Hello Everyone. I have had a long, hard day and have really debated about even posting. I feel awful, mentally, emotionally and physically and I have a bad attitude! There I have it out in the open! lol Nothing really awful has happened, just a long string of mostly little, some medium things that have made it one exhausting day. The kids are just wound and cranky and I think that has some to do with Daddy working such long hours and being gone so many nights with this U of P job application/training. God bless you Kimberly, who is doing this 24/7 while her Hubby is deployed! This makes me think of you and reminds me to pray more often! End of whine.
So, I changed my mind because a lovely lady in Australia took the time to email me since she couldn't post a comment, and told me she found it helpful! It was like God was giving me a little pat on the back of encouragement or maybe a boot on the behind to finish my pity party and get on with the regularly scheduled program! Thank you.
Well, the weight today wasn't good: 316# I am not going to get overly depressed and focus on that, though I will be careful it doesn't go up any higher. This has a lot to do with celebrating Hubby's birthday two days in a row, the time of the month and still not exercising. I realized that this is post #20...so about 5 months we have been doing this together! I feel like I need a little jump start to get back going, but that I am doing okay. It honestly feels more like exhaustion and life craziness than a food issue.
Speaking of exercise... how did all of you do? After posting on the blog last week, my Mom kept on going nearly every day on her treadmill. WAY TO GO MOM! I'm so proud of you! :o) Would you all pray that I can get to sleep at night so that I can wake up early enough to get up and exercise? I really want to start up again.
And are any of the rest of you getting tired of winter fare? Since deciding to purposefully eat in season, I have been so hungry for grapes, tomatoes and other yummy summer foods. Mostly just craving fresh, raw food and I think that's a good thing. Soon. It will be soon. Especially here in CA where it warms up faster than most of the country.
Today we went grocery shopping and I picked up my bags of wheat and spelt. On the spelt bag was a quote that I think fits my opinion of the cost of eating health/ier:
The bitter taste of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Author Unknown.
I wanted to share more with you today but the brain is fried and I will leave it at that and come back next week, hopefully as a gentler, kinder Wellness Wednesday Woman! :o)
