I was happy to hop onto my scale this morning and see that all the blubber I’ve acquired from xmas and being bad after is now gone. I’ve only been good for a few days but have lost about 5 pounds this week. Wowza. Back to 169. I guess I was at like 168 before Christmas…at least I’m out of the 170’s though right? I’m feeling inspired to eat well although not so much in the exercise area. I’m really making good food choices I think. I still have trouble with over-eating at supper time but I’m working on it. Part of me thinks that if I eat a bit too much at supper then I wont be so tempted to snack later. I think a little extra healthy supper is better than snacking for sure.
I’m so stinking tired. I had loads of energy this morning but I’m slowly fading. I still think the light therapy is working for my energy. Last night I felt more like myself than I have in a long time. I feel pretty good after using the light. The first few times it kind of annoyed me and made me feel a bit yucky but now I don’t want to turn it off. It’s become part of my morning routine now. I can tell now that it’s a beneficial aid in treating depression but still not a fast fix or anything. Nothing ever is. One needs to find a combination of things that works for them. I wish it didn’t take five thousand years to find that combo. Kay no, it’s been 17 years and I actually have learned a lot about it on my own. Light therapy is good, I hope more people try it and stick to it because it’s lovely.
Anyway, I’m yawning like crazy and I’m a pretty uninspired blogger today. I think I need to put my shoes on and make some banana muffins and hide the butter from myself.
Congratulations on your achievement! My baby is only 16 months and I’ve found that it can be hard to maintain a healthy, “feel-good” weight. Keep up the good work and enjoy the journey, the goal so often escapes us.
