First things first! I want to write about this time change which I thought I was handling really well even though I do tend to get insomnia. Unfortunately I am so out of my mind tired right now that I can barely fake … ANYTHING!!!! Please let this be the start of a cold and not the start of insomnia!!!! Update: The sugar thing is going pretty well. Some backsliding but generally doing well. The piriforma muscle issue is better and I made a lot of progress at first but I’m stuck. I have increased my flexibility to the point that I can now cross my legs (Whoo Hoo!) but I can’t seem to get the last 30% of this problem fixed. Pinky has resorted to having needles stuck in her butt and electricity added to that. I think I will just keep doing what I have been doing and let her find the ultimate cure. I’m not in a big hurry to sit on a tennis ball or hook myself up electro-shock of the arse just yet.
First, ‘cause I know you have been waiting to hear, I am still cutting the sugar and I still feel much less insane. I have fallen off the wagon a couple times and whoo it is hard to get back on. I felt really good for the first month and it was easy cutting out extra sugar. Then I had a stressful day and my tummy was upset so I got myself some digestive cookies. Then I had some more. Then I ate an entire box of digestive cookies.
Hi All! Remember me! I used to write silly stuff semi-regularly about my life on this blog. What happened? I had a rough fall and I guess I just don’t want to write when I am down. I had a big run-in with sugar and it had me in a head-lock for a long time. It seemed like I could only shake it off for a few days and then it would come back and stomp me down even harder.
For a while now I have been taking a Mindful Makeover course from JillFit on Facebook. Every day I get an email and assignments so I can figure out what is going on in my head and change a few things that need adjustments. I talked about the course in my post Noticing and Naming Journal. I have now reached the half-way point in the course and I am supposed to answer the following questions. I figured I would share with you so you. Partly so I can navel gaze with an audience that I won’t know if they yawn or leave before the intermission, so I can assume they are fascinated with my every thought.
Today I received a junk email called Women over 40 Rules! I went ballistic. There was a lot of F***U. I trashed the email unread right away. I have just heard about my limit of ten ways I’m not cutting it and Bleep, Bleep, Bleep Emergency Bikini season, the world will end. Now, I have rules for women over 40. Well I’m over 50 so … What is the sound you make when you stick out your tongue and do a raspberry? UGH!
I know! I know! I’ve been away for a while and I didn’t check in and let you know I was do ‘in fine. You were worried I had gone on some month long sugar binge or was sick! Well I was sick for like 3 days with a cold but actually I have been too pooped the last month to spend any time on my blog. One thing you have to know about me is that my job comes first before everything. Yeah I know that is messed up, but I was raised with the idea that work came first so if you had to miss Christmas or Thanksgiving because of a deadline at work well that was OK.
I really need this winter thing to be over. I know other people have said it but I am just putting the exclamation point on that sentence. I am feeling a little lost right now as The MEGA MEGA Mega-thon thon thon is over and Havva “The Canadian Goddess” won the rowing race. Diane “The Pink Wonder Woman” raised the most money so they both received plastic trophies although I noticed Diane’s looked a little busted. They will punish me if I don’t mention that they raised over $11,000. I participated in the Mega-CycleFit and the Mega-AquaFit and now I have Mega- sore joints. Well truthfully just my right butt cheek hurts today. I must limp or something because I always get a pain there when I do too much.
Today I began my new lifestyle of decadent, relaxed living. I hope! NO! I know!!!! New Lifestyle. It sounds like a new magazine with me in my lazy-boy on the cover. When I decided that going back to swimming more often was the key to getting results with my fitness and stress I also decided to put in a request at work to switch my hours to Noon to 8PM and they said yes. I know I was shocked as well. I mean I don’t mess around too much but I didn’t know if the decision makers knew that. Of course I started this experiment right after we had a time change so my body is going to figure I am working from 1PM to 9PM. I’ll will likely be a complete zombie by the last hour.
