Snow was so deep I could not see the edge of the steps I was shoveling. When I put my left foot down, I just kept going until I fell off the edge, landing hard on my butt and becoming stuck and half buried in the snow. My husband had to pull me out and being as large and out of shape as I am, this was no easy task and I was mortified. Of course, this happens in front of the guy who was plowing our driveway at the time. In the process, I twisted my left knee rather badly...I'm sure it's just a sprain, as I can walk and bear weight but it does not like stairs and threatens to give out (actually did once and I fell halfway down the stairs in the house because of it). So now I ache all over, my house is a mess because I'm too sore to clean it, and I'm eating too much.
I think I'm going to cut myself some serious slack today...tomorrow the roads will be clearer, perhaps I can walk some then if my knee feels better, and I am thinking of starting back on Weight Watchers to get my white bread problem under better control. It has been over a week of no junk sugar (even today, so far) but I know I am overdoing the bagels and crackers. Perhaps if I start keeping honest track of just how much I am eating, it will help. I think I may be overdoing the bread to make up for lack of junk sugar (the stress eating again) because I sure do miss the hard candy...unfortunately it is not something I can enjoy in moderation as I tend to binge once the sugar monster is allowed a taste.
