Vices

"Nothing is as certain as that the vices of leisure are gotten rid of by being busy"
~Seneca (5 BC -65 AD)

I often find that when I'm struggling with my eating it's truly because I am bored. It's amazing to be how much I can eat, or how much I think I'm hungry when I have nothing better to do. I've found I can go a whole day without eating if I'm busy! I never thought I had any vices, I didn't gamble, I didn't smoke, I didn't do drugs or drink, but now that I think about it, I have a vice. My vice is food. When I'm bored I eat. When I'm sad, I eat. When I'm stressed, I eat. I'm learning to overcome this vice, but I know it will take time, and a lot of new hobbies to put a kabosh on this vice.

Today I'm really not feeling so hot. I really thought for the last couple days Chase had been bothering my allergies, being I am allergic to him, but as today has went on, I have gotten to feeling worse and worse. I'm flushed in my cheeks, and cold. So I would definitely say that I'm getting a cold or something. Hopefully it will be short lived...I have alot of gym days to get in yet this month :)

I went to the gym again last night #6 of 18 times. Go me! I am really liking the gym...maybe because its something to do to keep me busy and out of the chip bag! Plus I think it makes me sleep better, and helps me have more energy. My clothes are feeling loose, so I have a feeling I will see a good loss come Sunday, but the scale could play tricks on me....we never know what kind of mood he'll be in!

Anyways, that's it for me today. I'm gonna go home and snuggle with the animals on the couch and try to "sleep off" this cold. Hope you all are healthy and happy!
