Day 13 - Oops, I Forgot to Eat!

Not a problem here. Already have alarms set for fuel times.

Day 14 - Morning Affects Evening

I do eat breakfast. Often I am very tired and hungry in the late afternoon and evening. I can follow the recommendation to ALWAYS eat an afternoon snack at 3:30ish that includes protein.


Yesterday was not a good day in terms of eating and watching TV. Actually, it may even be my worst ever. Watched 8 episodes from Netflix DVDs of NCIS. No idea how much food I ate.

Today is a new day. And it is actually a whole day off from work and appointments and have-to running around. I will try to resist the inclination to "should on myself", to feel like I *have* to go visit my mother. I just moved her yesterday to a new rehab place. She has people taking care of her. I need to take care of myself.

Before I even got out of bed I wrote down a list of some of the things on my mind, everything I feel like I *have* to or *should* do. It's a long one. At least 20 itmes just off the top of worrier's head.

What I really want is for my husband to start a new job. The money stuff really weighs on me. I can't find him a job. His being depressed about all this - I can't fix it. I love the guy, but he has never been a go getter. He is working with recruiters and OL resources. I am going to ask him to try going the community college each day this coming week to work on keeping his skills fresh with a particular solid modeling computer program.

I've been stuck on what do with some gift and thank you money my mother has given us. It won't solve our financial problems. Plus it was meant to be a gift, for fun or little splurges. I don't know that I want to have to make the effort to figure out if we want to buy camping stuff. I am thinking about using it for race fees as I have been saying no to myself about registering for more races because we don't have the money. And the idea of racing, of meeting the criteria to become a Half (marathon) Fanatic at levels one and three keeps coming up.

    It's always hard to motivate someone that cannot motivate themselves. emoticon

    Every ten minutes of viewing Netflix online streaming (only have that, cheaper) I stand up and walk/jog in place for 3 min.

    I admit, I am not watching so much as I get tired!

    I do hope a job somewhere opens up for your husband.
    Not sure what his line of work is, but do hope some job opens up for him.

    I like your plan for the money! I always used bonuses for dance workshops - and now racing.
    As for your should list, leave it alone today and just enjoy the day. emoticon
