An interesting thing about how I feel cold all the time - when I overeat and binge and eat way more calories than my body needs (a number that makes me gain weight), I am not nearly as cold. Where a normal room temp for me would be 79 degrees, when I overeat I am comfortable at 73-75. Truly weird but it does appear that my metabolism picks up just a bit when I eat something like 5000 calories. Of course, it doesn't pick up enough to burn off all those extra calories.

Last week I had a horrible week food-wise. Thursday turned into a full-on binge, and Saturday turned the same way. I ended up at 7-11 late last night eating a donut twist and a package of chocolate mini donuts. The mini donuts ad 360 calories (60 calories per mini donut!), 22g of fat (15g saturated), and 37g net carbs. Yike! So I didn't weigh-in Sunday, and with my trip to Oregon this coming week I likely won't weigh-in next week either.

The overtime last week wore me out. I didn't go to the gym yesterday and Brad woke me up at 1 p.m.! I guess I was tired! I don't know when I got to bed and sleep but I figure I slept 11-13 hours!

Today I did make it to the gym and had a good workout. I did one hour of upper body weight training followed by 30 minutes of running on the treadmill at 5.2mph. I felt really good other than the fact that I used to be able to maintain a faster pace. I walked in to work from BART, another 30 minutes.

I am taking tomorrow off due to having to get up at 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday. I hope to make it to the gym tomorrow and do the packing that I need to. I'll only be gone 36 hours so I'll just leave two full bowls of food out of the cats. The fish will be okay as she fasts once a week anyway.

I won't be posting for the next week but I do have two posts written that will automatically post while I am gone. There's a fun diet quiz and a book review for The Thyroid Diet. Watch for those! :)

Jesus said "I Am the Way, The Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by me, and no man comes to me unless the Father draw him."

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding and in all your way acknowledge him and he will direct your path.
