I will not be defeated!

Dear Readers,

From my previous post, I’m sure you know I did not have a great Thursday.

Well, after Friday, my Thursday got a lot better. Doesn’t make sense? Doesn’t need to. Just know that ALMOST everything is better. (Cooking is still impossible for me right now.)

I suppose I got some splainin’ to do!

Thursday: 7:30 a.m.
I wake up with a terrible headache, but it’s not bad enough to worry over so I take an Alieve (just one) and get some breakfast.

I slept well Wednesday night, but I still feel tired. Coffee should fix the problem. It doesn’t.

Before I leave, I carp at Husband. He is quite confused.

9:00 a.m.
I am at work. It is my last day before school starts on Monday.

I must write two final content pages, but the web editor is being difficult… timing out and crashing. Nothing new, I guess.

I must also write my last blog (for the organization, not for skinnyshae). It is a “goodbye” blog, and it introduces my replacement.

My last goal: Train my replacement. She has her work cut out for her. The job is hard (but only because parts of it are frustrating).

Email after email. Text and phone call, one after another. Bad news. It’s all to do with school. I am anxious. I am pissed.

3 p.m.
My head aches with full force. My stomach hurts. Time to go home.

4 p.m.
I’m home. I shower quickly. I do not want to be in the shower long; it’s too hot.

Nap! Brilliant. Peaceful. Three hours.

I make Creamy Dijon Chicken and Rice. It’s terrible.


Friday 7 a.m.
Filled with endorphins after three miles with Ashley and her friend. Happiness abounds! But running with skinny girls is hard…

My body is too heavy to maintain pace. I have to stop and walk. (They’re nice so they stopped with me.)

I feel good, but I also feel fat.

9:30 a.m.
My headlight is fixed! :)

10:30 a.m.
SUPER anxious. It is almost time for the meeting that decides my entire schedule for the next five months.

I cannot work the same schedule I worked during my first two semesters. It will kill me, and I will get stressed out and fat.


I get the schedule I need. Stress- and anxiety-free!

My Thursday got better! It just took 24 hours and half of a Friday. :)

I wish I could go into more detail, but some things are SUPER private, and other things I just cannot remember – like what I said… no clue!

Fitness Update: No workout on Thursday, three miles on Friday and an intense yoga practice this morning!

Diet Update: Beer-Battered Shrimp Tacos and Chips and Salsa at Jose Peppers… I know it’s bad, but I didn’t eat the tortillas or the cheese. The tacos were dressed with raw cabbage, little sauce and avocado slices. I also ate black beans and only a little rice.

Big problem? Margaritas… I know. On the rocks is better than frozen! :)

Back with better posts as soon as my curriculum is set! I have a lot of work to do for the semester.
