First Weekend of the New Year
Saturday, January 05, 2013
Took Dixie out for a short walk in the flurries. She had a blast running like a crazy person. I hacked and coughed a lot. So, in lieu of a long walk/run today I put on Leslie Sansone's video and walked in the bedroom. Next, I put in aerobics videos and did those, taking a break while cooking a week's worth of chicken and throw every veg in the house soup. I took a break around 1 to eat a bowl of soup with some kale chips on the side.
Winter is hard on me emotionally for some reason. I just get depressed at the drop of a hat. No real reason why other than I don't get the sunlight and fresh air I crave. I do make a point of going outside at work during lunch and breaks and enjoy the sunlight even if I'm bundled up like a snowman. It's not the same as it is when you can bask your arms and legs in it.
I'm spending the day working out off and on in the bedroom. Kicking myself for not being more superman than I think I should be with the lingering bronchitis. I lost a good 3 or 4 weeks of working out due to it. I'm thankful I can get back on the horse now.
Hubby has a fire going in the fireplace, music going. The 2 gallons of soup is packaged and in the freezer for the next week or so of lunches. I got sick of salads for lunch last week and decided I needed something warm. Rather than hitting Crazy Bowls and Wraps for their mean Asian Chicken with Peanut Sauce wrap like I did for a few days, I'm getting smarter. I will treat myself to warm oatmeal for breakfasts too. With lots of cinnamon - yum.
I did eat like a horse over the past two weeks. Seriously starved horse. Back to normal now. I know I promised myself on New Years day, but clawing my way through 3 more days of work took it all out of me. By the time I was driving home last night, I stopped at Long John Silvers and got a family thing of fish and ate and fell asleep for the night. Last greasy, nasty, take out meal. Promise. On my heart.
