The middle of the week was a bit rough, both physically and emotionally, but I’ve come out feeling better by the weekend. My eating has been fairly steady and reasonably healthy. I had a few drinks on Saturday night, but didn’t get out of hand with it. I’ve added more songs to my walking playlist. And I’ve started planning a strategy for enjoying some good food and drink on Christmas without it resulting in a complete derailment that will take weeks or months to recover from.
Emotionally, I feel better. Maybe because of Thanksgiving, I’ve thought a lot about my family over the last few days. Old memories–some of the big extended family meals and weekend gatherings, some just random bits and pieces. But mostly positive, and enjoyable bits of nostalgia. I don’t know if it helped lift my mood, but at least it didn’t hurt.
