Slippery Slope

Monday, January 14, 2013

I am fighting to keep from falling into my usual January depression. I bought myself some flowers yesterday to remind me that Spring will be here soon. I am going walking at lunch time in search of Vitamin D.

My eating has not been awful, but it has not been what it could be. I DID do some cooking yesterday so I would have some different stuff this week. I am not looking forward to weigh in tomorrow. emoticon

    Wonderful idea with getting some flowers to help you along with the tail end of winter.
I'm gobbling vitamins religiously and this year is better than most. emoticon

    Good for you in cheering yourself up with the lovely bouquet & a walk in sunshine. That's called taking care of yourself. Don't be hard on yourself and let the scale dictate your worth. Just pick up and do better your next meal. *hugs* BB~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The first of our seed catalogs arrived on New Year's Eve, and we're already planning this year's garden. Even though it's snowing, we can still dream of spring asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Having something to look forward to helps a little.

    I love buying fresh cut flowers in the winter. Your pick is gorgeous! Winter blues really do suck but putting positive things in your mind really do help. I like to read motivational or health books. Good Luck!

    This time of the year is hard for most of us who do not live in a warm climate. When I feel the walls closing in , going outside even for 30 minutes helps tremendously.

Give yourself a pat on the back for recognizing the pattern. emoticon
