Good mornin everyone...so sorry you had such a long day yesterday JB!

My day was absolutely crappy. I'd rather not go into why but the day ended with me crying for about an hour. I'll just say this...I do NOT like being yelled/screamed at. My mom used to yell a lot when we were kids...badly. I hate it.

Not sure what today'll hold. I've been up since 1:30 so I'm hoping for not much and I'm also super groggy. Pain is at an intense level. In some ways worse than before surgery and I'm not happy about it.


QOTD: I get a lot of stuff regarding medical stuff. I have to save a lot of it. Otherwise I get very little.

B: JUST egg bowl and coffee

L: navy beans leftover from yesterday

D: hoping for the brisket burger slider today, broccoli

S: 1/2 mango, veggie puffs, atkins coffee shake and maybe a stick of cheese.

Just keep swimming!

I have frozen dinners like Lean Cuisine in the freezer for when I don't feel like shopping or cooking. After a few days of eating those I remember how much better real food is and go back to shopping and cooking.

Morning all! Ooof yesterday was a long day for me. I really love the job but there are so many things that are out of compliance and there is no limit to the amount of things that need to be redone ASAP. So yesterday felt like a race against time to get some important things done. I was supposed to go to the grocery store after work, but I ended up working super late, so I didn't go. If I recall correctly, I said to myself, "that's tomorrow's problem..." Well guess what today is? I have nothing to bring to work today!

QOTD: How do you sort and deal with mail? I have gotten most of my bills switched over to digital so I don't get too much, but I hate dealing with the things that I think I need to look at and remember to do something with. I feel like I have a roving pile of mail that I move from room to room for a few weeks until I finally do something with it.

Food was on track yesterday. I almost relented and grabbed a snack in the evening at work, but I stayed strong and waited until I got home to eat dinner. As previously mentioned, I have no freaking food in the house, so I guess I am doing an accidentally Egg-Diet... I will go to the store after work and figure out dinner, then.

I did have a DEXAscan c. four years ago when I weighed 146 lbs. I had 22% fat at that time, which the technician said was very lean for a woman. I weigh about 15 lbs more than that now, so MAYBE it's still in an acceptable range (IIRC, up to 30% is acceptable for women (??)), so I suppose there's a chance I might not be not be too, too far over that. But yes - I should probably have that done again. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll go now and check to see what your wrote yesterday. thanks!

I called but they seriously doubt I'll get in sooner. The practice is state funded and they are really really bogged down. I'm on the list though! I hate saying I'm having an issue. I feel like nothing will ever be right. Ugh...negative self talk is the worst.

Just keep swimming!
