What I've Learned This Week
Thursday, February 10, 2011
1. Sunshine is good stuff - if you can't get any, excercise is almost as good a mood booster.
2. Chocolate cake, even if a lowfat recipe, is still chocolate cake.
3. Pasta with cheese sauce, even if a Cooking Light recipe, is still pasta with cheese sauce.
I think the winter blues have set in. My cravings for comfort food abound, and I am exhausted- which is probably just hormonal, but I can guarantee it would be less noticiable in any other season. Plus, having eaten healthy foods for so long now, pasta just makes me feel crappy.
There is no cure for "wanting spring when it's winter", because unless you can get on a plane and fly somewhere springlike, it's still going to be winter. However, I think a short walk around the yard today to stare sternly at any daffodils poking up may speed things along. Or at least, that's what I tell myself.
