good morning!

It's a cold, rainy morning here in San Antonio.  Drinking my coffee, paying bills and contemplating my day, weekend and my life.

Overall I'm happy, however, just like millions of women who go through weight loss, weight gain and general dislike of one owns body when the favorite dress doesn't fit quite right, or it doesn't fit at all anymore, I need a change in my daily intake of food. Last night I devoured  the remainder of a family sized bag of lays potato chips that I bought the day before. Potato chips are my down fall.....

When I'm thin, I feel good. When I gain an extra 10 pounds, eeh, it's okay, but when I am 20 pounds over my personal ideal weight, I feel bad.  I feel more stressed and depressed, and a weird thing happens, I feel this strange tension in my head and wonder, should I visit a doctor. No, I would rather lose some weight and not feel that pressure, whatever it is.

So when I woke up today, I decided I am by passing the great smelling breakfast my husband cooks on Saturday mornings and instead, read the book by Kris Carr, "My crazy, sexy, diet".  Not sure sure if I can go to the extreme of becoming a vegan, but I can certainly start juicing and commit to a 21 day cleanse. Let's see how it goes.

Now, since it's rainy and cold and my "outdoor" kitty has been occupying my studio space, I need to go in there and clean up.  Maybe even finish an existing project or start a new one.

  1. I am right there. Stress makes it harder to eat right because I now recognize that I am a classic emotional eater. Your resolve inspires me.

    PS I was just on your artwork page. Your pieces are beautiful! Do you have a site where you sell your art?

    1. Thank you! I have done a few shows but i'm not business saavy, so I gave up trying to sell online. Now I'm just having fun creating!

  2. I can definitely relate...I have struggled with my weight all of my life and have never been thin...only a little "less fat" at different stages. I imagine after 60 years, that's the way it will always be.

  3. i hope you can feel healthier again. i've had a few extra pounds hang on this winter, but with better weather, i'm thinking i'll be more apt to hit the driveway for walks/runs again.

    1. Thanks! It's nice to feel the sun again, and with the time change this weekend, I'm sure it will help!
