Today I have a helper with my blog. Bruce was clearly searching for attention so I set him up next to me on the desk. This is totally normal, people.
Work was ok yesterday - I got my August schedule and was again disappointed. I keep telling Zvika that I just need to let it go, focus on working and negotiate a better schedule at my 1 year review...but I still find myself getting all worked up. I made the mistake of voicing my frustrations to my colleagues and now I'm feeling bad about it because I don't want to be "that" person. I need to focus and not get so dramatic at work.
I don't know what it is about vet clinics, but we tend to have "themes". Like, one day we may have one foreign body after another. Another day, it might be a hit-by-car one right after the next. Yesterday, it was whelping bitches in distress. We literally had 3 in a row, lol. The first went to c-section/spay. The second I sent home to keep monitoring and I don't know what happened with the third because I was off at 6. Craziness!
Food was good
1 - almonds
2 - watermelon
3 - salmon
4 - potato
5 - latte(s)
Not a whole lot of variety, but that's ok. I was satisfied and I do love that salmon :)
Today is a "big" day. Zvika and I are going to a financial planner and then to sit down with the specialist. I realize he probably won't have anything new to say (for which I'll pay $300), but this is the first step in starting IVF. I'm very nervous but am actually more excited about spending the day with Zvika!
Beck day 5 - give yourself credit
1 - I came back to SP even though I really, really, really thought I might be done...but I knew better, lol.
2 - I apologized quickly for blowing my top yesterday (toward Zvika)
3 - I've been packing work lunches NO MATTER WHAT!
To keep up with Beck you actually need to be fulfilling your tasks daily, so here's a quick recap so that I keep myself in line:
1 - advantages of losing weight - seeing them already, 2 pounds down. Clothing still tight and uncomfortable, but I'll get there.
2 - two reasonable diets - Paleo and no cheats!
3 - eat sitting down
Have a great day, everyone!

Yesterday I woke up with a hideous headache and spent the day nursing it at work. I was on surgery all day, so it was nice to not have to talk to too many clients, although I had to have the other surgery person do the only dog spay we had. It was a slow surgery day. My eyes kept crossing and I wasn't up for major, intra-abdominal surgery (by the way, despite spays being done routinely, it is far from routine!). After all of the surgeries were done, rooms were pretty slow. It was a good day to have a headache, lol.
Food was good -
2) cherries, watermelon
3) chicken thighs
I have to be careful of those almonds and potatoes - they are Paleo-approved, but I need to watch it and not overdo it. Right now I'm focused on what I'm eating and will work on how much I'm eating once I feel like I'm back on track.
Yesterday I bought ice cream cone for work - one of our new techs passed her national tech exam so now she is official and I wanted to do a little something to celebrate her :) Ice cream cones are easy, because I don't love them. Not that I didn't have to have a mental conversation about it...but they were overall easy to avoid.
I did have a bit of a blow-up at work, which ironically felt good. I love that someone can throw a fit at me and I can throw a fit back at them...and then it is over, lol. I don't feel like I have to hold it all in, lol!
Beck day 4 - Give Yourself Credit
1 - sticking to Paleo
2 - I came back to SP despite it all
3 - I made a nice gesture yesterday?
Have a good day!

I feel like I have to start this blog out by sending out thanks - thank you to everyone for sticking with me over the last few weeks and months, even when I haven't been able to reciprocate as I'd like to. I can slowly feel myself starting to stabilize again and I look forward to continuing to catch up with what you've all been up to!
Shout out to the Argentina football team - Germany really earned it but boy, oh boy, did Argentina put up a fight! Great job :)
Yesterday was fairly "easy" for me to get through food-wise. I know my calories were through the roof but everything was Paleo-approved:
2) dried mango (not the sugary kind)
3) salad with feta and a sugar-free type ranch dressing from Trader Joe's.
5) potatoes roasted with olive oil and fresh oregano
6) ketchup - sweetened with agave, 100% Paleo and delicious, to boot!
Especially when first getting on track with Paleo, I tend to overeat because I'm fighting the cravings and sugar withdrawals in the first 3-5 days.
So overall a good day for food. I also finished up with house stuff and folded the 3 baskets of laundry I'd accumulated. Overall, a good day. I rested (my ankle has been bad again) but not to the point where I was comatose. As usual when doing Paleo, I didn't hit that mid-afternoon slump and didn't take a 3-hour nap at 3 pm.
I've been sleeping better at night because I wear ear plugs, but yesterday I slept until 10 am! Yikes! Well, I got up to give the cats their wet food because we all know what sticklers for time cats are...that was at about 5:50 am. So overall I slept about 10 hours and it felt great.
Beck Day 2 - pick two reasonable diets
1) Paleo - obviously
2) Let's just call this the "no cheat" diet - I am NOT one of those people who can have a small cheat and get back on track
Today I work 11-4 and have Paleo-friendly leftovers to eat when I get home.
Have a nice day!
