I'm not sure why I get those Blah moments, but at least I recognize them when they are happening now. I can remember having the same emotions, but not catching on until it was over and then I had a bunch of apologizing to do! Of course, that was way back my days of chemical birth control. Once I figured out that was killing me, we went with other methods and I evened out. And that is why I'm fairly convinced I'm dealing with hormones. I'll be working on some holistic remedies after vacation. In the mean time, I have this to keep my spirits up:

As far as weight-loss goes. It still really isn't.
After a solid week of logging my food and wearing the Bodybugg, I have the results: I eat too much and move too little. Pretty much already knew that, now didn't I?
I guess that isn't 100% true. On average, I consumed 500 calories fewer than I burned; that should equal one pound per week weight loss. First of all, I didn't lose one pound last week, and second, I want to see more serious results than that! Unfortunately, we all know we underestimate calories consumed -whether it's due to portions or "forgetting" we ate something. I know the Bugg doesn't fudge, so it has to be on that end. AND my goal of taking 10,000 steps a day is almost twice what I'm doing now.
I won't be jogging today, but I will be shopping....lots of shopping! We are heading for the mountains of NC this weekend and the kiddos and I need cooler-weather clothes. I have to at least concede that I need clothes because nothing I have fits anymore!! :D
Here's hoping I can take more steps and eat fewer calories! And here's hoping that you will
