When it rains, it pours. Busy week is morphing into a crappy one. I'm feeling like crap (likely detox in addition the first monthly migraine), the car is acting wonky, and today mom had an accident. A speeding student ran a light and slammed into her while she was taking a left. She says she's fine, but hasn't been checked out yet. Deep cleansing breaths.

On the food front, things are good. Detox and withdrawals are kicking in and I. am. grouchy. I'm trying not to be and counting to 20 before I respond to something my compromised brain defines as snarky, so hopefully the family will not want to strangle me in my sleep.

And now, back to work. It's crazy in wah land this week.

Peace.

I. am. beat. Seriously just tired. It's been a stressful week and my energy level is on the low side, but I am hanging tough. Walking, yoga, planks, and push-ups have been the routine for the past few days. Mom is fine, the migraine is fading, and my paper is done. I can relax a bit and enjoy the rest of the night and tomorrow.

Hear that? It's the sound of a peaceful yet cold evening.

Peace, all.

Quick drive by:

pushups (standard) 2x10
pushups (triceps) 1 x10
squats 2x10

Tired and stressed, but sticking with it. Slow and steady progress.

Tired, bloated, and worried about hubs. Poor guy hurt his shoulder and is passed out cold right now.

Cardio only today since it was crazy again - 30 minute walk with sprints in the mix. I will be running by summer's end!

Peace.

Hub's shoulder is better for the most part, so mine decided to act up. We helped a friend finish up her move today and are both feeling it a little.

I haven't posted since Wednesday, eh? Wow.

Thursday's workout: elliptical and yoga
Friday's workout: karate drills and yoga
Saturday: migraine, so meditation
Sunday: moved boxes, a clothesline, a trampoline, and a few planters (including an old cast iron sink)

Juice feast tomorrow! Red beans and brown rice, cornbread, and kale on Tuesday!

Peace!

Hi Sherrie! Sorry to hear about your (and your hub's) shoulder! Oy vey, when it rains it pours, eh? Well, sometimes anyway. :)

Are your sugar withdrawals getting better? Headaches, grouchiness passing? Hope you're doing well!!

Hi and thanks, Karen! I just posted on your page. We're both doing better. He just moved the wrong way and mine is an arthritic flare up. I am doing much better without sugar than I expected. If my allergies would leave me alone, it would be awesome. Gorgeous weather = early blooms and increased pollen levels. It's supposed to rain today, so relief is just around the corner.

Glad to hear you're doing better, minus the allergies.

I feel like such a slacker because I haven't been posting in the forum as much lately, but it's my goal to start getting back on track with it, starting this weekend!

Hey, did you get your first issue of VegNews this month? Just want to make sure the subscription you won a while back got processed.

I did get it, thanks! It's sitting on the nightstand.

I walked out to the mailbox today and the Azalea bush is in full bloom. It's fracking February! Oy! This is going to be a long, long allergy season. I should probably invest in a homeopathic company with the amount of money I'm going to drop on remedies.

Have a great weekend.

Gah, it's been too long since I've posted! I only have a few weeks left of grad school and between it, work, the job hunt, upcoming training for a temp gig, and family stuff, I am beat.

In general exercise has consisted of walking, yoga, and strength work in the form of moving boxes, unloading and loading the truck, and moving furniture around. Food has been decent enough, but I could always use more greens. And speaking of, a TBS of Vitamineral Greens added to my juice is a good thing. And Vitamineral Earth makes my homemade veggie broths richer without adding a bunch of sodium.

I need to hit the grocery store for some more produce and am excited about getting some goodies from Vegan Essentials in the pantry. I forgot to use my coupon code (oops), but at least I'll have it for next time.

And back to the grind I go.

So tired and chilly. Temperatures have dropped in the Lowcountry and I am not mentally prepared for it. It's been shorts and tshirts weather for over a month, so this cold snap is messing with me. It may be the cold I;m trying to fight off, but I'm feeling it.

Hi Sherrie! I was cruising the Caribbean last week, with no internet access, so I've missed checking out your journal. Nice to see you're still posting a bit and doing well, despite your hectic schedule. Also glad to know you're enjoying the HealthForce products(vitamineral green and Earth) from your prize package. Nice! Interesting that you put it in your broth. Hmm.

How are things going as grad school winds down? Congratulations on being almost done! That's fantastic!

Take care,
Karen

Hiya Karen!

You got to cruise! Sweet! I'll pop onto your thread to see how it went. How are you? Your mom?

It's been a hectic couple of weeks between baseball, work, and the last bit of work. But class is OVER and I'll get my grade in a couple of days. Unless the group project massively failed, I'll graduate with a 3. something and celebrate it and continue my birthday celebration through April. Why not, eh?

That's right, I hit the big 4-3 today and feel no older than 30. My great aunt forgot how old I was and thought I was 6 years younger and said I looked 10 years younger. I don't how much of that I believe, but today I felt younger. I still feel it right now.

And another pair of pants decided to not fit. The scale may be stationary for the most part, but the clothes are getting looser. That's something.

Until next time, peace.

Juice feasted and walked today. It went so much better than the first one - just felt light headed and had a slight headache all day. I watched part of the 10K I was unable to participate in and am blown away by the winning times. The Wheelchair racers set a record at just over 25 min and the top female clocked just over 26. I'm not sure if I'll top those times by this time next year, but I will be working towards it all year.

And the plan is to hit the sack shortly, so goodnight.

A little sore, but a good soreness. A mix of yoga and strength training today and yoga tomorrow. I'm pushing a little harder, but keeping my current limits in mind.

Grades are in - I'm officially a post-graduate. It feels different. Maybe it hasn't hit me quite yet.

Anyway, food has been really easy and dinner is ready because I cooked a lot on Sunday and Monday. I might go to bed early if my head doesn't stop.

My heart is breaking for anyone in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
