What a rough weekend. First, the pipes in our house froze. And then the thermostat died. Finally, the thermostat was fixed, which caused a chain reaction with the pipes, which immediately burst as soon as the thermostat was in operating order.
So we have heat, but no running water.
I classify myself as an emotional eater. When I’m happy, I eat. When I’m sad, I pig out. Come to think of it, I don’t think there has been many times in my life where I was legitimately starving. Even when I lived in a shelter in New Mexico I was always well-fed.
Anyway, getting back to the subject at hand…I’m such an emotional eater that this weekend I had a complete carbohydrate and calorie blow-out. I ate anything and everything that I wanted to eat without the messy guilt feelings. Well, maybe a LITTLE guilt, but for the most part, I ate well.
Today is a new day, even if we do not have running water at the moment. For breakfast I had 2 medium-sized over easy eggs (no toast like I usually have with my eggs). For lunch I had two pancakes (left over from my daughter’s breakfast) and 16 ounces of apple juice. I’ve been nursing a 24 ounce bottle of water all day.
I am waiting for my 7 day Shred to arrive in the mail. Sherry got hers in today, and we ordered a scale.
