Just another day

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Got my walking down and felt good until the sun disappeared. Funny how something so simply as the weather can effect me so much. But, knowing it's just the lack of son eases the depression a bit.

So, today is Valentine's Day. Well, my husband informed me earlier this week that we weren't doing Valentine's Day and not to even think about it. Okay. (This is not news, he seldom recognizes holidays) Saves me from pretending I care. I know I should, but I don't.

I didn't sleep well last night. My husband has a cold and decided to sleep on his back-snored so loud it drove me insane. My son had a rough day yesterday (he's 16) and didn't sleep. I could hear him moving around. He often will stay up all night a sometimes organizes the house when he's this way. (He has OCD) I use to be able to sleep when he was up, now I worry. What if he decides life is too hard?

I did call and chat with a friend for a bit today. It's a blessing to have friends that will talk to you on good and bad days.

Did some more upper body exercises. My scale had 2lbs up today but I'm guessing from my swollen fingers this morning, it's water weight. My body reacts badly to not enough sleep. And my jeans were still looser and so were my bras(I know, TMI) so I know I didn't gain real weight overnight. We'll see what is says tomorrow. (I weigh daily to avoid binging)

I decided when I get to my first goal-a long ways off at 15 pounds, I might go have my hair colored again. I've let the gray in for over a year now. If I don't reach my goal, I'll just stay gray.

Was thinking today how much I wish I had a pool. We use to have one. Oh well, it's of no use in the winter here anyway and that dream of an indoor pool, well, maybe someday, right?

Must go cheer myself up. It can't be sunny all the time.

    I can relate about the sunlight, that's why I spend time each day in front of my light box. It really makes a difference.

    The weather really does affect our moods. I love a sunshiny day and want to go outside. It was good to chat with your friend AND you did your exercises. Not everyone can say that! If I don't get enough sleep at night, it is very easy for me to fall asleep late afternoon. Just wondering if you can squeeze some nap time in.

    Thank you for writing.

    I totally rely on sunshine. In fact, I realized that as a child and moved early in life to a sunny place. For me, it's as necessary
    as oxygen. Big hug.

    Wash that gray out of your hair! It's amazing what a new hair do and color will do to lift your spirits. It has the domino effect. Go for it!! emoticon
