It is so funny how sometimes even the best intentions just aren’t good enough. I stayed up Sunday night until 2:45 a.m. (Pacific Time!) re-reading Harry Potter #4…again. I had re-read #5 in January and needed to escape last week. My solace was found inside the pages of that enormous tome. However, I had work to do for my consulting job on Monday morning and of course, a full day and night of classes afterwards. Being sleepy was not on my list of things to do this week. But I did still get to the pool and completed the entire workout. I only had one cup of coffee in the morning, and guzzled green tea and water for the rest of the day. I didn’t have too much food with me, but didn’t buy anything from the campus junk either. So what I’m rambling about is that my best intentions were to get to bed early on Sunday for a fresh start to the week, and eat Tier 2 bennies to drop weight. At least what I ate were bennies…and the sleep will just have to come over the next couple of days. Sadly, today finds me unable to really cook again (more consulting work to do), so I’ll be heavy on the fruit and leaner on the veggies. Fuhget’tabout any meat…no time to cook flesh until Wednesday.
And now, to make matters somewhat confusing…I am writing this at 11:47 pm PT on Tuesday night. So it’s almost Wednesday already, the post will read Wednesday 3 am ET and I’m a wreck. I’ve been caught up under the tidal wave of this Master’s work and consulting job and I haven’t been able to catch any air. I didn't even get to vote today because I forgot to file a change of address to get my new polling place. Not that I was anywhere near home long enough today to go exercise my civic duty. Tomorrow, today, whatever…Wednesday! Is my day “off” with no classes to go to, just a day to do paperwork, errands and research. Yeah, that’s not happening this week. I have to get my taxes done, but they’re a million miles away because nothing is close in LA, especially when you’ve lived all over it. So what does this mean for the BTD? I ate another whole box of Girl Scout cookies, that what it means!! And I’m not going to get to go to the market for veggies tomorrow, that’s what else it means!! And I won’t get caught up on sleep, and I’ve got enormous boils erupting on my face because of the bad food I’ve been eating but…at the very least…I have been in the pool every day, so there’s something.
Okay, so these blogs were supposed to be honest (if not edited…sorry!) and that’s what you’ve gotten all along from me, but today’s is honest and fuming…I wanted it to get out there and if I took the times to get the fumes out, it wouldn’t get submitted until, oh, I don’t know, Friday!! So I promise that my next blog won’t find me feeling sorry for myself…and within the next couple of entries, I’ll share my infinite wisdom for time management, self-love, happy, healthy eating and creating a balanced life. And if it’s not really infinite wisdom, but trial and error learning...you’ll get the idea just the same.
