I feel lazy for some reason, not up to par as normal. My usual activities do not interest me today. Well, now tomorrow is Friday again!!! Another week gone....scary....

For the last 3 days, I have had this feeling as if my mouth were burned, and my right eye really hurts on the right side of it. That feeling like when you were a kid and got a sty in your eye. But no sty. I am also so tired at night that nothing interests me. Wierd for me.
Made the mistake of looking up symptoms on the internet, and there is this strange syndrome some women over 50 tend to get. Autoimmune disease with body not producing enough fluid for mouth and eyes to keep them lubricated. No cure for it. At any rate, I refuse to look any more at the symptoms anymore, maybe they will go away. I am just going to take it easy. Putting hot compresses on my eyes, using Systane, taking hot bath, lighting candles....all this helped!!!
Only good part: food does not taste good when your mouth feels burned, so calories are lower. And, am increasing my water intake big time, thinking maybe that will help.

How can this be? I was just commenting on how great it was to start over on Monday, and now I see tomorrow is another Monday????
Another "self talk" I am initiating is when I am about to reach for candy, I ask myself, "Do I really really want this?" Often, the answer is no. I am reaching out of habit or boredom. If I am really badly craving chocolate, then it is okay for me to have it.
Note: As I have aged, I do not have the intense chocolate cravings I used to have when I was younger. In a way, it is sad. (if you really think about it)

Do not want my bust to be 140, just my weight.
A busy day yesterday, forgot to check back.
Will continue with my plan: before I choose what to eat, or before I put things into my mouth, I will repeat to myself: scale to read 140, scale to read 140.
Report 10:30 am -- I just cut butter up into half tablespoon pats and put in the refrigerator. Do not deprive yourself of something you love, but just limit it.

I love each fresh new morning. It just makes me feel so good.
Going to try my mental awareness plan today, again. I went over my calories yesterday, but that was okay, because I had a really special dinner. I did very well up to dinner time, and that is better than nothing!!!
So, I know I am going out for lunch, but it is with a skinny person who never eats much, and so that part will be easy.
The main thing is controlling dinner portions. I am having my mom for dinner and she eats hardly anything, so once more, today I should get under 2000 calories.
I will check back tonight and see.
