing, well, why would this be a waste of time anymore than playing golf or canasta???
What is a waste of time is when you do something mindless when you have important other things to do.
I feel that I have spent most of my time my entire life in a way that was not "wasted". But then, I do not watch television!!!

Well, I lost 2 lbs. How? by eating whatever really appealed to me!!! Because I was sick with a bad virus, I could not eat very much. So, it is all about portion control. ha ha
If I craved a brownie, I ate a brownie. (but only one) If I craved whole milk, I drank whole milk (but it ran out and I could not get more) If I was bored and made chocolate chip cookies, I made them (but eating the dough did not have the appeal it usually does, and I was too tired to cook the entire batch, so froze the dough)
Also, I had no alcohol, did not eat out, did not exercise, have just been home all week. Yet I lost 2 lbs.
Also I was alone all week. No one wanted to catch what I got. When you eat with other people, you always eat more!!!
This is not the best way to lose weight. Now, the trick will be to keep it off when I go back to my regular lifestyle.

Where did the week go? I see I blogged on Monday, and now it is Friday already. I got a really bad virus, and I am just eating comfort foods, sort of like snacking all day long. Today I am going to do Spark once more.
I have this sinus pain and feel overwhelmingly tired, not even well enough to go to the mailbox!!
I know the source of this. I overdid things on Sunday. I got totally over-tired. Those viruses are all around us, and if we pace ourselves, we are less likely to get them. But my resistance was down and it got me.
Lesson Learned: stop when you know you have had enough. Applies to eating as well as activities.

Another Monday morning; another new start. I love starting over!!!
Wore the wrong shoes yesterday for a shopping trip, and now not sure if I will be able to go for my walk. I feel wiped out and it is only 6:30 am. Slept all night, though.
Feel like I have got a good breakfast habit nailed down. (except for today, just ate a brownie) One habit at a time!!! That could be a mantra. We are changing habits here.
I still cannot seem to go under eating 2000 to 2200 calories a day. At least I am recording all my foods. According to the nutrition tracker many days I am "under" for things like protein, fiber, vitamin C, D, B12. I should review my trackers one of these days.
