so i figured out why my eye has been twitching for over a week, everyday, straight. i need glasses. i am very upset bc i know it's the computer and constant overuse of my eye muscles at work, all day, and overtime.

i am more upset bc i am praying this is the worst of it.  i could not bear to have carpul tunnel or anything musculature related also happen. some days my body just cannot sit any more...and my body aches at work sometimes for the constant sitting. i cannot get like this. i hope glasses will be the worst of it.  I want to be a cop....and now this office job is really beginning to take a toll. I cannot bear it.  I am so upset there are no words. My vision was close to perfect 2 years ago.  It is because of overuse, at the computer. and of course i go on the computer a little bit on home. g-d forgive me!

there are no words for how stressed and upset i am.

my bosses give me extra hours and work, since i am taking thurs/fri off. so today, i worked 8-6:30. that is a long time for a desk job, on a Monday, and after the superbowl even if i didn't watch the whole game.

g-d forgive me for the life I have led so far.  I will make myself better & stronger. I will become an NYPD officer if it's the last thing I do.  I want to prove the the WORLD and MYSELF that really, it is very possible, to do things and become someone you never thought you could be.  I need this so badly, so, so badly.  I am doing what it takes & trying hard. But now it's becoming a race against time & time is winning....I am trying so hard, but reality is that my job is interfering in all aspects of my life....friendship, family, health, exercise.  I don't exercise enough and it seems I can't even make up for it on weekends anymore. it's just not enough. tonight i slacked on cardio, bc i needed more to come home and relax before bed. i won't get enough sleep, since I have to be at work at 7am.

my whole life i've done things i hadn't wanted to....and i was pushed out of everything i started to do well.

other than feeling pissed off....but not utterly lost in life....i am freaking out right now.

bc i know that time is running out on me.

my leg/ankle is still hurting...i jogged for like 5 min at lunch, dumb idea. i will have to "nurse" it lol...yeah right, by only walking the next few days until i have off on Thursday/Fri and maybe try jogging then.

legcramps on 02/05/2013:
Don't freak out. Okay, maybe that's easier said than done. Freak out, then move on. There's nothing more you can do except what you're doing now. If you need to rest, then that is your priority right now, so don't worry so much about tomorrow - just think of what you need to do today, and then do it. And then move on.

Why do you feel like you're running out of time?


V on 02/05/2013:
<3 I am so hoping that you get out of that job soon :(

8am: bigger breakfast of fiber one and almond milk 300, protein bar 230, greek yogurt with chia seeds and chocolate stevia 170: 700.

my leg is still hurting, so my plan is to only walk in the afternoon at the park, assuming the snow has been cleared - they are usually very good about it.

around 2200-2300 today. success.

exercise: at least 5 mi at the park! :-) good.

I've been having problems sleeping too...I agree with Puddles; must be the time of the year or, perhaps, this icy cold weather!

Weight: 121.5

2% greek yogurt with stevia, chia, flax: 200

excellent calorie day bc i had a "light" breakfast & lunch (light for me!) of 400 cal and not the typical 600-800 i have been eating at work and home on weekends, lol.

total cals were excellent, 1700!  (i actually lose weight, slowly but always, at this calorie level!)  ...lifting weights is wonderful for this reason!

exercise: decent! around 5 miles for the day. walking only...because my ankle/shin is still recovering...and i would like to jog/walk on Sunday! tomorrow will also maybe involve jogging.  1.5 mi at lunch, .5 miles to/from car, 3 mi after work.  my goal is the 5 mi, but truly i usually get in more like 3.5-4 miles.
