It's official, I'm in one.

It's cool and cloudy today, no sight of the sun.

The car is in the shop and the repairs are going to be somewhere between "ouch and wow".

I haven't heard back from the interviews of Friday. My friend called Sunday, said it all looked good, but I would have one more interview. No word so far.

Yesterday I made zuchinni muffins from the largess of my garden, two versions-one no sugar added and very low fat and the other the full blown-ok half fat, reduced sugar-I just can't cook the other way any more version. And I ate, I ate chips-they were baked, I ate nuts-1/2 cup, I ate grilled cheese and I ate muffins, lots of both kinds. Been a while since I've used food that way, for comfort and to fill up the empty. Really just to stuff myself.

I'm back to normal eating today. I may have another grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, it was very comforting. I'll track it and fill in the blanks with fruit and veggies. The food didn't solve any of my problems or relieve my anxiety or stress.

I'll walk later this afternoon, the house needs cleaning, the yard work is done.
I'll look for my spark in that closet that needs clearing out. Or maybe in a nap.

Did I get up on the wrong side of the bed or what?

    I too get to nibbling and eat more when I am frustrated. Keep up the good attitude! I hope you get good news soon from the interview. Keeping busy helps me get through the tough days of frustration. Hope things go well for you and you seem to be getting back on track.

    Maybe you're just ready for a break. Not a psychotic break. Not a break down. Just a break from the regular routine.

    Sometimes life isn't pleasant, and stress sucks. Myself, I'm feeling depressed today, and I have no problem separating myself from the world for a day or two until I'm ready to relate again. And I believe the world appreciates that.

    I hope you're feeling better real soon. I'll be praying for you.

    We all have those days. At least you realize it and can learn from it. If I can learn to walk again, we can get back to walking together, I miss the walk and the talk. Take care of yourself and come on by, if you need to talk. I have PT today and tomorrow from 2:30-4:00, but the rest of the time I'm home. See ya!

    I am sure it is just one of those days. Change of weather, your decision about the new job. It comes with life sometimes I guess. I was in one when I saw all the kids heading back to school. It was just a reminder that summer was coming to an end. I am not ready for that.

    Ok, repeat after me: I am not in a funk, I am not in a funk... emoticon

    I agree with the others here.

    Focus on what you have and not what you don't. This too shall pass, but when you focus on the positive there is less room for the negative!

    I think weather affects our moods more than we know. Yes, you're definitely in a funk, but the positive part is that you recognize it. Sure, you succumbed to comfort foods, but just for the one day. And you're stressed because of the interview process, which doesn't help the situation. It will all work out the way it should -- I wish you the best of luck with the interview process. And give yourself a hand for baking the zucchini bread in the two different versions. You've made great strides and have come a long way. Keep on plugging along. We all have our funks and need to deal with them. It's getting back on track that really matters, and it seems to me that you've done that. Have a great afternoon!

    Some days are just like that...sorry you're having one today. Keep looking for your spark in that closet and not the kitchen.

    emoticon The sun will come out tomorrow...keep your chin up until it does. Sending you hugs and tons of positive vibes...can you feel them?
