Brrr! There were way too many recycle bins to get to the curb this morning! That's what happens when you have a team of girls staying here who are into drinking water from bottles. Love that they chose that over soda mind you! I have to admire Ottawa for it's recycling program. We are fortunate to have blue box, black box, and now green bins. I usually have a worm compost in winter and innevitably it gets infested with flies in the spring and I turn the lot out into the garden. This year we will try the green bin for the winter.
I think our guests brought the cold weather from Alberta where they said they left -50 with wind chill. -40 and they often cancel school buses here. Depends. If there is a long stretch of cold weather people give in and start bundling up with more layers. My rings are sliding all over because my fingers have shrunk with the cold. I'm sure they will puff up as soon as I start defrosting, lol.
I had an emotional/eating morning and thank you thank you to my Spark friends, because I was able to put the food down and log on here and blog the feeling away. However the damage is done. I ate almost a whole day's worth of calories just this morning. I know better than to STOP eating because I am diabetic... so have made a plan to eat lighter for the rest of the day with lots of protein and non starchy veggies. I will be way over my calories tonight. However, that happens. I also figured out why. The triggers included not eating breakfast, bringing a dangerous food in the house, and then letting my emotions make decisions for me when I was trying to figure out a problem that in retrospect was not really my problem to start with. I did well though by logging on here, figuring out what happened, making a plan and forgiving myself. There are consequences. Today is not a cardio day but I will do a half hour on the tread mill and see if I can drink an extra cup of water. In the big picture this is a step back but I am still moving the right direction. Maybe I burned a few extra carbs trying to get my blood circulating again after taking out the garbage, lol. Have a good day fellow sparkers!
