TGIF week 4

Friday, March 09, 2012

This is my 4th week at part time light duty week where I can celebrate the weekend with a TGIF! I worked 12.5 hours this week, up 1 hour since last week.
I actually do not feel as exhausted at the end of the day today.
I do not hurt as much today, at least right now. It is also not as cold out, and the sun is shining, and there are crocus popping up in my garden!

This morning my husband made me a PB&J on 7 grain bread for my lunch, and I had that with a small vegetable juice, and on my way home had an apple and low sodium Colby cheese for my snack, followed up with some low sodium turkey when I got home. I also drank 6 cups of water throughout my work day and drive there and back, and only had half of a cup of coffee this morning.
I followed up my 4 hours at work with a quick visit to one of the libraries I frequent to return some materials, and renew what I have. I am currently reading 2 fiction books, and reading through some non-fiction cookbooks. I ordered a bunch on cooking without sugar and without artificial sweeteners so I can come up with some fruity not so sweet alternatives.

My mood seems brighter, and I wonder how much how I ate and drank my water today has to do with it? That and the better weather. I am tired, just not sheer exhaustion like I have been. I am hoping that by next week the combination of working and physical therapy will not bring me to the point of exhaustion. I also walked 1.3 miles at work today.

Somehow, I feel mostly positive today.

    So glad you had such a productive week and now you can relax and enjoy your weekend!
    It was melting all over the place, there was a river from curb to curb by the bridge club! The ground is still frozen, so it has nowhere to drain off! The warmth did feel good! It got up to 41 today!!
