What a week.
Thursday, March 22, 2012
I love my silly little 2 hour a day lunch lady job. It's perfect for a stay-at-home mom. I put my kids on the bus & I'm usually home (cough) to get them off. I never work evenings, weekends, holidays or snow days. This week has been a little crazy though. Thursday last week, the breakfast lady's father passed away. I was asked to fill in for her Friday, Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. Not a problem. I work her job, run errands & then do my job. But on Monday evening, the cook's 29 year old daughter-in-law suddenly passed away after having a heart attack. My heart aches for this family. I was asked to fill in as the cook the rest of this week. Due to issues with finding someone to put the little one on the bus for me, I'm only able to do one of the four days. So instead of working 10 hours this week, I'm working 21 plus the 3 hours I work for a doctor. My poor house feels so neglected. I have got to clean the windows today so I can get the screens back in. It's so gorgeous outside & try not to open too many windows yet. I just wanna go back to my stupid little job!!!
I've done very little self care lately. I'm not doing my normal cardio & I haven't done any weight training in 2 weeks. My eating has been fairly decent though. I refuse to eat school breakfast or lunch & usually pack my own. Quinoa & chicken, egg whites & wheat, Greek yogurt & muesli. MmmMmmMmm!! So that's good. I like to make fresh starts on Mondays. I don't even care that it's Thursday - - today: cardio, no coffee, VITAMINS!, thyroid supplements & water, water, water.
The scale gave me a number that made me happy. I'm back to where I was before I got the stomach virus & lost 3 then gained 6.
I need to take a new picture of *the baby*. My little kitty is not so little anymore. While I was on the scale, he came in the room. He's 10.4 pounds and only 7 months old. I wonder at what age kittens stop growing. Maybe he's gonna be a really big boy.
