Party with friends and a new red dress. It was good to relax for a Saturday night. A nice birthday lunch for a friend on Sunday complete with Snickers Pie and singing. Rich and I had a late Valentine’s dinner at P.F. Changs and an even later movie to see Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows. Good movie. Long. I only missed one plot movement for sleeping. Monday out for dinner with chosen family again. Valentine’s Day itself, being Tuesday, I spent at work and killing zombies and slavers at gaming.

I am watching a show called Numb3rs and between that and Big Bang Theory, I really miss math, science and college. And feel a push to do something more with my life. One project is in motion. Now I just need to set regular deadlines to keep it going. Then get back to my webdesign studying, with more reasonable deadlines, so I don’t get overwhelmed.

Still waiting on the federal tax refund deposit. Then it’s time to get my passport, and get one step closer to seeing K again. πŸ™‚

Week Sixteen September 23, 2009

Four moons of this diet and where am I? I reserve the right to edit this post when I’m not in such a foul mood from today’s work-related problem.

This weekend, aside from my elbow, my opposite ankle also swelled up, so on Sunday I took a 25mg shot of Enbrel. My elbow is still very swollen and my ankles both appear to have very minor swelling right now as I type this. I am back to my usual full dose of drugs and full of stress. It was my zag day this weekend, so that probably did not help matters. I keep saying I need to refocus on stricter eating guidelines and start exercising, but I’m also getting very frustrated. I suffer from a sense of entitlement, too… I want to be able to eat β€œlike everyone else.” I get attacks of β€œit’s not fair!” Then I go to, well, the drugs work, I can just take those and then I can do what I want. But as a very good friend pointed out, I started this diet because the drugs weren’t working, because I was having to take more drugs, not less. The cycle continues.

My zag was lovely party food Saturday night, Bob Evans’ steak burger for Brunch and an early dinner of lettuce wraps and Mongolian beef at PF Chang’s for dinner. I had a very fun weekend with friends and Rich and I finally got to see 9. It was a good movie, I need to watch it again when I’m not so tired, I think I only missed about 1/3 of it.

The week is not going as planned, but the majority of things are going well. I did find reasonably priced Almond Butter today. Delicious! I will be going to Unleashing the Power Within next month in Chicago. I go for inspiration, motivation and with any luck, useful information. My life is changing a lot right now, and a little affirmation wouldn’t hurt either. And who knows, maybe I’ll come out of it with a million dollar idea/novel/business model/financial plan. πŸ˜‰

Food of the week: Almond Butter (yes, again, it saved me from Custard)
