A better day today
Friday, November 16, 2012
Yesterday was just awful. Apparently Medifast does cause mood swings in some people...unfortunately, no one volunteered as tribute for me (Katniss...) so I had to deal with it. I left work early because there was nothing for me to do and I didn't want to just sit there while my annoying co-worker stared (because he had no estimates to go on). I got into my car and just wanted to cry...then, I got home and my mom came down and I just completely lost it. It was something so weird because there was no real reason for it. I kept telling my mom that I was okay and that I just needed to cry. Apparently, my mom was worried just because the way I repeated that I was fine. I mean, I was, but I wasn't.
My niece cheered me up immensely. It was like she knew something was wrong. She helped me make revolution rolls and we watched some Disneyland stuff while we waited. I took a nap and woke up still feeling blah. Luckily for me, Skylar (the niece) was to the rescue. She stayed with me the whole time and even held out her hand from the couch to the chair I was in (they're close to each other) and said "Aunt B, hold my hand." And she held it throughout the Golden Horseshoe. She even wanted to sit with me and watch instead of sitting with her mom (something she never does). For a four year old, she's very intuitive.
I also cheated like crazy. Chips are my downfall. However, today my slate is wiped cleaned and I'm back on track. I feel better than yesterday and I'm not all depressed and stuff. I'm just glad to know that it's just my body's way of being like "Uh...because of the food you're eating, we're experiencing a bit of technical difficulties. Your body will be back and running as soon as it adjusts."
I'm okay today. Honest.
Tomorrow I get to go to the zoo...and watch the same animal for two hours. Two. Hours. Seriously? I understand an hour, but two? Silly biology professor.
