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.

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.

Oh geez, am I ever having a bad week. It's not even worth telling you all about it, because it just seems to make the next day that much worse.

Had a burger yesterday for dinner, then slept right through the night.

Today's plan is perogies for lunch, crackers for a snack, and i'm not sure what for dinner. I still have this horrible cold and I just can't think anymore. I need so much more rest than i've been giving myself and it's starting to show. I'm here at work alone today, but I might as well have closed down the department completely for the amount of work i'll be able to do. Ah, suffer not, there will be light at the end of this tunnel.

Hi legcramps,

You poor thing! I hope you feel better soon. I know what you mean about being alone at work and not getting anything done. Tuesday was a national holiday here so everyone took Monday off except me - I generously offered to hold down the fort. And then I didn't do a minute of work all day! And in my case I didn't even have the excuse of being sick!

Thanks for the comment you left me. I remember you having an exercise bike - in fact I thought you'd converted your whole basement into a gym at one point. I was so jealous! I love biking so I don't find it too hard to motivate for that, but I do watch T.V. while I do it so it doesn't get too boring. The weird thing is that I find biking a lot easier than running, but according to the monitor I burn just as many calories biking. It almost makes me feel like giving up running and just biking instead... I could just stay in my warm apartment all night, burning hundreds and hundreds of calories... what an amazing idea!

I know you prefer fun, outgoing activities which is why it's good that you like sports. Play any wallyball lately? Or how about a spot of curling?

aymalaika on 11/03/2005:
Hey girl. i'm sorry your week is going so badly, at least you seem to be keeping your chin up about, if you want to vent and rage then we are here for that, otherwise just to offer support. you should be super proud of yourself for not turning to food at this point! Yay for you! for me periods of disappointment and stress kinda work as triggers towards my eating. anyway, feel proud be proud and stay strong. it can only get better right?

We all have moments like those, just take it as stepping stones and try for better tomorrow!

I had a terrible day yesterday. I wonder if it was a full moon?

Had to run and buy candy after work, ran out of candy by 8pm and had to close the door to any other treaters, wanted to rest and sleep instead of aquasizing so cancelled on my friend, REMINDED my boyfriend that I needed a ride to work the next morning so please don't stay out too late tonight, called and REMINDED him again, watched a movie and went to sleep by around 10pm, was woken up by my boyfriend and one of his buddies at 2am and had to sit through an hour of really bad, drunken jamming, tried to use ear plugs to sleep but it didn't work, woke up in the morning to find that my boyfriend had left with his friend and was not yet home. I didn't get that ride after all.

Nothing precedes my anger today, but i'm coping considerably well according to a friend of mine. Oh, do I have some choice words to say to him tonight.

Salad and a pb sandwich today so far, with lots of coffee to keep me fidgety and busy. And busy it was...and is.

borntocry on 11/01/2005:
Hi legcramps,

You have my deepest sympathies. Your story was just so funny, though! Had to laugh at the part about the drunken jamming. Sorry you didn't get your ride!

And yes, I think it's about time for me to start getting sick of cheese too. I feel like I've been eating nothing else for the last few days. And every time I open the refrigerator, all I see (and smell) is cheese. We must have about ten different types in there. But unfortunately I seem to be in the process of finding out just how much it takes for me to actually get sick of anything...
