This has definitely been a winter. Today it's an ice storm that has thus far dropped almost half an inch of glossy junk. It's a mix of ice and frigid water at the moment, but tonight it will freeze into a rink - something to look forward to. :)
Of course, bad weather days generally mean crappy food for me. I was able to plan ahead a bit this time and my snacks are all healthy. The upside to a day like this is that I am so busy, I don't have time to obsess over food, which is my main problem.
I am a food addict. Even as my weight rose this time, I knew what the problem really was. I love food. When I am stressed, I love food that is bad for me, because it is comforting. When I am happy, I want 'celebration' food. When I am sad, I want sugar. So, not only am I a food addict, but I am emotional eater. I figure it's like any duel addiction, because each issue has its own solution.
I am taking each day as it comes and trying to figure out solutions for each moment that tests me. But like I have said before - I would take almost any other addiction, because you can stop alcohol or drugs, but you need food to live.
Here's to a snow day without a trip to the vending machine.
Yours in health,
