I have been craving chocolate covered nuts, of any kind, for a good week now. Last night I finally bought a small box (though still about 500 calories worth - they add up quick!) and ate the whole thing. Up until then I had just been eating "things" trying to quell the craving. Figured I may as well buck up and face the demon. May have worked, as today I no longer have the craving ... but it's the source of the craving that is more the issue.
While I've been active, it often hasn't been with my usual vigor. And I'm dragging myself to do it. Which isn't me. Normally I LOVE to exercise. Normally exercise is the one thing I can turn to even when everything else in my world isn't going well. It's free and it's within my control. Normally that alone makes me feel good.
Part of it is this weather - yes, we are back to rain again and it's really getting draining. Will there ever be a summer? It's June and I'm still having to make a fire most nights to keep the chill off. All I want to do is come home, wrap in a blanket and crash on the couch. It's also due to financial strain, which probably makes the rain that much more depressing.
Tomorrow morning we must head out of town to attend a friend's wedding - my husband is a groomsman. Originally this was supposed to be a 10 day trip so we could have a little holiday too. The wedding is in an amazingly beautiful part of the country and it would be a huge shame to not explore it a bit. Especially since the kids have never been there.
As of right now though, there are so many things this is hinging on. It's less than 24 hours to departure and I still don't know with 100% certainty which vehicle we're taking (car/truck), what we're staying in (tent/camper/hotel), or for how many days we will be gone (3-10 days).
