Day 56 - Lazy Sunday

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I am at work for 10 hours today working with another house manager. I prefer working with her over the other house manager. Today is so laid back and peacefully calm. The other house manager is a drill Sargent and a constant complainer.

But then there is the downfall of a laid back and peacefully calm day...boredom!

My clients are watching Dances With Wolves starring Kevin Costner. I am reading my Kindle in the background. As with boredom, hunger is more noticeable and time seems to slow down. I brought only so much food to carry me through the 10 hours of work and I do not want to eat their foods.

I will be repeating my 10-hour shift tomorrow, but starting 2 hours later. I will be working with two other staff people who begin their shift early in the morning and then later, with the house manager I have today.

It has been two days since I have walked in the mornings and I do miss it. I might be able to walk tomorrow morning, weather permitting, and then head off to work. TOM fully arrived this morning which could also trigger my feelings of hunger. I am tracking my salt intake to see if and why I always gain weight during TOM's visit. I know my calories are within the high range last month but maybe my food choices where more salty.

I will know in several days how my weight is going...I will be thrilled if I gain only one pound instead of the usual 3-4 pounds. Anyway, I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend!

God Bless our fine service men and women!

Deborah, MSW

    It's kind of nice that you can still do some fun stuff while working. Being on the computer here at Sparkspeople and reading doesn't sound half bad. LOL

    Well reading would make up for some boredom won't it? Good on you for taking your own food and watching you salt intake.
