I had a really bad night of sleep last night. I went to bed with the beginning of a headache and woke up in the 1 o'clock hour tossing and turning, unable to sleep. I finally got up around 2Am and went into the living room and prayed for awhile, then praise danced (slowly) a bit. Then sat down and just felt strange...and sad...and unsettled...and...I don't know...something I just couldn't put my finger on.
After a while I began to settle down took some sinus headache medicine about 4am. I finally went back to bed at 4:30 and woke up at about 7:40.
I don't feel well today. I feel like I'm getting sick. I'm nauseated and just feeling cruddy all over.
And then, around 9:30, a woman, who has been my friend since childhood, called to tell me that her sister died at 1am this morning. She is alone now, having been orphaned as well.
Today I think I'll put the party on hold...sort of...but I ate yellow food for breakfast, and plan to eat green, orange, and red food for lunch. I haven't planned my dinner yet.
Praise God! This, too, shall pass.

Today bunch of us decided to go out to eat after church this afternoon.
I thought to myself, "Hmmm...Maybe Fajitas will be the best choice because the meat is lean and then there is rice, beans, lettuce, a little bit of guacamole, and some sour cream on the side."
So that's what I ordered.
Then our chips arrived.
A few minutes later our salsa arrived.
So we started munching on chips and talking. I was eating slowly.
A little while later the waitress came over to take our drink order, and she came back with most of them. So we kept snacking on chips and talking. About 5 minutes later, she came back with the rest of the drinks.
And we kept munching and talking as she came to take our food orders.
And we waited...and munched...and talked...and laughed...and waited...and then someone ordered MORE CHIPS!
And so we talked and laughed and waited for quite a long time for our food and I got caught up in the conversation and started munching again.
Our whole group wasn't able to sit together, so I looked over to the other table in the next room where four of us were sitting, and saw that they (who had a different waitress) were halfway through with their food! (We waited a LONG time!)
Finally, one plate of food came out. Then two more, but none of us had any silverware. But we hadn't even noticed until now because we were having such a great time laughing and talking and munching.
But someone got up and went to find silverware for us all and in a few minutes, the rest of us got our food.
I ate one fajita, along with toppings of guacamole and sour cream, and then some of the meat along with about 1/2 of another tortilla, as well as 1/2 of the beans and rice. When I finished that I asked for a carry-out box.
Then I drove home fat and happy after time out with friends, which I haven't had in months, and haven't had with my husband AND friends since... uhm.... ? (because of his work schedule).
Now I just need for the food to settle a bit so I can roll off this sofa and BELLY DANCE! (Um, yeah...NOBODY needs to see that!)
So what did I learn???
The NEXT we go, I will have a PRE-PLANNED meal to order and know what it will cost me in calories. (I plan to go to the restaurant this week to look over their menu and count the calories with my smart phone!) AND I plan to fore go the chips while I wait for my meal.
Party on, y'all!

Today I worked cattle on a friend's farm from 10AM until 7PM. When I was trying to figure out my fitness points, I accidentally put in the wrong number and got a trophy I'm not sure I deserve.
I was trying to approximate my time because I wasn't climbing and doing a lot of active things the whole time that I was there, but I didn't think about that until ha entered the first number and received the trophy for 500 monthly fitness minutes.
I wish I could remove it but I don't know how. I don't like feeling as though I have cheated.
