(((hugs))) Leslie. I hope you get over all this ickiness soon.

Nice to see you back, Theresa. I hope you're on the mend too!

Long boring days at work. I just desperately want to get ahead of the curve before peak hits in another 6 weeks but I don't know if that's going to happen. Blech.

Hi all,

I went to work this morning but I just felt out of it and tired. I actually slept long and hard (as usual) and I think my puffy face is better, but I still feel icky. I did some stuff at the office and then came home to work remotely in my jammies. It's pretty convenient! One of the supervisors emailed me wanting access to the forms in my office - specifically for terminations (uh oh... and it's early in the season). I emailed him back that I just created one for him and that it printed out on the printer behind his desk!! Awesome... :)

I called my client's office and talked to his office manager - nothing urgent so I bailed out on going there tonight. I just want to stay in my jammies and keep swishing my mouth with hot salt water! It's in the low 80s here and the house is warm, but it's not uncomfortable. I just realized I'm going to have to put clothes on to go get the empty garbage and yard waste bins!! Drat.

I miss being perky.

Glad my sleeping is normal!

I got a 2nd interview! Too bad I'm going to be handing out samples at Sam's Club. We'll see??

Just wanted to check in so you all would know I am still here. I am having tons of problems from my knee so I have not been feeling well. I still have a weight loss of 31 pounds so no gain but no loss either. After my knee shot today they said I could start to work out again so I hope the weight starts to come off again soon.

This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.

Watch this about the atkins program.

5 cruise ships intoday- downtown is not a place I'm going to even attempt and I wanted some sugar free candy- drat. I have a case of the munchies for some reason today.

The BFF is going to work tomorrow so I have a solitary weekend. No kids, no hub. The Evil Russian (she's been fishing with her DH for 3 weeks) just got back to town but I'm telling her NO, I have things to do. I WILL FlyLady, I WILL finish the blasted painting and I WILL sew. I need to finish quilting the ER's place mats that she brought over a month ago. . . but even if I finish them, I won't tell her till Monday.

You'd all be proud, despite the fact I've been daisy chaining around and not really accomplishing much, I have been throwing things out. 2 extra garbage bags this week!

Trying to decide what I'm going to have for dinner tonight.

1. Stop wasting time! Save Money!

2. Get organized- mise en place as the French say.

Every day this side of the sod is a good day-
not sure who said it

Subject: light sleep when starting low carb diet

If you are just starting low carb and you are sleeping lightly that is a good sign that you aren't cheating and are truly low carb. This is a reasonably common side effect. The good news is that your sleep patterns will return to normal in a week or so, getting back to normal even though you continue low carb.

I also had light sleep when transitioning to low carb.

Weird thing, I haven't been sleeping at all. I have to take that Zzzquil to even want to go to bed. I walk a lot and I've been Atkinsing for a while. Hope it sorts itself out soon because I am working mornings these next few weeks.

I have a job interview today, its not for anything I was looking for. It seems like a fly by night kind of place but we'll see. I mean, its the first time I've ever had a 15 min pre interview. Weird?! At least its by a Trader Joe's and a nice park with some of the biggest popplers I've ever seen. Was paid today and I will already have only $100 after my bills are paid. I dipped into my NJ trip to buy a interview suit and the powder and I won't be able to put that back in the pile. Damn.

I am trying out my new protein powder, yum! Just proves that I need a shaker bottle, unless I like lumps lol!

Good Morning All! I've been reading the daily posts. Great lives everyone are leading.

It must have been the night to wake up & not go back to sleep for a couple of hours. My coughing has pretty much stopped . . . YIPPEE!

I'm still not to do any cardio until Saturday. Tomorrow is a relaxation class & I will NOT be breathing deeply.

Please keep posting. I relate to so many posts. The cooking pizzas in HOT room . . .not . . Russel you are a Saint. Wild cats in my house to tame them . . .NOT part of my patience. I admire all of your strengths. We make a GREAT team!

Hugs to surround us all as we start this Thursday. Connie

Hope you get some rest, Maw! On the other hand, it's a good sign that Daisy wants to play with you, and not run away and hide, yeah?

Cooler and cloudy here at the moment -- 10:45 am -- and SUPPOSED to clear up later. We shall see. After all, it IS England! LOL

Waiting for a delivery of Shirataki noodles and dumplings - this is the 3rd attempt. The driver said he left a card the first time (2 days ago), but there was not one here. Then yesterday, the driver said he couldn't find the place. Interesting.. he has both our landline and mobile numbers. Again, we shall see.

Work to do today, as always. Got a few more things moved into the outbuilding/storage area, but so much left to do! At least we've started on it.

And when Rex's son, Neil, and his partner Sarah come down this weekend, maybe they can help a bit too.

Anyway, back to work.. and have a great Thursday, Everyone!

But barely! Sigh. I couldn't sleep so got up and have been on the computer. I'll try again. I know what the problem is - I ate too much last night. I never sleep well when I eat too much, even if it's good food. In this case, a mixture of ground pork and ground beef. Plus salt and pepper. That's it. Straight fat and protein. But way too much of it.

Daisy thinks that if I'm up in the middle of the night, it must be because I want to play. Rough. Roughly? Anyway, she needs some manners.
