Week 6: Good Week, Bad Week, Bad Week

After our restaurant tour last week, I was certain  that I was ready for a week of healthy stuff - good food, good workouts. The reality was one workout and eating that was not at all mindful. I'm not here to beat myself up about it, but to record the issues. I'm a computer programmer. I gather data, analyze, and look for patterns. I'm pretty good at it in my job. Let's put those skills to work!

That said, I've had a kind of busy weekend and I'm tired so I feel like it keeping it short.

  • Bad night's sleep on Sunday night - still full from all that eating, had a hard time falling asleep, cat threw up on the bedroom floor in the middle of the night - so I started the week tired and I stayed tired all week
  • We never did a real grocery shop for the week; anticipating the storm, I picked up a few things on Friday to get us through, then by Monday we knew Husband was likely heading back to Japan, so we were busy getting him ready to go
  •  PMS never helps anything
  • ...
And, I'm sure I had other thoughts rolling around in my head, but now I can't remember. That's why I shouldn't leave these things to the last minute.

Since Husband is away, this seems like a good time to detox myself and try to get back to the intuitive eating mind set. I did get out and buy groceries yesterday, so I am all set with lots of JavaChick friendly healthy food options - I miss Husband when he's gone, but there's no question that eating is easier when it's just me. Being honest, my tummy has not been all that happy lately, so I'm back on the  no wheat, limited dairy & processed food kick.

This morning I woke up to both felines keeping me company:

Not that this is unusual, but they spread out more when they only have to share with me.

There was a light blanket of snow down when I woke up this morning, then a few hours later it started snowing harder...and snowing....and it's still snowing.

It's supposed to keep up overnight, so I may very well be working from home tomorrow.

I actually was working in my comfy living room this morning, watching all  that snow come down. It's never fun to have to work on the weekend when you've already worked all week, but I'm glad I didn't have to go into the office.

There were periods of waiting around, so I was playing with my iPhone camera. I always forget that it actually does take some decent pictures.

Here is Frank in his spot on the back of my chair.

My view of the storm.

Zappa checking out the  new baskets I found at Winners yesterday.

And my entertainment for this stormy day, found at Costco yesterday.

I used to watch Dead Zone, but I was pretty sure there were at least some episodes I missed. The had all the seasons for $8.99 each, so I was happy to grab all of them. I've been working my way through season one and there have been at least two episodes so far that I had never seen. It's been long enough in any case that I'm fuzzy one even the ones that I remember. What can I say; I am a TV  junkie.

Just about time for me to call it a night. Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Some great data analysis, and it will be interesting to see if you can get back to that great intuitive place you were at before.

And LOVE the pictures, especially those gorgeous cats!
