It's been a day...

Thursday, October 04, 2012

It started with my daughter having issues with EVERYTHING this morning. From breakfast, to what she was going to wear, to cross country practice after school. Usually, she acts VERY mature for her age. SO mature, that when she acts like the 7 year old that she is and has a bit of a fit, I just don't know how to handle it. GREAT start to the day, but we got through it.

My one and only co-worker is off on maternity, and it's starting to get to me. I'm a social person, and it's hard not having anyone to talk to all day. The first week or two was fine, I was extremely busy fielding her phone calls and forwarding all of her mail to corporate. Now, her phone has stopped ringing and she gets very little mail. So it's me and my computer all day. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of my own work, but it's lonely. Thank God for Slacker radio, but I'm actually starting to talk out loud to myself. That can't be good.

The bradycardia (that low heart rate thing) has been bothering me today. I've been really tired and my heart has felt fluttery. I went to the doctor, and he said he may need to put me on a monitor for a few days to see what's going on because it doesn't bother me ALL the time. They want to see if there's some kind of pattern as to when this is happening. All of the blood tests and things were normal, so I don't know what we're going to do about this. I'm still being told "it's normal" but there is medication if it continues to be a problem.

To top it all off, I'M STARVING! I don't know if I'm bored, if it's the stress, but seriously, I just want to pour a mixing bowl full of cereal, shredded mini wheat's to be exact, and eat the whole box. AND because of the bradycardia, I can't workout tonight. If I could occupy myself with a workout, I could probably keep my mind off of food. UGH! Sorry team, no workout points from me tonight = ( Can I get points for eating?

And, to round out this craptastic day, tomorrow is weigh in and I'm not optimistic. Sorry this is such a downer, but it's been that kind of day. Tomorrow will be better regardless of the scale. My BFF is coming to town, and we're doing a woman's only 5k on Saturday. Something to look forward to.

    I'm sorry you're having a hard time. I find myself feeling hungry all the time! Moreso than ever, and it is making me crazy. I have basically been between 180-183 for the last month and it's frustrating. My daughter has been so difficult lately, and I think it's just from adjusting to school. Anyway, I hope your work days get better and that everything is ok with the heart rate. I didn't realize you were having ongoing issues with that.

    I had a real rough day yesterday too. So believe me Holly I understand. I am sorry things were so rough yesterday I know it can get lonely at work all day. Can you use an IM program at work. I have one of my best friends on im and it helps alleviate the boredom and have random chit chat. I hope you figure out the low heart rate thing that sounds scary but glad all the blood work was positive. I saw you dropped a pound today so that was great news!!

    Yes, it is fun for a little while when you are alone at work but then it does get boring...only get worried if you start answering yourself in a different voice so you think it is someone different....then there is a problem! Looks like you still loss even with all the junk going on, sorry to hear about the medical stuff, never any fun when you are trying to figure things out. Hope it gets resolved soon...
Hey I say a mixing bowl full of shredded wheats is better then a mixing bowl full of ice cream or chips and salsa (which would be my choice)
have a great day!!!

    But I saw you weighed in and you did great!!!!!!!!! Chin up buttercup!

Some days the odds just feel stacked against you. Some days are better than others. It is hard to remember to keep rolling, rolling, rolling (remember that old Walmart commercial song? Sing that haha!)

And the even better thing? IT IS FRIDAY! WOO HOO! Hope you have a great weekend!

(and DEFINITELY get that heart stuff checked out! You kinda need that heart, you know?!)

    I know what you mean about the social thing...I work with a guy who is a total introvert....I mean a real introvert and I am 100% extrovert. It's lonely. Pandora is my friend too. So I know how you feel...also with the cold weather hibernating feed issue.
It could also be your body trying to "fix" the heart it "thinks" just feeding you will help? I dunno. But here's to a great weekend!

    Hope your time at work alone can do fast. It does make for a really long afternoon. Have fun with your girlfriend and enjoy the run. Post pictures if you get a chance of the race. I was really inspired by the ones from the Mother's day race.

    Our daughters must have been channeling each other this morning! I don't remember fretting about clothes when I was 7 -- I can't figure out why it is so important to her at this young age...

So sorry to hear about your heart issues :( I hope the doctors are able to get it all worked out for you.

    I saw on the national news today that a significant area of the USA is going to be experiencing colder temperatures. Where I am, it's still going to be warm but we have had a tremendous amount of rain. Maybe your blues can be attributed to barometric changes in the weather. I say make yourself a cup of herbal tea and cozy up on your couch and watch some funny TV shows.

    Hang in there Holly! Tomorrow is another day and this weekend will be a blast!! I understand you being concerning with your heart, I would be freaking out on my doctor!

I with you on STARVING today! I had to make vegetable soup this evening to get me some potatoes in. I seen that Beef Stew on SP and had to have something solid. Waiting right now for an hour to pass so I can do my workout.

Hang in there my friend. The weekend is almost here! ;)

It can't be all good days or we wouldn't recognize the bad ones. hehe. What? My mom used to say that to me. I don't know what it means. Anyway. Have a craptacular day today and then get back to work tomorrow or at least by Monday. Don't go way overboard just kind of veg, as in veggies, out. Take it easy and then back to business or you'll be dragging that big ole A$$ of your back to work every day instead of your nice petite self. Get on board!!!
