    I'm being quiet, eating well, seem to be better. I got dressed nicely anyway, just to keep morale up.

    In testimony of the fact I'm eating well, I present to you lunch:

    Two lamburgers, and a veggie stir-fry: onion, purple carrot, broccoli stems, and bok choy in nothing more than butter. It was delicious. And filling.

    I had a frittata this morning: two eggs, onion, mushrooms, and chopped cappicollo. With all that protein going on, I think I'll just have a salad with an avocado dressing this evening.

    Unscheduled seven-hour visit from DIL and wee ones today. I am now pretty much a zombie. But it was so much fun getting there. GS#1, who turned 3 yesterday sat in my lap and watched BBC's Planet Earth, absolutely transfixed. Lions and whales and bugs, does it get much better than that? GS#2 is making progress in his communications skills by leaps and bounds every time I see him. We are understanding each other so much more. So much fun. And the baby, 6 months, laughed and gurgled in my arms. Good day, all round.

    I am eating fruit again. A banana smoothie this morning, blueberries for dessert this evening, and some raisins in between. Probably a bit too much of a good thing.

    I made them a stir fry of cubed turkey, cauliflower, broccoli and a bit of tomato, with an avocado sauce. The kids loved the sauce. #2 practically ate an adult's helping.

    It's an EXCELLENT rate!

    I'm pretty good at sticking to a concept, and a way of eating. But "eat this, in this amount, at this time" - well, I crumble rather quickly. "Eat what's good for you, when you're hungry, try not to eat too much" - that I can do.

    Although today, ahem, I ate chocolate... Like, instead of a meal. I had bought some bittersweet bulk chocolate (just a couple of ounces, I think) to see if it was acceptable. It was not, in terms of sugar content. But I ate it all anyway... I was out and hungry and... Oh well.

    On the upside, I just bought my first size Small piece of clothing. I'm kind of in a state of shock. And on the way home on the bus, one of my neighbours didn't recognize me. Obviously not one who knows me well.

    And I figure if you didn't gain any weight over the last year, that is a major victory. Holding a position is an important part of this war. And it's not as if you desperately need to lose it.

    For those who are looking to make coconut oil more interesting, try mixing it with a little stevia and some pumpkin spice. Yum.

    November funks

    I've noticed that a lot of people are in a bit of a funk right now, with a gloomier outlook than normal. Except it's November, so maybe it is normal. November tends to be a rather gloomy month. Our evening light has been reduced by an hour, the world seems greyer all round, the snow has not yet come (well, not to stay for most of us), the trees are bare, the wind is biting... I have found that November and February are both months that are usually downers. By my late teens I had already made a decision that I would not make any major negative decisions (like dropping out of a class, quitting a job, breaking off relationships) in February, because I always felt so pessimistic about everything then. November is not a heck of a lot better.

    So I'm just going to encourage everybody to hang in there. This too shall pass. I know there are people here going through genuine, objective hardships, and I don't mean in any way to minimize that, but we can all take a deep breath and realize that whatever our situation is, it's probably not quite as bad as it feels right now. We are all (at least we Northern Hemisphere people) going through a very natural kind of slump and it's probably wise not to take our negative feelings to be the accurate picture of reality.

    This too shall pass.

    I've noticed that too - in others and in myself. I'm not a winter person - I get angry when I'm cold! I went to work today and the boss gave the customary "so how are you today?" greeting. All I could muster was.......... "I'm..........okay......." Normally I would say "really good, thanks!" The sky is all grey and dreary......... and it keeps leaking!

    And - this time of year stresses me out! (more on that in my own journal)

    Anyway - thanks for trying bolster some good spirits!

    I agree. November's colour is Grey.

    Thank you. This is wise.

    I think I am having a seasonal thing going on! Normally I love this time of year, but late autumn 2012 has not been so good to me.
