Eggless egg salad sandwich for dinner last night and lunch today. Is made with tofu. And scallions, parsley, capers, turmeric, paprika, tahini, vegan mayo, lemon juice, vinegar. I got a tofu press for Christmas. I asked for one.
My husband had a similar experience as i did with complaints about negativity (here in my blog). An old friend who now lives across the country. Divorced (married briefly), musician with a Masters degree in sociology. DH tried to connect on the phone after holiday mail contact. He discussed his theories about a better world, so I was told. My DH wanted to know what was going on with him personally. It went back and forth by email discussing this difference in communicating. DH's friend had some depression issues in his life, as have I. He told DH he needs to stick to the lofty and positive (and apparently the abstract) to avoid bad moods. DH felt disappointed and unable to connect meaningfully. I understood how he felt. He's tired of working and we feel socially isolated, and with little time for anything besides work. I guess this is fairly typical of folks in their early-mid 60s.
I blog here to get in touch with my feelings and share. I'm trying to find my way back, as I enjoy writing.
I did weigh myself finally after my holiday splurges, which were a lot less than last year's. A couple of pounds up. Not so bad. I mentioned that I set up some workout videos in SP. Bookmarked a series of 10-minute videos covering the bases. Have not started yet. I guess I should do them immediately when I get home, before I start in the kitchen.
I have been in my job 20 years and was invited to a lunch to celebrate, but turned down the offer. Yeah, I know. Why not?! Not thrilled about being there any longer and afraid that might show. Got no feeling for it. Feel kind of low but scheduling things for myself to make myself feel better. I set up a display of my drawings in my cubicle at work directly in view so I can look at them frequently.
Using an app called Sanvello to record thoughts and set goals for myself. One was to do some SP exercises. Another to start logging in my food again. Step by step we go...beyond the wilderness!
Have a happy and productive day!
