O.k, so my day wasn’t exactly roses and sunshine but once I surrendered to the fact that I am sick things did get a little brighter. And the rain stopped enough to go get some food! By 12:30 I still hadn’t eaten breakfast, I NEVER go that long after waking without eating, and it was really time to find sustenance. I feasted on scrambled eggs and tomatoes and a pile of sautéed broccoli with garlic. YUM!
After brunch I was still hungry but after an asian pear and some seaweed crackers I realized what I really needed was a sleep. My throat was sore and swollen and my body was starting to ache. Plus, I think I have whiplash from my little accident this morning.
First thing this morning I went up to the roof to move yesterdays laundry out into the open because it wasn’t raining. As I climbed down the stairs I hit a puddle on the landing, went down HARD on my bum, and smashed my head against the concrete wall. My first thought was “don’t pass out”, that’s how hard I hit. I crawled to a dry spot, shed a tear, and collected myself.
I have a goose egg on my head, an ongoing headache, and really sore neck and shoulders. Luckily, my husband the chiropractor is taking good care of me. Insult to injury on top of a cold though.
Alrighty, today is the 15th and thus half way through my June Goals. It has been going really well EXCEPT the sugar thing. Especially since hitting China. China LOVES sugar. They have entire grocery stores dedicated to it. And it’s places you least expect it. All crackers and breads and many items made with beans or sticky rice are REALLY SWEET. I know bread products everywhere often have a little added sugar but these things are sweet. I like sugar in my mouth but I don’t like what it does for my immune system, my food cravings, and my mood and this is why I was trying to cut down. But I am sort of giving up…or maybe not…I need to renew my resolve!
I have a few addendum to my goals, one is the push up variation challenge and the other is a running goal. My new running goal is 2.5 hours of running or 4 runs per week! Yea, let’s go!
The food journal has reveled a lot of snacking, some of it mindless. I will bring more awareness to this during the second half of the month. Also, I have been regularly snacking after dinner. Sometimes this is valid hunger but more than anything I think it’s just a bad habit I have gotten into and need to break.
Do you find yourself going to the fridge in the evenings? When is your most common “mindless snacking” time of day?
