Chugging Along

I find it interesting that when I feel bad physically, I get more depressed. I know that the two go hand in hand. I felt horrible. I was a low point this afternoon at work that I decided to break my no buying coffee mantra unless it is an emergency and get a super pumped up Beyond the Sea Latte (caramel and sea salt) from Voltage Coffee in Cambridge. The lattes are awesome and it did make me feel better, at least to get through the work day.

Since gas is up over $3 again, I have to cut down on driving into work, especially since I pay for a subway pass. This week so far I have not driven in. I have been knitting on the train and I like it. I will have to do it more often.  Especially since I am going to 3 blog conferences and I must save my pennies – Bloggy Boot Camp, SheCon and Blogher ‘11.

As you can see, my food choices today were a little better but not much. I did not eat my points. Mainly because I am sick and just ate dinner 5 minutes ago. Better luck tomorrow. Now, that I look at it, I also had a 12 oz. caramel latte made with 2% milk as a much needed pick me up this afternoon. That will eat up a good portion of the left over points.

  1. I agree that pain and depression go hand in hand.
    I suffer with chronic pain and that is why I now suffer with depression and anxiety. Before I had pain I was happy and going to the gym 7 days a week, I loved it but not now. Take care
