Just one more work day to go, and then the weekend is here! I am excited for Saturday as we are going to the Halloween event at a farmer's market we haven't been to yet. This place seems huge and was recommended by a friend of my husband. And I am also way excited for Monday as there is a preschool event at the zoo for Halloween. We went last year and it is so cute. The kids dress up in their costumes and do a few activities and go trick-or-treating through the offices. So yes, I have a few things to look forward to.
I am proud of myself today though because about an hour ago, I was really craving food. Something sweet, mainly, even toast with pumpkin butter. It still sounds delicious, but I started wondering if I was really hungry. I mean, it was only a few hours ago that I ate dinner and I really stuffed myself to be honest. My body couldn't possibly need more food already. There had to be something behind my cravings. So hmm...I'm tired, I'm stressed, I'm feeling cranky. Trying to use food to cope? Most likely. I kept battling myself thinking it will fit into my calorie range to have a snack, but how will I feel about that decision tomorrow? When I figured that I most likely wouldn't be too happy about hitting the upper end of my range today, I knew it wasn't real hunger. If it had been real hunger, I wouldn't care as much or I would make a better decision like a string cheese and an apple. So I am very proud that I actually took the time to think about it rather than just acting on impulse.
And just to throw in a bit of random, I really wish my cats wouldn't play George of the Jungle all night. Is it just a cat thing? Be an angel, stay off the furniture, snuggle and sleep by day...wreak havoc on the house by night. I've never owned cats before these two! We actually found their litter of six on our sideyard when they were approximately a month old. We worked hand in hand with the Humane Society of Greater Miami and fostered the entire litter until they were old enough to be adopted out (which was about a month and a half later). We kept two of the kittens and that is how my husband and I became first time cat owners! I adore them, I just wish they were on the same sleep schedule as I am!!!
