a reward for me...
Sunday, March 17, 2013
Well, I have been struggling with night eating all week- not sure why. There is stress with my mom still being pretty depressed but notw in rehab facing a long recovery. I go see her every day at dinner time to try and encourage her to eat. She hasn't been eating for various reasons- probably mainly emotional now- but will not get stronger if she doesn't.
Part of the struggle I think is the initial diet euphoria when I can resist temptation is over- now its more slogging through. In general I am eating so much healthier it can only be good in the long run. Last week's weight gain of 1.2 pounds really bummed me out especially when I felt like I was working extra hard with exercise. At WWs when you gain I noticed they kind of whisper it to you in a sad way.
Anyway this blog is about reward- For the last 11 years I have had acrylic nails which I love- I know all the negatives about having them but they make me so happy whenever I look at my hands that I don't care. I love color and designs and since my friend does them for me- its not that expensive. Over the years I have switched to buying my own polish so I can have ready whatever I want. I come up with different designs and ideas. This week I found a new magazine about nail art at grocery store- I wasn't going to buy it but did. I have had such fun looking at the nails and reading about new trends. Which of course prompted me to buy some new nail polish. I went on a mini splurge- first ordering some new colors from Amazon- who would think they had polish? Then a new color at Walmart cause I was afraid new colors wouldn't come in time for next appt. ( I go about once a month since I have been unemployed)
Then after looking at magazine more I found some new unusual polish I could find at Sephora.
(Sephora is my other true love!) I had gotten an email with a deal for extra samples- so went on- ordered new nail polish and found a $5 deal on their lip gloss and ordered my samples.
So now despite other stressors I am happy about my new nail polish coming- I have enough to go for many manicures- maybe through summer and it has distracted me from eating.
Now I am going to ride the exercise bike for 10 minutes- take a shower and go back to bed because it is 3am!
