Why the hell is it so hard for me to stay focused on diet and exercise under stress?! The kind of food choices I gravitate towards are never good ones when I am under stress. The problem is, my body physically rejects bad food.. my stomach feels like its gripped in a vice, I get nauseous, I have no energy, my horrid sleeping habits return (maybe you like staying awake for 6 days with no sleep, having your eyes twitch, and looking like you could play the lead in Dawn of the Dead… but I don’t!), and I gain weight! All of that makes me feel like crap physically and if I gain weight.. then comes the whole mental mind fuck game.. So why can’t I just pull it together and eat good food!? Since we went away for our anniversary I have had the WORST time getting back on track.. I am gaining and losing the same 8lbs over and over again.
Since we have been gone most of this month, there is a months worth of chores to do.. loads upon loads of laundry, vacuuming, cleaning, organizing, etc.. There isn’t a single room in our apartment that doesn’t need SOMETHING done to it. Bella had a little tummy trouble last night (side effects from anesthesia) so I had to wake up, clean the carpet, wash the bed linens, make sure she ate something, etc… my poor baby!! She was very groggy last night and didn’t really understand what was happening to her, all she knew was her mouth and ears hurt. I let some of her dry food soak in hot water so it would be soft for her to eat this morning.. she ate about 1/2c and I have another 1/2c soaking now for her to eat in a few hours… She is feeling much better today.. sore but much better.
I don’t know if I have blogged about this yet or not(?) but Sergey and I have been looking for a car and we have decided on a VW Rabbit. We went down on Monday to see if we could get the one we are looking for (apparently white is hard to come by!) and the dealership found one at a car port that was coming to Michigan but to mark the car as sold we had to give a refundable deposit and wait for the call to tell us that our Rabbit was ours. We got that call today! So we ended up getting the Rabbit with all the features + Sunroof that will arrive to us in 2-3 weeks! I’m excited as this was the first thing we wanted to tackle before we took out a mortgage on a house.. which means we are one step closer to buying!!
