just back from a brisk walk, little over a mile but good breathing rate and a light sweat. I 'binged' today...binging for me. After lunch, I had a piece of peach pie w/vanilla ice cream, then a KitKat right out of the freezer, then a Special Dark choc bar, same right out of the freezer, then a few handfuls of M&M's - plain and peanut, then a string cheese and about 20 light Wheat Thins. Finally quit before I got a sugar buzz or sick. Disgusted w/myself.
Too much running lately, trying to work a second job for some income, all the driving around is costing me gas $ and I don't have time to think or just be. Plus bummed Luke didn't get the job in MN that would have been so good for him.
I gave up my SAD meds Monday and stopped using my light....I don't think my mood is SAD as much as a realistic reaction to being in debt and having a son graduated from college frustrated after 5 months looking for work.
Plus my left ear is achy...don't want or have time to go to the MD. Taking allergy meds as I may just have spring allergies coming on.
Off to Col tomorrow for 2 meetings, then two stops for work on the way home, plus to Hobby Lobby and Staples. A full day.
I'm not giving up on SparkPeople or on myself, though I haven't been a very regular participant the past month. I feel guilty about that as I'd committed to being a leader on the Lutheran team.
Lent begins Wed - ready sort of, have a worship series but the next 5 weeks will be busy w/preaching 2 sermons a week. Scheduled to sub next Friday already.
I've had an apple and a 100 cal bag of almonds - stabilized my blood sugar. Taking it easy tonight as a break. DH and I are spending Monday together as a belated Valentines - looking forward to that.
