Today started off really well --

I did my yoga this morning, which felt much better than yesterday.
I then received feedback from my supervisor that the writing I've been working on was really good.

The main task for today was to set the menu for the week and stock up the fridge -- did both of those - and then I had some errands to run. That's when things kinda started going downhill. I was stuck in traffic for ages; my cramps started to get worse, and then I just started losing my energy and feeling completely drained.

The rest of the day crawled by. I managed to get my minimum 10-minutes exercise in for the Whole Life Challenge, and after that I spent most of the day whining - did a bit of work, but mainly counted the minutes until I could just get to bed.

What annoyed me was that after all the menu planning I just didn't feel up to cooking what I had planned for dinner (too much prep). However, the good thing is that with a fridge stocked with only healthy ingredients, pretty much any combination of foods will be healthy. Not bringing any junk food in the house whatsoever has been a really helpful to staying on track. Though I have to admit, I wish I had enough will-power to just say no if there was a bag of Doritos in the house. Why is it that even knowing how unhealthy they are I'd still probably reach for them? Oh well, that'll be something to work on at another time.

Shrimp over some sauteed sweet potato, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, and mushrooms for dinner tonight. Filling and comforting.

Been on painkillers since yesterday. I hope today/tomorrow will be the last day I'll need them. I want my energy back! 


  1. I also find it hard to have any junk food at home. It is to easy to turn to it if I am having a bad day. Sometimes the temptation is too great. Hope you feel better soon

  2. I hope you get past all the pain very soon. I also want you to know that I have not been ignoring your post concerning the award. I appreciate so much you thinking of me but my eye problems have prevented me from being able to be on the computer for more than a few minutes. I am going to have to take a break from my blog to try to get something done about my eyes. Hope you continue to do well in your healthy living. :)

    1. Thanks Caron. I hope the pain goes away soon too. It's been such a drag!
      Hope you find a solution for your eye problems and can get back to blogging soon :)
