Today wasn’t bad.
I had a good breakfast, an okay lunch, and a bad dinner. I still only ate until I was satisfied and didn’t go too far over my calories on Sparkpeople. And I stayed in range for fat, carbs, and protein. I really like Sparkpeople. Have I mentioned that? Because I do.
I did make myself work out last night, by the way. I did 1 mile of Walk at Home and about 10 minutes of Bob Harper’s r-i-d-i-c yoga video (not the Biggest Loser one. Bob’s Inside-Out Method one.)
I took the steps today. A lot. Normally, I take the elevator anytime I have to go upstairs because it’s three feet from my office. The stairs are on the opposite side of the building. By the time I go to the stairs, go upstairs, come down the stairs, and get back to my office I generally have a line of customers. It’s just quicker to take the elevator. However..
I almost got stuck in the elevator today. It always stops about an inch below where it’s supposed to be at either floor, anyway. You’d think I’d know not to go on it. I’m scared of elevators as it is and this one has always creeped me out to begin with. Today, I went upstairs to get my cash box and the freaking door wouldn’t open. I almost had a panic attack. That was that for using the elevator.
So, here I am. It’s 9:20 on a Thursday night and I’m already in bed. I’m an old lady. An old lady who has to work 11 hours tomorrow. And 9 hours Saturday with no break. Did you know that Pennsylvania employers don’t have to give you a break over 18? Doesn’t matter if you’re working 8 hours or 18 hours. They’re not legally required to give you a break. That’s bullshit.
My mom’s taking me out to eat again tomorrow. I really need to stop eating fried things. They upset my tummy and I don’t want to ever have to use the bathroom at a JoAnn Fabrics again. Why do craft stores always have the absolute worst bathrooms? Seriously.
I have IBS, by the way. This means I poop a lot. Nearly every food I eat makes my stomach upset. Fried foods, dairy products, leafy greens. You name it. You wanted to know that. Anyway, I once thought about making a blog that just reviewed public bathrooms. I’ve seen the worst and I’ve seen the best. In case you were wondering, Olive Garden generally has the best. I like any bathrooms with floor to ceiling doors. The ones at the outlet shopping center near my house has really awesome ones, too. I could poop there all day.
My goal for this weekend is to focus on the positive and to make good choices. I’m going to really hate my life tomorrow and Saturday because of work, but, hey. At least I have a job, amiright? Annnd I even have insurance in a week or two. I’ve been so paranoid about getting sick without insurance. I’m excited to have it again. I’ve had this crippling pain in the side of my foot for months but couldn’t ever get it looked at. Maybe now I can get it figured out.
Also: Snow on Saturday. fml.
