Before I say anything, let me preface by letting you know that Madi's in time-out and JuJu is trying to take a 6:00pm nap. Yes, it's been that kind of day. And, while Jeff is hooting and hollering it up -although just the thought of that made me giggle- at his office Christmas party, it just highlights the fact that I have been sitting beneath a black raincloud for weeks.
Um, no. It didn't help that I completely blew my excitement to go low-carb (Day #2.) Why is it that when you say you are going on a diet, you suddenly want to eat everything in sight? ....Pasta that Jeff brought home from his lunch outing yesterday, homemade cookies from our friend, Diana, and I even secretly stole the last swig from a bottle of Mountain Dew. Today hasn't been much better but it's been a rough day. I'm cutting myself some slacks. Wait...did I just write, "slacks." Good grief! Now I have pant issues too!
I realized today that I don't get out as much as I should. All the midnight writing, and early mornings with Juju, makes me exhausted and I've definitely been living in a fog. I saw myself in a mirror at Target today and I cringed. I was really glad I didn't bump into anyone I knew. So, today it's official. This weekend I am going to go through my closet and get rid of anything that is too big, or anything that I wouldn't want to have my photograph taken in.
Sorry it's not a happier kind of day but it's the best I can do ...today. I promise, after a trip to Starbucks tomorrow, the outlook will be much brighter!
