WHEW. Second long week in a row is over, work project as complete as I could get it, and I'm finally beginning to catch up at home. Did laundry, put away last week's laundry, cleaned closet and a few drawers, loaded 4 boxes and a bag for thriftshop, made a crockpot meal to last a couple days--and went out for fun to a Depression Glass show.
Cleaning out clothes was fun! This was a great time to get rid of summer clothes that fit last summer, or at least weren't indecently loose.
I've lost track of tracking the last few days. It was more important to use my limited time to catch up and not start next week feeling behindagain--and therefore discouraged--and therefore more vulnerable to comfort eating, and so on. My muscles attest to plenty of physical activitiy, the house looks MUCH better, and there are no more baskets of laundry, clean or dirty, in the bedroom.
Looking forward to a great week and enjoying the rest of the weekend.

Food Day 28 bad
Food Day 29 excellent
Fitness Day 28 so-so
Fitness Day 29 excellent
1. I am SO grateful that I'm not among the first to arrive at work and the last person out of the building on a regular basis.
2. Tomorrow is the last day of this intense schedule.
I'm going to run the tub full of water and stay in it for an hour.

Don't know how many calories, but had birthday fare at daughter's party.
33 fitness minutes: 2 videos + 15 min stationary bike at full speed, knowing I'd be partying
It's been a long and full but good day. Best part - Reiki on other daughter's new massage table. The first three days of work this week will be intense like last week, and then I can slow down a bit. It was lovely having Reiki done this evening, and I'm heading for bed. No lunch to prepare; we have party leftovers.
I brought spinach balls, vegetarian stuffed mushrooms, light strawberry cream cheese mini sandwiches, neufchatel and walnut sandwiches, and cucumber sandwiches.

I'm a bit over calories today, simply didn't have the wherewithal to worry about it. I can say though that such a day would have been considerably more calorie-filled in the past.
No energy at all this morning, slept an hour extra, went back to bed for some more, convinced myself I could stand 10 min of today's bootcamp video and did it but without the usual energy. I did well to accumulate 31 fitness minutes, even though I was moving slower. Doing my normal Saturday chores has taken longer than usual, and I'm not done.
To quote my southern grandmother, I'm "just plumb tired." Last week demanded more of me physically and mentally than I usually have to put out, and I've got another three days like that coming up this week. There's only so much I can do about it, but I do know there's an end in sight and am very grateful that most of the time I don't have to keep going at this pace.

67 fitness minutes - videos, stretching, walk, heavy lifting/carrying
It's not quite 8:00, but I think I'm going to be in bed within the next 45 minutes. This has been a LONG day, worked extra hour and a half same as yesterday. I will likely have two if not three more days of the same next week. I took a 10 min brisk walk on break, had to get out the building and clear my head. I'm getting a good workout just doing my job at the moment; it's usually not so physical. But I'm not complaining. I'm strong enough lift and carry, careful enough not to hurt myself, and grateful for any fitness minutes I get. I was on my feet a lot today with little time to sit on my ball.
I had a mid-week check-in with my this morning, and still the darn thing hasn't budged. WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?
Food today included ONE oatmeal cookie in the breakroom and eating out this evening. Olive Garden had a long wait, so mom and I ended up at Bob Evans and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of our basically low cal meal. There were choices marked to add up to 460 calories. I added a biscuit, but ate it plain, took the other biscuit and my fruit for dessert home, had a small portion of the salad dressing on the side, and asked for lemon for my potato-crusted flounder. The broccoli was perfectly steamed, neither too little nor too much, and the flounder was delicious. My meal came out to 459 calories,
I'm pleased with my 1000 fitness minutes award. That was one of my January goals.
