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.

Just listen to what my beau found.....I have no idea how he came across this or why he was looking for it.....
Sunday, August 12, 2012
Any change up in my routine always leaves me feeling out of sorts.
Since the gym closes early on Fridays my beau and I decided to switch up jogging days.
Which ended up with me missing a jogging day this week because we decided it on Friday!
I am switching c25k days to Sunday, Wednesday, and Fridays. Gym days will be on the off days.
We got a letter in the mail from the gym....they are having the pool resurfaced and it will be out of order for pretty much all of September. Work begins on Sept 3, will take a week to drain and resurface it, a week to let it set up, fill it and balance the chemicals, and a week to get the temp stabilized....although, while the temp is coming up, anyone that wants to swim in it is welcome.
Who the heck wants to swim in cold water!? Not me, thats for sure!
During that time I will stick with the gym and beau and I might check out some of the classes they offer. We used to do the yoga class on Monday nights, but I don't think that is going to be possible for him with how bad his neck and shoulder have gotten. He makes sure to wear a sling now any time we exercise whether its walking, jogging, or even in the pool.
Even though tonight would have been a jogging night, I really needed a break from this week! We did do an hour in the pool but I concentrated on my upper body. I did try to walk some laps but my legs were not having any of that. They let me know that after about 3 laps, so I just headed back to the deep end. I am not sure if the overall soreness is coming from walking 5k yesterday or just worn out from going 90 to nothin' all week!
I am hoping that the change up will do some good and have taken it easy since I got home this afternoon and do not plan on heading out for my walk/jog until tomorrow evening.
I am hoping like crazy to be able to catch the men's marathon tomorrow, I was quite miffed that I missed the women's last week. I also hope that I can catch the closing ceremonies as well.
