Using aromatherapy and grooming to combat cravings...

I was much hungrier yesterday and drank extra lemonade. I was very comfortable by the time I passed out in bed in the wee hours of the morning.
Scale this morning says: 158.5
I can't believe these numbers on the scale...I haven't been this size/weight for nearly a decade and it's strangely not as exhilirating as I expected. Partly because...I've learned enough now to know that losing weight is the easy part, and maintaining is the bitch. And I've also learned that losing the fat isn't enough, I must stay in shape and build muscle, otherwise I'll look "skinnyfat". You know those people...that are thin, but don't have that glow of health or those gorgeous cut guns?
Sinuses seem to be under control. I'm sneezing and feeling stuffy, but am in much less pain today. Eyes feel heavy and I could really stand another hour of sleep. Stupid cat who insists on running out the door as I come in at 2 ish this morning was clawing to get back in at 7.
Very tiny BM yesterday. I woke up feeling slightly nauseous (as often happens when something wakes me while I'm dreaming for some reason) so I'm definitely skipping the SWF today. I forgot to drink the lax tea last night so down the hatch that goes this morning.
Something very interesting I learned yesterday....when I'm craving actual FOOD and just want to chew something...burning some Nag Champa grounds me and pretty much kills the cravings. I don't know if it's because I associate Nag Champa with my old yoga studio that I used to love so much or what, but it's working for me.
I'm feeling kinda fuzzy right now...I think I really need to try to get some more sleep.
I went back to bed and slept another couple of hours. It's 9:08 pm and I'm ready for bed. That's way early for me.
At a few points today, I thought...WTF is wrong with me??? I could be having ORANGE JUICE today!!
But then I went to bellydance class and saw how my hips look in the mirror, and it was alllll goooood!
Tonight the cravings were pretty intense. I REALLY REALLY want stir-fried veggies and brown rice like you wouldn't believe! I DREAMED that I ate last night!
I will survive. And I'll have a coffee colonic on Friday, Vende double mocha latte with a dash of nutmeg.
Yikes, I'm getting loopy!
I distracted myself from my cravings by giving myself a manicure and pedicure, now my nails are a happy bright shade of hot pink.
My quads are really sore from jogging yesterday, which is really unusual for me. I may need more water, will up that tomorrow.
