I was DOWN this weekend. I mean like stuck on the couch, could barely walk, lost hours of my life kind of down. The weather was gorgeous and I had to miss a Halloween party that I was really looking forward to attending. I’ve decided to ditch one of my doctors and find a new one. This can’t happen again. I also felt so bad this Saturday that I think I need to be checked out just to make sure no permanent damage was done.
I did manage to watch most of Hocus Pocus this weekend. When they pointed out that the year was 1993 I had a bit of a crisis – I’ve been watching this movie for 20 years?!?!?! Oh I AM OLD. But the movie is still awesome?!
Yesterday I made a lighter slow cooker version of Pasta Fagiole soup from Olive Garden. It turned out REALLY WELL. I am a fan! It took blood and tears to get it together (broke a glass shattered everywhere and my can opener ended up in five pieces right when I was putting everything together) but I TRIUMPHED. And now I have lots of yummy healthy leftovers and a new can opener!
We ran by costco yesterday to pick up two more giant bags of the FIT popcorn (I am officially obsessed) and my bf got two bags of Halloween candy and promptly opened it when we got home. Ugh. I think I am going to limit myself to one fun size candy a day until Halloween so that I don’t go crazy, and I will track it too. After Halloween, it is getting donated. I’m hoping the kids clean us out though!
Anyways, I have my new meds in my system and I’m feeling on the upswing. I had a 9am presentation today that went fairly well (try explaining complex software to truckers over the phone, as well as that could go…) and I’m feeling jazzed up a bit. Had some “speed bumps” last week but that doesn’t mean the car has to stop. I have my meals planned this week and I just need to hold myself to some exercise every day. I’m also rocking cute new pants, maybe that is helping too. Let’s goooooooo!
