How ironic considering I'm currently reading "Wicked"

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Thanks so much for all the comments on the blog yesterday. Some of them were quite entertaining and I'm glad I am not alone in trying to eradicate such disgusting public behavior.

So last night I was woken up by our town tornado sirens wailing at about 3am. I checked the weather and there was a spotted tornado in the southern part of our county (I'm in the northern area). I started yanking stuff out of my closet under the stairs just in case. We don't play around here with tornados. None have made it through my town, but there have been numerous close calls and major destruction in the surrounding areas.

Thankfully, last night I escaped unscathed. No witches were harmed by my house spinning out of the sky, though I always feel like I'm not in Kansas anymore. However, a new random roof leak popped up, which is quite worrisome. I've need to replace that roof for a few years now, but I haven't been able to get together the $1,000 deductible I need in order to get insurance to cover it. So every storm like last night's is an extremely stressful and anxiety-ridden moment for me.

I just couldn't get back to sleep. So today I'm functioning on 4 hours of sleep and I feel like CRAP. There's no way I can exercise this evening. I'd push through if I'd only missed an hour or two, but this is ridiculous and I'm not going to put in the effort for a good workout. Getting to bed early tonight is a bigger priority.

Last night I ate dinner at my parents house. They had decided to cook ribs that were given to them as a present. They were OK, but OMG, fatty for days. That does not equal a pleasing time for my gut thanks to my missing gallbladder. With that and a little tenderloin, I ended up going over calories a tiny bit, but still did well for the day.

Today I'm just trying to fight a cheeseburger run. Being tired and stressed over the roof, the house, the's a bad cycle and I'm trying not to get bogged down in it.


OK, I'm back from lunch and I settled for a oven roasted chicken sub from Subway with some broccoli cheddar soup. I almost never seem to be able to find the soup, so I figured I'd splurge with that. I may wind up a little bit over calories tonight, but I figure that plus a few chili dogs at home (with turkey franks and 1 bun) is a good compromise compared to the gajillion calories I would have consumed at Wendy's or Five Guys.

It's been a long day. I am tired but I don't know if I can get a nap in before the boyfriend calls tonight. I might have to settle for some couch downtime and catching up on the episodes of The Taste and Heart of Dixie that I missed last night. Then, after talking to him, it's off to bed for me.

You ever had one of those days where a sit-up turns into a nap opportunity? Yeah, this is one of those days.

    Tornadoes = scary!! Glad you're okay!

    I have had those days. Being tired makes it so much harder to eat well, but then when I'm already tired & don't eat well I feel so much worse!

    Not sleeping well may affect your binges... It does affect mine... I hope you will be able to get some rest!

    These "life just happens" days can really be difficult on a new lifestyle. They make me want to crawl under the covers, eat comfort food for hours and tune out all the new habits I've been working do hard to maintain. You should be proud for holding your ground today. Tomorrow you can fight for new ground again.
