Day 73 - The Calm Before the Storm

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Today we are supposed to have a storm with flash flooding that will begin anytime soon. Right now, it is dead still outside, dark skies, and mild rumbling of thunder in the distance.

I got my early morning walk (4 miles) in and that was posing a great challenge since it was hot, muggy, and no wind! One thing that worked in my favor was that it was dark and overcast.

I feel so stuck inside the house and I don't like it. Nothing to do but lay in bed and read. I am feeling constipated again which irritates me to no end! I looked into the Vitality Calm from the suggestions of a Spark Friend and it seems so expensive via Amazon! I went to Walmart to find it on their shelves but they did not carry the product, so I ended up purchasing over the counter stool softeners, which are not helping! I may need to rethink this and give Vitality Calm a chance...

I think the biggest reason for my constipation is that now my husband no longer works evenings, we are eating a lot of those heavy meals he tends to like. I may have to go back to my salad per day and make more conscious efforts to eat raw fruits on a daily basis too! I have no issues drinking all my water intake.

I am still job searching and got two letters of "Thank you for your interest, but..." still holding out on the other applications...sigh. I just feel so frustrated that I have a Masters degree working in a level of a high school graduate. I do love working with the clients, but I am worth a lot more with my educational background! If I were very rich and money was not a factor, I would work at this position until retirement...but I am poor and in major student loan debt that I need a new job. Major sigh...

Well, off to eat a mango for my snack... Hamburgers for dinner when I return home from a two hour stint at work...

    Hang in there! Don't let your husband sabotage you. I have a roommate who likes to do that, and I'm refusing to let her anymore. She tried to buy me ice cream the other day and I told her she'd have to eat it all herself, because I was on a diet. She looked shocked that I was being strong this time. Next day it was chips, then some peach mango salsa she was trying to "share" with me. Nope. I'm not gonna be weak this time. emoticon
