I'm wondering if there is any science behind human hibernation?  :)  Really. I am feeling like my body wants to go into hibernation.  We are going through a cold snap in our area and ever since I have been wanting to overeat.  I've noticed times when I'm not hungry  my mind is telling me to eat something.  Yes, that is how I became obese in the first place but this feeling is different.  On days and nights it has been really cold, I feel the urge to put on a layer of fat.  Absurd.

So here is a picture of how I feel:

Not only do I want to eat but sleep too!  Oh please, I don't have time for any of this nonsense.  I have workouts to do and weight goals to meet.  Anyone else know what I mean or am I the only person with bear instincts?

Slow and Steady

Slow and steady wins the race, right?  I am down another pound this week.  As I mentioned in the last post, the month of October was not kind to me.  I had a lot of stress and wasn't making the best food choices.  However, in the last few weeks I've been back on the eating right bandwagon. 

I was hoping for more than a pound this week because I was strict with my eating.  But...I won't complain a pound is a pound in the right direction.  I've really buckled down with evening snacks.  If I feel I really need something in the evening, it has to be a fresh fruit or veggie.  My uncle gave me a sack of turnips and I've been munching on them all week. I just peel them like an apple and eat them raw.  They are fantastic for a snack - very filling.
