I'm having a tough day today. I woke up in really bad pain, which delayed my getting out of bed for an extra two hours...and made my planned AM walk impossible. After my shower, I did manage to do my strength training that was scheduled, although with less than the usual enthusiasm. I am still hoping to get the walk in this evening after it cools down a bit...especially since I've eaten WAY more than I'd wanted to this afternoon.
It is not usual for me to have such a struggle with the urge to eat. Or maybe it is; but since it is not resisted, maybe I just don't normally NOTICE. Today, after lunch (lunch was just a "Soup at Hand"- 180 calories) I had three other things as snacks (and it's only 2:30!!) I am trying to think of a way to cap this "oil leak" and undo some of the damage.
Because I am still in a fair amount of pain, the thought of doing any yoga or any other exercise doesn't seem too appealing, but I think I will try to do the yoga anyway. Other than my little spurts of exercising, my life is almost completely sedentary. Of course, my kitchen floor could really use a sweeping and a mopping...maybe I'll do that?? That would really kill two birds with one stone. Maybe even THREE birds because not only would it do damage control and clean my floor; it would also distract me from the "sugar plums" which are dancing in my head and luring me to prowl the kitchen cabinets! And it would even be effective AFTER the floor was done, because with the kitchen floor wet, I am less than likely to be strolling around it looking for food!
However I will have to first lie down and wait for the pain in my back and neck to calm down from doing the dishes and making iced tea just now...Then, kitchen floor, watch out cuz I'm coming for YOU!
Yes, that sounds like a completely sensible thing to do. The only thing that stands between doing it and me is pain. But I will just have to tough it out.
