Yesterday I finished reading the Spark Solution. It's a great book and one I will definitely use again and again. I'm not making any homemade meals lately - unless sandwiches, fruit, and sample trays count - but I know I will in a year or two when I've gotten a couple of my current projects wrapped up. I don't do well if I split my focus.
What was I saying?
Jk, yesterday I finished Spark Solution so for today's health hour I pampered myself with a long, hot bubble bath and a redone manicure. (Bless my residents. Yesterday they were complimenting the rush "cover-up" manicure I did before work - I had to get rid of all the chips, nicks, and scratches).
As the nails dried, I started reading Unlimited by Jillian Michaels. It's pretty engrossing and it dovetails nicely with a lot of SP precepts of loving yourself, following your dreams, and learning to trust yourself and others - becoming more optimistic. I lost a little bit of sleep (about 4 hours), but I'll catch up on it some tomorrow after work. And I don't feel as stressed about work, atm, as I was last night.
Crazy night. Swear it was a full moon. Could've been worse.
Oh, and my knee! I think it was just literally frozen stiff. Ibueprofen didn't touch it. I was hobbling 90% of the night. I didn't wrap it before work because I didn't want to have the wrapping bulges showing through my scrubs, but by 4am when my foot became numb from cold, I got desperate and grabbed some Ace wrap. Goodness! Immediate improvement as my body heat got trapped in the wrappings. Could've still used some icy-hot, but I'm not complaining.
Tonight I'm wearing leggings and knee-high socks. The scrubs'll be a bit tight, but I don't care. I didn't realize how cold the air conditioning is at work because the more I lose weight and regain muscle, the warmer I feel with even slight movement.
But I forget that my general blood circulation is still that of an old lady's...actually, my residents have warmer hands most times.
Doh! moment. :)
