Woke up today feeling completely dragged out. I started to get ready for acting class, ate some toast with almond butter and then I felt like I was going to throw up. The nausea lasted for about 3 hours, and never got really bad, but was bad enough for me to be affected by smells and want only to drink some Gerolsteiner all evening. I was bummed that I didn't make it to class, though.
Anne came over around 8pm to see how I was feeling and to chat. We've both been so busy lately that we feel like we hardly have time for each other anymore, so even though I didn't feel well, we both welcomed the opportunity to talk. She's been going through some stuff with her relationship (I won't call him a BF only because she doesn't call him that) and wanted to talk, and she also wanted to hear more about my new BF and how my date was last night. (It was terrific, btw!) We talked until about 10:30, and then I had to get ready for work. Washed my hair, and was shaking like a leaf by the time I was done, so I figured it was time to see if I could eat some protein. I had leftover chicken and potatoes (yes, regular, white potatoes) from dinner last night, so I heated some of that up and ate it. Was still very shaky for another 30 minutes or so, but then I was fine. Fortunately, the nausea didn't come back, either, but I am still wiped out.
Mike called me tonight, and we're going to have brunch on Sunday. Even though we're just friends, he didn't take the news that I was 'dating' tremendously well the other week, and I don't think he'll take the news that I officially have a BF very well, either. So this oughta be interesting. I hope that he chooses to remain my friend, because he is important to me, and I enjoy having him in my life. We'll see what happens Sunday!
Tomorrow, I'm going to nap for about 4 hours, then will go meet up with BF at his house, and then we'll go to dinner with some friends of his, then to the movies. BF is an attorney, and these are all friends of his from law school. We're going to see "Fahrenheit 9/11", and I'm about the most apolitical animal on the planet. So seeing a politically charged movie with a bunch of lawyers will be interesting!
BF normally works in a theater on the weekends doing sound stuff, and this Saturday he is free, so we decided to spend the day together. The other day he surprised me with tickets to see "Thoroughly Modern Millie" Saturday afternoon. Too cool! And this will be our first 'daytime' date since our initial meeting (less than three weeks ago!).
Lunch this morning is more chicken and potatoes from dinner the other night, and cherries for snacks. I also have another pineapple/egg protein powder smoothie for later.
I'm heading to New York City next Tuesday, so I'm not buying groceries between now and then - will just have to make do with what I've got in the fridge (shrimp and artichokes and stuff, so I won't starve).
