I don't know if it is phycological or not but cold weather always causes me to gain weight. I don't seem to be able to help it. I am hungry! The foods I eat all summer that are fine no longer appease me. It is not just me. My husband and kids and most of my friends at work do the same things. I think it is because you get much less active. You get stuck in doors and crave warm foods. I am hoping the gym will help. Unfortunately I have been extremely busy the last few days and haven't gotten to work out. I am definately going to go to the gym early and do about 2 hours or more tomorrow. I have rehab in the afternoon. I am fighting this hunger all day. Losing to it. I have not come this far to blow it now. I have to get motivated again. My husband doesn't work out often enough for me so I am going to put an advertisement in at work and see if I can get a workout partner. Someone who will make me go when I don't want to and visa versa. The sun goes down at 5:30 and I feel ready for bed by 8. If I don't stay active the weight will come off even slower.
For breakfast I had mini wheat shredded wheat with blueberries. For a snack I blew it and had an oatmeal cookie with raisens. I bought some beautiful apples but didn't eat that. I am going to make some stew in the crock pot tonight. I have to really concentrate on my goals. It is not going easy for some reason this week. I think some of it may by because I am on more pain meds because my arthritis is so bad since the weather got cold. Please don't screw this up Julie.
