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

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.
