Today is the first day of summer and the weather - for once - agrees with the calendar! It is gorgeous out there! Unlike a lot of runners who prefer running in cool and overcast conditions, I love running in the hot sun, so I'm looking forward to getting out there today.
This week has been a weird one for me. I've been extraordinarily busy at work, but have almost caught up! I am trying to keep up with weeding the garden - I wish there was a way to make only the plants grow and not the weeds!! Also trying - not so successfully - to keep the house clean from what the housekeepers did.
Marc and I are also trying to get some projects done - some of which have been on our "to do" lists for FAR too long. Stupid things like getting our septic tank pumped - that is happening today. I think I'll be outside all weekend long and that will keep my mood elevated, for sure!!
My weight has been really low this week compared to a normal week. That is good and bad. It's good for a couple reasons - it helps me mentally. Secondly, I'm preparing for a challenging couple weeks coming up. Marc and I will be going camping, and will be hiking a lot and burning calories BUT I'm sure that I will be eating way too much - the constant fresh air does that to me!
And then we are having a get together at my house for my father's side of the family. People have started responding what they plan to bring and O.M.G. - the desserts!!!!
Last year at this time I was THIS CLOSE to goal and was concentrating on getting down to my goal weight, so I restricted myself. This summer I am prepared to give myself a little leeway.
Which brings me to the bad news about my weight being down - I am HUNGRY. I mean really hungry most of the time. And it's not psychological. It's aching physical hunger. It has even disrupted my sleep which is a BAD sign. Which means that I need to eat more. Which means that this weight - I'm wondering if it's sustainable for me, and I'm getting to the point where I think the answer is no. And that bothers the crap out of me.
We'll see what happens...
