The past few days I've been feeling blah and really tired when I get home from work. I felt too lazy to do the dishes, too lazy to do laundry. All I wanted to do was not do anything let alone make dinner for us.
DH has been great about picking up the slack but yesterday I made a plan. Chicken Sausage, Peppers and onions (peppers from the farmers market!!!) As I started slicing up the onions I noticed how pretty they are the purple. Then I stared slicing up the peppers. Purple and yellow and red combined in a bowl. My son came over and tried the raw peppers. (It was one of the things I just craved when I was pregnant with him.)
Beautiful colors sizzeling in the pan.
Contrast to the dull, color of my lunch and snacks. No fruits or veggie snacks just stuff that wasn't really that great.
After my son went to bed I went out for a walk then I realised I had the C25K program on my phone why not try it. So I did for about 12 min. I might have gone longer if I had something to attach the phone to my arm so I didn't have to hold it and if it wasn't so dark out.
I am starting to connect good choices with feeling good and having energy. This week I've been very lenient on myself because I am facing a loss of employment, but, on the other hand, if I were to go out on an interview does that mean that I shouldn't try my best? Or that I should be lenient and go in jeans and a t-shirt? No. Feeling bad is not an acceptable excuse to not take care of myself.
My sister is having a party tonight to say goodbye. She is packing up her apartment and moving to DC tomorrow for grad school. I will see her later today and then maybe tomorrow too. I will try to be mindful of my snacking, and track what I can remember.
