We’re just about at the end of another week so I figured it was time to post a little update. I know I haven’t been posting as much as I had been. Seems like I come home from work just exhausted every night. I do what I have to do at home, get online for just a bit, then head upstairs to bed around 7 or 7:30. That’s ridiculously early, isn’t it? But that’s the only way I can make it through the next day at work.
This was kind of an odd week at work. We had two managers on vacation at the same time. Believe me, I put in enough hours to cover for both of them. I ended up calling our DM early in the week to okay overtime for myself. I knew there was no way to get the work done in only 40 hours. And yes, I know, overtime is probably one of the last things I should be doing for my health right now.
I finally broke down and ordered a juicer after researching them for weeks and weeks…debating myself about whether or not I would actually use one enough to justify spending the money. I finally decided to take the plunge…I’ve really had no appetite of late and often find myself consuming 800-1000 calories a day. I know enough about nutrition to understand that’s not likely enough to get proper nutrition…so…the magic elixir steps in…juice. I haven’t used it yet although I did unpack it this morning, washed it, and read through the instruction booklet (ooh…I see all my guy friends rolling their eyes at that!!). I’m getting ready to make a juice recipe that I found on SparkPeople.com that has a lot of veggies in it as well as an apple. I’ll let you know how my juicing experiment goes.
One very positive note, I’ve managed to lose some weight…18 pounds in the past couple of months…see, there are a few advantages in being sick!!
