2014 - the year of bat-wing crazy

The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.” ~ Dennis Waitley

So today is supposed to be my last day of the 10-Days of Real Food Challenge. I didn't make it 10 days, but it did make a difference in a lot of my food choices. I had pasta at a restaurant this weekend, but I have cooked most of our meals at home using only real ingredients. I tried (and loved...although I used a Paula Deen recipe) a vegetable I'd never eaten before, because it came in the food-coop mystery bag...acorn squash. I made salad from scratch rather than buying the Dole bag salad (although I did that a few nights too, but even making one from scratch is a step in the right direction). I know it's all about baby steps and I think I am taking some in the right direction as far as food goes. Just need to keep it up!

Had a great BT dinner on Monday night.  Always so good to see the ladies. 

Headed to Groton today.  I have an appointment and then I need to run a few errands (bank and grocery store).  Fun stuff.
Bryan is after me to get a job.  I am with him too.  I have been thinking a out it for awhile.  So it is time to update my resume and send it out.  We will see what happens.  I wish I knew what I wanted to do.  That would help.

9:58 AM: It was sunny this morning, so I broke my 51° rule and drove into work with the top down. (Top down, coat on, heat blasting) . Probably one of my last chances. The convertible is good for about 6 months out of the year. Maybe 7 if I can start putting the top down late March and go through early November. 
Woke up in the middle of the night confused about what day of the week it was. Chris had gotten up to use the bathroom, and I rolled over and looked at the clock... 4:34 AM. Convinced it was going to be Saturday, I asked Chris "What day of the week is it?" Imagine my disappointment when he said... "Well, yesterday was Monday, so that makes today Tuesday!" WHAT? I would have bet my right eye it was Saturday. SAAAATTTTTTUUUUURRRRDDDAAAAY. Nope. Tuesday. I just had a weekend, I am not entitled to another one. At least not yet. Weird. I felt very disoriented. And very disappointed. Tuesday. WTF.
Bah. My right eye is the weaker of the two, anyway.

But then I s[...]

So we all are very much aware that I'm not the brightest bulb, so me going to work today was probably NOT the smartest thing I could do.  I was on some REALLY fun painkillers for most of the day, which also meant that I really shouldn't have been in charge of anything even remotely important.  Like serving opposing counsel with disclosure documents or invalidity contentions...  Especially when those items being served are in 2 different cases, and I was SOOOO close to getting everything screwed up that I eventually sent it to a paralegal in Houston to do for me because I was absolutely sure I was going to screw it up.  Huge thanks to Linda for saving my butt!!  
At some point I really will start working out again...

Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and face your future without fear.
Yesterday was long and tiring. The day after upgrade went as expected. Then a benefit comedy show with dinner after that, which was enjoyable. Hopefully, today will be a bit shorter than yesterday. I'm pretty sure it can't be longer!
3 miles/71*/89*

Rather good day where I got done more than expected. Feeling a bit irritable though. Hubby eating too much of my hard effort cooking. Could consider it a compliment I guess.

Not sure what the deal was last night. Yeah, I ran before bed finishing at 8:30pm and in bed just after 9pm, but I usually nap easily after a run. Flopped around for three hour before making some lo-cal cocoa and eating a clementine (it's been a "hungry" couple of days) that did NOT seem to help with the nausea. Finally did get some sleep, but this is sleep disruption stuff is totally out of my realm of experience.
I've made it two days in a row eating really well and <1500 cals. Even being hungry yesterday I drank water and had some lo-cal cocoa and know deep down that it WILL get better as I adjust back to the normal amount that a person should eat.
