As I struggled just to maintain my weight loss this past month, it occurred to me that the dead of winter is NOT the best time to resolve to eat less and exercise more. Maybe we should make April Fool's resolutions instead?
DST helped and hurt. The change made it difficult to get to bed on time to get enough sleep and get up in time to meditate before work. However, the extra daylight at the end of the day makes it easier to get out and walk.
My right hip has been bothering me in the "it hurts when I do this" kind of way. Additional walking seems to help, yoga class sometimes aggravates it. It is not keeping me from everyday activities, though, so I'll keep self-treating it for a while.
Even though I gained back two pounds this past month, I can't fault what I eat, just how much. I have been on a soup-making orgy - the freezer now contains three different kinds of lentil soup - but I also have noticed my appetite decreasing as the days lengthen. Not sure how I am going to deal with hot weather, though - ice cream!
