I've been a sucky commenter for the past few days. I've been so in my own head that I can't seem to form coherent comments. I've tried. I have been reading, and I'm going to be forcing myself to comment more again.

Worked my first shift this week today. It was a busy busy day, but hey, it's money. Haven't heard back from anyplace I applied, so tomorrow/Monday I'll be out passing out resumes again.

Haven't been to the gym since Thursday. ACK. I was going to go today, but I knew that would have meant rushing home from work and I do require some down time after a really busy day with the kids. So extra time tomorrow, may also through in a walk and a work out DVD to bust my ass.

I spent an hour in the grocery store today, looking for various soups for a liquid fast. I wandered slowly up and down every isle (even the ones without soup) and was getting some strange looks from people (me standing hold a packet and my cell phone working out calorie counts, picking up another one, doing the same, then trying to decide which one to buy and putting them both back only to grab something I hadn't touched yet). I plan on liquid fasting for the next few days (IE until I spend time with the boyfriend or Dad again). If it goes on for more than 2 days I will allow myself one tablespoon of peanut butter (protein!) with crackers.

I'm currently watching William Shatner's Weird or What? (I think that is what it is called) And I am thoroughly amused. Of course I love the Shat. I have a William Shatner belt buckle. He amuses me.


  1. Ahh, sometimes that happens to my head as well, and I can't formulate a comment. Luckily, it's not doing that at the moment! :)
    Don't stress too much about the gym and exercise stuff. Everyone needs a break - it's healthy.
    I totally do that in supermarkets. I always get strange looks as well. But I could spend all day walking the isles.

  2. Good luck with the fast, and with the job search too :) stay strong x

  3. don't worry about commenting, i get frazzled on commenting also!
    take care! btw i've done many liquid fasts before, be careful with soups, it has a lot of sodium which can cause bloating!

  4. Thanks everyone!

    Lola Anais, as for the sodium, I eat an obcene amount of extra salt in the course of the day. I put it on EVERYTHING. I'm the sterotypical ED suffer salt addict. Having soups (which are mostly organic with no salt added) will actually mean I'm taking in less salt than normal. Plus I abuse diruetics and I'm never really bloated. I'm sure my body will enjoy the break. I know it's not healthy, but I crave it so much.
