Sat 2/9 Day 40. SO tired. Took a 2 hr nap and didn't get nearly as much done as I needed to.
Sun 2/10 Day 41. Wonderful what extra rest does for you. I'm glad I chose to sleep yesterday. I'll be in better shape Monday morning for having gotten caught up some. I'm working my way down the To Do list before I leave on Thursday for my 8 day retreat.
Good choices today - only coffee and fat-free cream after Meeting (Quaker), and tasty healthy fare with guests for lunch. They thoroughly enjoyed my veggie-filled pea soup. Made Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice Cake for dessert. It was still warm when we ate it.
Funny moment this morning, thanks to our two younger cats: Mickey chased Grayce into a paper grocery bag, favorite cat hideout. That's funny enough, but it got lots better when Mickey sat on the open end of the bag, trapping Grayce inside and jumping on her. She is so rowdy and pesters the other two so often that it's really funny to watch her get a come- uppance.

Hugely busy day; two girlfriend dates after work, so this may be my only chance on lunch break to check in.
Food - more for breakfast than I realized, but I wasn't hungry all morning, and I really needed it to fuel me for work. I WILL MAKE GOOD CHOICES LATER. You hear me???
Fitness - nothing first thing, too tired, dragged self out the door. Did some stretching in office and then...was given a large copying task. Hm. The office is pretty much empty today except for me and two secretaries. Hm. Looking around; there's no one to watch. OK, get moving! The copier isn't an inspiring dance partner, but I made the most of the 20 min it and I were working together. That was a really good cardio workout! I'm glad there wasn't a mirror!

This week has felt so long, ever since Monday. I've had a hard time keeping up with things. Work has been mentally tiring, and I finally got in a short nap today when I got home. A couple of times I've had to choose between staying up and keeping up with SP or letting it go and going to bed. I've chosen bed knowing I can do only so much, and that when I'm stressed, whatever rest I can get is priority.
I've managed to get in at least a couple of short workouts, better than none, and eaten OK which isn't bad considering what overwhelm usually does to me. Those better habits are standing me in good stead now.
A week from today I will be spending the first of eight days on a silent retreat. I am so glad I made those plans awhile back, not knowing how much I'd need them. Here's a short gratitude list for today:
1. That I'm not flying to Boston this weekend
2. That I have only a week to go, and barring any more big projects, should have the last of the current ones completed before I go
3. For daughter's moving plans coming together and that husband is going to fly out with her and her two cats who get to be carry-ons
4. For beautiful crystal heart necklace from husband
5. That husband's cooking skills are coming along. He can do two crockpot meals and can steam vegetables
6. That I didn't have to be anywhere tonight
7. For good progress on current work project
8. For remembering to take breaks today
