This weeks thoughts
Saturday, October 24, 2015
The last week wasn't my best week ever. I had the flu. One of my kids was cited months ago for alcohol possession and we had a court date for that. Dates were canceled. There were issues at work. My mood was just bleak and I felt scatterbrained. On Friday, I took my daughter to dinner where she gave me a lector about how I needed to be a strong independent woman and just get my stuff together. My son, when I said I felt blue, said "grattitude, tell me the three good things that happened today". Oh my, they listen. So I dropped the blue mood and noticed the good.
So I've been struggling a little the last year, and I had a thought this morning. I don't track my food. I've done this long enough that I just know what my allowance is. Here is the thing, the year leading up to my hysterectomy in December, I gained weight. I had a lot of stress over my tumor, mystery pain, and inflammation. I slept a lot because my body felt drained and I stress ate a little. I never went to look to see if weighing more changed my caloric intake. I know it went down as I lost weight, but perhaps some my issues might be coming from not eating enough. So, I'm going to tract this week and pay attention to what I should be eating at my current weight... Let's see if it helps :) it just might.
