Getting my groove back

Well, I went back to work today and I lived through it. The animals weren't happy that I returned to work, they like having me around even if I am sleeping :) I'm actually feeling pretty darn good and I think by tomorrow or the next day I'll be back to full strength.

After laying around for 4 days I really felt fat and lazy. I stepped on the scale this morning. I probably shouldn't have done that but I thought since I hardly ate in 4 days it shouldn't be too bad. I thought wrong. I was seriously depressed with the number that came up. It's just this side of humongous!!! But it's got me inspired. More inspired then last weeks number did. Yes, it was higher after not eating. UGH!!!!!!

So today I started logging every single bite that enters my mouth. Everything. Even those 3 pistachios I had when I got home. I have got to get a handle on my eating. I know that's where it's falling apart. I also know that I'm not aware of something and by writing it all down I should be able to figure out what I'm 'forgetting'. Also, there is still something I eat that doesn't like me. This will be a good way to find out exactly what it is. I carry a book with me to write everything in and then I've made a spread sheet to log it all into so I can see the big picture. What a pain in the a**!!! But it is something that must be done. Everyday!!!!

Okay, that's my whining for today. Oh that and this crazy lady that kept calling the lab today. She insisted that we test some blood for something. I kept telling her we were a water testing lab and she needed to call a clinical laboratory service, they could help her. Not being completely well I have zero patience with rude people.

Tomorrow morning I will exercise.....

Yes, I think you should keep a log, even if it is a pain. It really does open your eyes. Good luck!

Glad you're feeling better! Take your time getting back to full power, you don't want to be hobbling around...or maybe you do? Have fun whatever you do!!

End of the year

 and I am just so completely done. I'm not necessarily tired. I'm worn out. I'm worn down. My soul has been drained out of me. I...
