So…tired…this…morning. It stormed all night last night and there were all kinds of tornados popping up all over NE Oklahoma – in JANUARY! It has been in the 60’s here the last few days and so the atmosphere was ripe for a tornado. We didn’t have any near us, but Great Mother of Gouda, the thunder just would not stop. And so of course it woke up my little one and she crawled into bed with us and that’s when we both felt it – she was twitching again. Her head would jerk a little, and then her arms, and her feet. It went on for several minutes, and I remember the doctor telling us we would notice it more when she was relaxed. He called yesterday to confirm our patient information so he could make the appointment for us – yea for my doctor. So hopefully we will be able to get her in within the next couple of weeks and maybe we can find out what’s going on.On the health front (mine), I am up two more pounds. I think now is the time for some serious action. My weight just seems to be creeping up and up and up and so I think I have to admit that my experiment in *normal* eating is not going as well as I had hoped. I think the problem is that when I am eating intuitively, I am actually eating anything and everything I want. Hunger and fullness? What’s that?? I just eat pretty much whatever I want and conveniently forget about stopping when I am full, or really I just eat whether I’m hungry or not. So, I’m thinking about FitDay or WW Online, or something that would help me to have some boundaries for my food intake. I tried Sparkpeople, but I found it to be a little distracting – I wish accumulating points would translate into calorie burnage, but I’m afraid it doesn’t.
As far as exercise, I think I need to ramp that up too. I am doing the 3 days a week with the C25K, but I think on the off days I need to walk or something. Or maybe do a less intensive run, I don’t know; just something more than what I am doing now.
Completely off topic here, but I have FOUR starter bags of Amish cinnamon bread. That equals EIGHT loaves of bread. Should I just throw a couple of starters away, or should I make all eight loaves and freeze them or give them away??? I know for a fact that my family will consume 4 loaves with no problem whatsoever. Eight, though is a little much, even for my bread loving brood.
I can feel my weary brain starting to go off in many tangent directions so I think I should stop while I’m ahead and maybe tomorrow I will have something AWESOME and INSPIRING to post about (don’t hold me to it though)!
