Beating the Blues

I'm feeling down today...
My girlfriends and I sewed yesterday and had a barbecue lunch. One girl's husband smoked ribs and brisket and they were awesome! but that's the first red meat I've had in awhile, and I had 2 ribs and probably 4 oz of brisket. We also had potato salad and a wonderful vinegar and olive oil coleslaw. And cookies.... I was pretty good, only at one cookie.
But today I ache! I can tell I didn't eat my usual "clean" diet. My joints all hurt.
I'm going walking and try to get some endorphins going so I don't feel so down. Its a beautiful day here today, sunny and maybe high 70s.
And I'm addicted to Bingo Bash on my iPad. That is the biggest time suck ever. I don't know why I keep playing. I have so many other things to do - I have socks to knit, I have sewing/quilting to do, I have a book I'm reading - but I'm glued to the bingo. I even feel guilty and bad after sitting and playing for a couple hours. If it makes me feel bad, I shouldn't be doing it. I'm about ready to delete it off my iPad. I love playing Words With Friends, and it doesn't make me feel bad - I guess because its not "constant". You can play your words and then go back a couple hours later and play again; you don't have to be stuck to the screen all day long.
I need to read some motivational stuff today. Gotta pick myself up and put on a smile.
