I for one have fallen smack on it and am still reeling from the aftereffects. The odd electrical shock will course through my body systems reminding me that I’ve been living a life of non-compliance for nearly two weeks now. I’ve done moderately well on the food front, mostly meaning that I’ve eaten bennies here and there. However, I have also eaten large portion amounts, a fair amount of sugar and have downed much coffee. I have not been in the pool or to the gym in two weeks and have not been getting my fair share of sleep. Worst of all, I’ve not been careful about de-stressing and taking care of my psyche. This is not to say that there have not been super highly beneficial lights shining in through the deep dark tunnel keeping me from being stunned and shattered on that third rail. It is just that I haven’t been taking the care that I deserve.
So…I have printed off my weekly food portions chart (three days late, but here this week nonetheless). I have stocked my ‘fridge with bennies and a few neutrals (and no avoids), and am so looking forward to Thursday off so that I may catch up on a few extra zzzzz’s. Thursday at home will also allow me to boil a big pot of beans on the stove. I get so grouchy without my beans…there’s not much explanation for it, and I’ve learned to just accept it. At least most of the time there are a few extra containers full of beans waiting patiently in the freezer to be devoured. (*wink**) As for getting to the pool or gym: I’m still learning how to effectively manage my new schedule, so they will be priorities as soon as I can make them so.
Here’s hoping that y’all are having a fantastic, sunny fall season and that you’re lucky enough to have caught a glimpse of the amazing Northern Lights show that has been happening this week. Take care of you and most of all…be well…
BTW—I tried goat cheese for the first time this past weekend and it was YUM-MY…if you’ve not ventured into that cheesy arena, give it a run, you just might like it!!
