I have gained a little and stalled out the past couple of weeks. I have been told that is normal but it is frustrating none the less.
I have not been sleeping well and I have been feeling down. This hot dry summer has induced a nasty fibromyalgia flare which affects my sleeping. My fatigue and dysthymia affect cravings and my sugar cravings came roaring back with a vengeance the past few weeks.
There was a lot of sugar in my life this past weekend. Five, yes, five birthday parties! Lot's of yummy food and sweets galore. My will-power flat-lined. So, time to rally and get back on track! With the exception of my own birthday dinner this weekend, cake is being banished for a while.
On the positive side of this, I spent time with my dearest friends at these parties including this cute little fellow who turned 1 year old. Isn't he handsome! And isn't that what these joyous events are for? Celebrating a milestone and being with people we love; cake isn't the important part. (But damn, was it tasty!)
