And so the saga continues . . .

Monday, January 07, 2013

This morning, I met with the supervisor. She asked me if I would like to do the proofing work. I said yes. She said she is unsure if it can be a part time position, as I can't work more than 30 hours, and she will check with the production manager tomorrow, and get back with me when I work on Thursday. Sigh.

I walked about a mile and a half. and drank my water. Though I did not get to do my stretches this morning. My cough is there, but the sore throat is less. I guess I am less congested, but unsure if I can get my allergy shots.

I have the next couple days off, then will work Thursday and Friday.

Breakfast - scrambled eggs (1.5 eggs with low sodium american cheese), 1 slice raisin toast with light butter, coffee, Orange juice, vitamins, water.

lunch - half of pita pocket with spring greens and ham, light mayo, and cheese, water, banana

afternoon snack - mini rice cakes

dinner - spaghetti, turkey meat sauce, garlic wheat toast, spring green salad, thousand island dressing, milk.

Tonight - water, an apple.

Night time is when I get hungry. I am going to tell myself I am thirsty, not hungry and drink water. If that still doesn't work, I will find a healthy snack - perhaps have some peanut butter with that apple.

    I like a little peanut butter with my apple-that is my lunch some days and it keeps me full - the peanut butter seems to do the trick.
    Hope things work out on the job.

    I just have a spoon of pnut butter before bedtime. Works for me. But pnut butter on apple sounds healthy too. Keep trying.

    Oh boy, from what you described that postion at the library is really busy and they do need a full time staffer for it :( I hope they can work something out for you.
    Great work with the food! For a late snack, yes protein and a little fat is essential to help with the hunger. But always trying water first and waiting to see how bad it is is the way to go. Your dinner is full of sodium, and that alone will cause you thirst later which can be mistaken for hunger. Are you tracking your sodium? You can set your tracker up for that.
    Keep up the great work!

    Hi DEBORA, I am still sick and still coughing and we went to Portland Maine to see if DH can have his hip replacement next week, They said YES!!!.
    He got my flu bug but since he has had no fever for a week he and I are still coughing. They will do a CBC on the day of the surgery.

    I was hoping you already had the proof reading job. Sorry I was missing in action it has been a miserable 2 weeks.
    I am now needing an inhaler. I have had flu shots every year since we came to US so has DH and despite that. we have both been really sick with it. DH is a sleeper with it, I am an insomniac with the meds. DH is doing much better than me but that is good since the surgery can proceed next week.
    Right Now Maine has the highest number of Flu cases in New England, what a tiresome statistic.
    I hope your job will be approved very soon. HUGS Pat in Maine.

    emoticon Happy Monday Night Deborah!

    I hope you get to work that job otherwise there will be another open door for you. Your meals sound so appetizing. Peanut butter will make that apple and water fill you up. Healthy fats are good for you anyway. Looks like you had a full day of being on point! emoticon

    Enjoy A Wonderful Week! And Feel Better Too!
