I think after awhile many of us have a hard time staying motivated to keep on track with our diet and exercise plan for lots of reasons.  Lately, I've been slouching off too and that makes me in a foul mood which makes me not want to stay on track and so I get into this never-ending cycle.  It's a lot of negative energy, just when we're coming into the holidays and there are so many chores to get done.  And I'm looking at everything like "chores" which is a negative reaction and I think it's undermining my attitude: planning, shopping, cooking, baking, cleaning, leaves, cleaning, more leaves, more shopping, more planning.  So, what happened to this tight control of the diet and exercise?  Well, no matter what reasons we come up with, it's tricky but we know that the bottom line is how it affects our health.  Here's an article this I thought was interesting, especially because it comes at a good time!  If you identify with any of these emoticons, read the article.  (I feel like all of them.)   mad    nono   shakehead   smhair   wink

True, true, true! Don't know what it is lately but, EVERYONE around me is in a "mood" these days, including me! The sugar feast I had the other day was something rare for me to do but, Holy Cow! The more I ate the more I wanted. I was insatiable! I paid for it big time though, and sometimes I find myself actually grateful (I know it sounds weird), that I actually have this thing that keeps me in check. I can never stray too far before the stab of a needle in my gut "reminds" me of what I'm doing.

I feel like all your emoticons, Lanie - sometimes all in one day :-)

OK It's not just us. Just came back from my doctor's appointment (after waiting over an hour - not typical) and my doc said things are so crazy because there's a full moon coming. She said when she used to work in emergency that full moons were always predictably wild nights and that they'd try to staff extra just for those few days. I've heard that before from a police friend of mine. There's something about a full moon.... weird, eh?

Guess that's where lunatic, looney bin, looped, and many more of those "lu" words come from.
