Off Kilter

My mood has been up and down this evening and I also feel like I have been on a bit of a carbohydrate kick all day. I’m not sure if one is related to the other or not. I think it is best if I just go to bed; hopefully sleep will get me back to more of an even keel. First, a quick hello to Jujulime – a brand new blogger – who decided to join the Christmas Challenge today. Thanks again to everyone for signing up!

  1. Good Morning, 200.4!!! Soooo close!!!
    I definitely believe there's a correlation between carbs and mood but I'm not sure which feeds the other one yet.
    Hope you're feeling more on an even keel today.

  2. I am so not capable of "1 bite of a calorie reduced chocolate chip banana loaf". That's great that you can just have a taste!

    Seems like aside from one little bite of dessert, the carbs you're eating are whole grain and healthy! Hope the mood thing is just fleeting and goes away soon.

  3. I go carb crazy around TOM. Of course I am in the throws of menopause so my TOM is all over the map. I dove into a Costco sized bag of my husband's chips a couple of weeks ago - hormones - horrible partners in crime for us.

  4. Yeah, I'm not sure what the deal was with the mood and carbs. So far I am feeling a bit better today, so hopefully things will be a little more balanced.

  5. I also go carb crazy around TOM. It's ridiculous and hard to control. Blah! I hope you get a good sleep and feel better when you wake up.
