Metabolisim, wake up !!!

Still in planning mode, but at least today the sun is out and the dampness has drifted down to feeling like you are being splashed instead of being soaked. That being said, there is a plan in the works for a walk this morning.It will help not only our weight loss, but give both son and I a big dose of the Vitamin D we so greatly need !

This morning, in rare turn of events, son slept in. This is a kid who normally wakes anywhere from 4 am to 6 am, and has done so ever since he was a baby. He also likes to eat within a half hour of getting up, so we normally have breakfast pretty early. You get used to that. I got up early with dad, as the damp was making me very achy and it hurt to sleep, so I had some quiet time alone after he went off to work. I was starting to get hungry, but told myself to wait because the boy would be up soon and I don't want to cook breakfast twice. He did eventually wake up around 7, but by then i was so hungry I was starting to feel sick to my stomach ! We had our usual breakfast of oatmeal with the toppings, and normally this is enough to keep me going . Today because I was so hungry before, it did not seem to satisfy.

It got me to thinking about the other advantages of living by the extreme schedule. And then in got me to wondering if perhaps this action has caused my metabolism to get very lazy, and contribute to my stall that has lasted a year? Perhaps if I find ways to make myself starving to the point of sick a couple of mornings a week would help to make the scale move again at long last ?
