Tuesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and dinner, 11 minutes elliptical
Wednesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and a chicken burger with fries for dinner, 1 hour gym and at least an hour of mall-walking
Thursday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and steak stew with a mean veggie dip and raw veggies, 1.5 hours volleyball

Tomorrow: eggs and toast for breakfast, cheese wrap for lunch and grandma's cooking for dinner, 1.5 hours gym
Placed a bet with my boyfriend to see who could outrun who - but I have to work myself up to it on the treadmill first. I'm close to half an hour of running but I know he can do that too, so I have to go longer than that before I take him up on his bet.

I've been sick so have not been eating well because I tend to say goodbye to watching myself when i'm not feeling well. It's a pessimistic attitude that I cultivated long ago and just don't have the strength to give up right now. Notice how it's so much harder to give up bad habits than it is good ones? Anyhow, I took my weight down and will update the next time I weigh.

(It's called Reality Bites)
Well. Get ready for a tantrum.
My cold/flu is getting worse. I've been in and out of the bathroom a couple of times this morning. I'm slowly but surely losing steam. Last night and the night before I slept much more than the required 6 hours - I almost doubled that last night. And I woke up this morning feeling fine, but an hour later not even being able to look at anything without it blurring out on me. I'm missing out on my fun activities (volleyball) and it's making me angry.
The situation here at work is repulsive. I've had to work more in one job because of co-workers being away, and in-turn am being forced to take a back seat with the other job I have. I'm trying to do both today. I am angry and I have a right to be! Unfortunately I don't have a say or I would have already said it. Hey legcramps, don't take so much on next time. One job is enough.
I have hardly spent any time with the dog because of illness, and he's so starved for my attention that it makes me literally depressed. I just can't go out in this cold and attempt any sort of playfulness. Maybe I should just HAVE TO.
I talked to my boyfriend about his ignorance of the other day, and he simply shrugged his shoulders and not a word came from his mouth. He expects this to fade from my memory like everything else but unfortunately for him, since i'm so stressed about things right now this instance is sticking in my mind like glue on paper. I laugh at your impudence, poor pitiful boy! I mean, I WOULD laugh but i'm not in the mood right now.
All I want to do is hide my face in the blankets and wish it all away. Since I know I can't do that, i'm struggling to juggle things this way and that. I MUST relax, calm down, and face things one at a time. I MUST learn to let things go. I SHOULD take up meditating. I WILL not accomplish anything today.
