5 days into the new year

and things are going well.

I have not had one deviation on AltShift these 5 days. Not one. Granted this is not a contest to see how long I can go without deviations, there will be some in the future. But I want them to be deviations for good reasons. I haven't had any reason to deviate this week, so I haven't. It's been that simple. I went out to lunch twice and didn't have alcohol either time. Didn't really feel like it, but more important there was no reason to have a drink. At least not a reason good enough to deviate. Hubby has been awesome making great food for 5 shift. I'm drinking water like it's my job. I even went to workout class on Thursday. The local CrossFit box is adding a new class that is more of boot camp type class instead of CrossFit. No heavy weights or crap like that. I tried it out and it was Tabata style; 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds of rest. I liked it. I will probably give the month of January a try. I really like working out again. It's been like 2 years. I was so sore the next day. Even today, my legs are killing me from the squat pulses we did. But it felt good to push myself again. I will give it a go for January and see how that works out. It is $100 a month which with my financial diet is not what I want to do, but I have canceled a bunch of things and that almost makes up the $100. I get a perverse joy in not spending money. I check the bank account every morning and I get a little thrill when I see that it hasn't changed. Every time I go to spend money I think about it hard. Do I want to spend this? How will this help me? Do I really need this? I love it. This is so much better than spending like a drunk sailor and collecting things. I have plenty of things, I don't need more things. Well, this has rambled all over the place. My original intent was to write how good I feel after 5 days of AltShift. I don't feel bloated. My clothes seem to fit a bit better. I put a bra on this morning that was tight and uncomfortable last week. I wore a t-shirt that was loose but had been a little tight a couple of weeks ago. I can feel my energy levels increasing and my focus increasing. It just feels amazing. This is how I want to feel. I don't care what size my clothes are. I just want to feel good and I do. Okay, that is enough, I'm going to go play with my diamond dots.

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
