Well...here I am...
...with a painful throat.
Kinda weird it came on all of a sudden - one hour, I'm fine; the next hour, I can barely swallow.
Stressful day at work, but I took the time to just chill for a few and be thoughtful about the stress and how I was going to deal with it. Taking that time, even when we don't think we have the time, really does make a difference. I know it certainly helped me today.
Food was good today. The only "thing" was that we came home early to have the countertops measured, but after that I had to go back to work to take care of an issue that had been boiling underneath the surface for a few days.
I cut a piece of triple cream brie (love it!) and one thin slice each of proscuitto, salame, and sopressetta and headed back to work. It was unplanned and on the fly, but I was hungry and didn't know when I'd get back home.
Other than that, I was spot on. I don't think what I did was bad at all, it's just the unplanned and on the fly part I don't like. It makes me a little wary since those are the sort of times that can put a chink in the armor.
Drank a lot today, so that's a good thing Exercise was minimal, but it's gonna be like that for a bit, but I do try to get up and just move. The walk from the parking lot to one of my offices is 1/4 mile, so that's a little something.
Those 18s were awesome! I saw my reflection in a mirror and my legs do look decidely thinner and longer. Being in a new size today was an excellent motivator.
The countertop fellow recommended granite, but I had really only considered granite; now I need to a little more research. I don't like the idea of having to seal the granite on a regular basis to protect from stains, but I guess it's not such a big deal with the darker colors.
And now I'm off to bed. Gotta get the sleep in as well.
