Here's a picture from last week at Ocracoke, just because I like the colors.
I have to come clean. Last night I ate a spoon full of hummus and a couple of pretzels. I was in the kitchen late at night, fixing the kids a snack, and suddenly I just wanted SOMETHING. The cravings kicked in, and the little voice that asks “what the hell are you doing, anyway?” I was able to stop myself before it became an all-out binge, and today I am back on the wagon. I was up a lot last night, I’ll spare the details, but the detoxing has already begun. Today I was slow getting going, but now that I’m up and about I feel really good. I do have to work 12-hour shifts the next three nights in a row, and I’m a little nervous about that. It’s very hard to stay on track at work anyway, which is why so many night shift workers are overweight. Couple that with the sleep deprivation issues, and night shift is a recipe for bad health. Anyway, 12 hours is a long shift, and sometimes we eat just to keep ourselves going. This is going to be a real challenge.
Speaking of sleep, here’s a good article from Mercola that I got in my email yesterday.
Yesterday I managed to finally fill my 7 Earthboxes with soil, and plant some carrots, kale, spinach, collards, fennel, and rutabagas. I know it’s late in the season to be planting fall veggies, but Ruby and the cabbage worms destroyed my first planting. I’m hoping the weather stays mild long enough for me to harvest something by Christmas.
And this is for You, you know who you are.
Within you I lose myself...
Without you I find myself
Wanting to be lost again.
