Wednesday Check In: Reluctant

I gained .8 this week. I’ll take it. Two things conspired against me this morning but I know that given the WI, I can out ahead.  I got my period last night and I woke up this morning and my calves were so sore that I could hardly walk. I did not want to step on the scale but I did and I accept the number.

My big problem lately is loneliness eating. The weather here in Boston has been snow storm after snowstorm. I have a problem when I spend a lot of time alone, which is what happens when it has been snowing. Boots is great company but he is not a human and does not talk back.

After being basically alone at work yesterday to coming home in the snow to an empty apartment and working from home today, I know I get depressed when alone for long periods of time. I used to think I belonged alone and I was best alone but now, I am sure that is not true. Just having someone to talk to or play a game with would be great. Maybe because Valentine’s Day is around the corner and the weather has been so terrible lately that it just intensifies it.

I know that the rodent Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today so spring should come soon but I am seriously skeptical.

On a different note, I am participating in the Race Up Boston Place on Saturday to raise money for the Lung Association. If you have a dollar or two to spare and would like to here is the link to my fundraising page. Thank you!


  1. Valentine's day sucks when you're single. and its not much better in a couple (forgetting cards, etc)

    hopefully you can find a different outlet to channel those feelings though. *hugs*

  2. Maybe it was a week to gain!☺ I did too... sigh

    I agree with Brooke. My DH is NOT a valentines day guy so I miss out on it too.
    I have 4 kids and a hubby in my house and I seriously would love a week or so alone -- lol grass is always green I guess!
    I think it is awesome that you are in the Race Up! Good Luck!!

  3. Hope you get a chance to get out and about. Loneliness is a hard thing to deal with. Maybe you should have a good friend come over and do a "sleep over" or something so that you have some company!! Hope the weather clears soon.

  4. Winter can be hard when you live alone in the northeast. It definitely requires more effort to get out and about. Hope you find some company soon :-)


I love your comments!
