I didn't want to work out this morning. Wallowing in self pity sounded better. But I dragged by button the gym, knowing that I would feel much, much better once I was there. And I did. 10 minutes running on the treadmill to warm up followed by my weights. I didn't want to leave by the end of it!
I have spent the day running errands and things. I haven't cried today, yet. I'm feeling a bit teary tonight, though. I miss him, and I know that feeling won't go away in a hurry.
I need to go and plan for tomorrow. I have no idea what im doing. I haven't been able to focus on work since it happened. I'm sure it will all fall into place once I'm at work. I hope. Gah.
Lunch for tomorrow is packed. Gym bag is ready and waiting. Ready or not, here comes monday!

So in an effort to cheer me up my parents got me an iPad 3. Yes, my parents try to buy my happiness. Yes I am a little spoilt. I'll own it. I love my new toy! It is so cool, and I have always wanted one.
My friend tracey took me out for wine and nibbles tonight. To cheer me up. It worked. I don't have a care in the world right now! They were big glasses of wine! She was sober driver, so I could have a few drinks and not worry about getting home.
Now I am watching greys anatomy and playing on my iPad. While intoxicated. Fun.

Due to the happenings in my life (see status updates) I have barely eaten today. I am kinda hungry, but the thought of eating makes me sick. I managed to get some food down, around 600 calories worth. Even the thought of ice cream (my fave) doesn't really tempt me. I am not watching what I eat today, I am just gonna eat anything that I can keep down. So far I have had cereal, yogurt and a piece of toast with peanut butter. There is some fish in the oven, and I'll have to have one because I just got up and nearly passed out.
I did go to the gym. It made me feel better. I ran on the treadmill for 10 minutes, then I picked up heavy things and put them back down again for half an hour.
Now I am snuggled up on the couch with a blanket. A cat should be along shortly.
On the cat note, happy birthday to my kitty, BB. She was 11 yesterday!
Yes, she is fluffy. Yes, I do sometimes bury my face into her fur. She hates me, which is a shame. She loves my dad. Picky cat!

Being home and in control of my food is so great! I can eat good foods, and I can stay in range. YAY! Lots of veggies again today. I am feeling great; Not bloated or sluggish.
I am feeling tired, though. One of the cats decided to have a breakdown once an hour last night, until 4am. Crying and crying, even when I got him into bed with me. He has had lots of stress lately (I didn't blog about it, but he had to have an eye removed a few weeks ago), including having his stitches out yesterday, so I am hoping it isn't going to happen often. I was so tired today. I need my sleep, a large part of the reason why I am child-free!
I went into school today, to help set up our new toys. Every classroom is getting a big TV and a new computer which connect together so the whole class can watch things (youtube etc) on the TV. It will be an awesome tool, since the kids are engaged with technology, and online videos can explain some things better than I can. I arrived too late to set anything up (slept in), but it was fun to see what my new resources will be for this coming term. I am going in tomorrow to set up my room. I was supposed to have a friend come and help me, but she has just text to say that she might not be able to come.
Boxing was good. There were so many people that we had to move from the group fitness room to the basketball courts! That meant lots of running... I didn't like it at the time, but I'm glad I did it. Boot camp tomorrow! And setting up a classroom, that should count as exercise, too!

I have had 4 servings of veggies today. That is heaps for me, usually I am good with 2! I think I am detoxing from my weekend, and all I want is healthy foods. I had fish and a huge salad for lunch, and chicken and salad wraps for dinner. I still had a couple of treats (coffee and half a small brownie with a teacher from my school, half a donut), but since I split everything with someone else it didn't mess up my calorie range. I am smack bang in the middle! YAY! Hopefully the scale will return to normal soon, too.
Today at the supermarket I discovered that my favourite yogurt brand (Puhoi Valley. Kiwis, try it. Thick and creamy with fruit compote on top) has released a new flavour; Nectarine! I love nectarines! I am so bummed that I am too full to have some tonight. I am hoping to have at least a taste before bed. Yes, I get irrationally excited about yogurt... Don't look at me in that tone of voice.
I went back to boot camp tonight. My physio said that I could start running again, and just to stop if anything hurt. Nothing hurt! I took it a little easy on the squats and lunges, since those use the quads a great deal, but everything else was fine. We did fun things, like tire flipping, tonight. I am glad to be back. I love getting my sweat on!
