I appreciate all the lovely comments on my blog yesterday. I don't get 'those' days too often, everything just snowballed up on me and being short on sleep for so long just made it all seem that much worse. I am usually a 9 hour a night person and I have been going for about a month now on 6 hours or less.
We are missing Ferris, but glad that he isn't hurting anymore. We found a resting place for him in a nice little patch of woods that I drive right by most days in my errand-running for work. We gave him a nice soft towel and a box with crinkly paper in it...two of his favorite things.
He was always so cute after a bath, all frizzy and hopping around or burrowing in a towel to dry off and keep warm.
Work was more bearable since the new company was not there, my phone still rang off the hook and everyone still needed me to do this and that, but at least there wasn't the background noise of a dozen truckers there all day long! Lots of noise wrecks my nerves most of the time.
With all the hours I have been putting in at work, I have been eating like total garbage. I even ended up stopping by BK this afternoon for lunch. I thought I would be able to get off work just a little earlier today and it didn't work out and I didn't have enough with me to eat.
I am still waiting for my tastebuds to tell me not to eat something because it is too salty, I thought between the bacon, the burger, and small fries...SOMETHING would be too salty....but honestly, the fries didn't seem salty enough.
Between exercising and my blood pressure always having been in a good low range, I am not too worried about the salt. I drink plenty of water, but it still makes me physically uncomfortable because my fingers and toes will swell up for a day or two.
As for my ankle and knee...
My ankle is stiff if I stay off it too long and a bit sore if I stand on it too long, lol
My knee is pretty much ok, except for the missing skin from the entire front of it! Ok, maybe I exaggerate a little, but it took a two inch square bandage to cover it.
We didn't go to the gym and didn't go walking today. I am just worn out. We did go by the Fresh Market store and I got some sushi to bring from lunch tomorrow. Way healthier than what I have had for lunch all week and easy to eat. No fuss, no muss. I am also bringing lots of fruit with me. The only fruit I had today was a half cup blueberries with breakfast.
After I got home, I grabbed a protein bar before we went to the store. I couldn't figure out why I was so hungry, I think I actually drooled a little when we walked by the precut fruit trays at the store! My beau pointed out that maybe I was hungry because I didn't have my usual amount of fruit today. I felt better after dinner I had a cup of grapes.
My beau passed his pre exam for his new job and has an appointment on Saturday afternoon in Baton Rouge to take his real exam and get his insurance license. He is supposed to start work on Monday! Yay!
I am so blessed and I am stronger than these little setbacks and obstacles. I can do anything with my awesome support system!
Namaste, my SP friends and family.

Things are really picking up at work on the sale.
I got all my paperwork filled out for the new company and spent the rest of the entire day running around rat-killing as my co worker put it. Finding this or that and copying paperwork and other assorted 'stuff' for my co workers.
Its not that I mind doing it, but it grates on my nerves when my regular work falls behind. On top of being behind, I have a HUGE deadline for everything to be done by Friday afternoon/evening, not just to get caught up, but because that will be IT for my company, tout fini.
I am excited to transfer to the new company, but sorta sad too. This is the first job I have had in YEARS that I have really liked. Honestly...it fulfills some part of my little...undiagnosed OCD issues. I love having a big pile of something to work on and get it all organized and put together all nice and neat how it should be.
Right now, all my neatness is in scrabbled up piles all over my office! Argh!
I worked 10.5 hours Monday, over 11 hours today, probably the same tomorrow and Thursday, and I have no idea what sort of marathon I will be working on Friday which will be our last day as our current company.
I didn't have much time to eat much on Monday, today was way worse, I ate cheerios and blueberries for breakfast...mostly soggy because people started coming in to work and the little requests started. I forgot all about any sort of protein.
After a 2-3 hour meeting I didn't really have time to kill fixing up the stuff that I brought for a snack, but someone brought doughnuts and McDonalds...I thought the breakfast burrito would be quick and a bit better than a sausage biscuit because sausage sticks to my body like...well sausage! I ate the breakfast burrito in about 6 bites....and tracked nothing until I got home this evening.
Lunch was worse, since we had so many people at the office, pizza was ordered. I usually decline it because they always get thick crust, but the salesman pointed out that he ordered thin crust for me. I didn't have just one slice, I gave in and had two and I actually did remember to grab the salad I brought from the fridge.
I somehow managed to stay within my calories today but am not happy with feeling that I do not even have time to zap something healthier in the microwave and have to use 2 hands to eat it. I know that I am allowed a lunch break but since I don't actually go anywhere for lunch since my beau lost his job (which was located conveniently at the business next door), I don't see the point in leaving, especially when I have a giant workload in front of me.
After dinner tonight, we went for just a walk because there wasn't time for the gym or pool, I am looking forward to jogging day tomorrow, especially after my meltdown on Sunday. I just wasn't in the right headspace to go, too much stress, too worn out, I'm not sure, but it was the first time I didn't feel accomplished. I felt like I was being punished and very limited. I burst into tears while we were out but spent a lot of time talking with my beau about it after we got home. He is my main support and I have y'all on here and some other family and friends as my support system.
I am so blessed.

I can't seem to get moving today. I was up last last night...correction, I was up late every night for the last two weeks watching the Olympics. Last night was no different. The only reason I dragged myself out of bed this morning was in hopes of catching the men's marathon....which I missed. I also missed the women's marathon last week which upset me because I forgot all about it. I have a terrible memory which really pisses me off sometimes.
I started off with a good breakfast and then got sleepy...I managed to stay awake for a few hours and was wide awake while I ate my snack. Ten minutes later, I was ready to fall over again and could feel everything in my body screaming at me to lay down...my back has been sore for a couple of days and my legs still feel a bit wobbly from the 5k walk we did a few days ago.
Needless to say, I was out for the count the second I gave in and stretched out on the couch and tried to console myself with the gymnastics instead of the marathon that I REALLY wanted to see.
I woke up a while later...2 hours? 3? I really don't know. I know when I got up I felt all fuzzy headed and pissed off that I slept the day away. I got no housework done and had not eaten anywhere near what I should have, no lunch, no afternoon snack, and it was time to start cooking supper already...oh yea, and I had about 8 oz of water all day...MAYBE 8 ounces, if I was lucky. I ate a few crackers and some tomatillo salsa and got to drinking some water.
I feel a little better physically since I started downing the water and dinner was good. Problem is that I just don't want to do anything. I want to sit here and watch the closing ceremonies at 7:30, go to bed and try to be prepared for my busy Monday at work tomorrow.
I'm not going to do that though...with switching my jogging schedule at the last minute last week, I only ended up with two days instead of three. I am not going to miss out on any days this week. I am repeating week 2 of my c25k again because I didn't actually finish it last week and I don't think I will be able to progress to week 3. Going from a 90 second jog time to a 3 minute jog time is a bit intimidating. So, same as being stuck on week 1 for a month, I will stay on week 2 until I think I can move forward.
I still don't want to get up and go, I have about 15 minutes left for getting my butt in gear and getting out the door if I expect to be back and showered for the night in time to watching the closing ceremonies.
I really apologize for my lack of participation in the forums and on y'alls blogs and sparkpages this weekend, I hate being so worn out and fuzzy headed and falling behind.
I promise that I am still thinking of you and celebrating your successes...even if I have been quiet about it.
