What a Day
Karma is a *&*&)&)*
Falling off the Paleo Wagon
Grateful for the Kindness of Strangers
This week, I fell two times at work. Kind of like giving myself a mild case of whiplash. One side on one fall, the other on the second. I have this balance problem and, when I lose or gain weight, the change throws off my center of balance. I've lost over 9# in 3 weeks doing imperfect Paleo.
Today was my part time job at the dealership. It was not the best day. I had two customers who were irate. One was exceedingly rude, condescending and just mean. I ended up transferring him to the sales manager on duty and the manager backed me up, telling the guy there was no reason to be so abusive. The other was a lady who's been a customer for years and is quite used to getting her way by being demanding, loud and overbearing. When she called, her sales rep had just started a test drive with another customer, so I took her info. When he had a break, he asked me to give the message to another sales person, which I did. Later, she called back and I transferred the call to #2. She then came in and was screeching at everyone. Apparently #2 did not call her back and, when they finally connected, he told her something different than what she was told yesterday. It was a long and loud conversation, very uncomfortable to listen to.
I was still rattled by the rude guy when I took my lunch break. I walked to Subway and had their yummy double chicken salad. I walked to K Mart and bought some almonds and a favorite coffee. On the way out, there was a line of cars pulling into the parking lot. A driver about four cars back started honking and I hollered "take a chill pill!". Don't know what made me do that - I don't normally voice my opinions. Karma got me next.
A few steps later, I hit an uneven and rough patch of asphalt and fell. Both hands, arms and knees. I could not get my weak leg under me. A couple of young people approached me and I took the young man's hand and was able to finally stand up. Whew. I was in pain the rest of the day!
I took some anti-inflammatory, but was still tightening up. The afternoon was VERY slow, which is unusual the last weekend of the month, so I left early. I am still very sore, but very glad to be home!
When I got home, I was unusually hungry. I ate something on plan but was still really hungry. This is where I fell off the Paleo wagon. TWO pieces of combo pizza! A taste of peanut butter! I am still hungry! I have waited more than 20 minutes and the food gong is still sounding....
