It’s snowing here right now. When I woke up yesterday, it was a winter wonderland. And then it rained, and that put paid to that. It snowed a little over the course of the day, but it never landed.
I was working on more stuff for my graphic design portfolio for an interview I’m going to on Friday, so for most of last night, my attention was on singing along to my entire catalogue of Wet Wet Wet mp3s and debasing classic Sandro Botticelli artwork (I’m not even kidding); I didn’t even notice an inch or two or snow falling. I thought, “That’ll be gone by morning.”
It’s still white outside, and has been flurrying on and off all afternoon. I’m bloody FREEZING.
This is generally the kind of weather where I do what I call “hiberneat”. You know how animals eat in preparation for hibernation? If it’s really really cold and I don’t wanna leave the house, I’ll just sit in, and I’ll watch movies, or read books, or knit or crochet or whatever – getting up whenever the pain in my pelvis/hip/spine/whatever demands a walk around to relieve it – and eat.
I’m wondering if it’s a side-effect of not being on Mirtazapine for a wee while now, but my appetite has seriously gone waaaaaay down. I went into the Co-Op yesterday to put money on my gas and electricity meters (thanks, Mum. ♥) and normally, I’d walk out with a pastry and two packs of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and something else and maybe lunch, too (sandwich, flapjack and a 500ml bottle of soda).
I walked out with a 3-pack of Chunky Kit-Kats and two Fudge bars. £1.40. And I didn’t even eat them yesterday, because I left them in my bag and forgot all about them.
A month ago, I wouldn’t have forgotten about them. I wouldn’t have been able to forget about them. Not only would I have eaten them as soon as I came in the door, but I’d have been pining for something later on that night, too.
I’m hoping this is a sign of good things to come. It would really help, if I’m not being battered by cravings the whole time, and it would certainly back up what my therapist said re: mirtazapine and appetite/weight gain.
The starting date for my DietBet competition has changed to Friday, 15 March!
That’s a few more days for y’all to go and sign up to lose weight and feel great with me, so what’re you weighting for? (Ahahahaha, I’m so punny.)Let's get social:
