One of the habits I know I need to work on is treating myself daily in ways other than food.  I use food as a palliative.  So today I went and got a pedicure with a friend.  Tomorrow I plan on curling up in my favorite chair and reading a few chapters from a new book.

Overall today I’m feeling kind of bleh.  I’ve had heartburn all day.  The house is a mess, it’s back to work tomorrow, I don’t have vacation coming up for a couple of months and my boyfriend is far away.  I’m looking forward to starting to feel more energetic, but I know it will likely be a while.  Luckily I do feel really good about STARTING.  And hey!  Writing feels good too.
