I call it my MidWintertime Blahs! I usually have those days lately when it is once again grey out (with no hint of sun coming out any time that day) and cold and the wind swirling around making it colder than what it is already cold. At least today was sunny (cold though), and I was able to get some enthusiasm to go to the gym. This is when I wish I could go visit somebody South and get warm and maybe a good dose of sunshine Vitamin D! I just keep up my routine, and let some things fall by the wayside (lazy without the guilt in other words), and will wait for Spring to come soon.

But my blah day brought 2 cheats.....I had 2 pieces of cornbread. GRANTED they were low fat and gluten free but still..... I just wanted to sleep all day long but couldn't. I really need naptime at work to make me feel better and a vacation to a very sunny warm state

The gym was the best part of my day yesterday. Work was a migraine, errands gave me the run around and my eating was soooooo off. Glad it is a new day

I think having a food blow out every few months is better than having small treats regularly....

Much better day. I broke down and got a much needed back massage. I could feel every knot in my back as I was massaged. Decided on some Thai food since I was out running around

A nice massage and Thai food always makes my day finer! And an extra day of calories, just means more energy for tomorrow's workout!

I was doing so well on my diet - until the day after a whole week had gone by unscathed! I laugh, cuz my partner said that I looked very muscular the next day (I wore a tank top and my delts were huge!). I didn't think carb loading would happen so fast - only a week of being on my diet of low carbs (all wheat is cut out, and I am replacing the carbs with veggies mostly - a piece of fruit here and there). I just did 45 minutes of cardio the next day to make up for it!

I also have to make a mental note, that no matter how much will power I think I have, when it is that time of the month, I better plan on having extra carbs - because either I choose what carbs I can eat or my hormones will pick out the carbs for me! LOL! - and the hormones won't pick the carbs that are good while on a diet! Bad bad hormones!

yeah I think it is getting to be that time of month actually... Might explain the mood swings and extra cravings. But the Thai food I had was fresh spring rolls with the peanut chili sauce my favorite!! and tofu vegetable delight lunch portion :) I can't beat myself up for my choice only thing that would have been a better choice might have been the ginger delight dish kinda wish I had now that I think about it...

Awww Mina that is because I am uber dedicated to losing all this nasty weight I carry around. I have slacked off this week due to foul moods and hours of playing WOW to combat my grumpiness. Back on track though.
