Yesterday started out as a very positive day. I got up and actually put make up on, did my hair and wore a nice outfit to work. I felt really good and it was reflected in my attitude. I smiled a lot yesterday. Our clients were happy to talk with me. I truly believe you can hear a smile through a person's voice. I really did get so much accomplished.
Around 1-2 p.m. my legs started to have the shooting pains, burning feeling like there were needles being stuck in them. Seriously, I hurt badly. I'd rub them and ice them, but by 5:00 p.m. you could tell that I had had it. I cannot believe this is something I am going to have to live with the rest of my life. I came home and didn't work out, but that was initially my plan anyway. I'm trying every other day to allow my body to rest between workouts. I plan on going tonight to the gym after work.
My eating was out of control yesterday, although I was within my calorie limits, I was way over in fat. That is because I overdid it on the peanut butter. I had it with both my snacks on my celery and on my apple. I came home and made ground turkey with veggies. It was very good! I had a bowl of that, but then around 9:00 p.m. felt hungry and had a bowl of Cherrios. I have to stop eating that late. My fasting sugar this morning was 156. A bit on the high side, but so much lower than the 290s I was having.
Also, today will be day 8 of no sweets. I think I'm almost over the hump. One of the gals at work is turning 70 on the 20th. We are having a cookie party for her. I am making Mexican Wedding cookies for her, but I think that I need to bring my own sugar free cookies. I think I'll do some research and see what I can make.
My boss is coming in today from his two week vacation. I'm dreading it. I love my work, but my boss is flat. It is hard to explain him. Everyone in the office has told me how difficult he is to work with/for. After four years, I agree. I don't think he realizes how fortunate he is to have us. There are three other gals that work for him in the satillite office and he travels there once a week. Anyway, I have him scheduled out of the office pretty much for the next two weeks. He has a heck of a schedule with depositions, trial, arbitrations and mediations. Well, time for my coffee.
