Got home from work last night and was not quite as tired as the day before.  But I could feel another headache coming on so I sat down for awhile.  My husband is traveling for work so I am home alone.  I thought I would get so much done with him being gone but I am just not motivated.  Actually, I have been in some kind of funk since the beginning of the year.

I had a 6 inch tuna sub and bag a chips yesterday for lunch.  So when I got home from work yesterday I wasn't hungry.  Then when I did fix myself supper I had small portions.  But I always like something sweet.  Had a couple rice crispy bars. 

I didn't sleep well last night, I had an unpleasant encounter with a pervert on the subway yesterday and it was quite upsetting.  No incidents on the ride home or the ride in today.  I hope I can keep my eyes open all day at work.  I already feel like I could nap.

Last night I got a little bit of stitching done on my daffodils.  It is a small project but I am a slow stitcher.  I am out of floss on two colors for this project so I had to BUY some.  Kept it to just what I need.

Have not failed on my avoiding French fries.  We had bagels and cream cheese at work and I was good there too.  I think it is the sweets and potato chips that get me.

Today's scripture is Rev 4:11 - God created all things so he is worthy of our praise.
Today's OA For Today asks if I am to caught up in achievements and acquisitions that have nothing to do with my spiritual wellbeing.   I believe that is true.  For today: I need no formal knowledge to pray and meditate, just a conscious effort to open myself to whatever comes.

I will pray for strength to not over eat today.
