I woke up this morning just feeling it.  Do you know what I mean?  I came here yesterday and posted hoping to pump myself up into really feeling it again.  Last night at home…still wasn’t feeling it.  I had a very reasonable dinner, a very small portion of angel hair pasta (probably a loosely filled cup) topped with some leftover homemade sauce that I made with turkey sausage and turkey pepperoni.  I was feeling OK, like I could do this again (I say that like it’s been months since I was completely on plan and like I went face first into the deep end of a vat of chocolate, which I didn’t!  But somehow, that’s the way I feel!) and be on plan all the time and stop eating by 7pm…and then the munchies struck.  I nibbled my way through the next hour or so.  Gah.

But today, when I woke up, I just felt like I was back in that zone.  I decided that I needed to do a fast.  I have typically been doing about 1 24 hour fast per week, occasionally more or longer and I haven’t for the past 2, almost 3 weeks.  I feel like my body needs that right now.  I like the clean feeling I have after I fast.  I feel energized.  This is going to be one of my hardest fasts because now I’m back to feeling hunger pains more often because I had been eating more often.

One of the ladies in my office decided that we need to do 30 minute walks on our lunch break now, which I think is fantastic.  I’m going to bring my shoes tomorrow and off we shall go!  It’s really hot here right now (for winter).  We have the AC running at work as I am typing this and it’s set to about 72 so it’s probably close to 80 out!  It’s nuts!!!  I will probably bring a trashy t shirt to change into also so my work shirt doesn’t get all stinky!!!  And I need to remember deoderant too!  I’m really excited :)

Today was rent day and that is so depressing.  Now I just have to figure out which of my remaining bills I am going to pay :(  I will be feeling the effects of Christmas until March I believe, yuck!  I have been seriously contemplating getting a second job for a few nights a week or the weekends.  I don’t want to, obviously, but I desperately need the money.
