Today started off as a good day. I am a walker, and do enjoy being able to walk outside. It has been such a cold and snowy winter here, (like so many places!) that I have not had a chance to walk outside since December! So I was very happy to take advantage of the warmer day and head out for a walk outside , as opposed to walking on the treadmill.
It felt so good to be outside again!! Granted, there were still several slippery spots, but I just took my time on those areas. I was able to walk for about 40 minutes and then came home and walked on the treadmill for another 25. Yes, that felt good!
Then my SIL called and reported my brother had been admitted to the hospital. Hopefully he can get the help he needs there to get better. Then my SIL called again a bit later in the day and shared some stuff with me that just tore me apart. I won't go into details, but it really upset me. So what did I do? Eat. Nope, it did not make the problems go away and nope, I did not feel better after I ate. What started off as a nice day went too quickly downhill.
I was able to shake off that feeling by dinner and enjoyed a healthy dinner of chicken (cooked on the grill outside!) and green beans. Then a graham cracker for dessert. It feels good to have gained some control back in this day.

I know it is just an expression, but I really hate those days when that is exactly what I feel like doing...eat the kitchen sink! Today is one of those days. I just can't seem to get satisfied. It does not help that we are going out to eat tonight to a place I know nothing about. I always try to plan ahead so I make wise choices, but that is not an option tonight. :(
I was so proud of myself yesterday for a bit. I went to the store and a display right when you walk in the store was a display of Paczki. I have never had one before and I was so tempted to buy some. I finally talked myself out of it and left the store feeling proud of myself for having resisted. But when I got home, again, I could not stop eating. Sometimes I think I might have been better off just getting the one thing I really thought I wanted. But then I think, would one have been enough??

Well, it happened. I woke up in the middle of the night on Thursday and just knew something was not right with my stomach :( :( My husband had the flu two days before and I tried so hard to be extra careful. Clean, clean, clean. Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize. Wash hands, wash sheets. Wore myself out I guess!
Anyway, I did get some kind of bug. My stomach was not happy. So Friday I spent much of the day on the couch doing much of nothing. Fortunately, my stomach did no more revolting, but still was not happy.
So my diet for the day was some saltines, a graham cracker, and a little tiny bit of 7 up. My stomach is still not settled down yet today, so I am just going to let it simmer down. I have not felt hungry yet today. I have been drinking plenty of water. I am going to try to refrain from eating until I feel hunger. I could just nibble on stuff, but this seemed like a good time for me to remember to feed by body when it needs to be fed. Maybe it doesn't need to be fed just yet.
I am feeling better today and have more energy than yesterday. Maybe I will have enough energy to walk on the treadmill for a bit; just a slow walk.
