day 8, i hope will be sunnier

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

So, today, so far, I am feeling a little better, have been able to open up the curtains to see a little sun out there, while it has no heat with it, at least it gives me the feeling that life isnt so dark and bleak.
It is supposed to warm up some and I am hoping by about 1pm today I can get my car doors open and get out for awhile.
Have alot I need to be doing, but all I want to be doing is walking and I am hoping with temps rumored to reach 40 tomorrow, I will be able to, even if its a short quick walk.
I know my last few blogs have been Debbie Downers. It has alot to do with the weather.
I have to get some sun somehow someway. So if that means the tanning bed at least its better than none, for 15 minutes anyway.
As far as eating goes, well I wont lie, I have been eating alot of comfort foods the last few days, cheese and cornbread and macaroni.
All of that is gone now and I am going grocery shopping Friday and stock up on veggies and protein.
I am so ready to get out of this funk and get myself back on that track.
Today is 1 year anniversary of the day I broke my foot. I remember that sound, I remember I was on the walking track, I was at the height of my weight loss, I remember weighing in that morning and I remember the number and I also know I am up 16 lbs today.
I dont want to dwell on the fact I have to lose that 16 lbs just to get back to where I left off.
So, I am just going to focus one day and one pound at a time and getting in shape again.
I know getting back to walking, I am guessing its been close to 6 weeks or longer since I did walk, its going to be slow going, and few and far between with this cold weather.
I do not do well in cold and wish I lived in a warmer climate.
But I know spring will be here one day and the sun will come with it and I will be able to walk and feel better and get my vitamin d back up and hopefully lose some weight.
This is afterall my goal, to lose weight, I want to be healthy and feel good and live a long life, but overall, my goal is to lose more weight.

You really do seem to have a little spirit back. emoticon
or should I say spark?

I just took an hour walk with my dog and it's 19 degrees here. I just bundled up and walked fast. Invigorating to say the least.

They have special lights S.A.D. sufferers use. Would one of those help? I bet you could pick one up on Craigslist cheap.

Have a great day, Val. Spring is how many days away?

    The weather affects my mood, too. Good plan to take it one day and one pound at a time.
