"The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles." Ralph Waldo Emerson
This morning I am feeling like the waning gibbous moon, 88% of full. Okay, so you might wonder what makes an upbeat person like myself feeling less that full?
Well, you see I have finally realized that I cannot continue to just eat anything and everything that I want. I think I am finally feeling like I am in my 50's! But, according to Emerson that should not mean a thing. According to him I am like an old fiddle.
So I embarked on the South Beach Diet. I am not hungry. I eat plenty. The food is good, but the act of eating has lost its pleasure. Which makes me feel sad.
I have started a challenge with a co-worker to get this extra weight off. It is exciting.
It is possible that I am just tired today because of the stormy weather. A good workout this afternoon should pick me right up, and then an evening with my guy will certainly brighten my mood. Hey, I am feeling better already just thinking about it.
