I have an awful confession to make, yesterday, I ate like a pig!!!
I have no idea what was wrong with me!!! I started out good, had some oatmeal, then, I had cheese and crackers and more cheese and crackers, and a beef stick and then I had a sandwich, with more cheese!!
And then I had sausage and yogurt and milk, and I am sure I had some more I cant recall.
I just couldnt stop snacking.
I have done much better today. So far.
I wonder what it was, boredom, or was I really hungry?
So, we still have no water, it came back on last night very briefly, not long enough to shower, the hot water heater didnt even have time to fill up.
I went to my sons this morning, he is out of town and he had a little water, but the pressure was so low.
So my very dear friend invited me to her house to shower and it felt so good to finally have clean hair, that is a pet peeve of mine, I cant stand to go more than 2 days without washing my hair, I got apey.
I was able to collect a little water and we have had to carry in water.
The most angering part of this, is that the water company is giving so many differing stories as to the problem.
The chemical spill in West Va had them cutting off water to their communities, this has been thrown around as a possible reason.
Then there was the head of the water company who said it was due to frozen lines breaking and leaking, then there was the story about a pump gone bad.
Either way, we still have no water.
I guess you really just dont know what you have until you no longer have it.
Neighbors as close as 2 miles have water and neighbors 2 miles in the other direction do not.
Hit and miss.
I am really hoping to see water soon, but until then, I am just hoping to stay out of the kitchen snacking today.
I am going to fix a good healthy meal and watch football and wish the day was warm and sunny and that there was no wind and hopefully tomorrow the day will be better for a good long walk.

Waking early in the morning to the sound of heavy rain falling is such a lovely feeling.
You snuggle back down deep under the warm blankets and plan to sleep a little longer or at least lay semi-awake, listening to the soothing sound.
Then you realize, this means, NO WALK!!!
I know some will say, what, why not? Just go walk in the rain. Maybe, but the track I walk on is slick when wet.
I walked day before yesterday and it was still pretty frozen hard, so it was easy to walk on, then yesterday after the thaw, it was slick in spots.
I dont know what this red coating paint type substance is they put over the track, but its a real waste.
Walking on the old concrete underneath is much safer.
But anyway, water water water. And we have none.
No one in my community has water, for miles and miles, if you are on the county water, you are dry!!!
I was luckier than some, I had water up until last night around 8pm.
Had walked yesterday, went to the tanning bed, came home and cleaned and took the dog out and had planned to shower later, then the water went down so low, I was afraid to use the hot water.
Throwed the breaker on the hot water heater and collected as much water in pots and pans as was able to and filled up my coffee pot for my morning coffee.
So, I guess my day will consist of sitting inside, checking the faucet from time to time, hoping for a trickle!!!
Got on the scale today, even though it isnt my regular weigh day, and I am the same, no change.
But overall, I am satisfied with the number.
It isnt as high as it was and I know if I keep walking and eating healthy, it will eventually creep back down.
One final thought, this puppy really needs a bath, wonder if shes saying the same about me???

It is odd when you go over your calories, and yet, really didnt eat that much food.
I sat and looked at my food for the day and I ate nearly 1700 calories, and yet, I didnt eat any junk.
I had a healthy lunch and a healthy dinner and greek yogurt to snack and skim milk.
I suppose I could have forgone the cheese string or maybe cut out one serving of milk.
But in trying to increase my vitamin d and calcium, by food, I cant see that being possible.
So, I am not going to fret over it.
I had no junk food today and I got in a 30 minute walk.
This is my second day of walking and hopefully I can keep it up, even though we are expecting rain tonight.
It was overall a good day.
Will be more watchful tomorrow and see where those extra calories can be cut.

Another better day today. The sun is actually out and right now its up to around 43 degrees.
I went walking, only for 30 minutes, but not too bad considering I had set a goal of 20 minutes.
It was cold and alot of ice around the track, but I didnt mind, after 20 minutes I looked at my phone and couldnt believe I had already walked that long.
So, I kept going.
Then I went to the tanning bed, hopefully these warm sunny days will hang around and I will be able to walk a little more.
Now, got alot of housework to get started on and just really going to try to stay on track today .
Sunshine, even without heat can really lift my mood.

So, today, so far, I am feeling a little better, have been able to open up the curtains to see a little sun out there, while it has no heat with it, at least it gives me the feeling that life isnt so dark and bleak.
It is supposed to warm up some and I am hoping by about 1pm today I can get my car doors open and get out for awhile.
Have alot I need to be doing, but all I want to be doing is walking and I am hoping with temps rumored to reach 40 tomorrow, I will be able to, even if its a short quick walk.
I know my last few blogs have been Debbie Downers. It has alot to do with the weather.
I have to get some sun somehow someway. So if that means the tanning bed at least its better than none, for 15 minutes anyway.
As far as eating goes, well I wont lie, I have been eating alot of comfort foods the last few days, cheese and cornbread and macaroni.
All of that is gone now and I am going grocery shopping Friday and stock up on veggies and protein.
I am so ready to get out of this funk and get myself back on that track.
Today is 1 year anniversary of the day I broke my foot. I remember that sound, I remember I was on the walking track, I was at the height of my weight loss, I remember weighing in that morning and I remember the number and I also know I am up 16 lbs today.
I dont want to dwell on the fact I have to lose that 16 lbs just to get back to where I left off.
So, I am just going to focus one day and one pound at a time and getting in shape again.
I know getting back to walking, I am guessing its been close to 6 weeks or longer since I did walk, its going to be slow going, and few and far between with this cold weather.
I do not do well in cold and wish I lived in a warmer climate.
But I know spring will be here one day and the sun will come with it and I will be able to walk and feel better and get my vitamin d back up and hopefully lose some weight.
This is afterall my goal, to lose weight, I want to be healthy and feel good and live a long life, but overall, my goal is to lose more weight.
