I came home Thursday evening from work and have not been out of the house since. The blizzard of 2013, aka Nemo came with a vengeance!
He dropped 36.5 inches on us and has nearly shut down our state. In our town we are faring well compared to neighboring towns but roads are a mess and plows are getting stuck. They could only remove the snow with payloaders. School was closed on Friday and will be closed again tomorrow.
Being stuck in the house is making it extremely challenging to stay focused on my program. I also have no desire to exercise. I did shovel a bit but yesterday but generally speaking I hate being out in the cold and I am not at all fond of the snow.
I am finding myself completely focused on food and feeling hungry all the time. I have stayed within my calorie limits but have made poor carb choices. I ate pasta with vodka sauce AND sweet potatoes the last couple of days. It doesn't sound horrible but it is for my blood sugar.
Today I ate a bunch of Club multi-grain mini crackers. I have been at 50% carbs the last 2 days when I normally try to stay under 35%. I am happy for a full day of conference calls tomorrow to help take my mind off food, but nevertheless I will be working from home, which all of a sudden seems dangerous.
I think I am turning to food because I have been very stressed over this storm. I was really worried about how we were going to dig out. My husband is my hero because he got it done. It took him 8 hours over 2 days but he dug us out. He is nearly crippled now but he got it done. My next worry is the snow on the roof of both the house and the garage with rain expected tomorrow. I do believe it is emotional eating driving me right now and I MUST break the pattern.
Here are some of pictures of what we had to deal with here...
Check out my husband heading out to the garage with his 6 foot frame. That's my car underneath that pile...
That's my son trying to shovel the path to get to the oil valve. Oil delivery expected later this week.
Here are my husband and my other son working on about 200 feet of driveway...
I have not exercised today. Zero excuse and no reason not to, just have not felt like it.
I have got to get my mojo back!!! Serenity now!!!
